Well, boom is right! That's something more substantial than .223 and is most admirable.
It'd be fun to spend an afternoon with a SOCOM. I have a standard M1A. I'll bet the SOCOM is a "different breed of cat" to shoot. It's got it were it counts down range for sure though.

That is one good looking rifle!
I have a touch of the M14 bug myself. Been looking at a few locally and I may have to add one to the collection one of these days.

That is a fine looking "boom stick"! I am lusting after a .308 as well. have heard great things, readily available, and quite effective. Lots of great rifles made in that caliber for obvious reasons. Enjoy it! Thx for the pics!

Very nice gun!
I want one, but am going with a cmp garand. Figure I can get away for a few bucks less.
When is this thing going to the range?

Thats awesome!!!! I have both a full size M1A and a Scout. This is the only SOCOM I like I can't stand the SOCOM II they are way to heavy.

I am a pistol guy, but that is on the short list of long guns I really want. Congrats on the test and the new weapon!
