    The SOCOM Rifle
    I've a lovely new M1A Socom 16" with the glass stock, tritium front sight and compensator. The local range does not permit competition with the compensator because it is "unfair to the nearby competitors?" Total BS, but that's how it is. I'd like to put a flash hider or just a plain end cap...

    Picked up a relatively new (I'm guessing 2013 or 2014 based upon serial number) SOCOM 16 with 6 magazines and a decent hard case for $1300. Mechanically it looks and feels new - was told only fired 40 times. However, the previous owner decided to camo spray paint the stock and to me, it's...
