Hi all,

Just installed my new Sully Stock on my older Bushmaster lower (1991 vintage) that was sporting a CAR collapsible.

Question since its been so long that I've had a fixed stock in place.

I've installed everything correctly and even after really going tight on the top screw the stock still has a slight swivel movement. Little less than a 1/8 of an inch play.

Is this normal? The bump on the lower part of the stock slips into the holder on the AR15 lower but still has a little play.

Does a normal A2 move a little as well?

Thanks in advance

It should not move.

It should not move BUT I have had to use a little silicone caulk when installing a DD A2 Burnsed Loop. No movement since then.

I had the same problem. The stock was just a loose around the buffer tube they sent, and there was a little side-to-side play also. A little silicone caulk between the stock and the tube, as well as in the divot on the rear of the receiver where the tit on the stock fits, solved the problem. I shouldn't have had to do that, but after sending the first stock back because it arrived broken I just wanted to get the build done.

On a positive note, the added weight of the solid stock does help balance the rifle nicely.

shouldn't move. i have one and the screw was a bitch to turn. it feels tightened all the way but isn't . i have a dd single point sling with mine which required me to use a longer buttstock screw. this screw needed to be tightened with an allen key which made it easier to apply more torque and prevented stripping

Mine was loose as well, i just shimmed it up w/electrical tape on the nipple, but on a side note for as much as these things cost you shouldn't have to.

I have found the weight to be troublesome. I use lightweight barrels. I found it be a bit out of balance with a correct profile M4 barrel also.

Hey Sully! Any chance of a lighter weight version for pencil barrel users?

I'm considering trying a Sully Stock on my 20" flat top. Right now its sporting a M16A1 stock and its still too long for me.

any advantage to the Sully Stock over the RRA entry stock?

Regarding weight on these stocks... I've seen some mention of weight, exactly how heavy ARE they? Say, in comparison to a standard A2 stock? I've been looking around for shorter fixed stocks and would like as many suggestions as I can get. I'm looking for something that feels like the second click on a collapsible... I've found the Sully, the short ACE, and apparently RRA makes a very short one? I remember handling the "entry" style that Bushmaster mounted up on the pencil barrel carbine they released more than a few years ago and found it TOO short, looking for something in the middle.

So, go with the Sully? Something else? Thanks guys.

Terrific link, thank you. Made me about 99 percent certain I want the Sully stock now!

I put the Sully Stock on my Bushy M4 and really like it. Improvements were in shooting comfort, handling & balance. I brought it to our range and most of the other guys want to add it to their carbines. The small amount of extra weight is noticable at first, but after actually SHOOTING the rifle the balance improvement is obvious.

The rifle has a very solid feel to it with this stock. And my installation has no side play whatsoever. Someone mentioned the buffer screw was tight going in, that's correct, you really gotta keep tightening and then it finally sets.
