What are some options for scopes and aftermarket rail setups? Any of them provide better eye relief? Anyone have experience with the Magpul stock? Worth it over a slip on cheek rest? Anything else that can be done to tighten it up without spending a lot of money? Already checked out some PSG1 parts and ruled them out. Probably great parts, but don't want to spend that much on this gun.
The factory Claw Mount scope mount is probably the most practical. That rifle will deliver good accuracy, but not stellar in my experience. They are profoundly reliable, a real battlefield implement. The few I have had responded to common match loads the M1A guys use. Mine never delivered bolt gun accuracy, even the PSG. But they sure are cool. Mine would shoot into 2" at 200 meters (2 MOA)
