    The older brother arrived today to match up with my M1A. A Springfield Armory M1 Garand in .308cal (believe there were only 10,000 of these produced). Couldn't go to the range since it was too late, but I spent the evening field stripping and listening to that en bloc eject. :D

    Roger that... Might head to ASC tomorrow after work if the rain lets up. Might even take some video since it's my first time ever shooting this rifle, let alone a Garand. :D

    Although, instead of modifying my M1A, I was thinking about picking up a SOCOM 16 and putting the JAE-100 on it.

    I got a JAE100 on order for my M1A.

    Not that it matters for my intended purpose, but the only consistant gripe you'll hear from folks is that you are pretty much committed to optics once you install it unless you want to take the cheek piece off. The cheek wield is too high othersize to effectivly use the irons without getting some serious comps from your chiropractor.

    I was kicking around getting one since I first saw them over a year or two ago, but after seeing the difference it made in the accuracy on a friends M1A loaded and then trying it out for myself I decided to take the plunge on one.

    Of course this just means I'll have to find another M1A to replace the current one in plain jane configuration.

    Looks like the same route I'm going to have to follow. Buy another M1A to keep this one in original configuration.

    Hey Cyfer,did you get to shoot your new rifle yet?

    Well good and bad. Friday I took it out and put about 24 rounds through it (3 en enbloc clips) and it worked great. No problems at all. Then I took it out again yesterday and it shoots, but after the first or second round fired, the en bloc clip pops up. I tried looking for any solution or others that might run into the same issue with no luck. Any info from you guys would be a great help on what might be happening and how I can go about getting it fixed.

    First thing I would check is the clip latch spring. Take it out and stretch it a little and then run a few clips through the rifle. It is just a temporary fix. If it solves the problem ,order a new one from Orion 7 or Fulton Armory.

    While you have it apart, check the little cut out area in your stock for the clip latch, If it a new stock the cut might be a little shallow. When the rifle is fired , it can hit the clip latch and cause this also. A lot of things can cause this , but this is the place to start.
