living in NYS i can't have an adjustable stock so that's out of the question :-(

it seems like most people with a telescoping stock use it in its fully retracted position. i'm getting ready to order a new RRA in a few months. any opinions on whether i should go with the full length stock or the "stubby" stock? i'm a slightly shorter than average individual, and the full stock seems like it might be a bit long on me, but then again the stubby one looks quite short. any input? or should i just GET BOTH and then go through the trouble of selling the one that doesn't fit?

Neither - get the Sully Stock!

It's a little longer than the Stubby stock, and it's shorter than the full-size A2 stock. It even comes with a spacer that can exend the length to ALMOST A1 stock length.

It's my favorite of the fixed stocks and what I was using on my carbine prior to the end of the ban.

16" LW carbine



Edited to add more:
16.5" 'Dissy Type' KISS carbine:


Sully with an A1 and A2 stock for comparison.


Available in Black or OD Green.

FYI the stock is solid, there is no trapdoor.

Try to get an SP1 stock (Cav Arms sells them in this length) or one of the early M-16 stocks without the trapdoor, as they are shorter. You'll need to get the shorter screw to go with it.

Or what Forest said!

if the a2 feels long, get a shorter one. if wearing body armor and lbv or pack, the stubby. if no gear the sully.

I don't know how anyone shoots their's all the way short, unless they got gear on. I'm not a large guy and all the way forward makes my arms feel like a retard. If you ask me, your arm is pretty vertical, then your hand has to go almost 90 degrees from there. It's too close. I think the A1 stock is the perfect length stock. But I don't wear kevlar / tac vest or anything like that.

They shoot with a more squared off (fighting) stance. The Sully is like my 6 pos telestock on #2 or #3 (with #1 being all the way closed).

If you shoot with a target stance then the A1 is a good choice (so use the spacer that comes with the Sully stock ).
