I would really like to fit the Scout with a Trijicon V-Cog, but I am unwilling to spend that much $$$$ for a scope. I have used a V-Cog and it was fantastic. The MRO works well for me, I like it better than the Eotech. my Duty rifle has an Eotech mounted, and it works fine, I just like the MRO better.

Springfield polymer stock vs walnut.
Looks like 1/2lb weight difference. Does the Springfield poly stock flex and attribute to inaccuracy like some say? Many say to dump the SA poly stock for wood or usgi fiberglass.
Thoughts?

How does it shoot in the plastic stock, some perform well while others tend to suck. Does it fit good, trigger lockup tight?

Jim, that 1/2 lbs difference doesn't seem like much except at the end of a long day hunting. My poly stocked Scout shoots as good as I can out to about 300 yds(my limit area). If you are going to the range to shoot beyond 4-500 yds, you will probably want to go with a stiffer stock as you will want to sling up and put some pressure on the stock. Jon Wolfe makes a reinforced fiberglass USGI stock that is good and M1Army makes a "hardened" Big Red stock that is good and stiff. Or you could go to one of the new Al stock, if you want to spend the coin. You really can't tell what you will need until you actually try the rifle and see what she will do. Get some Federal GMM or American Eagle OTM for M1A's to establish your base line. Don't forget to clean your rifle when you get it and grease her up before going to the range. Above all, enjoy what you have bought.

Makes sense. I 100% can relate to the added bit of weight while walking all day. We do mostly still hunting here in the heavily wooded areas here. But, when hauling bait, lunch, and other stuff a 1/2lb might be nice to leave behind.
The cleaning kit compartment in the wood stock for keeping items to clear malfunctions is a bit attractive. But again, there's more weight added.
