For my next rifle I was thinking seriously about the RRA Ace Stocks.

My question is which one should I get? I like that the shorty will keep the crabine very short and in my eyes this is also the best looking option. However, since this is non adjustable, will I be very uncomfortable shooting the short option?

If you have pics/experiences that would be great.

I recently purchased the entry model. It is perfect when I have my vest or even a heavy coat on. It's not at all uncomfortable to use without a vest, either. I use an Eotech mounted on Surefire rails and I have no problems at all.

No to mention, that little stock is tough!

Just my .02

The entry(short) A2 style stock? or the skeleton stock ARFX or ARFXE?

Freind bought a RRA carbine during the ban. He had the standard Ace stock on it. I liked it and would use one if I were building a varmint rifle.

i have both the entry and a1 length. after using the entry, the longer seems uncomfortable even on my target rifle. im 74" and have long arms. you can always add the 1" pad if its too short for your tastes.

beutiful, thats what I was looking for. Any more pics are still apreciated. Trying to get an idea of how to put this one together.

I've got the shorty stock on my A4 and like it. And most of my shooting is not done with heavy clothing and never with any kind of body armor.

I had a ACE Entry and sold it recently. While it did look nice and appeared durable I hated the length of pull. It was just too cramped for ME. Perhaps if I made my arms shorter I would have liked it better. I tried to keep it by adding a 1" spacer to it but it was still uncomfortable for me. I replaced it with a M93B and couldn't be happier.

I liked the full length one. I'm getting ready to build another with the same type of Ace stock

7 1/4" seems about right. I think my tele carbine stocks sets about 8 1/2.
Link Posted: 10/28/2006 1:42:40 PM EST
Why not use the Socom? Very strong stock, and it's collapsible.

I use it fully extended, and i'm an avg. size guy. 6'0 190.

those #s are no pad. add 1/2" or 1" for recoil pad.

I have a tele stock on one of my rifles. I want to build a new one andwas thinking these would fit the bill.

Thats perfect then 7 1/4" turns to either 7 3/4" or 8 1/4" !

i had heard that they were super strong. my buddy got one. i borrowed his lower and used it with my .50 beowulf. stock in closed position, locked up. the front of the tube indent mushroomed up and locked the stock in place. took a lot of force to free it. dont trust it now. want to try a magpul 93b or ubr.

Which stock are you refering to that bent? The Carbine telescoping stock or the ACE Skeleton. If the adjustable, which manufacture?
Link Posted: 10/28/2006 2:28:42 PM EST
how about a SOCOM

I want a Fixed Stock for this build.
Link Posted: 10/29/2006 4:47:45 AM EST
Love my SOCOM as well. However, mine has become a bit ratty & hard to adjust with use. The locking channels in the top of the tube have become chewed up by the set screws, making the stock a bit hard to pull back. I don't often adjust mine, so it isn't too much of a problem. As to the skeleton stock, I definitely like the longer one better, but I am tall and have long arms.

I got this one off of the EE. It came with buffer and spring and was a snap to install. I like it much more than the factory stock. It makes the front end a little heavy but it is much more comfortable than the stock unit.
This is my predator rifle. It is a n Olympic Arms K16 and it shoots like a dream and is very accurate. I have an Armalite 1 piece scope mount on the way and that should finish off the rifle nicely.



Hope this helps

I get a great cheek weld with the standard length.

ARRRRRGH I actually realy like both of the last two rifles. Now Im going to have to get both!!

Trashcan how long is that bull barrel?

edit: Have you ever put a bipod on it? Would it be appropriate?
Link Posted: 10/29/2006 6:04:18 PM EST
[Last Edit: 10/29/2006 6:06:02 PM EST by trashcan2506]
fourtyfive4life, the barrel is a 16" bull barrel. I don't know about the bipod question because the shooting I do with it is pretty rapid in dense West Texas brush country so a bipod is just extra weight. I switched the single rail gas block for a four rail, swapped the trigger guard for a RRA winter trigger guard, got a trigger job done, and added a Daniel Defense sling mount for carrying to and from stands. The rifle itself shoots like a dream and at the 800 rd. count I still can't figure out why people still bash Olympic Arms. Great rifle at a good price if you ask me. Here is 5 rounds at 90yds. at the 250 rd count mark with 55gr soft point blue box Black Hills ammo.

Here is a crow I tagged at 124 yds. and yes, I was aiming for the head.

Oly bashers can stick it up the ol' tan track.

well if you buy the entry model and its to short you can always buy the 1" butt pad to gain an extra 1/2". just an idea.
Link Posted: 10/29/2006 9:22:03 PM EST
I purchased the entry one for my 9mm SBR build. I just sold it. I am a short fat guy with short arms and it still was to short for me. I really liked the stock and how it was put together, but it just didn't feel right. Talk about nose to charge handle.

I even bought the Oly verticle grip with the same foam type grip. Down the road I may do a varmit build with the longer one.

Recently I've been on a Magpul kick. I told my buddy that I'd never spend that kind of money on a stock. Oh well. He's the one who told me that he'd never spend over $1K for any gun. Yep, how much did he spend on his supressed SBR? Let's just say a bit more than $1K. This coming from the guy who a little over two years ago had never shot a gun. I'm a bad influence!
