  • Nick

    The fact that this is considered minimal just go’s to illustrate how over-designed most AR stocks are.

  • gunslinger

    mil-spec or commercial buffer?

    • Matel Onely

      Per their website they make both.

  • allannon

    Interesting, but I think I’d pay the ounce or so for a strut running from the tube to the end of the butt, for a bit of extra support.

    • Clint Notestine

      ive got that version and its nice a solid

    • Laserbait


  • Heres another picture of it.

      They wouldn’t need a lightweight stock if they would take off all that other crap. 😀

  • Joshua

    All I see is one giant snag hazard.

  • Lance

    Also fits ugliest stock too.

    It looks cool, but I would never, ever, ever put that stock on a gun I planned to use anywhere but a range.

    Because it’s a hook. It’s a huge hook. It will grab seatbelts of cop cars, backpacks of soldiers, treebranches of hunters and who knows what else. That’s what hooks do.

    • Julio

      Exceptionally well put!

      I’m with Brandon on the weight/balance thing too.

    • Beju

      Excellent point. The last thing I need before/after a left-hand transition is my stock snagging my radio cord.

    Loved to see try this out as a possible better option than the ACE ARUL-E for featureless builds because of the stubborn stupidity that keeps me here in California.

    WIshing Magpul’s MOE Fixed Carbine Stock would’ve been a good option, but just the standard MOE stock pinned on the 2nd or 3rd position works out better because of the usable grip space left over from the lack of the pistol grip (a.k.a. Evil Feature).

    I hate California.

  • Brandon

    I actually like a little weight back there to balance it out a bit.

  • Jorge Da Silva

    I have it. Its well built & tight. Feels good on the shoulder provides a good balance. as far as catching on stuff…trolls

      It’s funny, the people that dismiss this stock based on a picture have 20 upvotes, but the person that actually has one and dismisses the wild assumptions of it’s functionality has none. Hmmmm.

  • DAZE

    Nice hook/cane handle……..

  • 1911a145acp

    It would be better to actually use the product before passing judgement. My pocket clip knives snag on things as well – but their advantages and utility far outweigh the slight inconvenience of un-snagging them……
