Anyone have a problem with the plastic collapsable stock wearing out quickly or breaking under heavy use---is this a problem with the aluminum ones?

Just got to say, love my Fiberlite 4 position. Have banged it up a bit, but no problems here. Ice

The only difference between the aluminum and the plastic (besides the obvious,) are that aluminum will show more wear and weighs more. Several people have told me this. Ian

I have a Bushmaster fiberite on 3 of my rifles and they, in my opinion, are far superior to the aluminum stocks. There's no rattle, none have come close to wearing out. Though I don't think my use of firearms would be a truly compelling test for your question. I'm not exactly beating the shit out of my guns. Aluminum is old school, can fracture in cold weather and a less comfortable design to shoot, though just slightly. The fiberites are an advance in design and materials, though I'm sure some will argue this.

The alum. will also be cold to your face when shooting in cold weather.

I wonder how many cheeks have frozen to the aluminum stocks in extreme cold....YIKES! Get a name brand fiberite and you won't be disappointed.

I have several of the new "M4" style fiberlite stock that Bushmaster and Gunsmoke sell. The AR that I shoot the most has a 16" barrel and the 4 position stock. I have taken it hiking, camping, and rolled in the dirt with it during various training exercises with no problems or excess wear to date. I would recommend it if you plan on using a 16" or shorter barreled rifle. The Azalin
