Hello I've been checking out this forum for a few months and finally registered about 15 minutes ago and finally bought my first AR15 about 40 minutes ago.Bushmaster M4/A3 Carbine.I was in the Army for four years,25th Infantry Division Tropic Lightning.Got out in 1991 so It has been a very long time in finally purchasing an AR15!My first official question for the forum is, I want to get an ACE butt stock either the short skeleton stock or the M4 SOCOM stock.Does anyone have any experience with the M4 SOCOM stock? That's the one I'm leaning towards.My friend has the ACE skeleton stock and I like that one a lot too.But tyring to find reviews on the SOCOM.Let me know if anyone has any info.Thank you.

Welcome to the board. As mentioned above, since you've been here a few months, you know the rules. When your weapon arrives at your FFL and you get home, the VERY FIRST THING YOU NEED TO DO BEFORE YOU COME HERE AND POST "LOOK WHAT I GOT TODAY" is TAKE PICTURES! That way you can post pics of your rifle and you won't be violating any rules

Can't help with your question, I too am new here and have not had any expierence with either stock.

Good luck.

Another Leg.

Welcome to Black Rifle Disease!

I hope you saved a few thousand bucks for the ammo you are going to expend?

And then hold onto you home should you ever get the Class III Sickness.

Both are incurable. But who here really wants to get well?

Good to have you. Get some thick skin, the animals have claws. And remember to give as good as you get.

Welcome to the site. Congratulations on your purchase and condolences on contracting BRD.

I have an ACE SOCOM stock and I like it on my 16"; and an ACE skeleton on my varminter. Got the longer versions and not the entry versions. Not much I can tell you other than it's friggn' expensive, supposed to be the strongest collapsible stock currently made. Course the CMT M4 stock is a little lighter and I like them as well. The CMT stock is a little easier/quicker to open or close; seems like I have to hunt for and make a decisive button push on the ACE stock...not that that's a bad thing. It's just that it's a different design feature, I still like it. Buy it complete with the spring and buffer, that way you'll have a start on your spares kit. Bought mine from S and S Parts in LA. if they're still in business, nice fellow. Great dealers here on the Arfcom EE also.
