Adjustable AR Buttplate

#1

Post by StewNTexas » Sun Jul 27, 2014 2:20 pm

Picked-up a new Sig Sauer AR-15 yesterday, and am having a problem fitting it to me.

What I think I need is some type of buttplate that will allow some up and down adjustment. When I try to get into a sound shooting position, the comb is too low, and if I move my head down enough to see through the sights, my shooting muffs are pushed up so far they are not effective.

Any one have this problem? If I could find an adjustable plate so I could have enough up/down adjustment to keep this from happening.

Suggestions?

If the 2nd admendment only applies to muskets and muzzle-loaders, then the 1st admentment must apply only to the spoken or printed word. Printing must be done on hand presses, news stories must be written in longhand, no keyboards or electric processes may be used.

Magpul PRS stock is full adjustable, but expensive $200+ and heavy ( intended for a precision rifle, not a run-n-gun carbine.

Magpul also sells cheek risers for their MOE & CTR line of carbine stocks

And there are a few add-on risers available for basic M4 type adjustable stocks, used to have one that also held batteries.

Everyone of the cheek risers I have seen say that tbey interfere with the charging handle and could not be used on AR's

If someone runs across one that will not interfere with the CH and is for an AR please post it.

Use earplugs instead of muffs.

This. Also, the Mapul PRS stock does not interfere with the charging handle. I've had one on an AR15, and I currently have one on an AR10.......but it IS heavy.

Wear disposable foam earplugs. They work just as well or better than muffs if you insert them correctly, don't cause issues with stock fit and aren't as hot to wear in the summer. I use these.

I use re-usable "triple flange" ear plugs.

They provide better noise reduction than my ear muffs.

I can't remember where I got them but I have several pair. Try an industrial safety place or hardware store and find some you like.

My two cents...

Question for those that use plugs vs muffs....have you used them in an indoor range? I've been having the same issue of the muff getting bumped. I'm just wondering if plugs are enough for indoors. I'm VERY protective of my hearing.

I use the plugs I mention below indoors with no issues.

Consider these: 3M Peltor Shotgunner Folding Hearing Protector, Green

They work perfectly for my AR's, and only cost about $20.00. I've used them with my Magpul and Rogers Super stock on my two AR's.

Walmart sells them.

If they don't work, Walmart is great about customers returning items, but I'll bet they'll work for you by dint of their design.

I use them now, in addition to a pair of custom ear plugs as I don't find enough protection with just muffs or plugs.

Good luck!
