I've owned a few M1As over the years and can still remember the elder Reese in the then small shop in Geneseo, Illinois. The early rifles were USGI parts except the receiver of course. I had a problem with an oprod so I took it in and Mr. Reese pulled out a tube with a brand new oprod he personally fitted to my rifle. Now the company has grown quite a bit but it's still family owned and they're as nice as ever. The USGI parts are scarce now so they make a lot of their own but they still build a quality rifle. The first rifle pictured I restocked with a beautiful GI stock that I found in the back of my friend Bob Simpsons shop. I put a fake selector stud in it to fill the hole. The second rifle is wearing a Fajen laminated stock I bought from Springfield.
