    So who here has built one and what was your experience? I have a dremmel and wheel for the op rod but haven't ever done the mod personally. Any good advice? Also what did you pay for yours and did you hve it installed somewhere and if so where?

    The build is starting as a bone stock Springfield scout squad circa 2015.

    Thanks!

    There may be a few here who have done it, but many have done it over at m14forum.com. Check it out over there as well.

    Are you looking for a Sage stock for yours and build up from there?

    I have worked on ALLOT of them, mostly it's just buying aftermarket parts and fitting.

    So you want to do something like one of these?

    Correct, sage ebr, didn't know of any other "ebr" in the m1a game so i abbreviated. Not looking for special edition fde or grey, just the standard ebr with telescoping stock, not the m4 stock. Are those your rifles?

    Nope none of those are personal rifles. Just customers that have been modded.

    I just read through Sage's website and don't see any mention of modifications for their EBR stock. As a matter of fact, in the FAQ it states that it is a completely drop in stock.

    I am not an M1A or a Sage EBR expert so I maybe missing something. Just curious if I am missing something. Is there some modification that they are not mentioning?

    As far as I understand the stock is drop in, the new op rod is not.

    Is there any chance someone could actually explain this? Do you have to use a different op rod for this stock? :confused:

    They weren't issued until around 2004-2005 for use in Afghanistan, it was another crane project from what I understand same guys who did a lot of the mk12etc, stuff. I have wood m14's already and want to do something more modern for the scout squad.

    I am by no means an expert, just trying to put the pieces together before starting the build. The intent of the build was what I understood to be a "mk14 ebr" clone. Was really hoping to get some good advice /feedback from other builders. Maybe time to just kill the thread.

    Since 2004 I've owned & built many of them, including the three in the picture Velzey shared.
    My advice is to keep it simple, and keep it light... they get heavy pretty fast.
    Installation is straight forward, with the op rod R&R being the most difficult.
