Well yes, but I didn't know that. WAAAY back in Feb 2019, the M1A Scout was my first gun purchase, ever. I got the 18" one because I thought it was a nice middle ground since I "wasn't going to get an AR,." Fast forward to June, I discovered that even M80 ball ammo is expensive and 5.56 less so, so I bought an AR, and spent a ton of time and money bolting stuff to it that I thought was cool. Then I got a CZ Scorpion, which is even cheaper to shoot, so rinse and repeat on that.

Now that I have some other bases covered, I don't need a "general-purpose" M1A, so I wanted to go back to the full length and put some love/time/money into the M1A. To my knowledge, the M21 wasn't available when I bought this.

Very cool...Did you throw this build up on another gun forum as well, or am I mistaken? Glad you got the cheek piece sorted out...You'll have to post your range results, if it shoots half as good as it looks you'll be in business.

Not another forum, but I did post it to Reddit.
