My only issue with the M1 is lack of picatinny rail support. The option to mount a thermal, red dot and 3x plus accessories is not there. Granted its a true battle rifle, this microscopic afterthought of rail and scope mount does not do it for me.
Good looking weapon sir!!Here is my Scout. Mounted the M1A rail with a Primary Arms SLx 4-14x44mm FFP Rifle Scope - Illuminated ACSS-HUD-DMR-308/223. It has low profile QD rings. It has a CVLIFE Carbon Fiber Bipod attached to a bipod adapter. It also has the Wsobue Rifle Buttstock Tactical Cheek Rest Pad.
At my age, I do not think that I could use a scout scope, but I may try it someday. View attachment 10077
Going for distance or close/mid range ?Fabulous...
So my particular dilemma is that I was dead set on purchasing a new SOCOM 16 but then I've now seen some superb Scout Squad rifles.
I already have a great "truck gun" in my Saint Victor .308 pistol with it's 10" barrel, so do I stick with the planned 16" SOCOM or do I refocus on the 18" Scout?
I plead my battle rifle case to you, my esteemed "S.A. Enablers"... THX
Did the standard flash hider help tame recoil?The Scout retains the original gas system length, thus it's just a shortened standard.
That makes it a bit more handy, more reliable and maneuverable.
I don't have a SOCOM, and never will since my Scout is just as handy and I don't have to lose velocity which is needed for my AOPS, & have deal with the extra muzzle blast. I replaced the factory MB with the standard flash hider in mine.
