Strike Through Text Option now on-line

You may now use the Strike Through option in the post text editor.

There is a square blank button located at the end of the options on the right. I could not get the 'S' to show up, but the button still works.

  • SOCOM 16 w/ wood furniture pics

    I know it's been done before, but I've marveled at these configurations for years on the discussion forums and figured it was time for me to convert one of my own SOCOM 16s to wood.

    After browsing the BTF used stocks on Gunbroker selling for upwards of $90, I got an e-mail from Boyd's. They had brand new walnut M1A stocks for only $106! Ordered the stock liner w/screws, front ferrule, and sling swivels from Fulton Armory. The existing butt-plate was an easy transplant, but the ferrule and liner were necessary because they're molded into the fiberglass stocks. The front swivel screws included with the Fulton kit were too long and interfered with the action. So, the Dremel came out and cut them down to size. Over the weekend, I removed the screws and put in a couple of rivets. Here are some pics.

    Fiberglass may be more stabile, but walnut looks 100% better!

      That would be interesting with one of the BM-59 Hybrid folding stocks they did back in the 1980s to early 1990s.

          I find it very interesting and I want to see the picture after you have done it. It is really great to know that you have the passion and interest with what you want to do in your house. Try to upload a photo here so we can all see it.
