Searching ar15forums is essentially useless. I'm going to be getting an AR15 in the not so distant future (after the part out and sale of my STi, to be exact), and I want to start nailing down the features that I want. Right now, I am looking at something to the effect of:
Flat top, carbine or midlength set up, using flip up sights, and eventually a reasonably priced optic on top.
Use will be limited almost solely to plinking in the 100 yrd. range. I currently shoot a 10/22, and have put a thousand or two rounds through an AK. My current situation has me shooting rifle left handed, due to a bad right eye (sibling/childhood indiscretion), though once i get some glasses that my change. I use a cheap Bushnell 3-9x32 scope on the 10/22, mostly because I can't pick out my holes in the target much past 20 yrds. when shooting open sights.
Back to the question at hand though. Has anyone used both, or more specifically, used the skeleton stock for an extended period. While I like the look of the skeleton, and doubt I would make much use of the variable lenght of the adjustable stock, I'm more concerned with having a rifle that feels comfortable when in use. I'm shorter (5'8"), so the only benefit I see to the collapsible stock is that I would be able to tailor the relieve on my optics to better suit my shooting position, and shorter reach. Any opinions?
The first of a handful of AR questions I have brewing.
