Anyone know where I can get a Colt collapsible stock for my M4 to replace the fixed one if the AWB sunsets? I have seen RRA and a couple of others but I prefer to stick with Colt. I looked on the Colt site and didn't see anything and I also googled for it.

And if that's a little steep for you, you can get a Mil-spec version from most of the AR rifle makers like Bushmaster, Eagle Arms, and Armalite.

Bushmaster sells several versions, price....$100.00

Brownell's sells several versions, including an original CAR type made of aluminum for $100.00 and a Fiber-rite version for $66.00, AND they list the Colt collapsible stock for the AR-15 Government Carbine for $60.00

I see it at Brownell's for $89 with my discount. $112 regular price. That is what I am looking for. Don't know why I couldn't find it before. Thanks all.

Now, for a different question--what is involved in changing the muzzle brake on my post ban M4 to a real flash suppressor. Can a 'smith do it without making the barrel too short.

Can't wait until 9/14...

Depends on how the brake is atatched, and if the muzzle is threaded. If the muzzle is threaded, and the brake is just spot-welded on, you could easily do it yourself.

I think the brake has a pin. According to a friend that I just finished discussing this with, I should be able to remove the pin and screw off the brake and screw on a flash suppressor. Guess I won't know for sure unless I remove that pin unless someone knows for sure on Colts.

Bushmaster, EA, Armalite, ect. Don't make a milspec col stock. Their tubes are too large. If you install one of their col stocks on an actual mil-spec tube it will rattle all over the place.

If you have the available funds I say go with a better stock such as a vltor or a LMT crane replica or possibly a MAGPUL. It will be an upgrade you wont have to make down the road, and you will have a better stock.
I have handled the cheaper stuff (Cav Arms, Bushy teles) at gunshows and whatnot, and I will say it just doesen't compare. Even the buffer tube felt cheaper... :(

A forged receiver extension, plus a super tight rattle free modular stock for $179 are what you get when you purchase VLTOR. Its the entry level model in the superstocks category. In this case I think many will say it is of better quality (obviously) than an actual colt col stock.
