This stock takes that issue away with its innovative design. Beyond the fast action design, it also includes a standard 0.30″ thick rubber butt-pad.

Conclusion: Choosing the Right AR Stock For You
Are you looking of a rifle built for accuracy in long range shooting? You may want to go with a fixed stock, or even an adjustable “sniper stock” that lets you modify the length of pull and comb height with precision. Perhaps you want a super lightweight rifle, and weight is your biggest concern.
Ultimately, there’s a ton of options for minimalist stocks that weigh nearly nothing. If you’re building a rifle for home defense use, you should take a look at a collapsible stock option. These stocks are useful in these situations because you can shorten it up for indoor use, and open it back up when shooting at the range. The potential uses in all of these different kinds of stocks are truly limitless, and the beauty of customizing your own rifle is that you can optimize things like the buttstock for the way you want to use it.
