Default Stock Options for M1A Scout

I love my Springfield Scout, but would prefer a stock with a pistol grip. I've handled outfitted EBRs, and they seemed to be almost twice as heavy as the scout with the synthetic stock.
I am not a long distance shooter, maybe 200 yards.

Can anyone point out some options besides working out so the EBR becomes as light as a M4?

not gonna happen. its a major drawback to m1a's. they are freekin heavy.

maybe contracting out some custom carbon fiber company to make you a carbon fiber stock... but with all the reinforcements i would need it still wont come close to a light weight m4 clone
