Great piece for that HEAVY RECOILING 5.56/.223 ! The media will transform this to an “POWERFUL assault weapon with so much power it needs a recoil reducing stock added”. The Feds will say it adds to the “bumpfire” configuration cause it can BOUNCE….
Just sayin…..


PTSD for 24 hours per round!


From the picture I’d say it “could be” a means for the shooter to enhance trigger cycle time. Ok with me. After seeing Jerry Miculek run an AK dry with mag dump time very close to full auto time I’d say such a device may be redundant.


If you say so snowflake.

I have one of their stocks with the extra mag storage.
I like it, always an extra 10 or 20 rd mag onboard.

looks nice but i would like to be able try it on my AR, before I buy it. I like the design and innovation and the SOPMOD style cheek rest, looks kinda like it has storage tubes, like the B5 systems SOPMOD does. The only complaint I truly have at this time is the price it outrageous not for a poor that is for sure.

I’d have to see this. The stick would need to flex which isn’t a good thing to me
