    I am currently overseas, but plan on buying an M1A Scout Squad. I have a whole bunch of things I want to do to it. I have ordered alot of stuff for it, but still need to order the rifle itself, scope and scope rings and other things. This is what I have ordered, so you see where I am going with this.

    M14 Troy Modular Chassis
    X6 rail thermal covers
    Magpul BUIS front and rear
    Generic Flashlight and mount, I don't plan on really using it too much
    Stark SE-1 AR-15 Pistol Grip
    Magpul CTR-C (Commercial) Stock BLACK
    TROY Modular Combat Grip - BLACK
    AR-15 EZ Carbine QD Swivel Attachment, Daniel Defense
    Troy Q.D. 360 Rail Mount - Push Button
    Scope? I will shoot it for fun, and go deer hunting, but I do not plan on entering competitions or becoming a sniper. I want something for those purposes stated. I am unsure what to get.

    It was bad enough picking out the rifle, as I went through everyone's posts and read all there opinions, as well as researched and read reviews for different rifles. I finally just said, screw it, I am getting the M1A Scout Squad. So if you have any other suggestions, like a scope, or other customizations, I would love to hear them.

    Sounds like it's going to be a nice rifle rakestwin1.

    I'm not much of an optics guy... my M1A sports a set of NM irons. However, I'd think that for what you want to do, some kind of low-intermediate power optic may be a good compromise.

    Perhaps something like a Leupold VX3 1.5-5, or equivilent.

    come home safe.

    I like that Valdada I have seen on a couple rifles. It is 30 mm.

    Well, I decided on Bushnell Trophy XLT 4-12x40mm Matte Riflescope with DOA 600 and Leapers Weaver Style 1" High Profile See-Thru Rings. I think that for the price it will work for what I need it too.
