Very nice! I'm trying to decide between a Socom II and a full size M1a at the moment. It's a tough choice.

I would start with a "Scout" 18"
So now my next rifle is a Scout in a Sage EBR mod 0 chassis :mrgreen:

That's a beautiful rifle. If you don't mind me asking, how much was it total for the rifle and all the mods?
G&T distributors offers a socom 2 for around 1600 dollars after taxes. I was thinking about doing something
similar to your rifle in the future. Thanks.

Cool looking but I can't help but think an AR-10 would have been a better choice for the money spent.

well if you start with socom those go for around $1400-2000 there are deals out there. socom II are a little more.. But you can sell the Rail and Stock off it.. ($300-$450)
then you need a troy chassis they range from $550-650 just for the chassis nothing else. or you can get the complete system with BUIS, stock, grip
they range from $950-$1200 depending on the stock and sights..
then you add your favorite optic for ???
so with my crappy math skills for a complete rifle minus optics
on the low side around $2300 and $ 3000 :shock: then add you optic
as mine sits it's a lot!!! :-[ bye the way the best mags are Springfield mags and they run around $45-50 each......why I do not know

Nice rifle but definitely very expensive.

I can't help thinking a FAL or G3 would be more cost effective, and I like their mags better...

But, THAT IS A SEXY RIFLE! THANKS FOR THE PR0N!!!

not too fond of the socom II (socom 16 is in my ballpark) with its rail system, but you really turned it into a sex machine with that troy stock. However I can't imagine that whole setup is under 10lbs.

Good god, I think my Enfield only weighs 9lbs! I can't imagine what that would be like to carry if SHTF.

Buy a sling.

I think my rifle, fully loaded with all the crap I hang off of it weighs just a tad under 10 pounds. 12 lbs is heavy.
Thanks Anianna!

Agree that you've got a very cool set-up - but for me the shortest tube I'd opt for on the M1A platform is 18", and that would be using an SEI tube w/ SEI FH/MB.

Lots of stock choices, of course, and the one's you've got are nice.

I have an Old School M14 E2 with pistol grip from back in the '80s, so I'd probably just bed it into that and call it good.

I'm a noobie, so please go easy on me, but if you have a .308 rifle that is good to reach out and touch someone at great distances, why did you go with the non magnified optics? It would seem to me that the rifle would be better suited to a scope with a bit of magnification.

If its a placeholder scope, no worries, I'd do the same just to shoot the dang thing before I got the optics I wanted.

As long as he has good eye sight you don't need magnification really. A .308 has about 30 inches of bullet drop at 400M - you can shoot further but realistically you probably are not going to engage live targets further out than that.

That said, I have a 3-9 Trijicon Accupoint on my PTR-91 because I have crappy eyesight. Either this scope or an ACOG would be my personal preference in .308. Both have BAC aiming, I can acquire close targets (25yrd) very quickly at 3X, although at that distance and certainly closer using the irons is probably faster.

I prefer the AR 10 style for a .308 as well, but the M14/M1A platform is built like a tank and runs damn near flawless.

Really nice rifle *drools*

I've wanted a M1a for a long time, but I can't bring myself to drop that much $$ on one.

That's a nice set-up. I have a DPMS AR in 7.62x51 and I like it a lot.

They distribute for CMI, the only current DoD contractor for M-14 mags, the same mags that Springfield Armory sells, but since there isn't an SAI logo on them they're half the price.

Great outfit, great service......I have no affiliation with them, just a very happy customer.

Now, that there is a beautiful gun, I liked it most when you had the camo on it, I like it over the semi-standard urban camo they offer. I would LOVE to have a gun like that, Good job man.

Yeah scoring a hit on a man size target is actually not my objective. I want to hit a 10" target, and I can't reliably do that past 200M w/o optics.
