Which is the best design to go with? The Clubfoot or the Standard. This is what it will be going on. Colt leightweight Preban with a Colt M4 16" upper w/ SIR 45M and Aimpoint setup. I just cant decide which to get. I have the Colt current M4 4 position right now. Thanks for the input.


Is the Clubfoot controls easy to operate as the standard? Such as can you pull it out and collapse it fast?


I will sell my Colt M4 for $55.00 shipped. I will take paypal or MO.

Thats for the plastic part only.

I think its a decision based on your shooting style. If you shoot mostly from the bench over sand bags, oor from the prone supported position (i.e., bipod) the Clubfoot may be more to your liking if you support the toe of the stock with your support hand like I tend to do. However, if you shoot mostly from the standing, kneeling, or sitting positions, as in hunting, the Standard stock is all you need. Other than that, its all looks, because they both have the identical cheekpieces. ColdBlue sends...

I like the clubfoot when the rifle is resting on a bag or bipod, in the absence of one on a standard A2 stock I'd grasp the rear sling swivel and the sling.

I prefer the latch on the clubfoot... I find it easy to use, simple and out of the way.

You can ask for the clubfoot latch on your standard stock. that is what I did. I heard theere is only a limited number fo the butterfly latch made for the club foot, if you hurry, you might be able to get it the way you like. [img]http://www.thermaldynamics.com/pictures/guns/m4mre-1.jpg[/img] My M4 are mainly shot from standing or kneeling. I did not feel the need for the Club foot, besides, I like the look of the standard much better. Got to tell you, the cheek weld is awesome. one of the best investment I made on my M4.

Just had a chance to check out the whole line for a review... I have to agree, the hold and feel are super! I was told that the standard is available with the butterfly latch... I picked the clubfoot for the latch and other reasons. Shouldering a rifle with a regular M4 stock now feels just wrong!

DUFFY, Those are called MRE made by KAC. Originally asked for be the Seals I think. Modular rail extension(?) also nicknamed "more real estate". Very nice rifle I must agree!

I'm gonna get an M4 FF MRE RAS from Wes, I'll be eating top ramen for a few weeks but I always get my toys [:d]

I wish I could post a picture. Instead of the MRE I went with the Daniel Defense 9.5FSP. It is a Midlenght tube with a cut out on top for the front sight. I have room for a vert grip, an space for "normal gripping" and enough room to mount my Harris Bi Pod. I put PRI front sight on and it looks like it grew there. It perfectly fills the entire cut out but does not touch the forend. Its a little more subtle than the MRE.

Exactly- On my carbines, my left hand is on the handguard or front vertical grip. No bipod, no need for the clubfoot. I too think the club foot is ugly, but for practicality it would be great in a varmint or SPR type role.

I use a Bipod on my M4 (mounted with an ARMS throwlever) That bi-pod notch isn't absolutely neccassary but the stock holding technique is a must for serious acccuracy work so I would say it can't hurt. I switched from a Aimpoint and M900 to a Bi-pod and ACOG and my groups shrank from 2.5inches to 1/2MOA. (I use a CRANE stock and I found that I could easily adjust elevation by simply sliding my hand forward and backward along the angled surface at the bottom of the stock --- this wouldn't work with a clubfoot)
