Anyone have one of these?

Synthetic or wood?

Thoughts?

TIA

A friend of mine has 1 and he loves it.It has a fiberglass stock in camo.

In fact,I just bought a preban std (cheap) that will be a bush folder when I'm done with it in a couple weeks.

I'll have a bush with scout mount and ARMS #18 for double duty.

I have a Scout Squad in a customized skin fitted GI stock...it rocks.

Got a "bush", like it better than the standard for my interest and use,

If you get one, get a walnut stock, then pick up a few G.I. syn at fun shows for ~$20 and repaint them. I have a woodland, desert, and tact-black stocks to switch out with. Bought,repainted and clear coated all three for ~$60.
Don't get the SA black syn, the paint job sucks.

Mine came with the black stock. The paint started to come off within 50 rds. It also seems to be more slippery than the wood stock, even with the cheap crinkle finish and the fake checkering.

Other than that, I really like the rifle.

Mrs. Different has a M1A Scout. It is her favorite rifle. We removed the scope mount and replaced the muzzle brake with an Entreprise Arms M14 shorty flash hider. We replaced the factory black crinkle stock with a desert camo painted USGI synthetic stock. Black colored rifle furniture gets too hot to hold out here in the desert.

The M14 Vortex is barely shorter than the standard M14 flash supressor, but if you're replacing the muzzle brake which comes on the Scout Squad rifle you may as well go with the latest technology.
