It might be time for a new arf. Id like to get one this winter to start using for high power service rifle competition but this afternoon it became obvious the older (shorter) style A1 but stock is probably going to be necessary.

I remember hearing that this length of stock is available new with the A2 style butt plate.

Am I dreaming or have some of you heard the same.

Thanks

Best regards, J

Since we are on the topic of A1 stocks, does anyone know if an A1 stock will fit on an A2 buffer tube? Is that what that spacer donut that goes inside an A2 stock does?

Yes, it fits.Remove the spacer and get a shorter screw.

Note that they come with a very non standard buttplate, that uses a rubber, flap hinge, type trap door. A true M16A1 stock, or even better a recent production Colt made C7 stock is a much nicer stock than the Cav Arms A1.

Are you saying that the C7s don't use the longer A2 stock? Hmmmm. May have to take a trip up to Canada on my vacation[:D]

Or if you don't have a shorter screw, get a carbine length buffer. This shorter buffer will work fine as long as you use the standard length spring with it. A regular length buffer without the shorter screw will not have enough clearance to come back far enough to engage the bolt catch.

For the love of all thats good, don't listen to this man! If you use a carbine length buffer in a standard length buffer tube, the rear of the bolt carrier key will smash into the buffer tube ring on your lower reciever and eventually destroy your lower. The plastic nub on the bottom of the buffer is supposet to contact the bottom of the buffer. A1 length butstock screws are easy to come by and if necessary, an A2 length buttstock screw can be ground down to A1 length.
