    Locking a AR-15 collapsible stock

    Is there a way to "lock" a collapsible AR-15 stock so it can collapse a little bit but not fully? (For an sbr to not go less than 762mm)

    Yes.

    I used a section of plumbers pipe. Cut to correct length and put in stock. Easy.

    Or a piece of dowel in the back of the stock. Wrap it with electrical tape so it fits snug and push it in.

    A small hole and a roll pin through the stock to contact the back of the buffer tube also works, esp on the sorts of stock which don't have a blind hole
    Identify your target beyond all doubt

    Drop it inside stock, put stock back on buffer tube.

    Right length was about 50mm.

    @Square22,

    Unless you are of small stature or else usually shoot wearing body armour / heavy winter coat, you may benefit from the extra inch or more that a recoil pad gives. Maybe that's enough to stay above the magic 762mm, without sacrificing a cool clicky clacky stock feature. But good advice given above.

    This.

    I like a long stock(long arms), but wanted a short barrel, the combo of locking stock and big pad, did the length thing.
