    good pic-rail stock alternative?

    got the pic rail stock adapter from life industries

    would you recommend an acr stock (with adapter) or the folding/collapsing stock from sig?
    or something else?

    If you want an acr, you should have got the ACR adapter from LIFE.

    The original wire stock from sig is my favorite but they're going for a premium now. The minimalist plus works well. The minimalist is a little too small for my personal taste. Not a fan of the folding/ collapsing sig offering. Kind of defeats the purpose some but the folding 1913 knuckle will let you go with any carbine AR stock.

    ETA: The ACR stock with, a pic rail adapter, on the pic rail mount is more pieces than you need. The LIFE ACR adapter will let you use the ACR attached directly to the "stock" mount on the xcr, removing an extra piece and reducing an already long LOP.

    i got the pic rail one cause the acr adapter is out of stock, and i figured pic rail was a better long term investment when more companies will eventually adopt it.

    I've heard a rumor that there's going to be some more ACR adapters. Their adapter is great and the ACR works well on the XCR

    I really like their PIC rail mount(I had a a hand in getting it made) and with the original Kate Moss stock I think it's a great combination.

    are you able to fold sig stocks to the right? all the photos show them folding to the left. which i think would be annoying with the xcr's charging handle

    You can flip the stocks to fold right. The longest sig version sits just behind the handle when folded. You won't be able to charge it with it folded though.

    Now that Bushmaster is no more, ACR stocks might be harder to come by.

    KDG is selling them for $180 but their stock goes quick. If you're an old balls xcrforum member, I might know a guy that can hook you up. Noobs can suck it.
