Short answer:
The CAR stocks lock in 4 positions and are a bit smaller with a few other differences.
M4 type stocks usually lock in 6 positions and are larger.

Traditionally this is true, with the caveat that the original CAR stocks were 2 position and current production CAR stocks come with the same 6 position tube as the M4 stocks.

The AR in the site logo sports an M4 type stock.

Well some of us don't have to hide our surf habits at work and do it from home. Thus we use the "real" AR15.com entry.

technically not true, the M-4 I had issued to me in 2001 had the old CAR 4 position stock on it.
