M1A Socom16 with Custom Modstock

I had gotten my M1A about 2 months ago and I wanted to make it into a modern tactical rifle so I started doing so research and found that I liked the Vltor look with the Modstock and CASV-14 rails so that was what I decided to do. I then started to see what it would take to get a Modstock and at CASV-14 and found they were backorder everywhere. I end up talking to Vltor and found out that the CASV-14 would be available within a month and that the Modstock was way out and that it would be months. I went ahead and order the CASV-14 from them. So I was bummed.

I then did a search on the this forum to see if anyone was selling one and I came across a post by SmokyBaer about make a custom one on your own. Will I read the post all the way through and I determined that was something I could do. I then started to try and find the parts I needed. I check the classifieds here on the forum and found that 310yuma had a M14 Fiberglass stock so I got it from him. I then when on eBay and bought a Mako Mossberg 500 pistol grip with quick release mounts. When I got the stock in I knew I would have to make modifications of the stock to fit my M1A by using JB Weld to fill in the spot where the selector switch would be located at and other changes so the receiver would fix perfectly. I then follow what SmokyBaer said and cut the stock and mounted the pistol grip and JB Weld it in place. I did not want a fix stock like SmokyBaer did so I started to look to see what I could do and I came across the Mako recoil reducing butt stock and I thought that would be perfect so I got one as will as a buffer tube and castle nut. I got the adjustible cheek rest with the stock so that I can be able to adjust for the scope I would use. I had to make an extention for the the rest because it did not fit where I wanted it so I cut a piece of pipe and shaped it then JB Weld it to the cheek rest.




I also mounted a rail on the bottom so that I could use a Magpul AFG. I already had a bipod and the rail to mount it so I did that as will. Once I did that I painted the complete stock and the CASV-14 that I order from Vltor and with Magpul OD Duracoat paint so that everything would match. Here is how it turned out!!




I am mounting a Burris AR-332 Prism Sight Scope because a friend of my had one and I liked it.

Once I got it all put together I when to my local gun club to shoot and to get the scope sighted in. I adjusted the scope and then when out to 100 yards and this is what I shot with it at that range. The 4 round in the 9 and bull were the last that I shot. I was very pleased with the group that I got with it.



So in the end my Modstock did not cost me $500.00 but only $195.00. I have to give thanks to SmokyBaer for the inspiration to create my own stock and I thank you sir. Also want to thank 310yuma for the great deal on the stock.

Awesome work!, I'm waiting for the second round of JB weld to dry on my smokybaer inspired modstock - same grip and everything.

Guess I get a sneak preview of what it'll look like once I get it painted!

Great Work,

Mike

Thanks from Netman

When you get it done I would sure like to see some pictures of it as will.

Definitely - I hope it turns out as nice, you got the transition from the stock to the grip really smooth, looks like one piece.

Looks nice. I also recommend looking up one done by patriot armory 308. He had some custom fab work in aluminum on his. Let him use ar-15 pistol grips as well.

Thanks from Netman

You guys are pushing me to try to build one my self. I have been looking for a cheap fiberglass stock for a couple weeks and nobody seems have one. This M1A has really sparked my project bug.

Looks like you did a great job on building the stock! Y'all need to stop putting ideas in my head.

I pretty much did the same thing with one of mine. It is Fulton Armory bolt/barrel/receiver with USGI/LRB parts kit. I just shot it the other day too with that recoil reducing stock, and it does make a noticeable difference. Here are a couple pics of mine. Some of them are of the build too. I have the SEI GLFS-H, SEI DC Vortex, and SEI Extended Bolt Stop added on. I also have a Sadlak Tactical Mag Release.

The other is a SAI Standard.









This is where she sits now. I want to get a scope mount and a low powered scope on it, but I haven't yet.


Thanks from Netman

That is looking pretty sweet. I like the camo pattern that you have on it. Yes, the Mako stock does make a difference in the recoil.

how are y'all actually attaching the pistol grip and stock to the stock of the m14?

Cut the stock at about the same angle as the pistol grip. There is a hole in the pistol grip where it would normally attach to a Mossberg 500. Drill a hole through the stock and attach it with a bolt.

This is a pic of where I filled in the selector switch area, but you can see where the bolt went though.
