I got an option to buy a Colt preban 20” A2 upper with FS for a good price. My buddy says he can keep it at his house until after the ban so we are cool. I plan to put a telescoping stock on my lower but I have never seen an AR in this configuration.
(Rifle barrel with a telestock)..
What is the difference in overall length? Is it 4”?


Why don’t they make these?

They look silly(gay) just like a 16" with an A2 buttstock looks silly.

I think they are an excellent idea for use with body armor, LBE, or smaller shooters (girlfriend or wife) who want to shoot the 20". I mean, I plan on having one after the sunset.

This is a pic of the Diemaco C7A2..

A "full sized carbean", as LotBoy calls it!

As GAY as the day is long!

They tend to be front heavy. But still a good idea for body armor, goggles or forward mounted optics.

Call it what you want to, but my 20" has a 4-position stock and I would never go back to an A1/A2 stock. I'm 6'3" and can shoot it with the same east as my 5'4" wife.

Remember the Alamo and God Bless Texas...

I've seen pics of a few from Iraq. Seems to make sense if you are wearing body armor. But it does take some getting used to the look.

Function over fashion, but...

ignore the folks who are worried about making fashion statements with their rifles and set it up however it works best for *you*.

They should be banned.

Or a Frapachino machine! And maybe some Track Lighting!

I like them, and they are very practicle, especially with an ACOG.

I think it's a good idea. Use a solid stock like a Vltor or Magpul, and you're GTG.

To answer the question, The AWB! When that is over, I intend to buy a telescoping stock for my AR10. I have a 20" and a 16". I love the "kit gun" idea.

Now wait a minute. If you use a 16" with a buttstock for awhile you might change your mind.


I agree that -- to me -- a 20" AR with a collapsable looks a little "off" but they do have their uses I suppose since people have them. The H&K 91/93 with a collapsable stock looks a little funny too, but I really like 'em.

Anyone that tells you to set up your rifle based on how it looks as opposed to how it feels is officially an idiot and you no longer are required to respect their opinon.

Makes perfect sense to me.

Faux pas!

I dunno, the Knights SR15 looks pretty good to me.

My Super A4gery has a Magpul on it, looks and works great.
