LUTH-AR Stocks

LUTH-AR stock

Randy E. Luth, the founder of D.P.M.S./Panther Arms, founded a company called LUTH-AR.  LUTH-AR will be making accessories and other products for AR-style firearms.  The first two products from LUTH-AR are a pair of buttstocks:  the MBA-1 and MBA-2.

LUTH-AR stock

The MBA-1 is a fixed, not telescoping, buttstock with adjustments for cheek rise and length of pull.  The LOP can be adjusted for an additional 1 1/16″ with the use of an extended length buttplate.  The cheek rest has a 1″ height adjustment and can be used on the right or left side of the gun.

According to LUTH-AR, the stock is interchangeable with standard A1- and A2-type buttstocks, but not with “carbine rifles with telescoping assemblies.”  MSRP is $139.95.

“Skullaton” is the alternate name for the MBA-2.  As the name suggests, it is a skeletonized buttstock that weighs in at 0.7 lbs.  As with the MBA-1, this stock is listed as interchangeable with A1 and A2 stocks.  MSRP is $49.95.

Thanks to Matthew for the tip.

    I like the look of those, and you can’t complain about the price.

    • Paladin

      You underestimate my ability to complain.

      It should cost $5 and come in all the colors of the tacti-cool rainbow.

          Telling me I can’t just makes me want to do it more, I’m just that kinda guy 😀

    So…a skeletonized PRS, and a polymer competitor for the ACE and MOE ultralight stocks.

  • Nicks87

    Durability would be my biggest concern. I smell review coming… hint, hint, TFB?

  • DougE

    It has a very similar profile to the Magpul PRS stock. Is this new company in any danger of a lawsuit?

    These look like good products. I was pleased to find an international order form on their website too. But then it turned out they don’t ship internationally. I don’t hold this against them, but I wish they, and other firms would modify the way their online order process is set up so that it doesn’t mislead potential customers in this way.

    DPSM is at the bottom of the pile. I wouldn’t trust any product associated with them including a shared owner

    Please do a review of these stocks, at least the mba-2.

    I just received my MBA-1 and installed it on my DPMS LR-308. I haven’t had a chance to fire it yet, but it seems solid enough for a skeletonized stock. It’s definitely an improvement over the original fixed stock. It has a great range of adjustment, just don’t expect the ease you get out of a PRS. Rather than click adjustments, the MBA-1 uses traditional thumb screws and sliding parts. Unscrew the knob too far and it comes out completely and the opposing nut falls out. I’m looking forward to taking it to the range once it warms up here to see how it holds up, but I’m optimistic as the material seems quite durable. This seems like a great stock for the price, and I’m always happy to support a company from my home state.
