    1st review

    I bought this rifle 4 years ago and have had nothing but fun with it. Shoots great never jams up. I carried a m-16A2 in both combat zones and found this to be the rifle the one I wish I could take if if i ever had to go back, Also killed 6 deers with it including one at 200 yarsd with iron sights. The only bad thing is the price but to me its been worth every penny.

    extremely accurate, can get a bit heavy after awhile, easy to clean, convient open port for easy to inspect for brass, great caliber probilly the best not too big and not too small,

    Well it took me 4 years and getting hit by a truck to save the money to buy the rifle but it was well worth it. I actually count it towards my top 10 battle rifle collection. The only thing is I would like to change the stock but a good replacement tactical stock will cost at least 400 to 500. If you can see it you can hit it with the rifle.

    I love shooting this! It's accurate, powerful and extremely fun to shoot. I get giddy just thinking about shooting it :)

    This rifle is a fine piece of craftsmanship and extremely accurate. I fell in love with this rifle the first time I shot it, and I always carried it in my squad while I work in patrol.
    I bought mine just before President Clinton signed the ban in the mid 90’s. It was hard to find 20 round magazines after that, but I was given some by a veteran officer who turned out to be a real good friend.

    I bought two of these rifles when I sold my house sold one another guy on the Dept kept the other. This rifle is all that and a bag of chips. I would love too see the Military finally wake up and start issuing these rifles to the troops over the Mouse Guns just my two cents.

    I own this rifle in the SOCOM II variant. Synthetic stock, muzzle brake, and a tritium lamp in the front post. It also comes with the tactical rails all the way around. It's somewhat lighter than tho Scout rifle, in wood furniture, but the muzzle brake helps compensate. One thing that doesn't change though, is this, if you can see it, you can put a hole in it. Mine really like the 168 grain Sierra HPBT at 2650 fps. I reload my own and have found that the rifle kinda likes it's rounds loaded to 7.62X51mm NATO standards, just a hair better than standard .308. But it will feed and function with either. And honestly, I don't think you can make it jam.

    i have the M1a standard W/ walnut stock, very reliable and extremely accurate, a bit unwielding for tactical entry, that said i would much rather be behind it than in front of it
