Default M1A stock

Have a quick question. I need to know if this stock:
http://www.fulton-armory.com/stocknewwalnutgicontournometalwithoutselectorcut.a spx
will fit on a M1A Socom II. As far as I know the only difference in the M1A models is barrel length? The stocks are all the same length? Thank you!

Andy,

As far as I understand the only difference between the SOCOM and the M1-A is in the gas system and a couple of other minor differences. But the stocks are the same. But referring to the stock you posted here! I would go to gunbroker or some other source and buy a complete good stock with all the metal hardware already installed. You can get on of them from $85-$100 with the hardware in good condition. By the time you buy all the hardware for the stock on your thread and maybe have to make some adjustments to the stock. You would be way out ahead to get one from those locations. Only my thoughts! Keeping in mind most are in good condition and have been removed from a functional rifle to put some sort of aftermarket stock on them. So you know you have a good stock and ready to install!

Thanks for the reply man! As far as the stock. A qualified gunsmith friend of mine is going to be doing the work for me. He's taking the metal hardware from the socom and putting it in the wood stock. I wanted an un stained stock so I could get the exact color I wanted. I've seen his work and I trust him to do a good job. The only hardware I'm missing, that I know of, is the front sling swivel so I'll be picking up one of those. This is the rifle:

I like the rifle but I want a "light weight" wood stock and the Cluster Rail system is going bye bye. Trying to shave some weight and get a more plain jane appearance.

That is what I did with my SocomII.



What you will end up with is a synthetic stock minus the stock's original OEM front sling swivel.

The low cost solution is simply to pick up a front sling swivel and install it to your existing stock along with a hand guard with hg clip to finish up the rifle.

Note: The upper buttplate screw for a synthetic M14/M1A stock is different than an upper screw for a wood stock. Fulton carries every part you will need to do this.

Note: A wood stock also has a metal liner where a synthetic doesn't require this. If the stock your interested in doesn't have any metal, then you would need to include the liner as well.

If your interested in selling your synthetic stock, feel free to send me a pm.

So I'm finally done with this project. Thank you fragout for all the great info. Disclaimer: I did none of the work. My gunsmith friend did everything and it looks really good. I'm happy with it.imageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1393630951.227641.jpgimageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1393630967.563867.jpgimageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1393630976.926065.jpgimageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1393630988.358520.jpgimageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1393631000.841703.jpgimageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1393631010.639158.jpgimageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1393631019.205924.jpgimageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1393631028.789155.jpgimageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1393631041.121271.jpgimageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1393631049.954516.jpgimageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1393631058.529788.jpg
