Description:

Springfield Armory SOCOM rifles are compact, powerful, close-quarter battle rifles. But being chambered for 7.62mm NATO. They still pack plenty of punch to reach out and make that crucial shot at a distance. They feature 16-inch barrels (the shortest allowed for a civilian-owned rifle) made possible by a re-tuned gas system. A proprietary, high-efficiency muzzle brake virtually eliminates muzzle rise, enabling you to stay on target for faster, more accurate follow-up shots. The new Cluster Rail System of the SOCOM II further enhances its versatility by accommodating virtually any optic, light or other accessory designed to fit a standard picatinny rail. Caliber:- 7.62mm NATO (.308 Win.) Barrel:-16.25", Twist: 1 turn in 11 inches, right hand, six-groove Weight:-10.9 lbs. (without scope) Length:- 37.25" long Mechanism:- Rotating bolt, gas operated, air cooled, semi-automatic magazine fed rifle Sights Front:- Tritium post Sights Rear:- Enlarged military aperture with MOA click adjustments of both windage and elevation Capacity:- 10 round box magazine* Trigger Pull:- 5 to 6 lbs., two-stage military trigger

    I got one in the safe guys, come to Alaska & we'll go break it in properly! Mine is camo rather than the black stock but it is sweet! Doesn't group as well as my Super Match but isn't meant to either. For what it was designed to do it is sweet!

    extremely accurate, althought the appearance has been mod the functionality and accuracy of this rifle has never change, infact it has improve, the rail is little bulky but you get use to it and it certainly is a great organizer for all your everyday accessories

    I would love to be able to pull this baby out the trunk. It would help in any firefight, as good .308 rounds can punch through a car door, winshield, or felon with ease. Just wish it had a pistol grip for that little bit extra control.

    It's a well functioning, accurate, and reliable tool. The versitility is the main selling point, My only gripe is the overabundance oc p-rails. I like the M1A-scout package a little more as a precision firearm, but on duty I'd rather have this than the AR15 next to the 870.

    I bought one of these a few months back. Its a great gun, gives you plenty of options for close-quarters or long range. My only draw backs is its bulky, and not my number one for house clearing. If you have the cash buy the Springfield SOCOM Cluster Rails, And Barrel Assembly Only. The Build one from the ground up, there are great complete stocks out there with collapsible buttstocks on them. I love modifying my gear into military or more tactical, if you guys have questions on AR's or this feel free to ask.

    This is the epitomy in the evolution of the long Springfield line going back to the M1A1. It is very durable, effective, and highly accurate. I cannot fathom any better weapon for use in a tactical situation to defend myself with. This is a rock solid rifle that demonstrates all the reliability and quality of the Springfield line.

    Great weapon even with the high demand of it driving its cost to a point where it surpassed my Remington 700 XCR TLR. Still great nonetheless. Just wish I could talk a 2 star into signing off on letting me take it on my deployments. A little heavier than, optimal for long term cqt but, if your willing to deal with a little more weight over an M4 you'll appreciate the stopping power, versatility and, durability known to all the M1A/M14 Rifles.

    I have handled the SOCOM II and I opted for the earlier SOCOM 16. If the quad rails are not necessary for your application, they interfere with a conventional grip on the forend.

    I've owned my SOCOM II for several years now. Right now I have an Aimpoint 9000SC 2X 2MOA sight mounted. Benched, shooting some Argentine NATO surplus military 7.62 at 100 yards, I was able to keep inside the dot. (2 MOA= 2" @ 100 yds., right?) Not too shabby, I figure.
    Got a TangoDown bipod on the bottom rail, which can be easily removed to lighten the load (by 1 1/2 lb.), which is 14.0 lbs. fully loaded with Aimpoint, bipod, sling, 20 rd. full magazine, and cleaning kit (inside the stock). To the AR-whimpies, this is what a real rifle weighs. And it's capable of serious long-range damage. I like it alot.

    This is a great all around rifle. I was fortunate enough to get a good deal on one & my department allows me to carry it as a patrol rifle. I have a Sage EBR stock on it and an aimpoint sight. The rifle is incredibly accurate and powerful. Recoil is minimal and very controllable. Magazine made by CMI are easy to find, inexpensive and perfectly reliable. My only complaint is this is the hardest rifle to field strip I have ever experienced. Thankfully due to the operating system this rifle does not need to be stripped for cleaning as much as the M4.
