i feel ya on this purchase bruce... its how i felt about mine. you are still going to have to cough up $250-$300 for the scope mount + rings + bipod adapter + bipodbrucelee said:btw, I'm DEF getting a JAE100 stock for it. I can't wait till its complete!!! Muhahah!
I'll post pics from my gals' camera... She has some crazy DSLR with 21000 megapixles (read: 13mp)... so yeah. Man, I haven't been this stoked in a long ass time! I'm so excited! And I just cant hide it!! I know, I know, I know....
i have the yhm bipod adapter ($30) on another rifle, it works great but is not quick detach. if you want quick detach, check out the larue tactical ($79) model.
ill save you some trouble on the scope mount... here are your options
you are going to want to go with a smith mount (all are steel) or the titanium from sadlak. stay as far away as possible from the springfield gen 3 mounts.
the sadlak titanium is supposed to be nice too, but its not steel.
for rings, i am going with TPS and would recommend them for your gun. i have read tons of good things about them.
if you are going with a jae100 stock, you dont need to worry about the cut through the scope mount to use the irons because you will not be able to see them with the cheek rest on. still, most of the mounts have the cuts as a standard feature.
sorry for the long winded post... i have been doing my research and putting mine together for a while now. let me know if you have any more questions.
