    If I were to purchase the Sage EBR stock, is it possible to gather all the other parts to build a .308 rifle?

    Not sure what you mean. Your question is the same as "if I bought a 10/22 stock can I gather all the other parts to build a 10/22".

    It is just a stock, you still need an M1A/M14 to put into it. Of course all the individual parts are out there to build an M1A/M14 but the sum of parts cost way more then buying a complete one and swapping stocks.

    I guess what I'm asking is...if the stock is purchased, would it be more cost effective to purchase the barrel, trigger, etc.? As opposed to purchasing an M1A?

    Well you still need EVERY part of the rifle except the stock. You need the receiver and all its parts, the barrel and all its parts, the trigger group, gas system. You need a complete rifle without a stock.

    So you buy a complete rifle and sell the old stock and hand guard off of it. I think I got about $75 for mine but it has been a while so I don't recall for sure.

    Buying a complete rifle is the most cost effective way today. Years ago there used to be M14 parts kits that were reasonably price but they are all long gone.

    All of mine are built on Norinco and Poly Tech receivers using SEI, USGI and Norinco/Poly Tech parts.

    What SAGE stock are you considering?
