Recently installed the RRA telescoping stock and was surprised by the amount of wobble. Just wondering if anyone has a VLTOR or Magpul stock, heard that those have little to no "play" at all? :)

I have a VLTOR and there is very little play, your play is a regular and counter clockwise play?

Yes sir :) Just the regular clockwise/counter clockwise type play. Which VLTOR stock do you have? :)

This topic may be a little off, but i'll chime in if anything happens. I also had a RRA telescoping stock but sold it when it wasn't quite machined right where the bottom of the tube keeps the buffer retaining pin in place. Not to mention, it had alot of slop. Sold it cheap and bought a Stag stock assembly. World of difference plus the stag buffer tube is mil-spec where the RRA buffer tube isn't. Cheers.

Nice, thank you both for the info. I will definately look into VLTOR and Stag stocks.

If that is a mil-spec tube, a SOPMOD or Magpul CTR would be wobble free. Both are very sturdy.

I have a RRA 6 pos stock that used to have a lot of play. The fix is to remove the stock body, wrap it in a towel or something else to prevent marring, then put it in a vice (the portion that the buffer tube slides into).

Heat the inside with a hair dryer. When it gets hot, close the vice a little bit. Remove and test fit. Repeat until play is gone.

Be careful though, if you squeeze too much the stock will no longer fit on the tube.

I have a Bushmaster Carbon 15 with an elcheapo 6pos stock that wobbles quite a bit, and a Viltor Clubfoot that has just the slightest amount-just what you would expect to enable the stock to slide smoothly and no more. It feels much better... but it cost (complete with tube/spring/buffer) $180 so it is not a fair comparison.

I used to have the Ace M4 SOCOM collapsable stock on my AR and it is simply the best. When they say it is strong they mean it. No play at all. The only reason I took it off was I replaced it with an A2 stock, its going to go on my carbine build next. In other words, Ace=Recommended :cool: .

I have 2 Sopmod stocks.. Both are WOBBLE free.. Mil-Spec LMT tube on one and Mil-spec Colt tube on the other..

No complaints so far. I have a cheapo 4 position? one i bought from bushmaster.. wobbles like a gyroscope that's about to stop spinning...

amazingly true when it comes to gun stuff, you buy cheap, you buy twice..

The RRA stocks are less "wobbly" than the Stag stocks I have seen. The LMT SOPMOD and Vltor stocks have been pretty much wobble free however. You get what you pay for.

i Have a RRA AR and there is very little wobble in it. I dont know what yall constitute as a lot. I would say mine is less than 1/16 of an inch. Is that a lot? My groups are still tight with this config.

Well the stock wouldn't have any affect on accuracy besides your comfort or cheek weld.

Thanks! I quite love it. It's sitting next to me right now. lol.

The bipod is from Tango Down. It's really nice and sturdy, but the price is pretty disgusting.
