No really, I would call it a M1.
Actually mine is xx'd out not ground out.

Never heard of an M1A1 that had the A1 ground off. Usually they just "X'd" A1 out by overstamping it. Sounds like if the A1 is actually ground off it may not have been done by a military arsenal refurbishing. Maybe a previous owner or dealer ground it off.
Anyway, whatever type of bolt was installed would dictate what you refer to it as. That is what the original designation M1 or M1A1 referred to.
