    Not sure if this is the right area, but I didn't see a better one. Anyone here use the EBR system for their M14 or M1A?

    I am considering getting on for my 22" barrel M1A. I have a question though... I don't know which one to get the one which the EBR stock or the one that will accept any M4 type stock...

    Any experiences with these? Anyone? good or bad, I'd liek to hear it before dropping the dough for this system.

    No personal experience with either, but I hear very good things about the Troy system, also.

    I'm not a fan of the concept of the tory system. The continuous rail over the top of the rifle doesn't mesh with me, I want to be able to use the actual Iron sights.

    I have the CQB/EBR M4 stock on my BUSH rifle.
    Lighter and more modular than the DM/EBR stock with sliding stock.

    You can use whatever M4 style stock you wish, the tube it Mil-Spec diameter.
    The stock allows the use of the iron sights and extended optics.
    You will need a adapter that fits in the clip charger guide slot if you want to use regular optics or you can buy and additiona scope mount platform from SAGE or Larue Mfg.
    I use a Magpul CTR stock.

    Tough decision to make. Expensive stock. I plan to eventually buy a socom to put in it.

    That EBR seems to be missed the side rails as well....

    I want a Socom..I like the classic look of the fullsize too much to put it in there.

    They are removable! This owner may have left them off to save a bit of weight/width.

    Worst. Stock. EVERRRRRR!!!

    It's impossible to get a cheek weld on and poorly constructed. Two thumbs down. It looks like this may have been addressed w/ the M4 stock varient.

    I haven't used the JAE, but it looks promising...

    How long did you have yours for? From what I've read, it seems that a lot of people really like this stock and they are able to get a decent cheek weld. Also, how is it poorly constructed? I've shot one once, it had the M4 stock on it, and it seemed top notch.

    It does what it's intended to do, for an actual M14.

    it's also heavy as hell and you generally don't need it.

    See the current issue of SWAT for what I think (as do others) on the M14. As a range beast, leave it in the issue stock. If I went new, I'd go with the JAE, but I wouldn't pay $900 for A STOCK.

    We got issued them just before JRTC, conducted 2 ranges, and most all went away. In theater I later saw one that was full of slop from being put down on the but and probably had a ruckack flopped on it once or twice.

    Very junky piece of gear, IMO, but it looks like... super evil and kewl.

    That's actully the reason it has "evil" in the name... it's all about emotion, not function.

    I don't like it.

    Most all of the M14s are gone anyway.

    I shot a friends M1a in a JAE-100 stock last year.
    That is a VERY, very nice set-up. Ergonomics are outstanding with that stock.
