I did a search with no luck. If anyone has a picture of a mid length with an A2 stock, could you post it please?

Thank you.

Go through this thread - Lets See Those Midlengths!!!! as I'm sure there are some pics of what you are looking for in there.

That said, take it from me for a midlength, you really want an A1 length stock!


ETA - Here's one with an A2 stock from page 4 of that thread above.


Keep in mind there is only a 5/8" difference in length between the A1 and A2 stock and while these 2 pictures do not demonstrate it well, the A1 fits and looks much better on a middy (but then again, I think the A1 looks and fits batter on a 20" rifle too!)

Looks like I found my AR's twin.



I also agree about the A1 stock. My A2 stock is about 1 inch too big for me. I have short arms, and will be swapping it out for a cheap A1 stock and give that a try.

A1 stock


Man, that is exactly the gun I'm building right now except I'm using an A3 upper (with carry handle). CMMG 16" Med-Con 1:7 barrel, Aero lower and CMMG A1 stock. For anyone interested in the CMMG A1 stock (#BS-A1), get it now because they're discontinuing it. There's a lot of symmetry in a mid-length carbine with A1 stock and military hand guard. Just to look at the picture its screaming 'Rifle' - you lose the scale. I can't wait to get all the stuff and throw mine together.

ETA: 'Desert AIP's is actually just like what I'm doing. Seems like a lot of us are thinking along similar lines with the middie.
