I have a Mac 10/9.

And want to put an Ace stock on it with a A500 folder Mech, I will use Lage Adapter to fit it to the gun.

But with the stock that come in 7.5, 8.5, or 9.5, the rubber stock extension .5 or 1", the folder Mech, and the adapter.

What is your length from the rear of the gun to you end of the stock and what length stock are you using, and finally are using the 1/2 or 1" rubber pad?

Photos welcome

thanks

Not a MAC10 but here is my M11/9 setup.
7.5" ACE entry stock w/ .5" butt pad, Lage adapter and ACE entry folding mechanism.
I will measure the length from rear of gun to end of stock this evening for you.

Yup, they had 1-2,000 get a bad coating, (Parking?) and the finish would flake off.

They are only getting 1-200 at a time refinished.

Soooooo

gfunk, can you explain to me exactly what is required for your ACE entry stock set up? I had been looking at the lage fixed stock but really like the look the ace entry offers. I also like that you can still use the factory sights. So, does the ace entry have to be set up as a folder or can it be fixed as well? I have looked at the ace and lage websites but can't seem to figure it all out. Thanks in advance. I went pending on my m11 on July 1 so am just starting to shop for accessories.

Well for a folder you need 3 parts.

The adaptor, I got the $85 + $5 shipping from Lage
The folder Mech, look at Midway there are a few, (some that will take and some that will not take buffer tube)
the Stock (there are many different stock lengths to choose from)

If you like the form you can get a collapsible stock, or the entry stock.
I am getting the Ace stock without the buffer tube, in hopes it is a little thinner.


With shipping you are looking at about $175 to $300 depending on what you get and from where...

its 3am and this might not make sense.

For my setup:
Lage adapter, http://www.max-11.com/prod13.htm
ACE folding mechanism, http://riflestocks.com/store/product106.html
Stock, http://riflestocks.com/store/product94.html

The ace mechanism has a little nub (1/16" or so, can be seen on the left half of the mechanism) in between the two screw slots that will need to be dremeled off to mount flush onto the lage stock adapter. Stock sights are not usable w/ my configuration, the reflex site works great though.

For a fixed setup you could maybe use these two parts:
http://riflestocks.com/store/product29.html
http://riflestocks.com/store/product41.html

I think the folder will look better.

thanks for the info guys. the price definitely starts to creep up when you add the folding mechanism as well. I think I will start with the lage fixed stock and see how I like it given the price. Good looking gun you have there though.

Go with the lage adapter and this stock: http://riflestocks.com/store/product3.html
Then add a folder mechanism later if you want to.
