Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default M16A2/AR15A2 Stocks

Been looking for one for a while. The ones I find are either cheap chinese plastic knockoffs or $80+.

CDNN has some made by Mossberg on sale for $50 and shipping. Includes stock, buffer tube, spring, buffer, sling attachment point, and buttplate and mounting screws.

I got a Shipped notice not even 15 minutes after I ordered it, and a Fedex tracking number as well.

Been wanting an A2 stock for my 350 Legend build which may also double as an AR15A2 build - especially since 350 Legend disappeared from the shelves before I could stock up enough to make it a viable caliber for my uses. At least I got a box of hunting ammo for it and 100 rounds of FMJ practice ammo. The 20 round mags also got hard to come by, but it looks like they are slowly trickling back into the market. Only one outfit makes a good 20 round mag for it. I like to have, at the very least, 10 mags per firearm that uses mags.

It looks to me, about the only difference between the A1 & A2 stocks is, the A2 is a shade longer. Is that correct?

Or is the buffer and spring a little longer also?

I think the A1's were fiberglass and blacker? I never broke an A1 stock, even though I was none too gentle with them back in Basic Training. I saw some broken ones in the arms room, though. I think those got run over by something. The A2's were more greyish with a light brushed type finish. But maybe that's how new A1 stocks were at one time? I never saw a new A1 stock, but got issued a brand new, never fired A2.

I just know they listed it as an A2 stock.

It arrived yesterday, and looks more like an A1 stock than an A2 stock. If you are building an A1 clone, this stock would work.

The stock itself is solid and well made. It will feel good once I get it mounted on my last stripped receiver. I may sell my 350 Legend upper and try and find an A1 or A3 upper with a 20" barrel. They are out there. Just have to spend some time looking.
