I'm in the middle on my A4 type build. I'm up in the air over the choice of stocks.  The front of the gun is a Colt 20" A2 profile barrel with a Knights RAS M5 rail.  I'm looking for a collapsible stock that will balance well with the rifle barrel.  I've used A1 stocks on other builds and liked them, but I'd like to try something different.  Any advice and/or pictures?

You might try the ACE M4 SOCOM LONG.  It uses the rifle length buffer and spring and still offers 4 or 5 positions of adjustment.  Just make sure you get the correct one; the make two.  Short which uses CAR buffer and spring and long which uses rifle buffer and spring.
Here is one on my LR-308 in .500 Phantom with a 16 inch barrel.  That is a heavy barrel on there and the stock balances it out pretty well.

I had an A2 stock on my A4gery and decided to upgrade to the Vltor A5 kit based on the reviews I read, plus they claim its the next natural progression of the A4 It balances really nice, I haven't made it to the range yet to try it out yet tho

here's a crappy phone pic:

yeah apparently (i did say apparently so mind you it is most likely just a rumor), the marines are looking at Vltors to make the M16A5...

A UBR would be nice.

Is the A5 that much better of a stock than the ACS or the EMOD or IMOD?  If it is, I have no problem spending the money, but I'm not really committed to building an exact clone of the A4 or A5.
