    Joker,

    100m also, we use the Alb. Police range. The location is owned by the Rec. Dept. and one of the stipulations the US Gov. required of the Rec. Dept (when it was deeded to Alb.) was that it would be available to all private citizens. This is the old Turner Air Force Base range.
    Pershing SIR!!

    Don't own a shorty just a NM model that I've had for about 6 years. Great rifle.

    Sorry, but I'm also on the market for an m14 platform I've found a decent deal on a Scom II, but can you take off that cluster rail? It adds on an additional 2 pounds to a 10 pound rifle...

    Yes, and the bottom one just pops right off if you are not using it for anything.


    BTW-Here's a pic.

    Springfield Armory M1A Scout Squad, mahoghany stock, OD canvas sling, iron sights. A beauty.

    I own a SA National Match and just took delivery of a SOCOM II...both shoot terrificly! I am planning on mounting a Leatherwood "Camputer" scope on the Nat. Match, and a Trijicon Reflex on the SOCOM II, but want to get more shooting in with the iron sights...jus' to keep the ol' eyes in practice!
    I'm pretty new at this whole shooting thing, and these threads are a great source of knowledge and experience. Thank you all...Safe and Happy shooting!!

    I’ve always wanted a M1A, but never got around to it. It would be a good companion to my Remington 700 in .308.

    As stated it can be removed.....
    If weight is an issue, please consider an AR-15 in M4 config.....

    It's not that big of an issue, 10lbs for a SOCOM 16 is fine, I really don't anticipate needing quad rails, so 2lbs of unused rails is a waste for me. Like I said, I'm looking for a 16 but found a better price on a II.

    I think the 10lbs of a M14 will suit me fine, just so long as it's 10lbs I will use. The only thing I'd be likely to add on it is a bi-pod, but it's not a nessecity.

    I allready have a Bushy M4, bought it right after I came back from the Gulf, just looking to widen my collection and I really like the SOCOMs.

    But thank you for the advice and sorry I missed the part about being able to remove the rail assembly.

    Well the M-14 kicks, it is not your wimp gun and was meant to reach out and touch someone. Full auto M-14s were tried before the Stoner Rifle was introduced to fill the need of a light infantry, magazine fed rifle that could sustain a high rate of fire. The Squirrel gun got the nod because it didn't kick as much.
    3 inchs at 300 meters?? Have you let others shoot the rifle to compare results??
    The M-14 rifles are the eptiome of a SHTF rifle!!
