You wont be sorry, just keep the stock it comes with. I love the way my repro paratrooper looks. It is not as easy/acurate to shoot as a full stock.Looks like CMP is REAL busy right now but my paperwork is in and I am in line. There have been some good points made on both sides here but I think that USGI is the way to go. A repo para stock should do the trick although I hear that fitting an individual stock to a gun can sometimes be an issue. The AOs I have seen looked good but I have also heard that there have been issues. Thanks for everyones input.
