View Full Version : M1A Scout/SOCOM II

January 6, 2011, 10:47 PM
ive read a hundred threads about this issue, and i still have questions. heres my uses: Hunting, short range heavy firepower (if there was a mass riot or zombie apoc (work with me here) i dont think id have the need to pick people off at 300m) i plan to spend alot of time with it exploding watermelons and at a range, so theres the fun factor... i thought a trijicon dual illum would go nice on the socom cause they have the low mount, so thats nice. im leaning towards scout in walnut for class and pleasure of being "one" with the stock... but then agian as a fun-gunner i think a socomII with a dot would be more my thing... any suggestions?

The cluster of rails on the SOCOM II adds alot of weight on a gun that is fairly heavy to begin with.

Scout. The thought of shooting a SOCOM with out ear pro is painful to me. I had a .308 with a muzzle brake and it was uncomfortable to shoot unless you had plugs and muffs. On the other hand, my .308 scout (17 inch barrel) is not painful when shot at game animals.

But no rail please. I hear they are LOUD, as I guess any 16" .308 would be.
But there is nothing else really out there like them. I had the first one in our area in my hands and passed. $1400 bucks.

Maybe some day
