Angstadt Arms Releases the Shortest AR-15 Stock System

U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- In September 2018, the U.S. Army awarded Angstadt Arms a contract to supply ultra concealable 9mm sub-machine guns for the purpose of protecting high risk personnel (HRP). To address this operational need, personnel security detail required a weapon with greater lethality than pistols but more conceal-ability than rifles.

The ultimate objective being a highly concealable Sub Compact Weapon (SCW) system capable of “engaging threat personnel with a high volume of lethal force while accurately firing at close range with minimal collateral damage.”

The SCW Stock system is what allowed our SCW-9 sub-machine gun to achieve an overall length of just 14.7″ without sacrificing barrel length or a standard muzzle device.

  • Truly Sub Compact – The collapsed length of the sub compact weapon stock is just 2.5″. Allowing your rifle to travel inside smaller, more discreet bags.
  • Multi-Caliber Compatible – 5.56 NATO, .300 Blackout and 9mm configurations available.
  • Upper Receiver Single Rail System – Unlike other PDW stocks the single rail on the SCW stock is positioned alongside the upper receiver. This provides added clearance above the safety selector switch resulting in faster manipulation and safer use.
  • Faster Deployment – The stock can be opened without pressing a button. Just grab the stock and pull back.

Currently the SCW platform is classified as a rifle stock and should only be attached to an ATF approved short barrel rifle (SBR) or a full size rifle with a 16″ barrel. There is also currently a pistol brace version of the SCW Stock in development, however, we do not have an ETA on the pistol brace version as it is requires ATF approval.

    1. You liberals do realise that most LEOs will not comply with orders to strip law abiding citizens of OUR weapons..with that said, it seems all the liberals and leftist will have to carry out this great endeavor YOURSELVES, using the vary AMENDMENT you wish to abolish. YOU WILL NEVER SUCCEEDED!! Sincerely, The American Patriot

      1. People have died in raids from Extreme Risk Protection Orders….so don’t tell us LEO will not take our guns….they will follow orders.

        1. Not true, as a LEO I will NOT nor will any of the officers I work with follow any order given to go door to door and confiscate anyone firearms.

        2. There is a difference between an ERPO and going door to door to confiscate weapons from law abiding citizens that have the right under our US Constitution to keep such weapons. I do not believe that EVERYONE has the 2nd Amendment rights as those who willingly break our laws should not be in any way protected by our constitutional rights. Also, if a person is deemed by a medical professional to not be able to abide by these laws for the protection of the people, we have no choice but to remove the means of hurting the people. With that said, that is where it ends! I served and fought for my country for 20 years because I believe in our rights and privileges we enjoy as citizens of this country and I will be damned if I am willing to sit back and let a bunch of liberals and useless politicians hack away at our given rights. What people seem to forget is the 2nd Amendment was not established to simply protect our homes from evil people, but to also allow the people the right to have a civilian militia to protect the people from an overbearing government bent on dictatorship! By the government establishing laws to disarm the people, they are getting rid of our means to protect ourselves from them!

    4. What kind of ammo will this use? I thought a rifle round needs a longer barrel for higher velocity or does it not matter?

      1. Depends on the ranges involved. There are vids on YouTube of 5.56 out of a 7.5″ barrel penetrating L3 soft body armor at 25m where 9mm will not. It won’t tumble or fracture at that low of velocity as it does out of longer barrel but it’s better that not penetrating at all.
