It's always fun to see what members can do on a budget, so bring on the gun porn!

SAI M1A Standard mfg'd in 99 TRW bbl, bolt, WRA hammer, SA USGI oprod (got lucky)





With my Alchemy Custom Delta Elite

This is a little worse than average, but the brass was on its last firing and I was tired.100 yards (excuses, excuses)

Thanks from GARRARD, CNelson, Mainzer and 1 others

Wow thats a sharp gun, do the entry level m1a's with perfectly tuned ammo shoot sub moa. I am all for saving and getting high end stuff but I know there are things that just aren't worth the additional money. Please excuse my ignorance on this topic I am an ar and bolt guy.

chefcam864 will have to answer that but, if it's like the EBR (Sage system), it'll "heavy it up" some!

Not that I'm aware of. You'll be doing well to get that kind of accuracy out of a $3k custom M1A. However, a well built rifle will put 10 rds into a Minute all day long! For practical purposes, that's more than adequate.

As far as accuracy before and after goes, I don't think the Archangel makes the rifle more accurate in the same way a Sage, JAE, or McMillan does. I think the stock offers much improved ergonomics for bench and prone shooting with a scope, which allows YOU to shoot the rifle more accurately. It really is a joy to shoot with, and my groups did improve, but as I said earlier, I think this has more to do with improved ergonomics.

The rifle is slightly heavier in the Archangel stock, but not too much. It currently weighs about 12-13lbs with the Nikon Monarch 4-16x50 SF Scope and CASM mount.

I always use Brownells Alumahyde II. If you cure it properly it hardens well and has a really tough finish. I've purposely thrown around several AR's that I painted with Alumahyde just to see if I can get it to scratch or crack and haven't had any marks yet.

+1 on Alumahyde II. It's great stuff; easy to apply, prep is fairly straight forward, and when properly cured it's tough as nails. Just make sure the air fairly warm when you spray it and give it a week or longer to cure.

Not the greatest pic, but I did this Steyr Mountain rifle with it, and it turned out great!


As far as putting a scout in the Archangel goes, I doubt it'd be an issue. Should have plenty of clearance for the Scout mount.

Thanks from GARRARD and CNelson

My SAI squad-scout moves back and forth between a CA doctored Archangel and a USGI wood. Since these pics were taken we've moved on to a basset mounted scope. I've found the Archangel to be slightly more accurate, but slightly heavier.

If it were up to me and I was the only one shooting the wood just feels better, feels smooth, smells better, feels more 'alive'. I'd find the perfect cheek rest and enjoy.

Unfortunately I've been cursed with a girl who can roll the cheek rest up 4-5 clicks and rock the zombie targets, so I'm stuck with the plastic for now.

It's not a JAE, it's not a Sage, but we're enjoying it for now.
