SPRINGFIELD ARMORY SOCOM II RIFLE, BLACK COMPOSITE STOCK
The Springfield Armory Socom II rifle features a 16 inch barrel, the shortest allowed for civilian use under federal law (without an ATF Form 4). This is a rifle meant for close quarters work.
A re-tuned gas system insures that the shortened barrel functions reliably, while maintaining the integrity of the M1A design.
The new Cluster Rail allows you to mount a wide variety of optics, lights and other accessories that are designed to fit a standard Picatinny or 1913 style rail. (Scope and light in photo are not included). Because the rail is mounted forward of the receiver, any optics you put on the rifle must have long eye relief.
The sights are standard M1A, but the rear sight has a larger than standard aperture that's more of a ghost ring sight, allowing for faster pickup of your target. The front sight post has a tritium insert for low light conditions.
The SOCOM M1A and the M4 rifle serve many of the same purposes, but the SOCOM has the advantage of being chambered for the much more powerful 7.62 NATO cartridge. When every shot counts, that's a big advantage.
Caliber: 7.62mm NATO (.308 Win.)
