Rainy day project.

Post by flcracker » Sun Jun 02, 2013 4:14 pm

Darn this rain. I can't cut up branches, mow, or do any other outside chores while the wife works. I guess putting a Sage EBR chassis on my M14 is a reasonable way to pass the time.

Looks good!
How much did that lighten it up? And is the balance still as good?

Thanks! It's actually heavier than a USGI stock. As-shown, the unloaded weight is right at 14 lbs. The weight in the stock is more to the rear due to the steel in the buttstock extension rods, so it does help to balance out the weight of the medium-weight barrel.
