switching to a rifle with a pistol grip does take some adjustment.

like everything else - practice makes perfect and is the only way to develop muscle memory.

may wish to consider a visible level to put onto your gun (or optic) to help you get used to getting rid of any cant.

hand placement and how you hold the pistol grip play a big part in the correction - that pistol grip hanging down is a very leverage heavy point for the vertical index of your firearm..

treat it more like good hangdun fundamentals and things will fall into play a bit easier.

i know that when i fixed my grip related accuracy problems for my handgun, my long gun accuracy increased significantly. much like with a handgun - if you do everything else but your trigger pull and grip position on the gun sucks - the results you get are going to follow right along.

Thanks for your help .


What type buttstock are your using? Fixed or adjustable? Adjusting your cheek weld might be a factor.

The Magpul CTR/MOE stocks have an adjustable cheek weld option with 3 different heights of cheek risers.

There are several others that have an integral adjustable cheek riser.

make sure whatever version you select doesnt interfere with the operation of the charging handle. a very real consideration when adding stuff to the stock of an ar15, both adjustable and not. also something us folks with pistols have to take into consideration when selecting something to use as a buffer tube sleeve (that metal gets cold when its chilly outside - especailly when rested against the side of your face!)


larue makes one that moves with the CH, but thats for an adjustable stock model (CTR) which will require replacing your buffer tube, spring and buffer assembly along with the need to purchase a CTR stock.

Get a cantlever-Weaver if still available for about $40 as opposed to $80 for those labelled 223 something. Probably Chinese
