Finally took the plunge and got my own M1A Scout.

As you can see I went with the synthetic stock route over the stock walnut. I will refinish the walnut stock and make it pop out a bit more for display purposes; but as far as shooting is concern I will be using the synthetic as shown.

This will be my fun plinker. I am gearing up to do a full USGI Tanker (probably from LRB and assembled by my local smith) a few months from now. That project should include a plethora of toys. This one however is a bare bones basic rifle.

This weekend shoot is going to be interesting. My AR with an LMT MRP upper and Acog next to this puppy. Along side will be a dozen or so other rifle from a few friends; we're gonna have a FAL vs. M1A competition. Going to be fun

Whos stock, I am a newbie to these m1a's. I bought a used one a while back with a birch stock and I have been looking at Freds. What are the other options (not sage and McMillian either!)

So sweet!

I've recently got the itch for a synthetic stocked scoiut. Nobody local has one in stock though.

That thing looks like it will be fun to shoot. I want one because they look fun (think quick, close quarters drills) and they should be more than capable deer rifles.

Congratulations on the purchase!

edited to add: Oh yeah, it'll make one HELL of a nice home protection tool!

Verrrynice!

A Bush/Scout M1A in an OD USGI synthetic stock is the nuts IMHO.
