Hello all,

I just took the plunge and bought a SOCOM 16. I did a a lot of research here before my purchase. Thank you all for your help and advice!

I plan on using this rifle as a pick up and go gun. I want to use it for an all around weapon and am outfitting it as such. I welcome all suggestions on how to improve the setup.

Here is what I have for it currently.

I also have ordered a bunch of ammo, so I am good on that front.

The one thing I need to figure out is optics. I have done a lot of research, but am still undecided. I like the setup with a reflex sight and a magnifier. Anyone have any experience with that? Anything better for the setup I am building?

Thanks again for all your help, everyone!

Welcome on board N7parry, pull up an old ammunition crate and sit awhile. This here Gun Board is a great place for information on our beloved M14 Battlerifle and military surplus ammunition for feeding her. Again welcome on board and have yourself a great weekend. Thank you for your service to our country, America is better off because of you.

I have an EOTech on my Socom, no magnifier but that is a personal preference. I'd also recommend an Aimpoint. Red dot optics are best on the Socom in my opinion, I prefer it as a short range weapon, but it supports my full size M14/M1As.

Welcome in by the way!
