6, simply because it allows me to set the stock closer to what may be an optimal position.
Ultimately it doesnt matter. I'm a pretty "average" fella and havent found a stock that doesnt work for me as long as its a modern stock. Some of the old C&R stuff is a bit.....odd......and leaves something to be desired though.

6pos.. because 6 is better than 4.

My 4 works for me.

I want one that goes to eleven.

I had a 4-position, and made it a 3.

Fully extended for A1 length, one notch in for heavy winter clothing or so my buddys' wives and kids can shoot it, and fully collapsed.

LOL!

They do have 7 position stocks now.

Hang in there.

But ther eis no real difference between the two.. I mean fully extended and fully collapsed are the same length as each other right?

Nope.

Well, at least mine aren't.

ETA just measured the two. The six position extends a full 31mm's longer.

I want one that works like a pipe clamp, so it's variable. Literally endless positions!

Ya know, I don't ever remember shooting my CAR-15 (2 positions: open and closed) and thinking "God this stock is too damn long" and I got it when I was about 14.

mine have 2 positions I have never had a reason to want anything else.

BUT question for you guys, doesn't your cheek/firing position change when changing positions on stocks and wouldn't that effect your shots?

I shoot with it in the third (of four) positions. I'm a big guy but it just feels better to me.

I also like to store it for transport in as small a package as possible.

4 or 6 is really doesn't matter at the end of the day, Just dont use it is past the first position, or you will look like a goof

Look at the quick release for a Razor scooter handlebar-this would do the job just fine!
