folks, working on another AR and trying to get a nice quality stock.  I really like the look of the CAA CBS stock but wanted to know if its a good quality or is it going to shatter if struck.  here are my choices, please comment only if you own or have used for an extended time.

1. CAA CBS
2. VLTOR Imod
3. Magpul CTR
4. VLTOR Emod

I have been running one on my carbine for a while.  I would rate it as a good cheap stock and a so-so stock if money is no object.  It is made for a commercial receiver extension tube, not a milspec tube, and even with the commercial tube, there is a good deal of rattle.  If you are going to compete or go to multiple training classes, you might want to consider something else.  For a casual shooter, I think it is OK mightyfine.

I you plan to use your gun hard and money is an issue, I would suggest this stock..  If you don't already have a receiver extension tube, I recommend this one.

well, i did find CAA was milspec also, not just comm, but i need this to handle the desert as well as any class I go to, guess I'll go ahead and remove the CBS from the list. last thing i need is a shitty stock when SHTF

Desert, as in deployment? Lots of units are issuing LMT SOPMOD stocks. Its hard to do better, especially when it's free. Even if that's not the case, your basic issue Colt will be better than CAA. Also check out the Magpul MOE instead of the CTR, basically the same stock minus the friction lock and the QD swivel mount, for half the cash.

It's called marketing. Supply and Demand.


PS you make an adustable stock tough enough, the buffer tube becomes the weak link - which it is and has been reported when abused in the field. Milspec is not SHTF proof, but it's a good guideline for reasonable combat use. There has to be some give and take, users have to consider treating their gear responsibly. Optics break, magazines get bent, weapons fail, there is no guarantee of being SHTF proof.
