I'm at a crossroad and I'm a little stuck on what to do. I've never had problems finding rifles that fit me. I'm 6'3" and most adult sized rifles fit fairly well. The AR platform is one of those that fit well, especially with the standard 6 position carbine stock. My problem comes with my soon to be brother-in-law. He is basically the size of Shaq. He's 7 foot tall and watching him shoot an AR is painful. Now, with a bit of training I'm sure he could get behind the AR in a fighting type stance where the typical person is running the stock one or two notches from all the way in. The problem is he isn't a fighter, has no interest in tactical training, and is for all intents and purposes he is a casual shooter. Trying to force him into that type of stance isn't natural and is something I'm afraid will push him further from shooting rather than more into shooting. I'm looking to help him pick out a fun rifle, something to shoot once a month for an hour or two and then put back in the safe. I think he would have more fun with one of the 7.62x54R semi auto rifles, though I'm not sure if they are going to be big enough on the LOP to fit him and I'm not sure what options are out there. I know he enjoys a bit of recoil, so I was thinking something .308 or 7.62x54r would be a better fit. Not quite as cheap as a .223 but for his limited range time, it wouldn't much matter. So what are some good options? Are there any extra length AR-10 stocks? I suppose one of the competition style stock extenders on an A2 stock would get him some extra LOP. How about for the 7.62x54, or even x39 rifles? Anything that gets them to Shaq size setups? A nice AK pattern rifle would be good too if I can get the size right. Really, anything that goes bang fairly reliably and has a bit of kick is going to work if it fits and ammo isn't outrageous (in non-panic times).
