I'm getting ready to order a kit for a sixteen incher. Is there any reason for me to order the 6 position buttstock over the 4 position? Pros and cons?

I prefer the 6 as it has more options for a better fit, and it has a larger buttplate and a sling swivel.

The 4 pos unit generally are built like the older CAR style with the smaller buttplate and only an option for a top sling.

Get the 6 if you want a more traditional collapsible, go with the magpul 13 position if you dont.

mainly 6 for better fit.

Seems like six position is the standard.

never checked personally. However I always use mine in the full extended position, so it really doesn't matter to me.

Then there's always the oddball......

My Government Carbine, I modified the buffertube from 2 position, to 5 position.

I simply drilled a center position, halfway between open and closed, then an additonal position, either side of the midway position.

Gives me an adjustment for whatever position I choose.

Maybe a little off topic, but regardless of the number of adjustment options, what is the solution when, for convenience sake (like in the trunk or ready rack), the stock is kept in the compact position and when getting ready to shoot the user needs to extend the stock, BUT not to the last setting? Is there a technique or device that keeps us little short arm guys from ending up with max pull when in a hurry, but not a rush?

TIA.

That's why the Magpul M93 was invented .

Personally I leave my stocks on the 2nd to shortest setting and it works fine & stores compactly. Otherwise you could put a pin in the stock just behind the hole to prevent the stock from sliding any further.

Thanks, that is what I was doing, but wanted to see if there were alternatives. If space were really a real issue with me, I wouldn't be FAT!

Thanks
