What sort of collapsible AR stocks are available in the UK ? I can see a zillion for sale in America from $60-200+, and endless air-soft clone parts in the UK, but little or no real AR stocks here.

Also, when you replace a stock is it best to also replace the buffer assembly/action spring/receiver extension ?

How much is a magpull Stock, RRP? say $ 225

So that converts to £ 225 (using the standard rate of bob exchange)
Then add the BAT (BOB ADDED TAX)

Total should be Between £300 - £450

Bobby's bargain of the week!!

And then he'll sell all the fitting kits as spare parts.....

One of the shooters this weekend had a SIR system on his AR, purchased from 'The Beast'.
Don't know how much he paid, or what year he ordered it, but it was avery heavy AR with the Bull barrel as well!

I think he listened to the 'multiple' advice to make the barrel go on a weight loss programme!

You cannot go wrong, as a first step, with any of the standard collaspable stocks that are made by the major manufacturers. You can always sell it later if you want to upgrade a VLTOR / SOCCOM or MAGPUL.

There was a guy at Sennybridge the other week with one that looked just like it in 6.8SPC. One of Bobs with the same rail system. He was using homeloads though.
