Am I the only one who would rather use an A2 on a 16" rifle? I have a few ARs with M4 and CAR stocks but I find the A2 on a 16" feels well balanced. Anyone else out there?

I use A2 stocks on every AR I own, 18, 20 and 22 inch barrels. Charles.

I am in no way denying the utility and function of the collapsables out there but I just love the feel of my A4gery... If I was a routine door kicker room clearer etc, i'd choose the m4 or any of the other available stocks out there...

I have an A1 stock on every AR-15 I own.

A2 isn't bad, but a bit uncomfortable to me.

But I'd take the A1 or A2 over any collapsible.

when i bought my bushmaster xm15 it had a collapsible stock on it and i liked it. a friend recently gave me an A2 has a gift and i just put it on the other day. i like it so far but i wouldnt say that one is better than the other. use what you like the best.

To me the A2 is too light for a rifle with a lot of crap on the front the collpsable even more so. The collapsable has a metal and inconsistant cheek weld. Both stocks have the potential for wobble in some way, the collapsable being worse. The A2 is too long for CQB stance shooting. The Magpul stocks solve all these problems.

I've got a couple M4 type, A2 and MagPul. While the MagPul is likely superior to the rest, I like my A2 standard set up.
Like the saying goes: I started w/ a 20" A2. $5000 dollars later I have a 20" A2.

+1 for Magpul. I held out on getting one for a long time. For a collaspable stock nothing is more comfortable.

I really like collapsibles, but if I had to choose a fixed stock, it would be an A2. I've never liked the A1 much for some reason.

I like the A1, but it feels kinda cheap. I'm looking at the sully stock, but not sure i want it... A2 is too long unless your shooting on a KD range in nothing but your camouflage, magazine pouch and canteen. The second even an inch of gear goes on (like your LBV), the A2 stock sucks.

If you wore armor, or did clearing on a regular basis, you would want the adjustable stock.


The A1 & A2 are nice for target shooting, but I'm glad I don't carry a full stock anymore.

Those days are behind me and I'm really starting to like the standard A1 and A2 stocks again.

Bring back the A1 buttstock and pistol grip!

I use the M4 stock on my 16" but I prefer the A2 stock, I still use it on my 20" but I prefer the solid feel of it over anything else I've shot

The A2 is on my top 5 list. I'd rather have it than a standard collapsible stock.

1) Magpul
2) A1

That's just my two hundredths of a dollar.
