SOCOM 16 CQB Model

Any of you folks seen this new version of the SOCOM 16 from SAI? Just showed up in my facebook news feed this morning - it's your usual SOCOM 16, but in a factory pistol grip stock with "SOCOM 16 CQB" etched on the op rod. Can't seem to find any non-facebook pictures or information at the moment.

Thanks from breastroker

Looks pretty cool, but also seems rather bulky. Like a chopped archangel or something.

FB link doesn't work for those of us not into Facebookery.

I found this:

Ehh.. it's not blowin' my skirt up.

To paraphrase Crocodile Dundee, that's not a CQB SOCOM, THIS is a CQB SOCOM:

Is that the AG composite stock or a McMillan by chance? I just picked up my first Socom and I love that setup.

But back to the topic, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I'm sure people will rush to buy them then realize they may have been better off building they're own version of it instead.

Thanks from ARMT Guy

Thanks!

It's the McMillian.

Conventional rifle stocks don't quite feel right to me, having been pretty much raised on AKs and ARs, etc. I'm very much accustomed to pistol grips. The McMillian MFS-14 stock was the ideal solution for me on this rifle.

Did you bed the action yourself and did you notice an improvement in accuracy after using that stock?

I bought a bedding kit but my lazy butt still hasn't gotten around to doing it yet.

Let the lashings begin!

No lashing.
Have you shot it since placing it in that stock....Does it hold a group?!

Man, if that McMillan folder gave the option to switch between a variety of AR grips, I would buy/own it in a heartbeat.

I don't recall it having any issues of not holding a group.

I zero'd it with 155gr Hornady TAPs and it did alright, but it's been so many years since I zero'd it that I have no idea how it performed exactly.

It was an absolute mistake for Springfield not to have put a standard M4 and replaceable grip on that chassis. HUGE mistake.

People want customization. I, for one, would like having a Hera folding stock adapter on it along with a different PG. Others have their own ideas...

A lot of possibilities, and they locked you in to their PG and just the stock replacement, no folding option.

The Blackfeather or the McMillan are still the best of the best. I had a CM Manufacturing stock that I sold once upon a day, regret it now... One of these days I'll snag a Blackfeather.

I held one last week and it felt pretty good to me. It was lightweight and plasticy. I debated pretty hard about getting it, but ordered a Scout Squad instead. Just liked the traditional stock better.

Thanks from Krusty
