I see a lot of complete old style collapsibles on Ebay, what's up with the abundance of these?Are these good solid stocks, or are they cheapo rattle traps?

I know the stock that came on my Preban Eagle Arms was a cheapo 3 position that rattled horribly even when locked in place.

Just wondering if these stocks are for real.

Old style isnt comfortable, the new M4 style is very nice.

Both. The first one I got off eBay is great, solid tube (anodized), fairly tight/quiet stock. The second one I got, different vendor, was a complete rattle trap, and the tube(painted) was so cheap it actually broke through the threads while shooting it.

Do you have a vendor on Ebay I could look for one of these stocks? Sounds like you got a nice deal

I'll have to go read through my feedback postings to find it, it was about 8 mos. ago.

For the most part they are cheapos with plastic buffers. I forget who was selling them for $29 Looks like some people stocked up and are selling them on ebay.

Many of them are made in China. My brother in law bought one, absolute junk.

I surf E-Bay regularly and see very few ORIGINAL METAL COLT retractable stocks. Most people that do sell them don't know what they have and don't list them properly. I was able to pick up three this way ($95-$135) and turned two of them for a good profit. There are alot of phony ones out there on E-Bay but the early Colt stocks really stand out if a decent picture is taken. The stock is plastic coated metal with a black gloss finish. I have all three types of the Colt retractable stocks and the older metal ones feel the most solid.
