I'm very satisfied with the geometry of the std stock SCR with a scope, plus I prefer the aesthetics over the MC. Just another view FWIW.
I agree. I have both. It isn't a big deal at all and you can slap a riser on if you really need one.

I have to agree that the std stock looks better, though the mc stock certainly helps when using larger diameter scopes.

I have a 3X9X32 so it's important for me (or a riser etc).

For lower sights then not so much.

Just found this thread. Do they make a 80% lower for these?

Don't think so, though contact Fightlite directly to be sure.

Wonder if the brn180 upper would work on an scr lower?

Better ask Fightlite as the SCR uses a proprietary bolt carrier?

There’s a good chance it will since the BRN180 carrier doesn’t pass into the buffer tube like a regular AR carrier would.

Congratulations, looks great!

How's the balance with a wood stock (been meaning to ask all you wood stock guys as mine with it's synthetic stock is a little nose heavy)?

I'm undecided on the optic. Without sights/optics he rifle weighs 5.8lbs. The PA 1-6 is chunky so I may stick my MRO or Eotech on it.

This is a recent version, so I'm not seeing the bad trigger folks have previously mentioned. I'd say just shy of 5lbs and pretty smooth. The mag release is way too far forward, so a handy ambi release was needed. I found that lancer mags stick and don't drop free. Magpul mags fly out like the burrito I had last night. Safety is shotgun style which also takes some getting used to.

I need to take some more/better pics...



Which model MI handguard are you using?

I'm also using the Gibbz G4 side charging upper, but the anti-rotation tabs on my MI handguard don't fit the upper. I'm wondering if it's got something to do with the receiver or possibly the MI handguard on mine....?

Bought the upper in April 2019 direct from Gibbz so I'm assuming it's the most recent iteration of it.

You just have to cut the tabs off. They don't fit the Gibbz uppers.

Thanks for the info. Any reports of the handguard rotating due to not having the tabs? I put the green loctite that came with the handguard but relying on a chemical bond doesn't seem ideal.

I would recommend using a hand guard with a proprietary barrel nut that doesn't allow rotation. In that case the tabs aren't really doing anything anyway.

You could also use a low profile scope riser which are pretty cheap. I wouldn't want to glue it either.

That's a couple hundred bucks there...

I might just do a modified 3D design of MI's anti-rotation tab to fit the Gibbz upper. I can get it metal sintered at Shapeways a lot cheaper than buying a new handguard and if anyone here wants to be able to use their MI handguard on the Gibbz upper you could order off there too.

I use an extended mag release from Odyn works, but you still have to move your right hand a bit out of position to actuate it. It does help though.

I'd also recommend putting the ambi mag release from Knight's Armament, so you can do reloads with your support hand and maintain a proper shooting grip on the right side. You just grab the fresh hand with your support hand, press the release on the left side with your thumb and then insert the fresh mag.

I wrap my left index finger around to hit the mag release. Not as fast as mil spec AR ergonomics, but still faster than AK style IMO, and I don't have to move my shooting hand. You could also use your left thumb with a ambi release.

I certainly didn't get into this hobby to save money haha. The cost of ammo dwarfs everything else anyway.

But if you're looking to economize, a scope riser is like $20. That's the cheap way to go. You could also just put your RDS on the union.

I have no idea what's going on with your economy solution so post some pics when you do it. I'm curious.

I feel the balance with the Boyd wood stock is considerably better than with the original synthetic stock. With the addition of the extended / mag release and trigger job it becomes a very user friendly utilitarian rifle. Every time I take it out, I’m impressed with the accuracy of this current setup. Last outing I put it on a rest with quality .223 ammo and was shooting sub moa at 100 yards - granted it was never built for this intention just a nice surprise.

The wood stock mod was simple with basic tools.

PM me and I can share my approach regarding using the “Boyd’s replacement Remington 1100 Stock” if anyone is interested.

I’d be interested. I’ve found a few instructions over time but not one has been clear enough for me. Pictures of the mods would be the appreciated.

Many thanks

Accuracy seems to be a common theme. I used the standard Remington 1100 walnut stock, Wilson Combat SS barrel...very accurate. Balance is good with the Remington stock. My favorite rifle.

I address the Remington 1100 stock mods in my SCR build thread. Hope it helps.

Couldn't post pix on PM (not sure why). So here's requested info on spacer. This pic of disassembled SCR shows the buffer tube with threaded end for the nut which secures the stock to the lower.



The nut needs a surface (I call it an internal shelf) to tighten against. Location of the shelf is different between the SCR synthetic and the Remington 1100, hence the need for a spacer in the Remington to compensate.

Thanks all for the wood stock info, will be going that route on mine going forward.

Question: Are Remy 1100 and 870 stocks the same?

I have read that the 870 stocks have a shorter stock bolt, and if so how does that line up with the SCR's buffer tube?

Yes, however, I would double check whatever 1100 stock you are using to verify the dimensions.

Probably better to ask this in the shotgun forum. Did find this on the interweb.
