    From a practical point of view I would just say get a ar10 to trick out these days.

    Of course, sometimes you just want what you want regardless so don't take that as me knocking the idea-just be realistic about what your trying to achieve

    Tell me more. Picked one up and either thinking making it renewed, or suppressing and scoping for a fun gun for around the farm.

    Before throwing $ at it make sure it has a good barrel and shoots ok-some are very worn.

    With the adjustable has they suppress ok.

    A good scope mount like a dsa works but you then can't use the very handy carry handle with most scopes.

    Good rails for the front for bipeds etc are hard to get and expensive.

    They are not that accurate so large magnification is a waste of time I feel.

    Personally I would restore it and it's then a very fun gun that ticks the slr box on your wants list with out trying to turn it into something it's not and potentially being disappointed

    The top 2 pics bang on what I was thinking if not restoring to original. Except with a sleeker fore-end with only the bottom rail.
