    Its generally not a good idea to call what 99% of people use, "mall ninja" shit.

    If you don't like stocks that adjust, that's fine, but don't shit in a thread that is precisely about using a carbine RE and collapsible stock with a rifle gas upper.

    Start your own get off-my-lawn thread about how great fixed stocks are and opine to your heart's content.

    Actually your opinion means jack shit in the bigger scheme of things. There are a valid reason for adjustable stocks and that is the de facto standard for the moment.

    Limited to a fixed minimum length of pull but not maximum. I dont even really get the purpose of collapsible stocks to be honest, I mean theres the argument for cqc and mounted patrols but I never had any problem shortstocking my rifle. So if thats the 'most obvious' difference then it sounds like my assessment was correct.



    You'd love my opinion of aimpoints then.

    I normally don’t like derailing, but please inform us of your opinion. I’m genuinely curious.

    Seeking clarification on this, are you speaking of using the green spring in a carbine RE. The green spring is rifle length, does it fit or did you mean the blue spring?

    I believe he is referring to an A5 not a carbine RE.

    Correction made, I had green on the brain. Blue spring with USGI H3 buffer.

    Then you never tried teaching a class composed of every body type from 5’ 1 1/2” women to 6’8” guys wearing everything from a t-shirt to concealable armor to plate armor. For AR shaped objects we should change the terminology from “collapsible” to saying our stocks identify as “adjustable”.
