Hey Guys,
I have a newly acquired Colt MT6400C M4gery with the faux collapsible stock. I'd like to switch it out for either an A1 stock, or some other kind of fake folding number. I'm having a really hard time getting a consistent cheek weld with the "stock" stock, hence the need for a switch. I have absolutely no idea what's involved, so here are my questions:

1) Is the "fake" plastic part of the stock removable, without having to take off the buffer tube?
2) Can I install an A1 or A2 stock on the existing buffer tube, or does that need to be replaced as well?
3) if the buffer tube needs to be replaced, what special tools will I need to do it right?
4) What would you recommend as a replacement? I don't need something I can hang alot of hee-haw's off of, just a sturdy stock with a good cheek weld, for range and home defense duty.

Thanks alot!

My two suggestion, Vltor Mod Stock in A1 length or Cav Arms C5 stock in A1 length.

Yes it is, it is just bolted down from what I can remember.

You will have to replace the buffer tube if you go with an A1 stock.

I use a punch to loosen and tighten the ring, installing the A1 stock, all you need a wrench and a screw driver.

Calvery Arms C5 stock would be your best simple to the point option. is an very nice upgrade with a decent price. I have one on my SPR and I love it.

Thanks Guys, I'll check out Cavalry Arms. Will they have everything I need for this conversion? When I change out the buffer tube, can I keep the factory Colt spring and "H" buffer? Thanks, vanfunk
