If you don't mind the weight, the Magpul PRS is good. Adjustable comb and length of pull, and not a telescoping stock.

Just sucks it's around 2.5lbs.

for a distance shooter you want the weight for the added stability and the prs you can dial in for your personal fit

once you set it for YOUR length of pull that comfortable for you to shoot it whats it matter if it adjusts, esp. for a long range gun. If friends shooting it aren't as comfortable shooting at my length of pull to bad its my rifle not theirs. Even my PRS other then the cheek risor, I haven't adjusted it since a initially set it.

Magpul PRS is a good choice. If you are shooting a long range probably you have a heavier barrel so some extra weight in the back is a good thing.
Look also at the whitley stock very popular in HP competitions and also the XLR but will need the end plate and some locktite.
For me the PRS is great because it is very good quality polymer, so easy to adjust and I like the little bit of extra weight on the lowers I use for
the heavy barrels.

It does have an adjustable length of pull so some people aren't comfortable with it on a post ban receiver. The law says "telescoping or folding" which it is neither but I'm not a DA or LEO so what do I know.

Well it is not "collapsible", those are the trouble ones. The PRS are sold by gunsmiths in NY to high power shooters like those others I mentioned. They all have the adjustable LOP feature some you need a tool some you just a little wheel but they all are sold as NY legal.
I think the confusion is what scares people away. I have three lowers with PRS and might have another one in the future. I love them all and others who tried them say they can shoot better with them. It has a lot of adjustment travel and it will bring your sighting to the proper position whatever your complexity is. If you are close to Penfield and want to try one one before you commit I am happy to bring a lower out one day.

What makes people thing it's trouble is everyone throwing the word "collapsible" around. The law doesn't say collapsible, it says telescoping or folding but people are always saying collapsible.

What about the standard a2 stock and the 3.5lb insert for it. Or you could always do what I just did to one of mine and fill it with fiberglass. It added some rigidity and a little weight to it.

I would throw a A2 on a $800.00 plinker,but not on the $2k+ LR AR I am cooking up......This baby is really going to be something special,I am going to be buried with this rifle......HaHa.....Although I am sure there are laws against that like everything else....

..I am no lawyer or DA but that is how they are sold all over as "collapsible" stocks vs "adjustable" ones.... you know that little thingy that you pull and they go up and down like a trombone. I think telescoping sounds better for lawmakers and paper pushers but it is the same, I think.
Again just my opinion so everyone should read the law, you are right about that.

At midway, if I look for collapsible stock this is what I get....
MOE Buttstock Collapsible AR-15 Carbine Synthetic

If I look for adjustable stock this is typically what I get...
AX Chassis System (AX AICS) Folding Adjustable Stock Remington 700 Short Action Black

If I look for telescoping stock I get only a few entries like this...
Enhanced 7-Position Telescoping Side Folding Buttstock ACR Synthetic Black

Only the ones in the "collapsible" and "telescoping" searches are the ones that everyone knows must be pinned.
The biggest list (by a huge stretch) of stocks at must be pinned resulted in looking for collapsible stocks and not telescoping ones.

There's also the Choate E2, which is an economical way to add offhand support, and it can still accept weights.
