You are correct...

It looked pretty wood-like though... someone just looked at it and said the same thing about it being laminated...

I guess it doesn't help that I'm color blind... (thanks, mom...)...

Still a nice stock...

I have been thinking about getting one of these rifles for a awhile, but I like the straight stock. :)

Yeah, it's beautiful. I had one like that on my stainless Mini-14, and it's the only thing I miss about that piece of shit.

my favorite .308 is my MAS Mle 49-56. you need to be careful finding one that wasn't converted by an idiot, but if you do you will have a rock solid rifle with great accuracy and solid reliability.

I'd take an FAL over an M1A any day. Ergos are much better and it is easier to hit targets quickly for me. Some people don't like the sights, but I find the package as a whole to work better for me than any other .308.

Im currently in the saving for an M1A boat, but my second choice would be a FAL.

Pick yourself up one of these Remmy 7400s. Price is around $520-$630 at Impact Arms.

A quick question for those AR .308 style buffs.

Do they make an upper to convert a AR in .308 back to ,223/5.56 or 7.62x39?
I've never heard of such a thing and didn't know if one was planned yet.


Why have two guns when you could just have an extra upper and a few mags?

You have a standard AR-15 lower which can accept an upper chambered in, essentially, whatever caliber you desire.

I prefer a Bulgy AK-74 as my own personal weapon, but have always admired the ability of the AR system to be so versatile.

The only thing limiting your imagination is the size of your wallet :lol: !

or the size of your magwell, the 308 won't fit in a 5.56 magwell and the 5.56 mags are too small to be used in the 308. all those other calibers aren't interchangeable with a 308

Had a brainfart when I forgot about magwell dimensions. I guess it would work as a single-shot, but that would be a shitty tradeoff in the long run.

You could technically make a new mag that fits in the AR10 mag well but fed .223. I don't think it would be that popular, though. The cost of propriety mags would probably make it cheaper just to buy an AR15 and USGI mags rather than a .223 AR10 upper with special bolts and mags... not to mention lighter and handier.

Might not even work as a single-shot, depending on whether or not you need a dedicated hammer.

I just sold off my Ohio Rapid Fire FAL carbine. The 20LB trigger just wasn't doing it for me. Next 308 will be a Saiga followed by a M1A. I ammo is worth more than the gun and the accuracy I was getting out of the FAL was just not good enough for what 308 goes for today.

I assume that was directed at me.
Im on a waiting list to get a M76 stock set.
Unknown as to delivery dates... *shrugs*
Im wanting to go with teak for all of it,
so that might delay things a bit too.

Should be cool as hell when its done though.

I like M1A, This is a Springfield Armory, Nat match, with wide stock- bedded, heavy barrel, NM sights- and tuned trigger- also leupold vari X 3 scope in 3.5-10x50 with 30mm tube on a SA gen 3 mount (see through) With handloads I produce 1/2" groups at 200yds. and can easily stay within 4 MOA at 200yds shooting off hand in a sitting position, using the sling. A very good rifle and an excellent investment. Don't mind the mess I just moved in :D

The stock is being custom made to fit and will attach like any other Saiga stock.
Its not a M76 take off but will match the lines.
Ill be ordering from BattleRifleG3.
His catalog can be found on the Dinzag website.
