Vltor Carbine Modstock
Colt Ribbed stock
Colt early style CAR stock

Purpose of Item: The carbine stock is a housing that goes over the receiver extension (buffer tube) which allows the shooter to adjust the length of pull for comfort. Carbine stocks offer various cheekwelds depending on how they are configured, and the model used.

Stocks tend to be a highly personal item. Some people will have great appreciation of one style over another based on looks, comfort, or storage capability.

Its worth noting that there are two types of receiver extensions (buffer tubes) that come on AR15s. Military Spec tubes will fit Colt, CMT/ Stag, Vltor, LMT, and Magpul stocks. Commercial spec tubes come on Bushmaster, Olympic Arms, Rock River Arms, DPMS, and a few others. There are less options for owners of these weapons, and the commercial spec Magpul CTR is the primary choice. Ribbed stocks shown below are also an available item for people who want to get away from the older style basic carbine stock.
