$49 bucks is hard to beat

Do they fit well? not loose?

I dont know. That one isnt a Cav or RRA sourced piece though, it is shaped like a Colt stock. I wonder who makes it.

I put a question in the industry section about the stock but I have not gotten and answer.

It looks like a Tapco brand...

for that price, I have a feeling there's something about it that Tapco wouldn't want us to know about

Maybe they don't want you to know that almost all AR15 accessories are vastly overpriced. Telestocks probably have about $5 worth of materials in them.

A shooting buddy of mine has one on his AK, used in conjunction with a stock adaptor. It feels very solid in the adaptor, with no rattle in the stock, and its deffinitely larger than the standard 4 position stock.

It looks identical to the one I bought from Bushmaster for $100 bucks. I think for that price its worth a shot. Wont they let you return it if you are unsatisfied? What is there to lose?

I'll take that as a "you get what you pay for" response.

Don't know about the stock. For just under $20 more, I can get a RRA from ADCO. I'll stick with the RRA.

i bought the $20 green one and it works fine the buffer and spring look weird but i just used my old ones.

This might be a deal at $30. I picked up a number of their cheapo older model telestocks for $25 a pop. They rattle, but they hold up to .458 SOCOM, so I can live with the aesthetics for that price.

That thing loks just like the RRA 6-pos tele-stock I bought at the show weekend before last for $75. I wish I could have a real close look and compare the two. I hope I didn't pay an extra $25 just for the RRA name.

I just got my new TAPCO catalog (bought some FAL stuff) and both the CAR and the M4 stocks are shown in the catalog as "Made in USA", and pt992(r) compliant.

gaspian,

Nothing against TAPCO, but $50(+10 shipping)for an "unknown deal" may not be worth it. I bought 3 stocks from RBPRECISION
. They are $74 inc shipping and they include the tactical wrench also. I only needed one tactical wrench, so they lowered the price some. When you figure in shipping and the cost of the wrench it's only about 8 or 9 dollars difference.

Tactical wrench? Oh boy....


I'd like to see someone's opinion of this actual stock. We already have enough speculation, and there's plenty of people out there that confuse these with the last batch. According to an email I got from TAPCO themselves, they admit (too strong a word) that the CAR stocks were a mistake, but were quite confident I'd be satisfied with these. I plan to order two when my CC payment clears.
