me, i would get one of the origional style folding stocks at the local gun show. they run about $40.00-50.00, they are plenty strong but don't look as "cool" as the new "Robo cop" models.



don't spend more than 50.00 for one of these.
bushmaster sells them for $100.00.

6 pos RRA is the best one for the buck.


It is super cheap at ADCO right now.

Get the RRA, unmarked, 6 position enhanced M4 stock from Eagle firearms.

They have it on sale for $64, and are a GREAT company.




Be real careful with some of these stocks.... the "cheap" ones you find for $50 or less are often these "made in china" ones like Tapco carries, and they are utter crap. Ask me how I know.

I'm with him. I ordered one from Eagle Firearms. Got it within a week. Can't wait to get that puppy on. I want to 'un-neuter' my black rifle!

Well, because I bought one, of course! The spring is substandard (gets short with minimal use) the buffer is also cheaper - has a less durable finish. And worst of all, the ring that locks it into the receiver is not to spec, rubs the threads... and damages the threads on the buffer tube as you tighten the CAR nut to get it attached to the receiver.

I suppose the old saying will never die...You get what you pay for!

I was hoping for something more graphic, like the stock of the afore mentioned, el' cheapo, shattered in the shoulder pad region while bumping, and the recoil of 30 good hot handloads sent the jagged edge deep into the upper pectorial time and time again causing massiave internal/external bleeding and.....

Okay, I'll stop now...


J/k of course. ~Crpdeth
