This looks interesting...
A2 or A1 length fixed stock. No other info available, sorry. I don't even know who makes it yet, but it will be out "soon".

Care to expand on the picture? Who makes it, what's it cost, what type of reciever extension does it use etc.. I will say it looks somewhat interesting.

This looks like a good design for those stuck with fixed stocks. I personally can't stand A1 or A2 stocks but love the SOPMOD.

I wish they would make a version of this that used carbine buffers and springs, though.

Looks good.

Brownells has them in stock, but are out of A1 kits.

Would this A2 kit work minus the spacer? Scrws the same length? Can't find just the A1 screw on brownells?

+1 on this

It seems like such a simple concept...

It would not be possible. How would you secure the stock body to the carbine buffer tube?

UNLESS... someone could make a rifle length buffertube that is blocked off (yet not heavy) so as to use a carbine buffer and spring...

Exactly


If only somebody sold some sort of STOCK SPACER that would allow you to use a car buffer\spring in a rifle tube...

Yeah. A spacer would make recoil stouter and more pronounced. Definitely a good idea .

I mean, rifle length gas and stocks are just way too smooth and controllable for me.

Thought I did. Maybe I missed something.
What I thought was that members were wanting a fixed stock with carbine length buffer/tube. Guess I should read the whole thing.

Yes. When I am using a middy or carbine gas system I don't want a rifle buffer and spring. I want a carbine spring and the ability to adjust the buffer weight for proper function.

Just received mine last night from STAG Arms and I am very pleased. Quality is a great, seems like a very durable polymer and the storage compartment is a nice feature.

I paid 90+shipping for the stock "kit" which included the tube, spring, buffer, screw etc...

Interesting, I might need to pick one up. 90 from Stag direct?

I was directed to STAG by the owner of MAGS when I called about buying a stock.
