For all of you who own a ACS or EMOD, does the trapdoor storage compartment have enough real estate and volume to contain a spare bolt?

Since I don't run a vertical grip anymore, I'm looking for a stock setup that could house the spare bolt. I do realize the MIAD could serve as storage, but would like to take a gander at the stocks as an all-in-one solution.

The Emod does not have enough storage for a bolt. I would go with the storage in the grip like MIAD or ERGO. I'm not sure about the ACS though.

Couldn't the bolt fit into the ACS's battery compartments? Anybody try this yet?

Good question. This is my reasoning, which is flawed.

I would like an all-in-one stock solution that can store the following:
1) spare bolt qty. 1
2) spare firing pin qty. 1
3) spare cam pin qty. 1
4) >= 2 CR123 batteries
5) >= 1 DL1/3N battery OR 1 CR2032 battery

I like the fact that the ACS is roughly the same profile as the LMT SOPMOD and about the same length, although the ACS is slightly longer. The SOPMOD just "does it for me" and I figure the ACS would as well. I'm asking for a bit much, but do not feel like spending well over 300 bucks on Magpul MIADs unless there is a good plug out there for the A2 grip.

The bolt is a hair too big to fit in the side compartments.

Couldn't the bolt fit into the ACS's battery compartments? Anybody try this yet?
