Strike Industries has always pushed the envelope on the innovation. This time they are releasing a new 7 position buffer tube for a more fine tuned LOP adjustment. As someone who shoots both with and without body armor, I often find myself adjusting my LOP to account for my armor. But my stock collapsed for my armor always feels a little short.
The new buffer tube is also longer on the last notch then a standard M16A2 stock for people with a really long LOP. Although being a big guy myself, I never find myself at full extension and prefer a shorter LOP.
I have always been a fan of SI and what they make. They really are a company that blows the lid off of innovating for different platforms. Check out their press release and info sheet below for more info.

The tube’s shortest length of pull position is as compact as a fully collapsed M4 carbine butt stock while its longest 7th position stretches the stock to be slightly longer than that of an M16A2 fixed stock. Our end plate is jam packed with loads of features. The first one being a quick detach (QD) build into it for true ambidextrous shooting.
