Now that I have an EOTech on my rifle, The only big thing left to maybe do to it is swap out the walnut stock with an aftermarket replacement.
Cheaper than dirt has a pro mag archangel m1A stock.
saw this at last year's NRA convention.
I have several requirement for an aftermarket stock:
Most of them are heavy, and I don't want that. This one weighs 4.2 pounds. Goodish
All of them are pretty much impervious to moisture compared to wood, so check, there.
I want the stock to have better options for mounting something underneath. A foregrip and light combo, or a grip-pod. This comes with a rail underneath, and I have a rail already on top. And I know I can ring a 9 inch gong from 250 yards out if I have a rest or 'bipod.' So also good.
A better way to mount a sling other than WWI era standard swivels. This has multiple swivel mount points. That's fine.
Looks like I'll need to some fettling with it to mate it with the lock and barrel. I can do that.
My only worries? It is half the price of other stocks and I worry about quality that that might reflect. Reviews of it usually reflect how hard it is to fit it, but that's it.
They even have a quasi tutorial on fitting.
Does anyone want to talk me down off this ledge and to hold out for something like a Sage?
