Say, a M1a Loaded Standard...? Is it worth the expense?

How heavy are these stocks? I plan to do some research for the hey of it tonight, I'm not in the position to buy right now but am curious what I could expect improvement-wise.

I'm torn between going for a full-on accurate bolt gun rig or trying to max out the accuracy of a pretty decently accurate M1a...

Put a standard, rack grade M14 type rifle in a SAGE and
on average your group size will be reduced by 50%.

I have no idea what the JAE will do accuracy wise for the
same rack grade M14 type rifle.

macman check Fulton Armory website they have the Sage system on some of their rifles and they are sweet.  The accuracy will improve hard to say how much.  Is your gas system unitized this definitly helps also Badger Ordance makes a great operating spring guide.

i put a SAGE EBR stock on my socom a few months back and so far have only shot it with iron sites at 100 yards so i cant give much help on the accuracy BUT i will be finding out on sunday what its capable of since i just got my scope this week.

i know the socom is not the best choice for accuracy but i just wanted to get started and see if i like shooting the m1a scoped, if it fits me then i'll go for a little better barrel in a loaded model and return this to its original state.

i will say this for the SAGE stock, its a heavy beast when shooting off hand but its very well consrtucted too.

Socom II weight at 11 lbs in stock configuration, so how much does it weight with the sage stock?

i like your choice of stock and grip. if i was not using a scope your confirguration would be my choice. i am not so fond of the adjustable check piece on mine IF i was to use iron sights only.

Tim @ Security Arms is working on a conversion kit that will allow those of us that own the
SAGE with the adjustable cheek rest to change over to the AR style butt stock and pistol grip.

Look for updates over on M14HDW.US
