With the Socom or Scout there is the forward rail. The Socom has a Tritium front sight that I like. But the Loaded has the better rear sight barrel and the tuned trigger.
So which did you choose and why?
My very first was a Scout Squad and I firmly believe the 18.0" barrel is the very best length length for general purpose shooting... I like mine with a GLFS and a DC Vortex from SEI.
If you prefer a traditional stock consider installing the M8 hand guard
from UltiMAK and a low sitting Aimpoint or Scout scope.
I you want a pistol grip consider an EBR chassis from SAGE. BTW, you can have any M1A/M14 trigger tuned after buying the rifle.
My collection includes a 16.25", two 18.0" and two 22.0" configurations.
