Does anyone see a reason this would not be legal on a SA M1A in California?

No reason that it would not be legal on a SA M1A in California. It is however not legal for CMP competition.

I have one on my scout. Works better than the factory break and kicks up less dust if shooting prone.

I have one on my featureless AR... works really really well... in fact I used one for a carbine instructor class, I can shoot my reg. AW anytime... wanted to work the kinks outa the featureless as it's going to be my truck gun and I'm teaching non sworn classes in the near future.... anyway...works really well to control the gun....way better than anything I have used before... loud mind you... but very effective...when we had to shoot laying on our sides, I set the grass on fire..! Yeah baby... set it on fire...:cool2:
that's just too cool for words...

Really. Then what is the legal option? I've got a Springfield Super Comp. that has one installed on it that I wanted to try service rifle shoots with. What do I need?

Rule 6.2.2 (7) of the CMP rule book allows replacing the standard M14 flash suppressor:
(7) Vented barrel extensions with the same external dimensions as the M14 flash suppressor, but without the bayonet lug, may be installed. A muzzlebrake designed to reduce recoil is not permitted.

The Springfield Armory, Inc replacement is approved for sure; I don't know of any others, but possibly the dummy FS sold by Ted Brown is okay.
