I am preparing to buy a Bushy lower to complete my 2nd build and I am going to buy a collapsible stock, I am wondering which stock is a better buy

the armalite for $87
www.armalite.com/sales/specials/newproducts/awbsunsetparts.htm
or

Bushmaster for $100
www.bushmaster.com/shopping/buttstocks/1005-087-8988-pk.asp

all replies are appreciated

Go to EE under New Parts and you will find several vendors selling unmarked RRA 6 pos stocks for about $75 or so. Some include the wrench.

The Armalite and Bushmaster stocks you have shown are the exact same if my info is correct. The only difference is that the Bushmaster one has a snake stamped on it. I have the Bushy one and its awesome.

They should be all the same stock. You will not be disappointed with the ones that are for sale in the EE.

Am I really going to need the damned wrench? I have a stock on the way.

It's a heckuva lot easier with the wrench IMHO. You could always jury-rig something, though.

Hopefully I won't bugger it. I thought an adjustable wrench of some kind would do it.

Has anyone installed the stock without the "required" stock wrench? What did you use?

Do yourself a favor (and in the process save yourself some money) by buying either a Colt, LMT, or Vltor Extension (Buffer) tube/Stock setup.

This way you will be able to try/use and enjoy all the above stocks (and probably future buttstocks as well).

Bushmaster extension tubes are not even come close to MIL Spec dimensions (too big); hence all the aforementioned stocks above WILL NOT FIT onto a Bushmaster Extension Tube!

I used a strap wrench from Sears. The problem is you really can't get it tight enough, so it comes loose after a few hundred rounds. After you have the castle nut tightened with a strap wrench, you could use a punch to snug it down.
