I have treated myself toy. M1A Socom 16. Firing a .308 cal round, the accuracy... simply amazing for such a short barrel. I was pounding anything I put my sights on at 75 yards. I am anxious to see what I can do at greater distances. The recoil is not sharp at all... The gas chamber is robust and takes care of that.
To put it simply... I have fallen in love with this rifle already.
The second rifle in the photo is my M91/30 Mosin Nagant (1939).
:) very :)
