Ok, who is running a pdw stock on their builds?
What is your opinion?
I'm interested as well, I have trouble stomaching the price though.
Likes: the only advantage is OAL
Dislikes: be careful what your buying, as the sub $300 models are not true PDW stocks. The older designs don't have a cheek weld, which is annoying ! And what's been said, price tag !!

I don't, but a friend of mine runs two of the Mawim PDW stocks with the JP captured springs. They work well, it seems, and he likes them.
I went the other route, and used the Law Gen3 folder on my 7.5, and I actually prefer the Law to the Maxin type stocks, as you can fold down to 18 inches, with a 7.5 barrel.
The Maxim collapses to about 26 inches, with the 7.5 barrel.
Edit, they function fine, but he's using some pretty high end parts. I wouldn't want to use one on a budget build with cheap parts, as the function may not be guaranteed.... But then, what is a guarantee lol.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but I've never tried "running" a stock on a rifle. I've used a great many, however.

with the Weather.
Alternative is the LWRC Ultra Compact stock.
A buttstock sized to a pistol length buffer tube. Uses a flatwire spring and a proprietary buffer. I have one on my SBR, normal stockweld. I am 6'2", maxed out the stock fits fine collapsed the stock is 1 1\2" shorter than a carbine length buffer tube collapsed.
But then of course I might be a 13 year old girl who reads alot of gun magazines, so feel free to disregard anything I post.
Don't have one but handled one at aim surplus. The rifle was heavy and the center of balance was off. I didn't like it
I have the MVB ARC collapsible stock on a pdw AR with 8" bbl.
I haven't fired it yet so I can't comment on the usability. : /
It is very compact and well built, but it is a PITA to break down and pull out the bolt if needed.
I don't think I would put this on a weapon that was going to be used for anything more than bugout or truck gun.
gosh your joke is even more funny in this thread than it was in my thread a few months back.

I prefer the LAW Tactical folder/adapter. Use any butt stock you like.
No matter how much you push the envelope, it'll still be stationery.
I've used the LWRC PDW, the Troy PDW and and a Maxim Defense CQB. All functioned fine, although I swapped for a heavybuffers.com buffer immediately on the LWRC. The Troy had way too much play in it for me when extended, so I sold it and switched to the Maxim Defense. The Maxim has better cheek weld, solid lock up (compared to the Troy), can be extended with one hand, and I like the JP captured buffers when shooting suppressed. Plus, the Maxim breaks down like a normal rifle. The Troy uses a bolt/buffer combo and you have to push both pins and slide the upper forward to remove it. I use the Maxim on an SBRed lower with both 9mm and .300 BLK (and have both JP captured buffers) - no reliability issues shooting suppressed or unsuppressed. However, the Maxim stocks with JP buffers are ridiculously expensive. The LWRC has a much better feel than the Maxim and is less expensive, but is larger overall. If you need a short stock and are on a budget I'd go LWRC.
