Can someone highlight the differences between these two models for me??
Picantinny rail and new grip design on the A1. Mechanically, they are pretty much identical. The new A1 should come with the new extractor design that improves extraction. The original M will probably come with a manual safety.
Slightly different grip between the two, the M-A1 includes a rail under the dust cover. The original M had a manual safety in addition to the trigger safety, whereas most of the M-A1s imported in the US lack the manual safety.
Some of the M-series had a semi-matte black slide finish whereas the M-A1s have more of a parkerized slide finish.
The rest of the gun is the same -- internals, operating system, barrel, and slide, and magazines.
