I was planning on picking up an LRB M25, but decided to build/have built the Norinco M14 into what she is now, and pick up a Socom instead. (My wife loves it.)
As it turns out, I prefer the ARMS 18 mount over the "built in" LRB mount. It sets a tad lower, and makes the cheek weld build up less. I also prefer to roll with USGI synthetic stocks. I fill in the selector switch hole, (One less place for gunk to reach the trigger group), and strengthen the forestock area. My cheek weld build up is butt ugly, (A piece of hard foam and 100mph tape), but it does the trick.....
I do love the look of wood-n-steel however. I recently sold a Norinco AK47S, and Polytech M14 to pick up this one....
SAI M1A Bush rifle. All the major parts minus bbl/reciever are USGI, with some sweet lookin wood to include the hand guard.
