I am looking to keep my featureless build but have a relatively short buttstock but good at managing recoil. I have looked around but nothing just jumps out at me other than

ACE Entry Skeleton Buttstock 7-1/4" Overall Length AR-15 Aluminum Black (http://www.midwayusa.com/viewProduct/?productNumber=183579)

Which I would still need to add recoil protection, whatever form that would take. It doesn't seem like there are many good solutions out there for heavy caliber AR platforms to reduce recoil like there is for 12Ga shotguns.

what caliber you going for?
ive shot .50 beawolf and it wasnt that bad to where i would see the need for extra protection.

The Sully stock is supposed to be really good if you can get past the looks.

The sully is a great stock - simply unbreakable.

An original A1/M16 stock is a great choice, too.

What about choosing whatever stock you want and spending the extra cash to get a recoil managing buffer like those made by Enidine? Just a thought, might not be the best solution, would depend what you are shooting.

Q: Isn't weight the best way to counteract recoil?

A2 buttocks + lead = cheap, affordable solution.
