My Springfield SOCOM. I restocked it in a USGI Big Red walnut stock, refinished it in a hand-rubbed linseed oil (thinned with mineral spirits) finish and installed a Sparrowhawk FDS-Ambi full dummy kit (selector switch).
I really like the way that looks. Sexy rifle.

Thanks, guys. Although I came of age with the M16A1/AR-15 (which IMO looks great in a black stock and absolutely atrocious in walnut if you’ve ever seen one), I prefer most rifles stocked in walnut or laminate. I realize this SOCOM was made for the elements, but I always loved the look of the M-14/M1-A in wood, especially walnut. After doing some research, I opted for a USGI Big Red stock. To be 100% truthful, I really did not refinish it. It was dirty, so I cleaned it, but I left any dings and dents in it as it earned them 50 years ago. All I did after cleaning was rub it down with linseed oil thinned with mineral spirits (about 15 coats). It looked like this when I got it.

It’s got some figure for a military stock.

Looks pretty gay. I'd shoot circles around that turd with an SKS.
