Does anyone know which compay makes a adjustable metal stock for ar applications or a short metal one thats non-ace. I remember seeing a thread before that had one that would be a good back up if you run out of ammo in close quarters.

The ZMWeapons/Para TTR have a metal folding and adjustable stock. But it only works with ZM/Para TTR uppers or weapons with AR stock converters since the stock cannot be mounted on a recoil tube. Probably not what you are looking for...

not quite sure what you're looking for, but you'll find plenty of options here:

Found an old Gunbroker auction for a metal collapsible AR stock, but it doesn't state who made it. You could contact the seller and ask.

Your best bet as a backup in close quarters is gonna be a muzzle strike, especially with the AR platform. Several guys in my unit went through some CQB training with SEAL's as instructors. At one point during training, they had to attempt to disarm one of the instructors. That SEAL just used the muzzle end of the rifle for striking until they gave up (rather quickly). As it was told to me by one of the guys who had been struck, it's not an experience you want to go through more than once...

Even when striking with a steel buffer tube or stock, the weak link is going to be the receiver where the buffer tube threads in. 7075 aluminum is quite strong, but very brittle. It doesn't take much to crack that portion of the lower receiver right off.

LOL, either that or a Tromix. You just gotta love muzzle devices that look more like food processors than part of a firearm :chris:

The original collapsable stocks that came out in Vietnam were metal, not sure how good they are for striking though.

As others have said, a good muzzle is better then your stock for melee. My vote is for Yankee Hill Phantom Muzzle Break, or the Troy Medieval. Both nasty in a melee sense.

I have a metal CAR stock made by Armalite back in the early/mid-90s
Make a good enough offer and I might take it off my OLL & sell/trade it. ;)

Are you sure the one you are thinking of is not the Ace Ltd stock?

It's the only one I can think of that is metal and looks similar to the UBR.
FWIW, I have had no problems with any ACE products I own.
