How do you have your Standard M1A set up? I recently bought a Standard and I'm thinking about adding some accessories. Any good recommendations? Please submit pictures if you have them.

Thanks in advance.

Of all the M14s I own, this one is closest to a Standard.

22" standard profile Crazy Horse barrel with SEI's DC Vortex and hooded GLFS.
USGI synthetic stock with the rigid rail modification. Iron sights and a sound suppressor with breech shield.

Mine is stock as it came from SA except, I installed the XS sights -

The aperture diameter is twice the diameter of the stock model giving ghost ring advantage plus, the white stripe is tritium. I bought mine used and the original sights tended to shoot loose - now fixed with the XS sights that hold their adjustments just fine.

:D

Does anyone recommend the Harris Bipod for an M1A Standard? I see the one on the SA store website and like it. Has anyone ordered it? It says it doesn't come with the QD stud though. Where can I get one?
