    Carbine or Rifle Stock for an AR15?

    Besides sites all I need is a stock/extension/buffer to complete my AR build. I just remembered I don't have any magazines. I should buy some of those, too.

    I ordered a BCM completed upper with a 16" barrel today.

    What is the consensus here? I was looking at the Magpul Rifle Stock.

    Which do you prefer and why?

    16" barrel definitely a carbine stock. IMO
    My 16" S&W sports an Ace Entry and my 20" Colt has its factory A2 stock.

      In NY where you don't have the freedom to adjust the stock go rifle. The rifle-length receiver extension and buffer are more reliable and you don't have to play the buffer guessing game.
      I like the Magpul stock. It has a generous compartment for a cleaning kit and spare batteries.

        My Smith use the stock carbine buffer and spring. No guessing game here.

          Rifle-length tubes are a lot more forgiving of gas port sizes, which is a plus when you're building a gun.
