Las Vegas – -(AmmoLand.com)- A modular helmet buttstock which can be adjusted around any public order/ballistic helmet visor is set to be a hit at this year’s SHOT Show in Las Vegas (Sands, Expo Center 22-25 Jan 2019).
Riot and ballistic face shields are essential for law enforcement officers in active shooter and riot control scenarios. The problem with these face shields is that once fully lowered they interfere with the tactical rifles and/or less-lethal baton round guns that armed officers are equipped with.
164-year-old specialist equipment manufacturers, BCB International Ltd, have brought to market the FRAMM®; an adjustable and foldable stock that allows firearms officers to comfortably shoulder, aim and discharge their firearms in all firing positions.
BCB International’s FRAMM® Project Manager, Philippe Minchin, said: “Since production was launched in late 2018, orders have been received from elite tactical units for the FRAMM®. There are multiple variants of the stock to fit onto most in-service firearms. It offers multiple position settings to conform to anybody and ballistic visor shapes. Its rubberized non-slip stock pad maximizes comfort and firing stability
“The FRAMM® is not your typical helmet rifle buttstock. It removes the need for both non-visored and visored officers to have to alternate between buttstocks to fit the situation they are faced with. At a press of a button, the FRAMM® enables an officer to switch from a classic straight alignment to a lowered setting of their choosing thereby eliminating the risk of their helmet visors or respirator masks interfering with the shouldering, aiming and firing of their weapon. The FRAMM® is the modular stock to suit all their mission requirements.”
Production has been launched for the H&K G36, B&T 40×46 and HK-UMP variants of the stock.
Production of FRAMM variants for the following firearms is planned in the near future: FN HERSTAL-SCAR, HK-MP5 A2, BERETTA-ARX 160, HK-MP5K-PDW, REMINGTON-ACR, CZ-805 A1 BREN, SIG SAUER-550/551.., SIG SAUER MCX, B&T-APC556
BCB International Ltd will have the FRAMM® stock on display at booth 7613. For more information visit: http://bcbin.com/product/framm-weapon-stock/
