Buttstocks From the Black Guns 2015 Buyer’s Guide

Rock-solid buttstocks for better AR handling, performance and comfort!

AR-platform rifles are easy to modify, allowing a shooter to configure his or her weapon to fit individual needs or specific scenarios. Swapping out a stock on a lower receiver is one of the easiest components to change on the rifle or carbine, and there are dozens of stock offerings on the market.

AR stock designs have come a long way since the original, old-school M16A2 fixed stock. If you’re a smaller-statured shooter or need to wear a lot of clothing/gear, consider a collapsible stock. A fixed stock might make sense if you’re shooting long range and have the time to settle in for a long shot and do not require extra maneuverability. Remember that the lower receiver is the part of the AR regulated and considered the firearm by federal law. When making modifications, makes sure they abide your state and local laws.

 

Ace Hammer

BG 2015 buttstock ACE

Ace Hammer

The Hammer (HMR) stock from Ace Ltd. is touted as the world’s strongest AR stock. It is machined from heat-treated, aircraft-grade aluminum and is tough and rugged while being completely user adjustable.

The seven length-of-pull positions are laser-etched onto the main tube. The tube uses a spring-loaded ball bearing to ensure collapsing and expanding the stock is smooth and effortless. The cheekpiece is also adjustable for height so a user can customize it to their stature and optic. (riflestocks.com; 888-736-7725)

 

BCM Gunfighter

BG 2015 buttstock BCM

BCM Gunfighter

The new BCM Gunfighter Stock is an improvement on the M4 units BCM currently sells. Featuring a streamlined, snag-free design, this new stock still fits all milspec size buffer tubes and doesn’t need the additional external tension adjustment that other units do.

A large adjustment latch runs over half the length of the underside, making adjustments easy. BCM patented the internals, with the main locking piece made from a heat-treated steel alloy, as compared to the more typical single pin found in other adjustable stocks.

DPMS Pardus

BG 2015 buttstock DPMS

DPMS Pardus

DPMS’ Pardus collapsible AR stock is constructed of lightweight, fiber-reinforced Zytel polymer and comes in an all-business black finish. Unlike other AR buttplates, the Pardus buttplate is curved and has a saw-tooth texture so it will stay tucked into a user’s shoulder pocket.

A Monte Carlo-style cheekrest offers more shooting comfort. Four integrated slots allow numerous sling attachment options. Users can adjust the length of pull via an ergonomic latch that has built-in finger grooves. (dpmsinc.com; 888-736-7725)
