I've been without my rifle for a couple weeks, and finally picked it up from the gunsmith. I had the Sage EBR stock installed on it. I'm gonna have to take it back to him in a couple weeks, so he can take it all back apart again and install a Sadlak scope mount. Then I'll be puttin' a Leupold Mark 4 4.5-14x50 and US Optics scope rings on it. The gunsmith said since he forgot to install the scope mount, he'll go 'head and sight in the scope for me too. I put a Tango Down bipod on the rifle. It wouldn't lock the legs back with it installed the correct direction, so I had to install it backwards. The handguards are a little too wide on the stock for the legs. Now it works perfect, and I actually like it better since it frees up more room on the handguards when the bipod is collapsed. The Sage feels a lot more solid than the original synthetic stock did. It's a good bit heavier, but it feels like it could handle anything. I can't wait to put some rounds through it. The gunsmith did put 10 rounds through it at 50 yards, and said he had to measure the grouping 'cause he was puttin' all the rounds through the same hole. He said the stock didn't reduce recoil, but it did reduce muzzle flip so follow up shots are much quicker and easier. Instead of the recoil goin' up and back, it just goes back. He also said that you can feel every movement inside the rifle, which I think is kinda cool, since the stock is all aluminum and bolted together. It's good to finally have my rifle back home, but I know I'll be without it again soon. It's all worth the wait, though.

Nice setup flea, makes me envious. Let us know if it improves your grouping compared to the original setup. How heavy is it?

Thanks.

I haven't weighed it, but it definitely added weight. It's noticeable.

I plan to take it to the range this week, but I won't have the scope mounted yet. So I'll just be shootin' with iron sights. I don't have the best vision in the world, so I don't really expect to shoot tight groups with the irons. I'll really be able to put it to the test once I get the scope on it.

Man, I'm so happy with this rifle. This thing is one bad motherf***er! Put some rounds through it today to get the iron sights zeroed. I did a 25 yard zero, since they'll be backup sights once I get the scope mounted, and this will allow me to hold dead center and reach out about 325 yards. It reaches zero again at 245 yards, and maximum height is 3" at 160 yards. When I was dialin' the sights in, I was able to put the rounds in the same hole. I've never been able to do that before. After I got it dialed in, I set the target up at 100 yards. I couldn't see worth a damn at that range. The targets were small, the sun was shinin' right on the targets which are mostly white with some red, and my eyes aren't even good enough to really see that distance clearly even with contacts. So I knew I wasn't gonna be that accurate, but I wanted to try anyway. My grouping was just a smidge over an inch! That surprised the hell outta me. Once I get the scope on the rifle and can actually see at a distance, I'll get a much better idea of what this rifle can do. Right now, I'm as happy as I can be with it. I'm tryin' to make up my mind if I want to zero the scope at 100 yards or 200 yards. The longest outdoor range here is 200 yards.

That's probably what I'll do also.

flea, what grip is that on your rifle?
Not sure who makes it. It came with the Sage EBR stock.

it's a Euro Grip! there nice and comfortable!!

Well I was on the fence on my Socom II build and I would of went with the sage mod 0 if my barrel was 18" 0r 22" , But with the 16" I thought the Troy MCS would work a little better!! What the Finale Weight?
This Pig is ROCK SOILD 12.2 with empty Mag and M3 aimpoint.

I've been on the fence about getting a new chassis for my M1A or holding out for an RFB-308 (They're mighty scarce around these parts) and y'all are pushing me toward the chassis. Good looking rifles, the both of them.

That is perfection.

I have an old M1A Supermatch heavy barrel. It is glass bedded and the barrel is almost as thick as the receivcer tell it gets out of the wood. It is extremely accurate. I chose to not scope it. Just in case I do some match shooting but at my age that's hardly possible. I have had trouble with trying to find a solid mount for a scope. Just doesn't seem to happen for me - no matter what mount I try. So I'll stay with the irons
