Very nice
How do you like the Ultimak rail compared to the factory ring setup
does the choat flash suppressor significantly cut flash compared to the rifle without
I also like the wood stocks ,very attractive.

Hi: I really like the scout set up; it's really quick but the practical range with a 2.5X scope is less than with the 3X9 variable. The Heavy clark barrel and larger scope on the other rifle adds a bit of weight but I like that setup too. Bench shooting it is a lot of fun.

With good mags and ammo, the Clark barrel rifle shoot 1 MOA. The scout set up between 1.5 and 2.0 MOA

Take care/kirk

Hi:

The scout rifle's stock is a factory ruger stock. The other came from Clark; it has an after-market recoil pad installed although I'm not sure why. 223's are not much of a recoil problem. I also have a stock GB that has the factory gray laminate. In fact, I have several Ruger rifles with that factory gray laminate and I have to say they are by far my favorite type of wood!

Thanks/kirk

As for groups. With just the right ammo and good mags, the clark heavy barrel shoots 1 MOA. The scout between 1.5 and 2 depending with good ammo and man has that gotten expensive)! That's if I do my part. Some days are better than others.

Those stocks are quite nice! I've been thinking of getting something like that for one of my Mini-14 rifles.

Nice weapon, you have good taste! I recently bought a laminated stock from Stocky's that looks similar to yours only it's buckskin brown. I haven't received it yet but I can't wait. What is the difference in weight compared to the factory wood, or synthetic?

Laminates are by far the heaviest of the three but a few extra ounces for a stiffer more durable wood stock is worth it to me.
