Sweet setup. Mine's not as pretty as yours... no optics or paint job. Pulls duty as my truck gun.
What kind of scope/mount is that?
What kind of groupings do you get at distance? Mine are pretty wide, even at 100m. I've heard folks attribute that to the wide/openess of the iron sights and/or the shortness of the barrel (apparently they don't think 16" is enough to get the optimal performance out the the .308). Curious if you've experienced similar or not.

I'm not pro gun, I'm pro rights. What are you?
I also have a 16 but don't have glass on it,yet.Bellyscraper has a nice setup. The front sight is so big that any bullseye target at 200m is almost totally covered. Man shaped targets not as bad. I can get 2 1/2" groups at 100m easy,using the irons and good ammo. Muzzle break is SWEET,bucks less than a 12 shotty, but it is real load. Especially for the guy next to you. Hopefully Bellycraper with chime in on what kind of groups he gets.
bzzz, mag foul
Keep the gun oiled and the temple clean
Thanks for posting the pic...great looking rifle.
So lets start a SOCOM 16 in dress thread... mine is fairly simple...

What if the Hokey Pokey IS what it's all about?
We should have a competition for oldest thread resurrected. I bet the mods would love it! :)

Hey, the SOCOM is pretty neat! Keep the thread going..
