The CA M15 Crane Stock will work with most brands of M16 series rifles, however modification maybe required. The crane stock design is the best way to disguise the battery wiring and have a balanced rifle. The stock retracts 5 positions and comes with necessary mounting equipment.

This seems to be a good stock. However, I'm giving it 4/5 because of the installation that was required. I put this on my CA M15A4 SPC, and totally underestimated the amount of modding needed to my gun's lower receiver. I figured that getting a stock made by the same brand would be less labor.
Something that was annoying is that it didn't come with a manual to help with the installation. What I had to do to get this to fit was drilling a whole a couple of centimeters away from the body in the lower receiver's buffer tube(not the buffer tube of the stock), cutting off the male battery connecter on the body, cutting the female end of the supplied wire(make sure you cut the correct end off so it correctly mates with the battery), and then soldering the two together to make a longer wire, once I passed the smaller wires through the whole that I drilled.
As yo can see, be prepared to drill, cut, and solder to get this to work. However, now that I have it on, I think its great. It's far superior than the M16 stock. Although I do think it's a little pricey given the amount of work required, and the material used. I also currently have a 9.6v 4200mah inside the stock which is a little tight when it is collapsed.
Comfortable and practical, especially for battery storage.
Moderately difficult to install.

The only thing I can complain about is how difficult it is to install the battery. If you don't get it just right you wont be able to collapse the stock, but once u get the battery in its amazing and can contract and expand to every position. I would definitely buy this stock over the cheaper ones if you have the money, the durability and sturdiness is amazing. Sure beats having a PEQ or cramming a small battery in the grip.
I have a 9.6V 3600MAH NIMH battery in mine and its fits fine, its hard to get in but once in it fits great no crimped wires or anything.
