    I have the Spear, but haven't fitted it yet.
    Forum member Glu did the Servo, by all accounts it doesn't have the issue of destroying the selector spring when removing the stock after fitting, unlike most other thumbhole stocks.
    The Spear needs a little bit of work to prevent this. Ie drill out selector spring hole completely and fit grub screw.

    I fitted the Spear to my blackout AR, just used a stanley knife blade to hold the spring back as I slipped the stock on. It's a skinny arse stock thou, no meat at all in the grip, needs bulking out IMO.

    I had a play with the guncity one a few months back and i found it to be really good. I run a hogue and an A2 stock on some of my gear and it feels just the same (for obvious reasons) but i havnt tried the other two options. I will probably stick with what i know and (cough!) go with the guncity variant on the A Cat build.

    Doesn't that servo one make an ass of the intent of the law.
    I had a look at a spear stock during the week, I wasn't that impressed. I thought the finish with the moulding on this one was very average. No ergonomics with the grip. I didn't realise they are plastic, the picture on the website is very flattering.
    Functional, but I agree only just beefy enough looking on first impressions.

    They work, as advertised to make you compliant. I have given up trying, Sold my A cat lower and go back to the other version.

    the intent of the law is fucking retarded and pointless, so who cares? following the letter of the law isn't making an ass of it, a loophole, etc, it's compliance

    He is a commercial advertiser, we just have some minor technical issues with the advertising.

    Happy, I would say that he is waiting for the new shorter stock screws to arrive before sending the stocks out, as the A2 stock bolt is a bit too long (could hit the buffer tube), if you have a magpul stock already, it won't be an issue.
