aka the Entry stock from RRA. i'm thinking of getting one for my AR, and am just wondering if theres any real difference between BM stubby stock, and RRA entry stock. i think theyre the same size and all, and i'm pretty sure quality is comperable. so should i just go with the less expensive one?

and a n00b question to go with it...

How do i get the A2 stock thats on there now, off?

thanks a lot guys, you rock.

I've been looking at the stock from rock river arms. I have tried it and I liked it, especially when I am wearing heavy clothing. I have a question as well and I am hoping that someone can answer it too. I have an armalite ar-15 with the green stock, will the green tactical stock match the green on my armalite. I dont want it to look bad if I get it and the colors dont look right

The new stubby stock will come with a new receiver extension (tube), buffer, and recoil spring. To remove the current stock, point the muzzle straight down, the remove the upper butt stock screw. When you pull up on the butt stock, the rear takedown pin's spring and detent is retained in the receiver by the front ejection side of the butt stock. To install the shorter receiver extension, you use a wrench on the butt stock end of the receiver extension, but only slightly loosen the tube, then reach into the receiver and hold the buffer retaining pin and spring from flying out. The end of the tube holds the pin/spring is place. To install the shorter butt stock, just work backwards, remembering to re-install the buffer and take down detent pins.

yeah i'm pretty short. so a nose / charging handle weld isnt so easy, but i figure with a stock 3" shorter it should be much more comfortable..

The RRA Entry and the Bushmaster Stubby are the same stock.
