Greetings from San Antonio.

So I'm new to the m14/m1a platform but I've been around the AR platform for a few years seeing as I'm in the military. I bought a used SA socom16 on impulse from buds. I was feeling a little nervous about buying a weapon I knew nothing about, but after watching a youtube video of how to disassemble and what to lube, I feel more at ease. Would it be fair to say the anxiety most new users feel is over played in our minds, and that the m14/m1a is a easy weapon to maintain? And yes I've ordered the owners guide from Duffy and that other guy. I'll be damned if I have a $1500 paper weight.

And I guess I need to post in order to gain access to other parts of the forum.

Welcome aboard, 91dxo, getting a few post is pretty easy, put a post in the Geedunk, send a couple of cards to the troops and put a post in saying so. GI2 After a couple of posts you will see how simple it is. I know you will enjoy the forums and being here with us. Have fun.

If I can figure this rifle out, anybody can! Just be sure to read as much as you can, and if you run into something you're not sure about, just ask. Be sure to go through all of the "stickies", lots of useful info there.
Welcome aboard! Enjoy that SOCOM, I love mine!

Access is not dependent on the number of posts one has. If you can't see something that you believe you should be able to see, sing out and we'll look into it.

Welcome aboard!
