Thoughts on a M1A trade?

I have a local friend who has offered me a National Match in trade for a SOCOM 16 that I was planning to drop into a Sage EBR chassis.

The idea of dropping a very accurate NM into the Sage chassis appeals to me for the accuracy - but is putting that into that chassis a bad idea?

I feel like the trade is a good one - but I don't want that chassis to go to waste either.

Thoughts?

Take the trade, keep the NM in its regular stock, keep the EBR and buy a second rifle for it.

Simple.

Yes, you have no choice.
You must buy a 2nd rifle.

yeah...it'd be a shame to see the sage go to waste...you should mail it to me and I'll use it on my XM21 Bula DMR build until you get sick of the NM.

The EBR stock does not use a front band, which will be unitized on a NM rifle. You would need to swap it out for a plain gas cylinder if you want to drop the National Match rifle into an EBR stock.

Keep in mind that the most elaborate part of a NM rifle is the bedded stock. If you are not going to use it that way, just get a Loaded model to drop in the EBR chassis.

OK, OK - you've all convinced me.
I'm going to pass on the NM trade right now.
I don't have the heart to take one apart after what I've read here - and I have too much into the EBR stock to just give up on it.

I suppose for now I'll drop the SOCOM16 into the EBR - or possibly fish it around for a Scout Squad - that seems to be the best compromise for the EBR stock and a little bit of accuracy.
