[5 of 5 Stars!]First, the price at Buds for this stock is the lowest I have seen. As for the stock itself, I did like the feel of the stock better than the standard M1A stock. It is a very solid stock, but not heavy, and I have the impression it will last forever. While some have complained about the installation of the stock being very hard and time consuming, I did not experience much of a problem. I did have to use a file for a few minutes so the trigger assembly would fit. A dremel was not needed, and the amount filed away was a fraction of a millimeter to a millimeter. If you view the Archangel installation video on youtube, you will be set. There were no issues with installing the barrel/receiver group. It is a very tight fit, but it all came together. The adjustable cheek piece is very sturdy, and I found that I personally needed it, as the standard M1A stock did not give me the cheek weld I needed to comfortably use the iron sights. As I am using a military web sling, you will need to order a pair of sling swivels and a sling, as neither the stock nor the M1A rifle come with it.

[5 of 5 Stars!]My first visit after watching Hickok45 videos and decided what the hey..Ordered this stock at a price I couldn't pass up on Aug 29th Received it today Sept 5th.
Took about a hour to fit it, my hands aren't as young as they used to be, and Its a winner for me. Keep in mind this is a tension fit and it does take a while to get everything to seat properly. If you have a M1A or M14 this stock is a must have. The wait times for other more expensive custom stocks is nonsense and this has all the bells and whistles you could as for ( for me anyway) .
Really pleased with the stock and I'll be back again for more from Bubs.. Well done !!
