About last week someone started a ACE STock modification thread;

www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=118&t=175871

I posted how cool I thought some of them were. Dave over at Knights Armament emailed me and said if you want to see a really cool mod, take a look at this. I wanted to get his permission before I posted it, and I just got it. Man, this is really something else!!! I've no idea how he did it, how hard it is, how easy it is, I just got the picture. And it is really cool!!!

Most of the modification was done on a Band Saw. Since I really like the cheekpieces from the Vltor Stock, but also like the ACE's look as well, I simply removed enough (cutting away a little at a time) from the original Vltor Stock so it replaced the foam tube normally supplied with the ACE Stock. Once I am done experimenting with this, I plan to epoxy the Vltor cheek pieces in place; and then remove the screws and cheek piece tab that now hangs-down below the basic line of the ACE at the small of the stock.

I would absolutely pay for that to retrofit my ARFX's if it was available as a kit. Chris

That simply looks great! IMO Ace looked naked until now. It´s on my wish list but where the hell can I get those Vltor parts...? MN

you would have to buy a vltor stock and then hack off some piece to fit. "some modification required"

Weird looking, but I like! [:)]

I've got to say it looks sharp.

Damn that's cool, Dave! [8D]

Simply awesome! The ACE always seemed kind of bare to me like M4A2 said, but this makes it feel so much more "complete". I would totally buy one.

[wow] I *hate* fixed postban style stocks, but this is the first one I wouldn't mind owning! (Does that mean I have to buy my first postban?) Now you're giving me ideas for some Galils and FAL paras laying around... "The Coldblue Mod"

DAMN, I didnt even think about that! [:D] hmmmm....and I just so happen to have a Galil laying around.

NICE MOD!!! I just checked my ZM to see if I could get it to work, but it won't. Damn. The VLTOR would hit the charging handle & receiver when stowed... Really nice mod though!
