MOA is Minute Of Angle. A shooting acronym for accuracy. Basically it means that the gun will consistently shoot sub MOA groups with good glass and shooter.
And the picture is of a FNAR. The M1A is an older military weapon. Still very accurate and still very popular.

Some Great Info there Silvr. Figured it's worthy of it's own thread.

I'll sure remember this and will also use this info when choosing my next scope purchase too.
