    I have found that finding a good review on newly produced A2 buttstocks are hard to find.

    The stock is overall made really nice. It's color is a dark charcoal like it is supposed to be, not black like an A1. There was a little bit of edge damage in the fiberglass outer stock shell that might have been a manufacturing defect or from storage. I didn't notice it until I took some close-up pictures. The whole end plate including the trap door is made of plastic with steel hardware. The trap door latch pin is made of plastic, however the latch catch is steel. The trap door hinge bracket is steel. The inside of the stock is foam filled with a cavity or storage pocket molded in the foam. The sling loop is steel. The buffer tube screw has the proper drain hole. The buffer weight teetered between is 5.15 oz and 5.16 oz (kitchen scale) and is made with dead blow weights. The spring was 32.5 cm or 12.8 inches long with 43 coils. The spring, buffer, and buffer tube seem to be of good quality. Other than the plastic trap door latch pin, which functions just fine, you will not be disappointed with this stock. Overall, I am happy with this purchase.

    Luth-AR makes nice stocks for the AR overall. Not Mag-Pul level but a notch below and they have a nice niche of minimalist and modular stocks
