How do you like it? Is it shorter than the M4-style fully collapsed? Is your nose on the charging handle? Pictures would be great, if you've got'em.

The entry length was probably designed for those wearing body armor to not affect length of pull vs standard a2 stock without body armor. Had one on a 9mm rifle, yes your nose is pretty close to the handle, added a rubber recoil pad to add 1/2 inch to length of pull. I switched to a collapsible stock.

What jchen said. Even when wearing body armor, it was way too small for me.

I'm not sure what setup you're using, but if you have optics, you don't need to have your face that close. My Aimpoint is great in that regard.

I run a Sully fixed stock on my featureless. It's longer than the Entry and shorter than an A1.

I use the ACE ARFX-E entry length stock with the 1" recoil pad. The recoil pad isn't there to tame the savage recoil of the mighty 5.56 round, it's to give just the right amount of extra reach as the ACE stock is about the same length as a fully collapsed M4 stock. I'm pretty much nose to charging handle, but moving the rear sight forward keeps it from being uncomfortable.

Same here. I have a YHM rail and a Pentax 1 to 4X scope with fairly short eye relief so the set up works for me. I'm over 6" tall with long arms and it works OK with a shorty barrel. I wouldn't use it for target, but for having your arms & upper body sort of swallow up the gun it's OK.

The long arms must really come in handy.....being only 6" tall.:)
