    And that would explain why the latch is different and I never even noticed until you mentioned that.

    Dang it now off to see if I can swap the latches out.

Numrich published a letter from a battalion armorer in Iraq who had bought a bunch of the non-trapdoor stocks and installed them on request for persons of smaller stature; he specifically mentioned females and Mexicans. He thanked Numrich for making these stocks available because the A2 stocks, as issued, were almost unusable for the smaller recruits.
    Thatís pretty cool. Makes my clone a bit more correct. My command wouldnít have allowed us to do stuff like that even if it was a benefit.

    Just another FYI, but the doors as well as the latches are different between A1 and A2 trap doors. Can't just change out the latch and be clone correct either.
