You know, I'm not a huge fan of the SAGE stocks and the other HS/LD stuff on an M1A/M14. A plain walnut stock or a GI issue fiberglass one is good enough for me.

BUT!

With that being said, that Blackfeather chassis is dead sexy.

Dammit, and I was all set to pick up another M1A before this friggin' pants-on-head stupid panic hit. Guess I'll see if I can wait it out or just bite the bullet.

Hey H20Man. Gorgeous looking M14. I am considering purchasing the Blackfeather stock for my M14. I know you are the master when it comes to these guns, so I was wondering what your take on it is?

How do you like it?

How does it handle?

Do you find that the weight is manageable compared to lets say an AR-308?

Any more pictures you can post of it?

Thanks!

Thank you.... don't tell anyone, but I've sold off all but one of my SAGE EBR stocks

I love the "RS", the balance is almost perfect and it's lighter than the AR-10 I once owned.

I have a Blackfeather "RS" photo album available on Facebook with 54 pictures.

Hey H20. I noticed on your Facebook you posted that your current configuration is 10lbs. Is that with the T1 or the Eotech?

Thank you!

That's with the T-1 on the RD.

The EOTech is on the CASM, it's just a few ounces over 10 pounds and is probably my favorite configuration.

That said, I replaced the EOTech with a Leupold Mark 4 1.5-5x20mm MR/T in LOW SEI wire EDM rings.
This bumps the weight up to 12 lbs.

Thanks H20. I emailed M14.ca yesterday and they are releasing the railed handguard this week I believe.

What are you opinions on mounting a red dot forward on a railed handguard as opposed to mounting it how you had it.

Why did you like the Eotech over the T1?

Thanks a bunch!

I have seen pictures of the new top rail, has it's weight been published yet?

Red dots an irons are what I am most comfortable with, I have exit pupil issues with scopes.
Red dots have unlimited eye relief and their location isn't critical unless you plan to run a magnifier.
The T-1 is awesome and I'm currently running two of them on different weapons.
The EOTech offers a more precise 1 MOA center dot and I really like the 'big screen' view.

I hope that helps.

No I haven't seen any weight stats published. Im interested to know as well. It seems like the CASM mount puts the red dot too high up for a proper view. Mounting on the handguard would definitely be a little lower.

The only other thing I can think of adding to this setup is a folding stock, but from what Frank told me there aren't really any options.

It may look high, but notice how high the extension tube and butt stock are.
I had no problem getting a great cheek weld without a riser when using the CASM/EOTech and the RD/T-1. YRMV

I am with you on that, though I am not a fan of the GI fiberglass. That Blackfeather does look very sweet.

Now saying that though, all these options outside of the JAE (which I have one in), make them AW in California unless you remove the mag release. I am not aware of any bullet-button like config other than people using a screw driver, which doesn't appeal to me. I just haven't been sold on anything, and I like using my pre-ban 20 rounders. I did not RAW in 2000 an M1A.

Nothing wrong with a tight fitting USGI fiberglass stock.

Other than a possible tweak or two after firing a few hundred rounds, my
CQB-16-BFRS build is finished... the Aimpoint M4 is the icing on the cake.




EDIT: my build isn't finished yet.

Frank is sending me one of his new railed hand guards, I'll post images and a report as soon as I can.

Thank you.
That is a SAGE op rod guide block that has SEI's M80HT.
It is ready to be dropped into a SAGE EBR chassis.

I don't understand the need for a flashlight on a .308 battle rifle? Does that flashlight iluminate out to 800 yds?

I don't think he spec'd that build to push out to 800m. The short barrel and red dot seems to suggest much less then that.

You are correct.

The barrel is 16.25" and I have set the rifle up for a distance of < 400 yards.


As you can probably tell from my previous posts, this is a work in progress... changes are frequent.
I will be making even more changes to this build that include moving the optic to the new Scout rail
and having it sit much lower. I am thinking about having Tony at LAW483.com graft a wooden E2 style
butt stock to the chassis. This would allow me easier access to the iron sights without cranking the rear
peep up so freaking high.
