While I try to figure out what OLL to build I put a new Gen II Stock on a Springfield SOCOM II with extended cluster rail, tango down bipod, Leupold 3.5-10x and Surefire weaponlight --

Darklyte that Savage looks great! I almost bought a Remington what was it? VLS? Yesterday that had a TRIANGULAR Barrel -- anyone else seen this? It had like a beavertail foreend while felt pretty cool -- BUt for a bust *** Semi-auto I think I'm staying with my M-1A --

Hey X-NewYawker,

How do you adjust the cheek-piece on the JAE? I'm planning to get one and mount a Scout in it, but I've been wondering whether or not to go with the cheek-piece that's thumbwheel adjustable.

By the way ... nice stick! :)

Thanks - Corey

Thanks! The thumb-wheels I guess are available for ordering but I don't know when they are coming out -- on t he GEn ii (like the Gen one) you have to unscrew two bolts on top of the cheek[piece and place the desired number of rubber spacers (supplied with gun) underneath you stack them up until they feel right and then screw the cheekpiece back on -- JAE gives you two lengths of bolt -- my friend Lou has a LONG face and so he bolts the CP down with NO spacers. I have about FIVE in this because I shove my face down tight to the CP and it needs to he high to line up with the center of the scope. Takes a bit of experimenting but when all put back together it's a solid as a rock. The downside is no quick way off if the scope is destroyed and I want to go to iron sites. Thumbwheels would be best.

Hey! That's not true!
Just about as pricey as some of the CA OLL builds I've seen. All depends on the peripherals; scope, mounts, etc., luckily I've been collecting a big box of parts off of earlier guns I owned (rings, lights, scopes, etc) over the years.

So is this a M1A or a Springfield SOCOM II?
I get confused...

Anyone got any links to a decent web site for sales to CA?
And would that rifle be considered "evil feature" or a feature less build that would be legal for pre ban hi cap mags?

Hey XNY,very nice rifle. All I would do is buy a nice, long , match barrel for it.
Long barrels rule!

I just took the stock off THIS rifle today --

I know the longer barrel is more accurate but the gun is going for pictures for a gun magazine and the SOCOM II is more "tactical."
Tactical is ALL the rage these days. When the pix are done I will decide what action lives in this stock.

But looking at both... the short one looks pretty cool... and Gen II better balance than Gen I.

Thanks for the info on the CP! Is the rail on this last picture (longer barrel) an aftermarket installation? I've only seen the extended rail on Socoms. If you installed it, is it a pain to install?

Sorry for asking a bunch of dumb questions ... :rolleyes: ... your set-up is basically what I'm looking to do.

Thanks - Corey

The Extended cluster rail made by VLTOR now comes on Springfield M1-A Loaded models and Socom 2s. I can't imagine installing it. There'd be lost screws everywhere. That's one of the cool things about the JAE -- T handled allen wrench and I switched these two sticks in under five minutes. (only dropped the lugs)

The Loaded and socom extended CRs are over the counter items in California. The JAE stock doesn't have a "pistol grip: so there's nothing AW about it so you can use those freakish 30 rounders if you had them from before the ban (just don't try to go prone)

The shorter barreled rifle (16") in the first set of pictures is a Socom-II. The longer barreled rifle would be an M1A (assuming it was manufactured by Springfield ... "M1A" is their nomenclature for the civilian version of the M14). I think the Socom II is also considered an M1A, though the gas-system is different than standard.

With the JAE-100 stock, either version is legal as long as it has a muzzle-brake (as opposed to a flash-suppressor). Put a flash-suppressor on it or mount the barreled action in something like a Sage EBR and you have legal problems (unless you have a way of creating a "fixed" 10-round magazine).

To use a magazine greater than 10-rounds, it must have been in your possession before the CA-AWB on hi-cap mags took affect.

Best value for a Springfield (or other MFG's) is a used one (most are like new) from someone on here on CalGuns, ARFCOM or http://www.m-14forum.com/. If you want a brand new rifle, I bought my SocomII from http://snipercountrypx.com/ and can recommend them.

I've been thinking of sending one of my Scouts to a gunsmith for a once-over ... I'll have to see if they can install the extended rail.

Thanks again for all the info!

Awesome looking rifle you have there.

IMHO, it is one of the best options currently available for those wanting a good, accurate, semi-auto rifle in .308Win.

And the JAE-100 Gen II is an outstanding addition to bring any M1A into the 21st century.
