After the big build-up, I now have two new "post-sunset" M4geries sitting in the gun safe. Problem is, after a bit of fondling, the novelty is already wearing off . How long will it be before people start switching back to fixed stocks and the price of folders drops through the floor ?

After a few months more ppl will just put whats comfortable on their rifles, but until that time, I'm thinking about getting some folding stocks myself.

I've had a collapsible stock on my carbine for 4 years and have yet to consider it a novelty.

My carbine will stay with my Sully. However I will get a telestock for my son's M4gery so he will be able to adjust the stock as he grows..

Such stocks are just too handy. At the same time, they're too flimsy for accuracy so it completely comes down to what you want to use it for, utility or precision.

I agree that the older 4 position CAR types are too small and flimsy for accuracy shooting, but the newer RRA 6 position has the same size butt and length of pull as a fixed and feels just as solid to me. I plan to get one of the shotgun size hardcases (35" long) and the rifle will just fit in it
if I get the 6 position stock. Otherwise, my current case is 49" long and will only fit in the back if I fold the rear seats down. It's no big deal when just going to the range and back. But if I have
other stuff in the back seats or need to stop at the store on the way, then I don't like the gun case
to be sticking out in plain view where someone might be tempted to break in a steal it.

You obviously have not tried the Vltors, Crane and newer stocks...I have Vltors on mine now and will put them on the new ones I build. They are very sturdy and give an excellent cheek weld. I doubt that I will ever use a full stock again... YMMV
