Hi guys, this is my first post. I currently have a CMP M1, a CMP M1 carbine, and am negotiating on a CMP '03A3. I've spent a lot of years lusting after an M1A and I'm finally in a position to buy one so I'm asking for reasons you think I should buy either a Standard with walnut or a Scout with walnut. I'm a traditionalist so naturally I lean toward the Standard but I really like the looks of the Scout and I've read a few people who have a Standard saying that they'd go with a Scout if they had it all to do over. I'll be using it for punching holes in paper and some steel target shooting. What I'm looking for isn't so much your recommendation but more of why you bought whichever of the two that you own. I'm only interested in these two models so please respond only if you own one of them. Thanks in advance.
