Newbie question on stock swaps

Hi Guys;
Long time 1911 guy here, but a total newcomer to ARs. I picked up a LE6920 from Wally World when they were getting out of the AR business and still have not taken it out of the box yet. I have an A4 that I shoot occasionally. I want to install an A4 style solid stock on the LE6920. My questions are (1) Where can I find one? and (2) What other parts will I need? Will the buffer and spring in the collapsible stock work with the solid stock?
Thanks and Best Regards,
Tom

A collapsable buffer tube is not the same nor will you need the sling swivel.

I have shorter arms than a lot of shooters, so I prefer the A1 stock over the A2. Fulton has A1's, both USGI and newly manufactured commercial ones.

Just FYI

Before changing anything, go shoot the rifle. It may be that you will like the rifle as is, or that you discover that the stock you want is something other than the A4. What stock works also depends on configuration. While I liked tv's A4 stock on a 20" HBar, I don't like it on a 16" carbine. But I didn't find that out until I started shooting ARs.

You can install the 6920 upper on your A4 lower and see how it shoots. Ammo before accessories. Shoot Before modifying. It'll save you money and heartache in the long run

The original solid stock is an inch shorter than the A1 as well.
