Hi I'm new to the forum and just ordered a Socom 16. I have a few questions about the gun. My local gun shop told me that they can't give me an approximate month when it will arrive. I contacted SAI and they couldn't give me much all they said is somewhere between 3-6 months but "probably not that long". Has anyone recently ordered and received their new rifle and about how long was the wait. I am a volunteer sharpshooter for my county forest preserve deer management program. We started out using .223 but got permission to use .308. I always wanted a m1a and fell in love with the look of the socom. Can anyone tell me if the socom is capable of tight groups? The qualification for all of the sharpshooters is 5 shots into a 1.9" circle at 50 yards using an optic. Any comments or info is greatly appreciated. Thanks for you help and allowing me to be a part of your forum.
