If itís a native M1a in .30-06 it could be designed to use BAR mags from the get go.
Maybe it would also feed interest in an AR based long action platform (I do see there are one or two).

M1A receiver is 1/2" too short for .30-06.

It's designed for the 7.62 NATO round. A 7mm-08 conversion would be easy, even a .243.

I actually owned an early Noreen BN-36 (DI 30-06 AR-format rifle) for a while. An interesting novelty, but sort of filled a market gap between .308 and 300WM MSRs that didn't really need filling. Mags were ridiculously expensive proprietary designs.

I did some tuning and got it to shoot well, but ended up selling it to buy a couple antique rifles.

FWIW, Fulton Armory is offering an M-14 in 6.5 Creedmore. MD legal.

I was at myrtle grove a couple of weeks ago. The gentleman shooting beside me had an m1A in 6.5cm. He stated that it was MD legal. (Different caliber. )

Yeah Iíve seen them. If it could be popular, thatíd be awesome. Chicken and eeg problem though probably. It wonít be popular unless it can be at least AR-10 cheap and it wonít be AR-10 cheap until itís popular.

But I do think a long standard action AR COULD be useful and popular. A .264-06 would be sweet. Well, as would a .30-06.
