I have everything for a fulton build now and was wondering if any calgunners would mind offering some guidance on a stock. I would like something with a monopod, However the only config I am seeing is a Magpul with a Accu-shot monopod mounted on the stocks bottom rail.
Anyone using this setup... offer up your opion of it please.
Or if anyone else knows of another stock setup with a monopod please chime in, so I at very least have some options to choose from. I cannot seem to find anything else out there to meet this need.
Google was fruitless for me on the subject, and none of the vendors I frequent have any other options for ar-10.
If the magpul the only setup going at this point?

Thanks all,
Noah

Magpul PRS works well, just make sure you get the AR-10 version so that the cheek weld clears the charging handle (otherwise it is the same as the AR-15 version).

Why do you want the monopod? What do you intend to do with the rifle?

A monopod is rather useless unless all you're doing is shooting from a solid stationary position. It does not allow for quick adjustments or large range of motion. I'll admit though.. they at least look cool :)

I will do mostly bench and prone long range shooting with this rifle.
the accu-shot does fold away when not in use.
I was just wonsering if there any other options at all?
especially since a PRS & accu-shot will be over $350 after tax. :eek:

Being that I have a side charging upper, like this

could I use a ar15 model. they seem to be more plentiful and better priced online.
The ar-10 models seem to be sold out at many places and premium priced elswhere.

This is roughly what I am going for...

I currently have everything except for the optics and stock.

Yes, you can use the AR-15 model with side charger. The only difference between the AR-10 and AR-15 model is the cut out on the cheek rest for AR-10 longer charging handle, but in your case that is a moot point.

Thanks c.g. !
great to know.

Anyone else out there have any other mono pod stocks setups?
or is the PRS the only game in town?

the PRS is going to be your best bet i have one on 2 of my rifles and hands down i think they are the best stock for long range shooting form the AR type rifle

Forget the monopod, I have one on my .223 and never use it. Bean bag rear supports are infinitely more useful and more practical. I'm glad I only bought one. They look cool but they only work in idealized shooting positions with LOTS of time to adjust.

Command Arms makes several stocks with monopods, but the pricing is as much if not more than a PRS with monopod. CAA makes decent products, but for the money the Magpul stock is much better.

FMJBT,
Thanks for the links, thats very helpful. Its looks to me like the PRS is a much better product as far as fit, finish, and function go. At least I know whats out there though. Thank You.

Merk762, I appriciate the input. Deffinately will be going with the PRS.

Have you seen or used this "quick adjust" model from accu-shot?

according to the discription here:
http://www.site-secure.biz/accushot/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=21&products_id=60
the button on the side allows you to slide it into position and then when relesed the knob allows for fine adjustment. seems like a good idea to me :shrug:
However the price is a bit steep.

I've used both. The quick adjust is a definite improvement but I still find a rear beanie to be more stable during matches.

There is also the SSR-25 stock, I've seen them priced in the $100 area on ARF.com. Looks neat have'nt read a review

I like how simple that design is on that ssr-25.
I can't find any reviews either when I google around :(
I can't afford to be a genie pig.


Solidsnake87, I have never used a rear pod. I have a few bags already and thought I might give the mono a try, thinking I have one less thing to lug around. However, at the cost I think you have convinced me to just forget it and put the money to something else.
Like the very pricey accu-shot bi-pod that I keep eyeing.
