Waiting to acquire one of those beautiful 1911's from Springfield Armory. Been looking for one to go with the SOCOM 16 I have been "accessorizing".
Okay, here is my SA SOCOM 16. Quite a bit different than the original.
This first picture really shows the changes I've made.
1. Tac-ops adjustable kydex cheek riser. 2. Kley- Zion stripper clip guide picatinny mount replacement. For the Sage EBR system. 3. Aimpoint H1 mounted on an American Defense QD low-mount . Modified to clear the Kley-Zion rail. 4. Removal of the forward heat sink.. oops, I mean "Scout Rail". Replacement of upper handguard. 5. Contour and fitment of a Magpul AFG for M-Lok. 6. Picatinny rail section added to forward sling swivel. For bipod mount in the future, waiting on bipod. 7. Mounted a Streamlight Rail Mount 1 with pressure pad on the port side. opposite of the light. 8. Swapped out the fat Xsight/Trijicon front sight. For a .062 NM front sight for the Scout Squad. 9. Swapped out the toilet seat rear "Ghost Ring" with a standard M1a rear aperture.
This setup is dead nuts accurate. With my 57 year old eyes out to 350 meters. Shoots like a 30-30 and, is as fast, almost, as my Mk 18 was. The biggest thing for me is the caliber. I have a few hog hunts lined up. I believe that this rifle with the mods I've made to it. Will prove pretty effective out hunting pretty much anything in North America, 2 or 4 legged.
Hope this makes someone else drool.

Is that the VUDU scope? How do you like it? I am building an URG-I 14.5” USASOC near clone. Looking for a GREAT variable optic. Toss up between a Nightforce ATACR and the EOtech. Just haven’t had my hands on the VUDU.
RANGE REPORT @Tinman6@Tinman6 Yes, that’s the Vudu 1-6x24. The weapon is a Sig M400 enhanced, and being that Sig just won the Army contract with their Tango 6, that scope was high in the running for me. But, EOTech is really solid, and as you know has fielded many optics, great glass, also the SR1 reticle is in MRAD, and the final feature that made me pull the trigger...With the throw lever, switching from 1 to 6 is like butter compared to the Vortex Razor and Tango. I had it out to the range once already and was impressed with how quickly I could engage various sized targets at varied ranges. This Wednesday I’m going to get prone and supported, then dial it in more at 100M. And then I’ll hopefully have enough time move to the 600 and 800. I’ll try to get pics to post.
Cool clone project btw!
That’s awesome to know that your setup is solid.
