    im posting these pics to get feedback on this set up. i have not shot this gun yet with this stock but i really like the way it looks. vltor socom EMOD stock with ultimak rail, aimpoint comp ml3, harris bipod and olight m20 warrior weapon light. i wanted a pistol grip setup and this seems like a lite weight and simple configuration. i like the low forward mount of the non magnified optic for cowittness and use on close quarters. im eager to see how far away i can shoot at night with the m20 warrior. it appears to light up fairly well at 100 yds. i put the smooth reflector in the light for maximum throw but not sure if there is a noticeable difference. while standing i plan on using the left bipod leg as a fore-grip.

    Looks like a pretty nice set up. Honestly, and just my opinion, I hate an AR stock on anything not an AR. Perhaps the Magpul PRS would look better in my mind. Now it just needs to be something other than black! ;)

    I dig it. Put an 18.5" barrel on it, strip the optics and bipod, and it'd be ideal (for me).

    the gun is about 12lbs. with out the bipod and light, the gun is pretty lite compared to the wood stock. i know the gun looks cumbersome with the long barrel but i kinda just did this setup for night shoots. i still prefer the good ol fashioned wood stock in most situations. the gun deserves a scope but since these guns have problems holding zeros so i went w/ the lite weight low mount which i can double check the zero with my irons. the bipod also makes up for the non-magnification. i live on a ranch so i have areas of 300-400 yds to shoot.....making the 22" bbl desired. not that a scout couldnt handle that distance, but i want the full velocity the .308 has to offer.

    looks like a good setup. You will have no problem hitting targets at 400 yards if you shoot straight. :)

    I've been looking at a similar setup for myself, but for use with a scope. How easily does the stock height adjust?

    Nice set up!

    I prefer a lighter config. 18" barrel, Vltor stock, ultimak, smith ent direct connect vortex FH, winter safety, and an aimpoint T1 micro.

    stock height is easy to adjust with a wrench. raises one inch. plenty high for a scope.

    That's a nice looking build. I seriously considered a similar setup for one of my M1A's. I went with a AR10 instead.
