Default AR wood stocks

I was sitting down doing my best thinking, and realized I never saw an AR wood stock. It would be a good counter against the antigunners, make the piece not so evil and menacing, ya know? So I got on Google images, and saw some nice sexy ones: natural, laminate, even free floated foregrips. Anyone have one, has shot one, etc? Is there any disadvantages, as in being too bulky or thin to support around the recoil spring?

He is very thorough, but also very monotone/dull. At the end of the videos (and a bit a FF) I don't much like the wood look. It really looks "cheaper." Like a half assed AK I'm seeing on shelves these days. (Well not that bad, some of those look like they were finished with 80 grit paper). To each his own.

Actually they only do it for AK and SKS rifles. For a BEAUTIFUL looking wood stocked AR, check out Turnbull Mfg. They make a wood stocked, color case hardened, AR in both .223 and .308. I believe they they are called the TAR-15 and TAR-10.

How about plum ar furniture? I couldn't find any pictures so I don't know if it would look as good as it does on an ak, but it might be cool.

That looked like a winner until I saw the $2500 price tag, with a $300 upgrade for wood -eeek-. Then I saw they were from new York state, which I boycott because of the politics.

Thanks everyone for the info, if any more arises feel free to post more.

Hmmm I was 100% sure they did it for AR's as well. But now I see that you are right, Timbersmith doesn't make AR wood furniture... but I have seen it available somewhere....

Search ar wood. I've got a set on my rifle length varmit gun. They also make a set for the shorter carbine, still fixed stock not adjustable. When I get back to the computer ill up a link.
