Like many other AR owners and users, I prefer the more compact dimensions of the A1 stock and wish it had the durability and solid feel of the A2.

From what I have read here, (most recently this thread: http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=118&t=331602 )

you have the following options:

1. Use A1 stock with stronger A2 buttplate assy.

2. Try to find a Colt CS stock (A1 length made out of A2 material-best but most expensive option).

3. Get a CavArms C1 stock (A1 size but not as nice as a Colt CS. Much cheaper.)

Would it be possible to shorten a GI A2 stock (i.e. cut the appropriate amount off the buttplate end) and reattach the A2 buttplate? Last year I sold a couple of dozen A2 stocks. I have a few left but they are packed away so I can’t examine one to answer this question myself. I assume it can’t be easily done, otherwise everybody would be doing it. Any thoughts? Thanks.

No...

The stock is not cutt-able and you would not have a buttplate that fits....

I'd think you'd have to chop off the receiver side of the stock, no?
The real trick, then, would be reshaping that little dot at the bottom that keeps the stock from rotating.

CavArms has a lifetime warranty.

I just use a 6 position CAA stock on the fifth notch. Presto, A1 length.

Ummm. I believe he's referring to rifle type stocks, not collapsibles.

I believe that to make it go on an A1 buttstock all you have to do is remove the A2 stock body and slide the A1 stock body over the tube. A2 Have a spacer in them to make up the space difference.

You may have to find a shorter screw though to replace the A2 stock screw.
