BCM introduces the Mod 0 SOPMOD Stock

Posted on February 16th, 2017 by ar15news

Bravo Company Mfg just introduced a new version of one of my favorite AR stocks. The new Mod 0 SOPMOD stock is very similar to the awesome BCM GUNFIGHTER stock but features a larger cheek weld area and still retains the original features of the GUNFIGHTER stock such as the VBOS Tab, ambi QD sling mounts, etc. I just got one of these new stocks and can’t wait to snag a couple more. Check out the press release and images below. The new BCM Mod 0 SOPMOD stock is instock now at www.BravoCompanyUSA.com for just $58.

BCM Mod 0 Sopmod Stock 2

BCM introduces the Mod 0 SOPMOD Stock, a drop-in replacement stock for the M4 Carbine, built to be lighter and more durable than base issue equipment with an enhanced contour for an improved cheek weld.

Delivering a consistent and stable platform, without sacrificing the clean snag free design of the Mod 0 Minimalist Stock released in 2014, the BCM Mod 0 SOPMOD Stock is a product of continued refinement based on end user feedback and close work with leading tactical and weapons manipulation instructors and the end users they prepare for going into harm’s way.

BCM Mod 0 Sopmod Stock 2

Both the BCMGUNFIGHTER™ Mod 0 SOPMOD and the Mod 0 Minimalist stocks feature a patented internal latch system*, a built-in buttpad, a VBOS(Vehicle Borne Operations Sling) Tab and both an ambidextrous QD interface port and web slot for sling interface.

BCM Mod 0 SOPMOD Stock 4

Like all BCM rifles and BCMGUNFIGHTER accessories, the Mod 0 Stocks are designed and made in the USA with the lightest and most durable materials to ensure components that last a lifetime.

Cool Stuff From SHOT Show 2017 – Phase 5 Universal Mini Stock

Posted on January 19th, 2017 by ar15news

Phase 5 Weapon Systems Inc, (Phase5WSI) introduced a few new products this year at SHOT Show 2017 but the one that really stood out the most was this awesome new AR buttstock called the UMS or Universal Mini Stock. The Universal Mini Stock is an ultra compact al metal stock that can be attached to virtually any buffer tube out there including standard carbine buffer tubes and many AR Pistol buffer tubes. This could come in really handy for guys running an AR Pistol buffer tube on their AR Pistol while waiting for the tax stamp to come in. Once their stamp comes in and the AR is registered as an SBR you can just add the UMS on instead of needing to remove the pistol buffer tube and install a carbine buffer tube that accepts a stock. Sounds like these are a couple months away from being available for purchase. Check out the video and picture below.

More Fortis Mfg LA-Stock GunPorn

Posted on December 22nd, 2016 by ar15news

A few days ago I shared a sneak peek at the new Fortis Mfg LA (Lever Action) Stock. At that time all I had was a few CAD Drawings of the stock which looked awesome but was still hard to tell what it was going to look like. NOW….now I have some hotness! My buddy David was allowed to borrow a prototype LA-Stock that had been finished and install it on a rifle. Your opportunity to win one of these beautiful stocks and some pics can be found below!!

The Fortis Mfg LA Stock shown in these photos is still considered a prototype as there are a few tweaks that they are working on but you get a really good idea of what will be officially released in 1st Quarter 2017. The LA-Stock will not be a polymer stock but is a high end all aluminum stock with some actual carbon fiber accents. These won’t be cheap but they’ll be competitive with other aluminum stocks.

**Sneak Peek** Fortis Mfg LA (Lever Action) Stock

Posted on December 6th, 2016 by ar15news

The guys at Fortis Manufacturing never stop! They are always looking at unique and innovative ways to improve or redesign parts for the AR. Their new LA Stock or Lever Action Stock is an all aluminum collapsible stock that can be adjusted using the handle that looks and moves much like a Lever Action rifle. Once you’ve adjusted the stock you use the Lever Action to clamp down on the buffer tube making for a stock with absolutely zero wobble. So far we just have computer generated photos which you can see below. I’ll be sure to update this article as more details and pictures become available.

fortis-la-stock

When designing our newest line to our Fortis family of products, we spent a lot of time thinking about the over all design and function of our buttstock. Lightweight? Of course, we helped start the change in the industry with our lightweight designs – but we also like our products to be robust and withstand the abuse we throw at it. Form as well as function each and every product we introduce – that’s Fortis.

fortis-la-stock-1

fortis-la-stock-1

Introducing our newest part – our aluminum butt stock, the Fortis LA™. It’s an all aluminum Lever Action (LA) stock that utilizes mil-spec buffer tubes. That’s right – slip off the plastic stock and upgrade your rifle immediately. The lever action is what clamps down onto the buffer tube so there’s no rattle or movement and our patent pending design is is one of a kind.

fortis-la-stock-3

Features:
–  Material: Aircraft Grade 6061-T6 Aluminum
–  Finish: Military Specification Type III Hard Coat Anodized
–  Fits standard milspec buffer tubes (not included)
–  Lever action tightens onto the buffer tube for robust grip and no rattle
–  Weight – TBD – but you won’t be disappointed
–  Made in the USA!

MVB Industries ARC PDW Stock for AR-10 Rifles

Posted on August 16th, 2016 by ar15news

While you don’t see them very often, there’s definitely something jaw dropping about an SBR’d AR-10. Our friends at MVB Industries, makers of very well known and popular ARC PDW stock, have just introduced an AR-10 version of the ARC PDW stock. Gotta admit, I wish I had SBR’d one of my AR-10’s now. 🙂 If you’ve got an AR-10, SBR or NOT, and are looking for an option to make it a bit more compact, the MVB Industries ARC stock for AR-10 is a cool new product to take a look at. 

MVB Industries Banner

MVB ARC 762.308 PDW Stock 1

MVB ARC 762.308 PDW Stock 1

Gared Von Benecke, President & CEO of MVB, stated: “By utilizing our patent pending buffer and spring system, that makes MVB’s ARC Stock the premier PDW Stock in the marketplace, the ARC Stock 7.62 NATO/.308 brings the benefits of short overall length and rapid deployment rifle to a full power battle rifle. When collapsed it’s 2 inches shorter than a standard collapsed carbine stock, the size of this rifle platform has allowed for a full 5 inches of extension, resulting in an extended length equal to a Mil-Spec A2 rifle stock. The all-metal construction delivers extreme reliability and durability based on the quality raw materials precision machined to tight tolerances. Aluminum parts are Type III Mil-Spec Hard Anodized with the same specification as US Military rifle receivers. Steel components, primarily high strength 17-4 stainless steel, are heat treated and black nitrided for optimal strength, wear resistance, and smooth operation.”

There are quite a few “PDW” style stocks on the market for the AR-15 right now. Most, if not all of them, use a shorter buffer tube setup with a modified buffer and spring to shorten the overall length of the stock which is what makes them great for use on a PDW (Personal Defense Weapon). Unfortunately, most of the PDW stocks on the market add multiple steps to disassemble the weapon and in some cases even require that you use a specific BCG. There are very few options out there that are truly drop-in setups that allow you to “shotgun” your upper and use any BCG you want. The new X Products R.O.C. (Rapid Operation Carbine) PDW Stock does just that allowing you to use any BCG you want “shotgun” your upper with out removing the front pivot pin or locking the buffer back. A couple of additional things to note is that it weights just 17.6 ounces and can be used on 9mm ARs, Direct Impingement and Piston systems. What’s even crazier…the price point is $350 with an intro price of just $289.95.

Check out the pics and details below. These are in-stock now at www.XProducts.com.

MVB Industries Independence Day Sale

Magpul recently released info on the new PRS (Precision Rifle Stock) Gen2 that will be released later this summer. Its always nice to see new models of very popular products come out but it also means its time to look for some good deals on the Gen1 parts if you like them. Personally I love the PRS Gen1 stock and have a couple myself and now I might have to stockpile a few of them for future builds because I just got an email from Rainier Arms letting me know they have all of their Magpul PRS Gen1 stocks for both AR-15 and AR-10 on sale. When you go to the site it shows the usual $242.25 price but if you add it to your cart the price drops down to just $193.80 for an AR-15 or AR-10 version. That’s a smoking deal for an awesome stock. I just ordered an AR-10 version for one of my rifles and most likely will snag another couple AR-15 models for future use. Just passing along the savings to my friends.
