    Thoughts on collapsible stock

    I am thinking about putting a collapsible stock on a PTR 91 GI I bought a few weeks ago. I plan to keep shooting it and am wondering about the recoil and cheek weld while using it. Can someone with a collapsible stock give me their experience with theirs? Thanks

    It's a personal preference. There is basically no cheek weld and the recoil sucks as there is a minimal pad.

    I was thinking along what you said but wanted to get some more to think about. Thanks
    I suppose the stock looks cooler than it actually functions.

    Had one some time back. Look somewhat cool, but made it very uncomfortable to shoot the rifle. Traded it off and went back to standard stock.

    I can somehow relate to the collapsable stock, but have one with a brace on my zenith z43p. Looks cool but, more choices out there.
    I do have a ptr 32, with a Spuhr adjustable stock...this stock completely changes the rifle shooting and handling dynamics.
    And will do wonders shooting the .308 round, great stock if your considering scoping or use of a reddot. Does not work if your gonna shoot with factory irons...at least for me

    The Spuhr stock looks interesting, similar to an AR stock. I think I will use the PTR as is for now. I can buy a lot of ammo for the price of a stock.

    I don't have any trouble with recoil and the collapsible stock. I think it comes down to how you shoulder the rifle. I have a 45-70 with a crescent steel buttplate, that one leaves a mark after 20 rounds. I've put 50-100 through my cetme with a G3 collapsible on it and never had a bruise from it. You feel it more than a wood stock with a soft pad, but its not too bad.

    A good bit of the felt recoil of any stock on a roller lock has to do with the bolt gap and that sweet spot where the rifle functions near perfect, Having said that the Meat Grinder will always be a little more punishing than most any other stock made for it.

    I have a few. Fun to shoot.
    Just don't shoot them with a t-shirt on.

    The only problem I have had with them is when you take them to the range you don't get to shoot them much.
    Everyone wants to shoot them.
    I started loading a bag with 5 rounds in mags just to allow other to shoot them.

    Both have been modified.
    Top one is a Cetme.
    Bottom one is a G-3.


    Enjoy!

    Ron,

    Where are the hand guards from on your rifles? They look like the T48 hand guards from the U.S. trial version of the FAL
