M1A Scout Squad — Worth the Hype?

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.

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.

The aftermarket address those points.

Plenty of room for accessories.

If I were given a big game rifle do-over, I'd buy an SA Tanker .308 Win and never need another big game rifle.
 
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.
