I ran across this last night while surfing the web. FAB Defense, suppliers to the Israeli Police, Military and Special Forces, just introduced a new buttstock that will be available very soon. It’s called the FAB Defense GL-MAG M4 Survival Buttstock. You might be wondering what makes it a “Survival” buttstock. Well, they’ve incorporated an M4 Mag Carrier right into the rear of the buttstock. Its intended for a 10 round mag due to its smaller size and lighter weight when loaded. This is a pretty sweet design concept for the buttstock. When the time comes that you need your gun you never want to run out of ammo and this gives you just one more place to keep some. From what I understand it will also accept 20 and 3o round mags as well but I think the 30 rounders would be a bit to long and would just get in the way. Check out the pics and specs below.
