Well, it comes with a 1 1/2" (approx) thick recoil pad, similar to a Pachmayr Decelerator. The trigger is military 2-stage, and it cycles really nicely, very smooth. The 7.62 NATO is a low recoil round in any event, but especially in a gas operated semi-auto. Even though specs say it is a 9 lb gun, it feels more like 8 with the synthetic stock. Like I said, Big Fun!

Great choice - I have the M1A "loaded" with a green synthetic stock......sounds like you have a winner here!

Cheers!

I've had my scout for about 6 years and have done a few things to it. The SEI vortex flash suppressor is superior the the unit installed. Also the SEI extended bolt release, SEI tritium front sight, SEI, gas block, sadlak Ti piston, and sadlak extended mag release are what I have found to really round out this great rifle. I've a Trijicon tri-power on mine and it shoots great.

YMMV.

Happy shooting.

I don't read for a day or two and miss you taking out the M1A!!

Nice!!

I'm thinking maybe you get a good QD scope mount, and move your Leupold from the 35 Rem over to the M1A.
You'll be able to "drop bombs" at 200 yards with the Looey on that rifle!

Whats the eye relief on your Leupold? Needs to be long eye relief if you set it up like a "Jeff Cooper" Scout rifle.

The Leupold from the 336 wouldn't work as the eye relief is way too short. I am trying out a BSA I saw that according to the reviews stands up to hard recoil well. I have a BSA on my 10/22, and like it alot. We shall see when we get together to shoot this month, wont we, Mssr SkunkWerx?

Nice gun, I wish I had invested in one of these instead of the LR308 build I put together.

Nice looking rifle! Get a Sadlak NM spring guide. The smooth action becomes an even smoother action. Doesn't require tools to change either!

Very nice Rifle, I actually think I was at Berwyn-Rod and gun club the day you were shooting that monster!
