SEI SOCOM-16 Gas Plug for SOCOM-16 and M1A Scout Rifles

This newly designed gas plug made by Smith Enterprise Inc is a drop-in replacement for the factory gas plug on the SOCOM-16 rifle and other short barreled M1A models with 16-18" barrels such as the 18" Scout model. This gas plug is hollowed out to provide much greater volume for gas coming into the operating system. This noticeably softens the recoil and lowers wear on operating parts while improving reliability in these short rifles. It also has a new outer design which is both functional and good looking. It is another great way to maximize the performance of your SOCOM 16 or M1A Scout and to customize its look as well. It provides reliable performance in these short barreled rifles either with or without a sound suppressor. This part is made by SEI of 17-4 Stainless Steel which is machined to exacting tolerances and double heat treated for durability under extreme use. It has an extremely durable and good looking Salt Bath Nitride black finish.

This part works well with all M1A gas lock designs such as the Springfield Armory factory gas locks, the SEI SOCOM-16 Threaded Gas Locks or the SEI M1A/M14 Gas Locks.

5 of 5 SEI Gas Plug January 22, 2010
Reviewer: 7.62 NATO Dude from Las Vegas, NV United States  
I put this on my SOCOM II initially because of a random extraction issue, that turned out to be; well...the extractor.  At any rate I am glad I installed it because there is a noticable reduction in felt recoil and the action feels more fluid...less kachunk.  Can't go wrong.  One thing to check though, there was a chalky residue inside the plug that i used a drill bit to remove by hand.  I mentioned that on a forum and a couple other guys chimed in that they found the same thing.  The part itself is worth a couple minutes to remove that media "if" you get one with it inside.
