I know someone in the SF Bay Area that was working on a M96 stock almost like the one you have pictured. I'll forward this link to the person and see if there is any interest.

I'd take one.

Was asking about the legality of it in an earlier post, but I think it would fly.
At the very least, it would certainly give it a different look.

This type of stock has been in use on M-14 pattern rifles for some time now. It is lawful, the thumb crosses over the "imaginary line" drawn through the bottom of the action. It is not a pistol grip... VERY COOL look btw :D!

On a side note, with the use of a Gas Piston upper on an off-list lower a similar stock could be fabricated for the AR-15 platform.

Here's a little something that KenV shared with me while we were hard at work.

Check out the GSR-35 Black Lightning at http://www.aresdefense.com/product.html

Pricey, but still an option

I saw this offered somewhere on the net, but the manufacturer referred to it's "pistol grip." Kinda killed the idea of claiming it did not have a pistol grip...

It is not a pistol grip according to the DOJ definition- that's what matters- the manufacturer can call it a machine gun stock if they want to :D

Originally this post was in regards to a stock along the lines of a McMillan A2, attached to a Robar M96. A functional and practical AR design would be difficult and a tad clumsy best, but there is always hope.

I would suggest that the original poster contact Matt at Ironwood Designs, and suggest such a stock to him. He's already thinking about building non-pistol grip AR15 stocks.

Iron Wood's FAQ's state that they are not doing custom work unless is a simple modification of a current design.
Sadly, the M96 isn't nearly as wide spread as the AR.

Worth looking into, but does anyone know of any other custom stock manufacturers?

You are right, I was interested in knowing how much a stock like that would be for the M96 not an AR. If I remember correctly, it was based of the mcmillan stock like you said. But I didnt see who made this particular one though and was hoping someone who made stocks and was a member here could tell me how much something like this might cost.
