Those stands are a fine piece of work. The addition of the infantry collar buttons really sets them off.

My first M14 type, an M1A scout squad that I had Springfield's custom shop perform as much national match tuning they could.
I did have a cheek riser for the Aimpoint, but it's not pictured. Great shooting rifle.

Very nice; I'm going to be ordering one exactly like it in a few days.

Thanks.

If I was going to do it again, I would replace the hand guard & scout mount with a scout hand guard.
The SHG keeps the optic low, low enough to co witness your irons through a low sitting Aimpoint.

Thanks for the heads-up; I'm headed to the dealer today and placing the order. Here's a question for you (and everyone else):

I prefer wood stocks on rifles, but want to experiment with the fiberglass/plastic as well. Should I order the rifle with a cheaper/plastic stock and pick up a USGI wood set or order with new walnut and pick up a used USGI fiberglass stock?

I can figure out the price differences on my own, but should I shy away from one stock type or another? Such as, will a used USGI stock work/fit better than a new one that's factory-produced at SAI? Or, same story with USGI vs. SAI on the fiberglass/plastic?

Thanks,
WRM

I would order it with wood, then shop for a tight fitting vintage USGI fiberglass stock.
