Does anyone have a spare Mark 1 Mod 0 M4 collapsible stock we could borrow or buy for cheap (I would be willing to trade a patch or two for it…)? Just the stock, not the buffer tube or anything.
Better Half and I are bony enough that having a standard plastic stock jammed up against our collar bones (like it will be during prone exercises) is not exactly the most comfortable thing in the world, and given her shoulder issues already, I figured a simple pad would be an easy fix and well worth it. The only problem is that the actual butt on the Knoxx Axiom is not exactly M4-spec, in that the endplate is significantly thicker, and the dorsal sling point is actually on the bottom of the butt, rather than on the inside slope up to the release switch – you can see that bottom sling nub here, though that is sadly not Better Half’s rifle.
Suffice to say, this gets in the way of the pad, and requires her to use one of the side sling points on the butt, which, when the sling is placed under tension, makes the whole gun twist a little. We do know the Axiom takes all M4-style collapsible stocks, but despite assembling an AR-15, I do not have the right kind of spare stock handy (never bought one, since I was never going to use it… seemed rather superfluous), so here we are.
I know someone has one of those things tucked away in a closet somewhere…
