I couldn't find any information about the Madbull Ace SOCOM stock compatibility with the KWA SR7.

Here is a link to the product: http://www.evike.com...oducts_id=30409

Does anyone have any experience with it? Such as installation, battery fitment, etc.
Thanks, guys!

The fine print for the product on the website specifies that it won't fit KWAs without modification. So at this point the question is what type of mods are required.

All of the madbull ace stocks require relatively heavy mods if I remember correctly.  I asked about them before, someone has a few on their KWAs.  Niko or gcw I know one of you guys can help out here lol I forget who.

I have the newest Madbull Ace SOCOM Stock fitted to my SR-12. It's going to take a bit of dremeling on the lower receiver extension tube, I also had to cut mine to M4 length. But it can be done.The problem is that there's an elevated section of material on the extension tube near the lower. You have to grind ALL off. It took a while. But after having the SOCOM stock, the design is absolute garbage. The thing rattled like crazy and scuffed up the buffer tube really bad. So I made a semi-permanent fix with some tape. I have it set to the maximum extension length and it doesn't wobble a millimeter in any direction, but can't be adjusted. I'm thinking about modding it to fit my LM4, that'll be a real challenge. But overall I can't recommend that stock to you if you're planning on using it like intended, unless having the unique gun is very important to you. You'd probably be better off just picking up some variation of the Magpul stock.

it does require a good amount of time to install the SOCOM corretly and you will have to cut the lower receiver extension tube about 2 inches or so.  Also I had to dremel and sand the extension tube down to make the SOCOM buffer tube fit.  Not to mention widening the opening for that buffer tube.  If I had to do it again I would go with something else considering the amount of time and headaches that I had to deal with.

Gun is looking good, niko.

Havn't heard much from you on the forums lately.
