View Full Version : Any chance adjustable L.O.P. stock model?

10-29-2009, 06:50 PM
I have wanted to buy a M1 Carbine for my wife and son to learn to shoot with but none of the stocks for a Carbine will fit someone of small stature.

Does anyone know and has anyone ever thought about an adjustable L.O.P. synthetic stock for the M1 Carbine? Something similar to the synthetic, folding stock model except you redo the mold so that the stock has a synthetic tube that you could fit an adjustable buttstock from an AR.

What does everyone else think about this??

I tried to help you on this but am not having any luck. There were two companies that I can think of making adjustable stocks for M1 Carbines in the 1980s and 90s. Advanced Tech had a wire stocked model that adjusted for length of pull. It was primarily wood save for the stock itself. There was also a small company making a nice looking polymer one with a metal wire collapsing stock. I met the gentleman that designed it at a gun show once and he demonstrated how securely it locked. It was before the ban, so I am sure that killed his business. I want to say he was based in Missouri, maybe in the Kansas City area. I remember his advertisements in SGN said something about "modernizing war baby". I cannot find anyone selling either stock online at this time, so both may have been discontinued.

Then there is the Hezi bullpup conversion. I always thought that looked quite interesting although I would not sacrifice a surplus M1 for the purpose.

You could buy a Synthetic Replacement Stock
in Syn-Tech Black #18025 I remember reading the length of pull was 2" shorter. It costs $56.00 and you could do what you wanted to do
to this stock without butchering the nice stock on the M1.

Note: I have never tried this stock on a gun. Still saving my pennies
to buy my M1 carbine

You can see the stock at:

Thanks for the help. I guess in my minds eye I am thinking of something similar to the TAPCO stocks for Mini-14 and so on.

One stock will not help me because everyone is of a different size so it has to be adjustable.

Do you have some better pics? The ones on the website seem to be taken from a mile away.

I don't have a pic yet of the M1 Carbine with our new M4 telescoping stock. I will get a few pics in the next few days. Here are the Mini 14 and 10-22 in the same style stock.

Thanks!! We try our best!!!

It looks like just what I wanted.

Quick question, Is the pistol grip small enough for small hands? What I mean is "Is the distance between the trigger and the place on the pistol grip where the web of the thumb sits small enough that small hands can get a good grip on the pistol grip as a whole?

Thanks alot!!!

Yes, we have met with great success with this stock. All of our pistol grip rifle stocks (and now the M4 telescoping) have a med size grip).

Here are some pics of the actual stock with a gun in it. That is a recoil pad it is balanced on for pics and not part of the stock......LOL. Remember, we make stocks, not great pictures...:19:

That is a thing of beauty!

Just what I had imagined. The pics a good enough for now, but maybe in the future a close up of the transition from the rear of the receiver to the start of the tube.

The grip is small. It is the same as our PG stocks. I will get a pic of the transition from the housing to the stock shortly.
