The stock has nothing to do with the gas system.

The length of the gas system just signifies where the gas port is located. Either way gas is going to get rerouted back into the upper and cycle the rifle. The stock type is completely dependent on the tube. Full stocks always use rifle tubes no matter the size or type, carbine tubes always take retractable stocks regardless of size or type.

use whichever stock you're comfortable shooting with.
