    Did a search and surprisingly did not find much relavent data. Looking to replace my stock that came with my parts kit with a better model. Don't know really where to start looking. Need significant adjustability since the wife will be using this gun also. Standard AR MilSpec lower. If it had some kind of recoil pad for her that would be nice and definitely need a place to attach a sling. If this has been discussed to death before and I missed it in my search just put up the link and accept my apologies.

    Thank you

    MagPul CTR, or possibly an ACS or STR.

    Any standard collapsing stock will accomodate shooters ranging from 4'9" to 6'8" (having seen it myself in my unit).

    Bingo.

    I have an ACS on my SBR, and an STR on my 16" mid length. The ACS helps balance our more muzzle heavy guns, or if you simply must have a crapton of storage on your stock. The STR balances out my 16" midlength very nicely.

    In the same price range as the Magpul MOE, take a look at the new B5 SOPMOD Bravo.

    I really like the Rogers Super Stock as well. Magpul makes top notch stuff as posted.

    Not a fan of the Rogers stock adjustment latch, I don't consider it an improvement over the original Colt stock. For your purposes though, it would do fine.

    I have a Magpul MOE, I like it. Lots of choices out there, though. Have fun deciding!

    Also, have your wife shoot the gun before you get a recoil pad. Honestly, recoil from the .223/5.56 is not bad--let her determine if she needs the recoil pad. Happy shooting!

    There are a lot of options out there. Magpul MOE is a popular choice. If you want something with a wide cheek rest, VLTOR is a good option.

    A good point, will be a 300 Blackout so perhaps a little more recoil but certainly not 308 or 300 type.

    Should have also mentioned, I really have no need for storage, usability adjustability durability and weight are far far more important

    Do like the looks of the CTR, any downsides to this? Will be almost never prone shooting 95% will be standing with lots of movement other 5% sitting with support. Unit does look nice and light

    Only if you prefer a flared stock for better cheek weld, or want storage. That's why I run an STR instead of the CTR. Otherwise, not a thing wrong with the CTR.

    I love the Roger super stock and the adjustment latch works fine--at least in the three that I own. I like the Rogers stock better than either the Magpul MOE or the Magpul CTR that I replaced.

    Did your parts kit come with the standard adjustible m4 stock? What is your reason for upgrading it? It's adjustible, durable, light, and has sling attachment points. You can also put a recoil pad on it for 10 bucks or so. Just wondering what kind of problems you were having with it to need to replace it.

    What Plank said.

    The CTR is an original stock with major upgrades.

    The STR adds storage, much like the original Crane stock. I like the STR and ACS but they came out after I bought my CTR and I have not seen the need to change since it's not a duty rifle at the moment. For a duty weapon, i'd get one with storage for some extra batteries.

    Question.

    Am I the only one that prefers a A2 fixed stock to a adjustable one?

    First you will have to determine what size the buffer tube is.

    I really like the Magpul stocks. Those come with a thin rubber recoil pad, but you can put a thicker one on it for about 20 bucks. Those would be available at just about an retailer that sells MP.

    Nope.

    I actually prefer an A2 stock especially with their toe swivel stud so I can use standard M1907 slings.

    They do however look a little out of place on a carbine length gun, and even stupider when you get one of the cut down entry versions that Rock River sells.

    I do feel the need for a short collapsible stock on a HD gun though, just for the sake of compactness.

    I have fixed A2s on my 20" and my 18" right now. Thinking of adding one on my 16" Dissipator as well. The newer Magpul fixed stock looks nice.

    I guess since I started shooting ARs with a COlt M16A2 in the service I just find the A2 stock the most natural fit for me :dunno:

    Can't find a rifle buffer tube online right now so I will have to wait.
