I know is cranking out Blackfeather RSs (BFRS?) at a decent rate and $600 isn't bad but for the price, wait time, and hassle with the ATF I'd rather go with the McMillan MFS-14. I read through the installation instructions and it seems like there's some room for error to jack up my M1A with the BFRS. Correct me if I'm wrong, I've just never tried my hand at any kind of gunsmithing and it seems well out of my comfort zone.
I am going to remove the QCB-16 pictured above in the SAGE M14ALCS/CV and install it in the BFRS when it arrives... I'll post my findings here.


I'll consider the Sage if the price and availability are right and if it falls in the 9.2-9.5lb range bare naked (unloaded, no optics).
That weight requirement is achievable with a standard weight barrel, especially if you use a Magpul CTR butt stock or one that is as light or lighter. Clyde Armory would be the first place I would check for a SAGE M14ALCS/CV
