    Give them an email and ask about changing the reticle.
    There were a lot worse places than Phu Bai and they weren't all in Viet Nam.

    Re: A Stainless M14

    When this stock showed up in the for sale section of the other fourm, I knew I had to have it, and I knew it would be perfect for this build. A standard profile AG Composites carbon fiber stock, with matching handguard, and carbon fiber Bradley Adjustable Cheek Rest. I got lucky and pounced on it; just in the right place at the right time. I'm debating whether or not to cut out vent slots in the handguard; sure don't want to ruin it, since I don't know how I'd ever replace it.

    First impressions- It's light, super stiff, and plenty of room for a heavy barrel. The receiver drops in fairly easy, so It will need bedding. It's not sloppy, but has some rock from front to back. The rear sling swivel hole will need some sort of reinforcement I think. It's basically just a slot cut in the bottom of a hollow buttstock, and doesn't have anything to butt up against when you would snug down the bottom buttplate screw.

    The stock is factory drilled at the 3, 6, and 9 o'clock positions for accessory picatinny rails (I got 2 of them with the stock). I may need to come up with some grey anodized aluminum ones, or make/find some stainless steel ones to plug the holes.

    Stay tuned for more interesting and neat parts to come . . .

    If you decide to cut slots in the hand guard, I suggest practicing on a couple of crappy hand guards first.

    I'm not sure I have the guts to try on this handguard. Unless I can find a carbon fiber one with slots cut already, I may just have a USGI vented fiberglass one hydro-dipped.

    Comparing this solid carbon fiber one to a USGI solid fiberglass one, there doesn't appear to be much difference in strength. Both can be flexed about the same according to my calibrated meat hooks. That would suggest that the ribs on the USGI one are helping in the strength department.
