Thanks for the review. Mine should be here in a day or so!

Awesome write-up. It's nice to see different pictures of the stocks, especially with human contact. Was the rifle stock easy to install? Were any other parts needed? By the way, you might want to tell your buddy that front spoiler of the Range Rover is about to fall off. [:)] LS

If you hold the rifle properly, you'll find followups to be even faster.[flame]

So you've got a rifle with a $200+ light ass'y, $200+ sight system, BUIS, and a high speed stock, but the ground is too wet!? I made fire last night with a hand drill caveman style and that's the best you've got!?

Lumpy, Let us know if it goes on an Eagle receiver extension. Mark
Link Posted: 3/16/2003 12:27:23 PM EDT
That was my sole complaint with my pre-ban Eagle carbine. It had an aluminum stock on it that was a sharp edged rattle trap. It got replaced back in the mid 90's with a Colt buffer tube and stock. Sorry, wont be able to evaluate that. My [b]GUESS[/b] would be that the stock should fit it, because at the time the nifty RRA and Bushmaster 6 position tubes that arent mil-spec didnt exist. Once again though, just a guess on the Eagle tube being mil-spec or close to.

I was curious on the difference anyway? I think I heard that the Colt's might be a tad smaller. Once people start getting those stocks, I'm sure they'll post any issues. Thanks Mark

Duffy, Im getting ready to put together another carbine upper with a TA31 on it. I go back and forth everytime deciding between the SIR and the RAS II. Your gun convinces me more and more everytime I see it. [:D]

We're not married yet, shes not living with me, and she LOVES my AR's [:D]...AND she shoots her issue Glock 22 and 870 WELL. We'll see what happens AFTER she gets the ring.

FYI- I talked with a guy at Vltor, according to him, the non-milspec/Colt buffer tubes are larger then the milspec/Colt buffer tubes. I guess the Colt tube measures at 1.150 inches and the aftermarket tubes measure 1.187 inches? LS

Ok, Will it just be a very tight fit, and still work? A friend has a Crane stock on his Bushy, it's tight, but still slides with a little help. Mark

Actually about 10 feet back and to their right there is a table and a few chairs. I know, I was shooting off that table earlier today.... And he still hasn't fixed the spoiler on the Range Rover. Jonathan

EXCELLENT Only had one complaint...that 1" sling swivel really needs to be replaced with at 1 1/4". My Giles 3point used to be on a GG&G sling thing on the stock. I just took the 1" adaptor strap from another Giles carbine sling and ran it through the 1" QD swivel and left it loose so the sling moves freely like it should. Works great. Other than that, its GREAT. Rattle free in the stock and the latch. The accessories bolt on TIGHT. [img]http://photos.ar15.com/WS_Content/ImageGallery/IG_LoadImage.asp?iImageUnq=9313[/img]

Is the Vltor stock as long as the new colt stock or the Crane stock? Can it take the punishment of M203?
Link Posted: 4/12/2003 2:36:42 PM EDT
Yes and Yes Its as well made and durable as any stock in production.

I just discovered something cool with the Vltor stock. Im running a Giles single point sling on the GG&G adaptor. By installing a Knights 1 1/4" swivel on the stock and running the single point sling through that as well as the sling plate, I still have all the advantages of the single point (no forward portion in the way of controls, less sling near the buttstock), but with some improvements. Its more stable when moving, it stays out of the way when placed behind the back or swung to the offside to clear for a handgun transition. One more reason to like this stock for me.

I noticed the "colt/military" style extension will only work with this, would it work with a Bushmaster one??
Link Posted: 6/15/2003 12:09:59 PM EDT
Does the push button swivel work in any of the Knights push button swivel mounts? Are they interchangeable?

Yes, they are interchangeable... Any Uncle Mike's 1" or 1 1/4" QD swivel will work in either product(s). Hope this helps, havoc

Anybody know when the new A1 length rifle stock will be available? Short arms, manboobs, and heavy coats make A2 stocks kinda long for me...
Link Posted: 6/29/2003 7:56:57 PM EDT
Update - I fired off an email to Vltor Saturday AM, and they replied last night. An A1 length stock is already out, in clubfoot only. A1 on a rifle tube, and A1 or A1 + 1" on a tele tube. He said they're available now - I'll try ordering one this week.

Cool, try to get some pics.. ls
Link Posted: 7/4/2003 9:12:15 PM EDT
Okay, for the unitiated...what's the difference between a "mil spec" receiver extension, and an aftermarket one? I guess if I want to put one of these on a post ban rifle, I need a new buffer tube? Not a complete disaster, since I have a built lower minus the tube...so I just have to order a mil spec/colt one. Are you guys gonna get any in?
Link Posted: 7/4/2003 9:30:45 PM EDT
Link Posted: 7/4/2003 11:35:42 PM EDT
Just checked your website and couldn't find any mention of the Colt-spec receiver extensions (I have a pre-ban PWA lower). Would you have a package price for a collapsible standard Modstock kit and carbine-length receiver extension?
Link Posted: 7/6/2003 10:03:40 PM EDT
Lumpy, why did you change to the Knight's swivel over the one included with the Vltor- Was it too small? (I forget the size of the Uncle Mike's it comes with).
Link Posted: 7/9/2003 12:58:54 PM EDT
Lumpy196 what a good idea as soon I got my stock I did what you did running the single point sling through the swivel. I like it. Now it is a two point sling, or not. Richard

Does this mean I can send the 1" back that I bought from you this past Saturday and trade it for a 1-1/4"? By the way... Great customer service at Coal Creek. I call them ahead of time and they came in an opened up on a Saturday morning just for me! bcr308
