Personally, I like the old style telescoping stocks. I find the sling attachment on the bottom of the new ones dig into my shoulder/upper chest. However, being preban challenged, I went with this one:

I, too, like the old style 2 position stock without the bottom mount. I'm sure many would jump for the 6 position newer one, but that is why they make chocolate and vanilla.

Do the old style collapsible stocks rattle more than the new ones? And how hard is it to remove the sling compared to the new one? I know you can get a rubber pad for the old one. The new one has mounts build into it, so that neat but something I probably won’t use. How comfortable are the collapsible stocks when compared to the fixed stocks <A2 style fixed, not collapsible fixed>?

Only the metal aluminum ones rattle. The fiberite CAR stocks are pretty quite. OT: the alum. ones get real cold when you put your cheek on it in cold weather.

The CAR stocks are okay comfort-wisse, but the full-size ones are the best. BUT you don't get the gee-whiz factor.

Sooo... Pick you poison carefullly.

My preference is the new 6 position. More adjustment and I've long arms i.e. wear only a thin shirt during warm weather and can shorten things up during the the NW winter months when wearing more cover.

B. Definitely. I prefer the new style 6-position stock. It's also supposed to be waaaay more durable than the older type, from what I understand. I'd only use the fixed stock on a postban or a bench gun.

Can anyone measure the length of the new 6 pos. stock in the closed position? My "old-style" measures 6 3/4".

Also, do those with the 6 pos. have any insight into the finish of their stocks? BM and RRA? I ordered one of these about 2 mos. ago. I received it and it was the wrong one (pinned for a post ban) so I sent it back. But, I was actually glad that it was the wrong stock as the stock portion seemed rather cheap looking to me. The "fiberlite???" was shiny and the overmold was not finished flush. Anyone receive a better sample? Thanks.

I think the COLT M4 is the best collapsible stock.
They are better quality than the gunshow junk and they Don't rattle.

I have the RRA 6-position M4 stock. I measure 6-7/16" along the top edge from the receiver to the butt (the stock's butt, not mine) in the closed position. 11-1/4" fully extended. Nothing cheap looking about it. The tube appears to be anodized aluminum and is a bit blacker than my receiver. The moveable part is a high quality plastic. My guess is Zytel because it appears to be made out of the same stuff as the handguards. No rattle at all.
