I just bought an ace skeleton stock to replace the a2 style stock on my bushmaster varminter.The stock is lightweight with a shorter length of pull although it came with a rubber recoil pad for those wanting to maintain original length.I bought mine from midway for $65 from midway and it really changed the look of the rifle.

How's the balance? One of my least-favorite things about collapsible stocks and metal forends is that all the weight is in the front, and they don't handle very well. What do you think?

I like that more that those 6 Position Collapsible Stocks
I have this feeling that it might6 move back a notch or two when I'm shooting ::)
And I think that they are ugly.
But that is just me...

The barrel is a full inch up to the gas block before it tapers down to what u see in the picture so it is a little muzzle heavy,but it is my coyote rig so shot mostly off a harris bipod,although I dont notice it when burn through a few clips in backyard(its just to much fun).

Very nice! I been thinking about getting one of those for years.
$65 clams is a good deal!

Thanks for posting that pic. I have narrowed things down considerably and think I want the Rock River Predator 16" or the Coyote carbine. Either one of those really trips my trigger. I just need to sell my Stag 6.8mm to fund another AR-15 purchase. Your rifle looks like a great set up but I want something just a bit lighter.

I have ARs in 22lr, 9mm, 5.45, 5.56, 7.62x39, 6.8, .308, & .458 SOCOM. I wouldn't dare to part ways with the 6.8, in my opinion of all the calibers I have it provides the best balance between power & capacity.
Now sticking to the subject here an ACE stock on a 458 SOCOM.

Does the new stock reduce the "twang" effect of the standard A1-2 stock?
