FAL Para - ACR Stock Adapter Sales Thread - Second Run, Both Low And High Adapters

Due to financial and time constraints the project is being put on indefinite hold. If you have sent in a deposit, please PM me if you would like a refund. I may transfer the project to someone else if they wish to pick up where I left off or I may resume it at a later date, but when that will be is unknown at this time.

Sorry.

Which adapter would work best for me

tbasmwmc

I have a DSA Para with a Hampton Lower. I am wonder which adapter would work best for this lower. Is the low adapter usable on a DSA Para lower or only the high adapter will work on my Para lower?

If you wish to continue using your iron sights, I would recommend getting the LOW adapter.

Tom, question for you:

Are you going to make the low adapter mate up top and bottom on the receiver, like the high adapter, just figuring out a way to make it work with the iron sights, etc, or are you going to drop it down like that picture at the top?

Thanks,

I bought one of your high adapters and was planning on buying a low adapter for my one metric Para but I'm still on the fence as to whether I'll keep it or sell it.

I like the Scar 17 but the stock does feel kind of flimsy compared to the ACR stock. Just my opinion.

The idea is to drop it down in the picture and adjust the hole for the bolt and the tab that engages the lower accordingly, as well as round off the edge on the bottom.

OK, I get it. You wouldn't happen to have a spare SCAR 17 stock hinge laying around, would you?

It may be because of the drop it will have. That's why I'm not up for the low-mount, I just don't like the idea of a drop from the receiver to the bottom of the stock. I understand that's what makes it "low", but I like my high mount enough to just be happy with that.

I like the look of the drop for the low adampter and being able to use the original iorns is a big plus IMHO.

I have a high one too that I bought from another member with his lower and its fine if you choose to run all new top cover and furniture with it. The low is not intended for that role.

Running the high adapter you have to either have a Picatinny lower receiver or you have to remove the rear sights (leave them off or replace it with a flip-up para sight). I have a Picatinny dust cover and simply removed the rear iron sight post, no need for iron sights with the red dot I put on it. I'll probably pick up a para flip sight some day for it so that it looks better, but functionally I don't use them, since they're blocked by the red dot.

It'll be interesting to see how they turn out.

Sent in a deposit for a low adapter. Looks great, I hope between the adapter and the adjustable cheek piece on the stock, that it will be a great solution to the iron sights/EoTech on my Hampton lower.

Found an ACR Stock

Finally found one on GB!! This guy had it attached to the pistol grip of a UMP clone. My quest is at an end!

OK, Let's go for a low adapter! I was soooooo close to getting in on the first run, but the high adapter just wouldn't work as I'd have wished. On my way to make a deposit.

i bought one of these high adapters and i can attest to the quality - the build is very good. I haven't been able to find an ACR stock anywhere...submitted an order to Bushmaster and haven't heard a thing - no confirmation email, no credit card charge. anyone know a way to find one?
