Swiss stock vs. AR stocks
Im picking up a Sig 556 Swat with a swiss stock and with a DDLES adapter on monday.
Im undecided on running the swiss or a stock on the adapter.
What are the pro's and con's of each?
What stocks dont work well with that adapter and for what reason?
Thanks in advance
This also depends on what whether its the actual swiss stock or the swiss "style" stock. If its the american swiss style stock, then anything is an upgrade.
The biggest deciding factor should be how it fits you. The real Swiss stock is fixed length with only a longer buttpad available for people with long arms. But it looks best in my opinion and keeps the rifle looking more like its European cousins.
Ar stocks allow for much more adjustment and styles. If you need a longer stock because you have gorilla arms, like me, then its a huge plus. You can get stock with higher cheek rests, better sling attachments and heavier for a better balance with the front heavy sig 556.
I would try the swiss stock, feel it, decide if you even need to change and then go for what feels right.
Have not heard of any AR stocks that wont work with the ddles adapter.
Its the actual CH marked swiss stock. I think I will try it out and if it a different LOP I will likely sell the swiss stock and get an AR stock.
I'm picking up a Magpul Moe with riser for mine. The pics I've seen put it folding just under the charging handle. Regular M4 stocks fold well too.
I might try the enhanced B5 Sopmod depending on whether or not I like their new hush hush bravo stock.
the biggest difference is comfort.
the europeans, SIG & HK both use a 22mm(?) stock width, while the AR is wider to accommodate the buffer tube assembly,
a wider buttpad means a greater distribution of the felt recoil.
the swiss stocks look cooler and with a sig cheek piece it's more comfortable, comparable to an AR, but the non-cheek pieced
swiss stock is just a little less comfortable on the face, very much like the regular HK G36 stock.
