And held a synthetic stocked M1A. This is the next rifle I'll want to appropriate after purchasing my M1 Carbine.

The M1A beats the heck out of the M4 "poodle shooter". I am wondering whether, or not, to change the stock out to one of the "bullpup" configuration. I can take the increased recoil of a lighter stock without concern. I figure that a shorter stock couples with a 22" barrel would make for a great "field rifle".

A little advice, or direction, please?

What? What????? Hey just don't go kicking my can around. I gave the Capt. an honest answer to be aware of the report and muzzle blast of any Bullpup stock system. You guys just have to jump all over poor old Tuna. I get no respect just like Rodney didn't. Well just you wait. It's coming and when it does you will know.......So ah what were we talking about???? Was it Shady's eating more Winchester magazines?? Jimb swimming in Lake Erie and then glowing in the dark??? Maybe Cali is
running for dog catch up in the mountains of Virginia???? Naw can't be any of those....can it????

And? The Walleyes like the warm water.
For what it's worth, I prefer wood stocks.
As for the bullpup stocks, to me it is a matter of preference. I refer originality.
