Hey all. Another FNG here with what I'm sure many of you consider some stupid questions. I did a search, and could not come up with what I was looking for.

I am building a pre-ban rifle, which I would like to put a collapsible stock on. I would appreciate it if someone would compare the advantages/disadvantages of the old-style (original) 4-position stock to the newer, ribbed, 6-position stock.

I intend to purchase one of these models from RRA, and also attach a GG&G sling thing. So sling attachment is not a consideration. I am familiar with the VLTOR, and as I am trying to keep weight to a minimum, see no advantages of this design for my purposes.

Thanks in advance.

I much prefer the longer toe on the ribbed style stocks. Much easier for me to lock into my shoulder at the correct height for the sights (Aimpoint in this case) to be at eye level.

The 6-position, ribbed telestock is more versatile and reportedly more durable as well. At least, that was what its designers were going for when they made it to address the shortcomings of the older 4-position stock. At least, that's what [i]SWAT Magazine[/i] says. Hey, I like the ribbed stock.

personally, I prefer the older styled CAR stock. 1) I don't need 6 positions. I shoot it either fully closed when doing cqb drills, 1 notch out when I', target shooting and fully upened when I need it put it on a rack. 2) I like the aluminum version. Just feels more solid.
