    Well if that's an M4 length only and have no plans of heavy upgrades that requires having large battery then go for crane stock. Usually, full stock are for full length rifle like M16 / SR variants.

    I presumed you're eying for an M4 variant.

    I personally have had both an m4 and an m16, and the full stock on the m16 has been so much nicer, for you can do a lot more with it, plus it's a lot sturdier generally. But it can be a problem if you have short arms.

    I like my folding crane. It allows for much better cq combat that way. However, if you like the long range side of the m4, then get the full one.

    Crane stock for the win! If you get one of the crane stocks that can house batteries there's really no disadvantage imo.

    Crane stocks for the fact that you can go full sized to shortened in a matter of a second.
    Houses a battery without it bouncing around inside an open container.
    Can house multiple batteries (Lipo).
    Makes storage a bit easier.
    Adjustable but still sturdy.

    I like Full Stocks because "it just works". If you're eyeing a rifle-type AEG like M16: Full-Stocks adds is a +10 swag factor.
