UTG Introduces PRO S2 Recon Stock & Assembly

2234832

UTG/Leapers has released their PRO S2 Recon stock and assembly. The new S2 is made in the USA. The new S2 is a slimmer and lighter version of the full-size S1 stock released not long ago.┬áCompatible with MIL-Spec buffer tubes, the stock is capable of a 7.5″ Length of Pull when collapsed and is compatible with all positions on the buffer tube.

Interestingly, the stock features an angled front to provide a seamless look for the MSR when in the fully collapsed position. It also features ambi sling loops and Q/D cups.

In my opinion the most attractive part of the stock is the price. Retail is just $36.97 or $69.97 for a completed assembly including end plate, castle nut, buffer tube, spring, and buffer. This a strong price competing with similar low-cost options from Magpul and others.

UTG PRO US Made Mil-spec S2 Recon Stock & Assembly

Customers agree that UTG PRO’s US Made rifle stocks are among the finest in the industry. The absence of injection molding pin marks or rough edges, along with tight tolerance controls and appealing overall design leave little room for further wants.

After the recent successful launch of the S1 full size stock, UTG PRO has created the new S2 Recon version, a lighter and slimmer alternative. Designed to improve handling while combating fatigue, the S2 Recon is the epitome of a sturdy, lightweight, and durable modern AR stock.

Although originally designed for AR type carbines, the S2 Recon makes for an equally impressive stock on modified AKs or other long guns that use a Mil-spec 6 position extension tube. Despite its slim profile, the slanted cheek rest is still kept intact for the S2 and provides a comfortable cheek weld that promotes a consistent shouldering of the firearm.

The S2 Recon has an extended 7.5″ length of pull (LOP) fully collapsed and can accommodate just about everyone’s preferred LOP when adjusted anywhere along the 6 position extension tube. While still remaining slim and lightweight, the S2 features an ergonomically chamfered rubberized butt pad with a heavy duty pattern for maximum traction control. An integral ambidextrous standard sling loop and a reversible QD sling swivel housing provide attachment points for single or multi-point slings. The 6 position adjustment latch is based off of the Mil-spec standard providing an easy transition for those who were trained on using Mil-spec AR configurations previously. Manipulation of the latch will feel right at home.

Just like its bigger cousin the S1, the S2’s angled front allows it to sit flush with the lower receiver when fully collapsed for a very streamlined integral look and feel. The excellent fit and finish of the S2 Recon is inherently a direct result of UTG PRO’s advanced tolerance control procedures and state-of-the-art RoboShot injection molding machinery, along with our forever lasting attention to detail. The S2 Recon is offered as an assembly kit (RBUS2BM) that includes the stock, Mil-spec 6 position extension tube, recoil buffer, buffer spring, tear drop ring and castle nut, and is also available as a standalone stock (RBUS2BMS).

RBUS2BM: $69.97 MSRP
RBUS2BMS: $36.97 MSRP

      They’re making stuff here in the US now, don’t get down on them too much. I heard their UTG Pro rails aren’t bad at all, and options at all price points are nice to have.

      Price puts them right in line with ALG rails and Magpul stocks, but the market will decide and since UTG already has so many relationships with current vendors, they’ll be able to get these out there faster than your typical startup or small shop.

        I’ve got the utg pro forend. It’s very nice. From what I can tell, street price on utg stuff is about 15-20% less than msrp, which would make the stock about 30 bucks. So, assuming the build quality is there, it’s a slick little stock that does everything a MOE will plus it has qd attachment points for 10 bucks less. and it appears to have a longer LOP, which I like. Anybody wanna buy a lightly used MOE?
