    how stable is the stock on the m1a1? i remember examining one a long time ago and it didn't seem very positive, although i think they are great looking and probably very fun to shoot.

    Hi Bill,
    Great to to go out and shoot with your boy and friends!

    I never saw a M1A1 carbine with bayonet lug!? Is this a later add on or an optional in WW2 or later?

    Cheers,
    Emile

    The stock is very stable, 10" metal plates were no problem to hit at 125 yards...BILL
