I heard the A1 stock was made out of a less durable material than the A2. Is this true. If the A1 fits more people, why the change to the A2 length?

orignial a1 stocks are less durable... but i have a cavalry arms a1 stock and it works well... i'm going to be replacing it with a better one but it gets the job done for now...

as for the change to a2... its a bogus study... when in BT so many soldiers wished the weapon had a shorter stock... i find myself much more comfortable with an a1 stock...

Recently changed to C1 stock and I can shoot the rifle much more comfortably now. When I shoulder the rifle my nose naturally sits right next to charging handle. This was not possible when I had the A2. I had to move my head / neck assembly closer to the charging handle intentionally.

As a short person, I love the A1/C1. Having a C1 on my ARs has also made the ladies of small stature enjoy shooting the rifle more than their initial experience with "box stock" A2s that they have tried previously.

I've read that the Marines had a lot of input on the A2, and that they wanted a stock that was better suited for shooting prone, and thus the story of the A2 stock, but I may be wrong, I read this on AR15.com, there's a bunch of Know-it-alls there.
