Best AR buttstocks for modded MKA?

Recommended Posts

I am going with an adjustable AR/M4 type unit for my MKA. I will be using the Firebird adapter.

I'd like one strong enough for a shotgun, I know most are intended for 5.56.

What's on your gun?

Any advice is appreciated.

Pics always invited.

Thanks

I just got one of these to mount on my new Tac-12 lower. I will let everyone know how it goes after testing. Here is a link.

 

ATI Scorpion : http://www.atigunstocks.com/stocks/437-ar-15-stikeforce-scorpion-stock-and-pistol-grip-package-.html

 

That looks like the buttstock Firebird Precision puts on the 922 compliance guns they sell through Centerfire. I have one of these and it works well.

 

Good basic stock. Strong enough for Firebird so its strong enough for me.

I always like the ACS, it's like the Noveske AR stock. Or you know the real deal Noveske is nice, and get the tube with the numbers, kinda nice if you go shooting with friends a lot.

Sure you want an adjustable stock? I tried a couple with mine and did not like them at all. Not built for shotgun recoil. I felt like i was just asking for problems, probably at the most inopportune time. And for what? I dont wear body armor so i didnt figure i really nneded an adjustable stock. I didn't really like how they felt.

 

I am now putting ace and magpul's new fixed stocks on my MKAs.

Montana3gunner,

 

Did you try the UBR? Just wondering because I, like yourself do not feel like most adjustable stock would last. This thing really does seem solid.

I hope Nanci sends my tac-12 lower before you leave town.

 

 

Are these even available anywhere ?

 

 

Yes they are, call Firebird when we're back from MG Nationals.

The thing to remember that is many reputable manufacturers have been running collapsible stocks on their shotguns for quite some time ( Mesa Tactical, Vang, Scattergun Tech and Knox). I ran a Knox on my 590A1 with no problems whatsoever (shooting hundreds of rounds of slugs and buck). The trick is buying a quality stock and buffer tube. That's why I recommend the VLTOR A5 shotgun specific tube. It's overbuilt and reinforced in the threaded area where it joins the reciever. Then just get a quality mil-spec sized stock to go with it. Magpul stocks works extremely well and you can purchase their thicker butt pad if necessary. Everything is US made which is icing on the cake.

Any GOOD milspec buffer that is from a reputable brand will be fine. I can't imagine how many rounds some of the Firebird guys have down range, but I was looking at all my slug/buck hulls from since I've gottan my 1919, I've shot a fuck ton with a "weak" AR buffer tube with an adjustable stock and don't see any stress what-so-ever to any of the stops on the stock.

... I recommend the VLTOR A5 shotgun specific tube.

What is VLTOR's model number for this "shotgun-specific" tube?

Question for Firebird Precision!

I know that your long billet stocks are A-1 length but what I want to

know is whats the lenght of your short billet stock in the photo I posted above.

I like the L.O.P. on my factory MKA stock and would like to know what would

work best with your alloy lower and butstock to get the same L.O.P. as the mka stock.

"Note"

I was also thinking of a folding mechanism for storage and transporting the

MKA as well....so I will probably need to factor in the 1-1/2 thickness of the folding adaptor to.

They're entry length stocks, it says so on the fb page where you found the picture :P
The factory stocks are a half inch longer than A2 length.

When installed, the total length is 7.27" from receiver to rear surface (buttplate).

This is, of course, without any recoil pad added.

And the adjustable version would add at least another 2 1/2".
