    Postak opinions of 4 position m-4 stocks ??

    i'm looking at a m-4 kit that has a standard a 4 position m-4 adjustable stock.

    all my other m-4orgeries came with either a 5 or six position stock that either was or close to mill spec.

    are these 4 position stocks good enough or are they junk????""

    I thought the 4 position stock was just an older design, then replaced by the 6 position?
    I got a 4 position and I like it, but then I always use it all the way out and collapse it for storage or transport.

    interesting--is your 4 position pretty good quality wise? i may just order the kit with one if it is up to par.

    I'd say the quality is about the same. A guy I shoot with has a Colt AR with the 6 position and the only differences I noticed on his was the unlocking lever thing was better made and the checkering on the butt end was deeper, other then that is looked and felt the same.

    The 4 position collapsible stock was standard on the CAR-15 and that era of shorty ARs.

    I guess they had to be update the mechanism to charge more . . . .

    I thought the 4 position was a "car-15" stock, the 6 position being a "M-4" type. I think you can get varying quality out of either design. I also think the buttplate is a good bit smaller on the car-15 than the M4 type.

    I also think the car type has a sling point on the top, the M4 has a swivel on bottom? (I like the top mount.)

    I have used both and really have no preference. I always shoot with it fully extended and did not really notice any length difference, I shoot alot of different types of rifles so I am constantly changing my grip to adjust to the rifle. I guess if you prefer to shoot in any other position than fully extended you could run into a comfort problem. I would definately stick with a trusted name brand maybe one with a name that matches the reciever, there are some really low buck stocks out there and I don't think I would trust one of the cheap ones. If you can find a trademark on it and identify who made it that would probably tell you if it is junk or not.
