I don't know about 2 MOA, but it certainly should shoot better than 8 or 9. Where do you live? There may be a good M1A smith near you.
There is a reason the AR is so popular for highpower competition. They are easy and cheap to make shoot well. A decent AR will shoot better than the very best M1A and will cost 1/3 of the price. Add this to better trigger, better sights, less recoil, low maintenance and cheaper ammo and you can see why M1As are relegated to nostalgia matches.
By the way, I shoot an M1A and an M1 in highpower competition during the off season (after our state championship in October and before the first regional in March). We even shoot an M1 only match (50 shots across the course) for Pearl Harbor day. They are fun to shoot.
