Looking for a lead buttstock weight that fits into the cleaning kit compartment for an AR15 A2 service rifle.

I AM NOT LOOKING FOR LINKS TO WEBSITES SELLING THIS ITEM. I am asking for someone on this forum who actually has one in their possession that they would like to sell/trade.

I have lots of 1911 parts for trade, MSH's, hammers, safeties, magazines, etc.

I've got a Magpul fixed stock that has been poured full of lead, used to be on my 6mm Fat Rat custom AR. Let me know if you're interested, it's quite heavy.

A short term fix is to dump some lead hand gun bullets into a sock and stuff that in the buttstock. Easier to adjust the weight for the balance point than sawing the lead wedge.

Great idea, thanks!

If you use the loose bullets/sock method, it would have the added benefit of acting like a dead blow hammer and dampen felt recoil even more than just adding weight.....maybe.

Use lead shot (ask a friendly shotgun shell reloader) in a sock or small bag.

Not all A2 butt compartments are the same dimensions.  I have encountered at least 2 different sizes.  I believe you should try some weight, fore & aft, and then try it without.  For awhile I had one of my Heavy Barrel AR15's up to 18 pounds.  I eventually pulled it all out.

I'm not sure if you found what you were looking for but I dug mine out of hiding. I have both the butt stock and handguard pieces. Let me know if you still need either of both.

I tied up lead shotgun shot in a stocking-style sock that I bummed off the wife. Works like a charm.

I did the bullets in a sock trick and it worked beautifully.
