  • M1A stock

    Wondering if anyone has seen these or heard anything good about these. Looks like the cats A** when it comes to tactical M1A hardware, but for the price ill stick with the factory stock. Would be nice to test though.

    Seeing how this was for an M1A thought it best to post it here.

    Mods:
    Feel free to move this, if you feel it fits another area on Paradise better than here.

    The Sage EBR is a nice setup, with a price to match. Everyone I have talked to that has one said they got an accuracy increase by dropping their rifle into this chassis.

    They're being used quite a bit over in Iraq.

      Are they being used on full length rifles, or the socom models?

      An accuracy increase Any speculation as to why?

        I've seen 'em on full-length rifles, as well as 18" Scout rifles. Smith Enterprise is building full-size rifles as well Scout length rifles for the US Army. I have yet to see a SOCOM pic from Iraq.

        The Sage is similar to dropping your Rem700 into an AICS. It has a milled aluminum chassis, as well as a "barrel tensioner" that keeps constant, repeatable pressure on the barrel.

          I have used one of these before (traded out a magazine with a guy to shoot my FAL at camp allen) and had one problem with it. the iron sights were pretty much useless to me, they felt too low in the new stock to get a good cheek rest making it uncomfortable to shoot. problably works well with optics but for a good black rifle i think the iron sights are the most important.

          by the way his was a socom 16 and he seemed to feel pretty comfortable with the setup so its problably just me

            Depending on his facial structure vs yours, he may have had the adjustable cheek piece set up where it didn't work for you.

            I have high cheekbones and tend to use more cheekrest build up than a lot of folks are comfortable with.

              i tried that, i adjusted it as low as i could, didnt work out for me, but i think it is just like you said... comfortable for some, not for others... i just seem to be one of the latter this time

              the quality seemed to be pretty good and i really like the pistol grip for a battle rifle(personal preference i guess easier to shoot standing IMHO) if it fits your shooting style it seems like a good product for you M14 fans out there... until something better comes around for the M14 w/pistol grip ill stick to my FAL, hasn't steered me wrong so far

                My oldest daughter's boyfriend is in Afghanistan now and is using this Chassis with his M-14. He loves it and says he is very comfortable with it. Just took him some time to get used the extra weight of rifle and ammo over his M4

                  Any ideas on what the weight increase tends to be? It's an interesting idea, but I'm kinda digging my standard old wood stock too.

                    I like to keep things light weight. How many pounds does this chassis add to the rifle? My M1A weighs 9.5 lbs with either the wood stock or fiberglass GI stock.

                      Overall weight of a Mk 14 Mod 0 Rifle is 11.24 lbs empty. I personally don't mind the extra weight. Been wanting one of the Sage M39 chassis for quite a while now. The dang things are hard to find.

                        I am old school and a bit of a cheapskate. I purchased a used GI stock and new handguard from Fulton Armory for $71 and applied $12 worth of Krylon. It is lighweight and functional. It weighs 9.5 lbs with an empty magazine and sling. I can use the money I saved for beer and ammunition.

                            Nice! You can do a lot with the USGI fiberglass stock. Here's one that I cut up and mod'ed into a folding setup for my SAI SOCOM-16.
