Springfield shows off their popular M1A SOCOM rifle with a 6-position collapsible VLTOR M1A stock chassis system. The Flat Dark Earth color suggests its rugged ability to withstand the harshest environments and the billet T6 aluminum construction gives the rifle a rigid platform to mount accessories like the SureFire M900 vertical foregrip and weapon light seen in these pictures. The M1913 rails are positioned at 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock with the top rail being positioned to ideally accept optical sights and scopes.

    I have the stock but different color I love my stock on my rifle I have one problem with it not long after I got it I ended with a cracked stock it isn’t getting any longer but its still there still wondering if it could be warrantied or do I need to order a new one! one awesome shooting rifle and the person I got it from still till this day is sure it’s a close quarter weapon when you have a 308 caliber rifle that weighs 10 pounds it surely wasn’t designed to be a entry rifle!

    The problem with this design is that Expansion and Contraction rate between Fiberglass and Aluminum is drastically different. SO you get a Thermostat effect. One part expands more than the other causing part or all of the stock system to warp. This effects the relationship between the Optic and barrel and causes your point of impact to shift in comparison to where you had it sited in before. So if was cold and the barrel was cold it will move when it warms up and your shots will be off after it warms up. If it was warm it will move when it gets cold and your first few shots at least will be off.

    Either way Opening day, or Combat are not appropriate places to be trying to figure out where it is going to shoot today! No time to practice or readjust your scope.

    I think we have established that it is vltor… but if your life depends on it.. fiberglass or alumunim… make the call.

    This post has now been corrected. Thanks Guys! Keep up the good work!

    You guys are absolutely correct. Great catch here. That is a VLTOR stock and not a Troy chassis. We’ll try and get that corrected as soon as we can! Check out our other pages and let is know what’s right, what’s wrong, what you like, and what you don’t. We appreciate your feedback!

    The picture shown is an M1a Socom 2 on a Veltor Modstock not a troy industries. Troy industries manufactures an aluminum chassis that does not utilize the original socom 2 railings which are also made by Veltor

    Yes it is a VLTOR. I have almost the same set up as pictured, minus the surefire. VLTOR’s stock is lighter than the Troy Industries.

    That’s not a troy industries stock, it’s VLTOR’s stock design.
