I have already read the tacked thread, and damn near every post on stocks for the last 3 years. Keep that in mind b4 you start yelling about "read the tack"

Thank you.

Now that I have that out of the way.

I currently have an A2 stock and would like to get a tele-stock but don't know which one would work with MY shooting style. I DO NOT shoot "nose to charging handle". I shoot FAR away from the back sight. My cheek weld is on the BACK 4.5 inches of stock.... not the front.

At first I was thinking about the Magpul, but then I remember reading somewhere about it not being a good choice if your cheek weld is far back. When most people review telestocks, they talk about the cheek weld... when using N2CH, not the other way. So, all in all, i am pretty confused.

Please help me out guys.

Thanks

If you are not N-C-H, then maybe you might be wasting your money getting a collapsable. Maybe a fixed stock like an VLTOR A1 Modstock or a Sully stock may better suit your needs. I had a Crane clone collapsable on my SPR clone and it never moved from the one position it was always in, and that position was the same as the VLTOR A1 Modstock, so I switched to the A1 Modstock. Just a different point of view to think about.

I shoot exactly like you... I rest my cheek on the stock, not the tube. Granted, I have NOT handled the Magpul or VLTOR etc... But I have found the stock that I'm perfectly happy with. It's the Rock River Arms "unmarked" 6-position telestock from Legal Transfers (Pete in NH) on the EE.

The stock is rock-solid with NO wobble, and since I don't do NTCH, I don't get my whiskers caught in the stock/tube.

As a bonus, the last position on the stock is actually a bit LONGER than the A2 stock for those of us who like to "get back".

For the mere $75 cost, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Have the Magpul on a personal rifle.

Work with a M4 Stock daily.

The whole "Nose to the handle" thing is ridiculous and nothing but an overgeneralization.

the Magpul stock is worlds more comfy than any of the other tele stocks I have tried including the VLTOR, and MUCH more robust.

My vote on the matter anyhow.

S-28, you made my mind up for me. I'm debating between the VLTOR and the M-93. I just need a good price now ala group buy.

Where is the best price on the magpul ?

I love my VLTOR.
I like the LMT Crane alot as well.
The Magpul is nice and damn sturdy..Asthetically, I just don't really like the
"RoboCop's Leg." look

There's also nothing wrong with a sturdy M4 enhanced 6 POS.

Shoot with my nose back, too.
RRA 6-pos works very, very well for me.

Bravo Company...I got one of the DET 1 stocks from them. It is the M93 instead of the newer M93A, but it doesn't matter to me; it satisfies all my needs. It was $165 instead of the usual $225 or so. It also came with a FREE CAR spring and H Buffer. Not a bad deal in my book especially considering that it was in MUCH better shape than I had expected-looks like it had been used in a few 3-Gun matches or a carbine course somewhere. Plus, Paul is a great guy to deal with.
