Hey folks! Three years ago I owned a Springfield Armory M1A loaded model with a walnut stock. It was my favorite rifle but things got tight financially and I had to sell it. Every time I saw one in a gun shop it made me miss it. So just last week I purchased a SOCOM 16! Can't wait to shoot it this weekend. Figured I'd try the shorty this time and see what it's capeable of. Anyway, I hope to learn more from you wiser men.
