Bush rifle has an 18" barrel and no mount for optics. Just a regular M1A with a shorter barrel.
I like mine

Isn't the scout a 16" barrel and have a rail for mounting optics, forward of the receiver........

Scout Squad/Bush are the same rifle with the Scout having the forward (scout) scope mount. SOCOM puts you into 16" territory, witht the SOCOM II being railed. Doesn't really matter, you'll end up trying to buy two in each flavor.

what he said

Personally, I like the Scout's rail for an optional red dot if you aren't going to put any magnified optics on it, but mine will probably be coming off since I put an ARMS 18 on it when I decided to try for a long range stick

Don't they have a different muzzle device?

I know the socom uses a diff gas system, i am talking about the scout and bush rifles

IIRC the only difference, in regards to the muzzle device, between the standard and the bush/scout is the required lack of a bayonet lug. Can't remove the gas plug with the lug in place.
I could be wrong.

The M1A Scout Squad has a muzzle brake and a barrel rail mount. The M1A Bush (no longer in production) had a flash suppressor and a few also had the bayonet lug. The M1A Bush model did not have a barrel rail mount but there were both fixed and folding stocks for it.

An advanced collector and I have most of the SA, Inc. catalogs and price lists from 1973 to the present day. I've put together several data spreadsheets of SA, Inc. products. From the spreadsheet on factory catalog numbers for M1A rifles, here's the different Scout Squad and Bush models that have been sold at one time or another. M1A-A1, Bush, and Scout Squad all indicate an 18 " barreled M1A.
