    Collapsible Stock Position?

    Alright AR guys. Mostly just for discussions sake:

    If you have a collapsible stock, which position do you like to use when shooting it?

    I like the second click for "nose to the charging handle" shooting myself.

    This is a very 'individual thing'...also depends upon a scope you may use (EO Tech), length of arms...
    I like mine fully extended.

    Stay armed...know your limits...stay safe!

    I'll usually run mine out to the fourth click for using a scope on the flat top, or my Red Dot mounted on the carry handle. For using the open sights, I'll run it all the way out to the last stop.

    Mine is one short of fully extended. I've got giant 38" (shirt size) gorilla arms. But it works well with my EOTech and Aimpoint magnifier.

    I've found that the 3rd click is most comfortable for me. I used to shoot with the stock full-out, but the gun is a lot easier to support when it's collapsed a bit. I still can't get used to shooting with the stock fully collapsed though.

    Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?

    A very individual choice, in just civvies, 4 clicks, when I have handled an M-4 in full gear, 2 clicks.

    Really it should be whatever is comfortable for the shooter and gives them a good site picture.

    Put it where it is most comfy for you. That's why it's got more than one stop.

    I'm a big guy (6'4", 230), but I like to be right down on that receiver. The stock we make for the AR goes from 9 and 1/4 " of pull all the way out to 14"...I have mine collapsed all the way down (something about that position helps me keep my elbows in and thus, less exposed).

    I also have the same setup on my Remington 870. Anyone who doesn't have a collapsible on their AR or shotgun can contact me and I'll happily send you a test and Eval stock to try out.

    We're ATI and we've made great strides in our product quality in the last few months since we were purchase by a much larger company. Look for new AR and Shotgun stocks on the market in 2009!!

    With scope I tend to use it in, and iron sights out.
    With my pre AWB Bushy those are my only options!
    Maybe it is time to try something new......

    I have fairly long arms so set my stock at full extension.

    I don't have an adjustable stock (yet) but shoot several different rifles with various stock lengths.

    It depends on eye relief from the optics. At my age it also depends on the time of day, because I have to hold near things further away in the mornings when my far sightedness is dominant. In the evening after my eyes are tired I sometimes need glasses to help with distance.

    It depends on what I'm wearing and the reason for the adjustable stock,theres a difference in a T-shirt and a winter coat or a ballistic vest ,length of arms the first ones were on the colt commando M-16 IIRC

    The same thing I always tell my friend (who also posts here.) You gotta put it on the man spelling. All the way back.

    I use all the way out usually, but for close in work I usually collapse it to the first or second position.

    I am a tall guy of average build (long arms). I prefer one click short of fully extended for most use, for slicing the pie I take it all the way down to the receiver.
