AR15 AWB Compliant and Fixed Buttstocks

Below are some of the stocks I have found that appear to be suitable for ar15 fixed stock applications, remain AWB compliant or both.

Rock River Arms (RRA) Entry Buttstock

A full stock, with the same length as a collapsed M4, CAR stock; quick to shoulder, fast handling and maneuverable in confined or restricted areas. Provides a consistent and comfortable cheek weld for greater control and accuracy. Compact dimensions reduce overall length to 32" when used with a 16" barrel. Furnished with carbine-length buffer, tube and recoil spring.

This buttstock is a great alternative for shooter who live in AWB states that desire the short length of a collapsible buttstock in a fixed length stock

The Sully Stock is a conventionally-designed AR-15/M16 fixed stock, but with a shorter length of pull designed for use with body armor, or anyone that prefers a shorter stock. It is approximately 8” long, compared to 10” for the A1 and 11” for the A2. The stocks also come with 2 buttpads. A standard length and an extended length that adds another 1" to the LOP.

The Sully Stock is made of solid polymer and is finished in a very nice textured matte finish. It is designed for HARD USE and can withstand whatever you can dish out. The Sully Stock also comes complete with all hardware needed including the Buffer Tube, Buffer, spring, butt plate, sling swivel, and screw. A note on the buffer system, it uses the ultra short tube like the RRA entry and the Ace ARFXE stocks.

Sully Stock

Installation and Observations: The Sully Stock and related parts mounted up with no surprises. Once mounted to the rifle the stock is very sturdy and solid in feel. The stock is heavy compared to a standard A2 or A1 stock.

At first I was a bit bothered by this, but once mounted on the rifle, it was very well balanced. The rifle that I used for testing was a 16” ultra lightweight A1. I usually have an A1 or ARFXE stock on this rifle as I found out the A2 length stocks are too long for most shooters including myself.

I ran the first day of the class with my existing setup and the ARFXE stock with the 1” rubber pad. I really liked this setup and have used it for a while, it provides very fast shouldering and an instant sight picture. One thing I did notice was that the recoil seemed very sharp compared to the A1 stock.

On the next day, I replaced the ARFXE stock with the Sully Stock. Again, the rifle shouldered very nicely, but seemed a tad to short and I was having difficulty getting a good sight picture and cheek weld. The Design behind the Sully Stock is geared towards Law enforcement and the use of body armor and I was wearing only a shirt and a Tac Vest. My solution to this was a KAC 1” extension with the sling mount. This provided an excellent LOP with my nose just at the charging handle.

The Sully Stock will be coming with a thicker buttpad that you can install to address this situation. Once underway and shooting, the stock and rifle performed flawlessly. Recoil seemed to be reduced compared to the ARFXE stock and follow-up shots were quicker as a result.

# I have now put about 4-5K rounds through my lightweight carbine with the Sully Stock and couldn't be happier. With the reduced LOP and the extremely solid construction, the Sully Stock is perfect when failure is not an option. . If you are need of a stock that reduces the LOP of the AR15 system, and want the BEST stock for the job, the Sully Stock is the answer. It is also the only answer if you require a fixed stock. The Sully Stock is available through The Defensive Edge. The stock is available in black or OD Green.

ACE Skeleton Buttstock


Fixed, A2-style rifle buttstock is the “no-profile” way to carry a spare, straight-body 20-round magazine for emergency reloads. Pull the recessed release lever on the back of the buttplate, swing open the storage compartment door, and hit the button on the right-hand side of the stock to pop out the backup magazine. A window in the side of the stock gives you an instant visual check to see if a backup mag is inside. Guide slots inside the compartment ensure the mag can be inserted only the right way. Made from solid, reinforced molded fiberglass, with a non-reflective dark gray finish, black polymer buttplate, and a fixed, steel sling loop in the toe accepts 1¼" wide slings. Fits rifles with receiver extension for A2 buttstock; kit includes buttstock spacer and screw.
