I have a lot of time and history with the M1A/M14.
Been down the McMillian stocks which are super expensive (Like $900 ish I think
I've played with the bubbas cheek pieces thing-ah-ma-bobs
And I've learned that you give the old guy the M1A and set him up on the ridge, while you and the whipper-snappers charge the saloon.
The rifle already has the factory NM barrel so that's staying, and is accurate beyond my present shooting abilities.
For runnin'-N-gunnin' I have that trimmer Sig.

You have time and history with them sure, I'm talking about finding a gunsmith who has time and history working on them. Your rifle as it sits is a capable and effective medium range rifle, especially in the terrain that is around your farm.

Well, Bobby, been nice knowing ya!

OK, seriously, why not? What's wrong with it?

The M1A stock is meant to shoot iron sights. I need to add this ugly leather (Retains moisture) cheek riser just to get a decent cheek weld to shoot the gun scoped. This Arch-angel has adjustable check piece and length of pull.

I like the GI stock for nostalgia, but I am not displaying the thing but redeveloping it for a medium range gun.

If you want to do anything with the M1A other than keep it OG, I'd recommend getting a fiberglass stock that matches the original lines... like



Then getting the the action glass bedded by a reputable good gunsmith, preferably someone who has knowledge of the M1A, or even better M14 series rifles. If you want to be even specialer than upgrade the barrel to a Kreiger or Criterion barrel, and upgrade the gas system. Basically turn the match M1A into an M21, albeit it with modern components.

The M14/M1A is going to be a 1.5 MOA(ish)shooter no matter what you really do to it. I'd recommend keep it as it is and do SOME upgrades to it, but in its original form it is more than capable of being a medium range weapon. The scope mounting is where the design sucks, but companies have developed some better mounts that fix that issue. I haven't messed with one since I was a SDM back in the day, and before the Scout PL took it away, but the one I had assigned to me was a wood stock and it was bedded, don't remember the scope that was on it but I only had it for a couple weeks at most.

With nothing to do a few mornings ago and a wallet full-o-cash, I decided to upgrade the weapon. Arch-angle furniture, always needed a bipod, new picatinny scope mount, and a new 30mm scope.

You put that stock on there and I don't think we can be friends anymore. I can support the other additions however not the stock.

I have a cart on primary at the moment,    Can’t decide on a stock for the 308 yet. 

What're you wanting to use it for? That barrel length I'd personally just stick an A1 or A2 stock since they are cheap, however you could drop some money and get a MagPul PRS. Although, I have seen people stick a collapsible stock on it.

My opinion. Buy the donor (eventual) truck, take the Burb as is on the trail ride. Save up some money and time.. pull the 6.0 and sell it or transplant it in the kids truck. That'll give you space and more money to work on the diesel to swap into the Burb. You have the Duramax for most of your common usage. Get the Burb running properly and be one with it. Sitting around vacillating is only going to end up costing you more time and money.

So since I'm not currently going to re-read previous postings for this, have you looked into a Quonset hut building? I see the commercials for them pretty frequently and there are many farmers that have them up here for storage of feed, tractors, parts or whatever you want. I've seen them with PAX doors, double garage doors to open front/back.

It might be close to the same price as a canvas skin stretched over metal frame buildings.

Dang it Bobby, take care of yourself.

There's not to many times of the year that one can appreciate the desert but this is one of them. 68 for the high. Turning green from the recent rains, and a boom year for quail.

I was trying to clear the driveway so it wouldn't keep piling up since it was a snowstorm, and I had just gotten home from work. I'm sort of stubborn.

Dave (I forget which # you are) just go with a regular basic gas block and buffer spring/weight. Once you get it all assembled and fire it you'll know if you need/want to start adjusting it to fit your own personal situation. If you have to start changing things, change them one at a time. I'd recommend doing it with the same ammo to test it everytime.

Depending on which pattern it is, parts might be easier or harder to find. I found in helping others, that DPMS pattern was more abundant, but that's just what I experienced.

I looked  at that picture and I knew exactly what was going on. No reason why that optic needed to be mounted that way to fit in cages. I was just making the observation I wasn’t a fan if this is the sop for the 29th Id is all.

That post wasn’t me calling you or anyone on this page out, it was a blanket statement based on personal observations . I have watched, read, heard and participated in discussions with people falling all across the political spectrum and have found that a large chunk of them will comment or respond with a knee jerk reaction to one frame of a video or a photo that had been edited or purposefully taken in such a way in order to elicit a conditioned response be it good or bad.

 Which is why when political or religious posts are made on here or elsewhere I happen to browse I withhold commenting until I feel as if I have something constructive to add to the thread, and if I feel as if I won’t contribute to the thread, I sit back and read, and on occasion learn something or just pass the time.

Leave it to Bobby to be all calm and rational.

I've had to do an uncountable amount of SI checks while in the Army, both as a lower enlisted and eventually as a Team Leader, then Squad Leader/Section Sergeant. The problem with photos that have been posted lately is that people tend to immediately jump in and comment without looking and thinking.

Firearms / Re: 29id S.O.P.
« on: January 17, 2021, 10:09:41 AM »
But then I thought about the fact their zero would be off when reinstalling

If you reinstall the optic in the same T-mark (which SHOULD have a witness mark) on the rail and turn the mount's torque knob to where it clicks 3x then it shouldn't have lost it's zero...theoretically . I have seen them lose the zero very slightly on some sights, but they were older and had been in service for awhile.

It’s a cco (red dot sight) the team leader needs some extra pt for letting this happen

Except there's nothing wrong at this point. Now had this photo been showing the SM standing a post or anything other than checking serial numbers I'd agree with you.

Sure looks like the aim point compm4

Guessing like others a more compact storage and transport. Not sure why the dust cover is open though.

It is a M4 or M4s. The dust cover is open probably because they ensured the rifle is clear; at least they better have, before handing it out to the SM and the SM didn't shut it after closing the bolt.

Firearms / Re: 29id S.O.P.
« on: January 16, 2021, 09:57:19 PM »
That would be (probably, hopefully)
1. The result of how some units store their weapons in their arms room cages. It's easier to store them that way, which is stupid.
2. The SM reading the serial number off to an NCO off frame since they probably unpacked them from movement.
3. 100% hands on after a movement of any distance with lower enlisted is pretty much mandatory.
4. If you didn't check your Unit's SI you fail at being a leader.

Bobby you should come out and shot a match some time.  I am hosting a couple matches this year that I won't be able to shoot in; would be more then happy to lend you my rifle, ammo, gear etc...  Also, if you sign up and shoot a WPRSC match they have a very nice loaner rifle, they let you shoot if it's your first match.  It's a lot of fun with an awesome group of guys.  All these matches are open to the public and you can come spectate if you want. 
I should have a new scope for my rifle by the end of the month hopefully. When it comes in I will be moving the current scope on top if my 22LR trainer permanently. Then I will be setup to shoot in the backyard any time I want to.  You're welcome to come out and plink with me anytime there too, atleast until the crops get planted and start coming up.

I appreciate the offer, I'll have to send you a PM. With my crazy work schedule I'll have to see how it all turns out. I never really liked competition shooting, but the last couple years I've been thinking about giving it a try. I don't wanna use up your ammo, especially since it's sorta slim pickings out there.

The challenge has been laid out

Sometimes you gotta accept.

More of an invitation then a challenge.

I'm in WI and live within about a 2 hour drive of a lot of the big barrel manufacturers.  The organization I shoot with the most named their 2 day national match the "Barrel Maker Classic" and 7 local barrel manufacturers are some of the main sponsors for the match. Bartlien, Krieger, Criterion, Mulleroworks, Rock Creek and Brux. A lot of guys shoot Bartlien barrels.  Krieger is also very popular.  I generally go with Rock Creek but that is mostly because I have a bit more of a personal relationship with a guy from their then I do a couple of the other manufacturers.  All of them are good.  It is possible to get a bad barrel from any of them on occasion.  A lot of what makes a barrel accurate is how the gunsmith chambers it.  A good gunsmith will tell you they can identify a bad barrel when it is chambered.


Wait, wait, wait... hold up. Why haven't I heard of this?

Well it was yesterday, well yesterday evening and my girlfriend kicked me out of the house so she could have a couple of her friends over to do cookies and have ladies only time for a couple hours. So I went to the local indoor range and rented a G19 and 100rds.. I'm saddened to say my skills have slacked up. However, it still was nice to put some wireless earphones in, throw the ear pro overtop, slip on the gloves, eye pro and just focus on the front sight for 30 minutes.

Then I wandered to Home Depot and picked up some bathroom caulk so I can fix the badly done caulk job the people who flipped the house did on the bathroom shower before my GF got her house.

Ohh I almost forgot.. I drank 3 cups of coffee today.

What did he enlist under MOS-wise? Did he have Airborne or the Option 40 in there?
Bobby, at the moment he is an 11X
He wanted Airborne and Ranger but not the way it works any more
So he goes to OSUT at Benning and gets done in what, 4 months? If his PT scores are good (Currently he can max it out) he will be offered Airborne school. He plans to accept that and seek it
The Ranger recruiters are now visiting all basic/infantry school classes. If his PT scores are high enough, his sergeants recommend and he asks, then he automatically gets to go to what I called RIP. Obviously if he gets through RIP, then its on to Ranger school.
Interestingly enough, a kid on his wrestling team who graduated last year has made it into Ranger school. They want him to become a designated marksman. Literally a kid who we spent every weekend with. I'll bet Nate follows him into Ranger Battalion if he can make it
Still a pre-Ranger, but starting to make the dream real.

Well tell him good luck.

And yesterday i had to spend 9 hours telling a range safety officer to never touch me again, to get out of my bubble, and to never tell me how to properly (according to them) hold my weapon as part of the conceald handgun permit course. 

The main instructor/owner is a pretty cool guy and knows how to break it down for all different types of folks.  We even had an 75-80year old couple getting it done.

A friend is president of a range in the area. They were having a reflexive fire class and I said I'm in. The guy in charge was holding everyone back by their shirts during the walk and shoot but said " I'm not going to bother, you know what you're doing." Sometimes it nice to just have a leave me alone face.
