Strike Industries Viper Stock Now Available

strike-ind-viper-stock-black

Strike Industries showed off their new collapsible Viper Stock to us a few months back, well it’s finally available for purchase. Their new lightweight and compact polymer Viper stock weights in at just 6.3 ounces. The butt pad area is shaped to be a better fit for those wearing body armor and it has a length of pull from 9.25″ all the way to 12″. It’s a simple slide on replacement for AR15s and M16s that use a mil-spec sized buffer tube. It also features QD sling mounting points on both sides of the stock, it also looks like it has spots to attach cheek risers but Strike Industries didn’t specify that on their product page.

The Strike Industries Viper Stock is available now for $49.95 for the Black and Flat Dark Earth stocks and $50.95 for the Black or Flat Dark Earth with Red QD sling mounts. Check them out at strikeindustries.com.

It actually kinda looks like the MFT Battlelink Minimalist Stock but with a shorter butt pad and QD mounts, which I think is a good thing. I always felt like the MFT Battlelink Minimalist Stock would get caught on your clothing, plate carrier, rig etc. I’ve never used the MFT stock but I know of the paracord cobra braid that helps prevent that. It looks like you can’t do the same mod on the Strike Industries Viper but you might not have to with the shorter butt pad.

    That looks pretty nice, have to check it out.

    I thought the MFT would snag as well but I’ve had an opportunity to put a few miles on one and didn’t have any problems, even in kit and winter gear.

    I use a two point sling though so the single QD on the MFT is in a bad spot for me.

    • Sianmink

      Someone should start making accessories that utilize all these QD mounts that we’re not using..
      Hmmm.

      • NDS

        No joke, I recently did a build that the client’s rail had no less than NINE qd mounts. AND I’ve seen a manufacturer now put a QD mount in every keymod slot… come on now.

        • Sianmink

          That’s.. excessive. XD

          There’s gotta be something else useful we could slot into a QD mount, right?

  • Laserbait

    Are they still making all their stuff in china?

    • Christian Hedegaard-Schou

      Given that they got their start as an airsoft company, I’m going to take a wild-ass-guess and say “yeah”.

      • Garrett Keller

        Strike Industries is a real steel company composed of US military veterans from all different backgrounds, in-house designers, engineers and firearm enthusiast. We share a passion of creating firearm parts and accessories that offer something unique to shooters alike. As the owner of Strike Industries I can tell you we have never been an airsoft company, though we do license our designs to airsoft, I couldn’t really tell you the first thing about airsoft, lol! We do a lot of manufacturing in Taiwan and the US, huge difference from being made in China. With that being said we understand the made in USA and would love to offer more USA made parts and are doing so little by little as we continue to grow and strive to keep our level of quality and reasonable prices.

        Sincerely,

        STRIKE INDUSTRIES CEO

          Nicely shared – thanks. I agree with affordable, functional, and quality summation of your products.

        • Christian Hedegaard-Schou

          Thanks for reaching out Garrett. I’ll be perfectly honest, I was confused and could have sworn up and down that Strike was an airsoft company that I used to be familiar with.

          My apologies for the mixup.

          As a fellow Santa Ana’n, I’d love to buy you a beer.

        • Aaron

          Nicely put, but I’m not onboard until you change the “Runic” logo. I can’t get past the striking resemblance to the SS insignia. Sucks, but they ruined that for everyone.

        • Laserbait

          Hello Garrett,

          It would help if you put the country of origin on each of the products on your web site to remove any confusion.

    • Part of it but not all.

    • Sam

      My UDC dust cover and Mega fins handguard rails are made in Taiwan. As far as I know, Taiwan is not China.

      • Laserbait

        Tiawan is a republic of china.

    • Ergo

      tiawan,

  • Okay, this is the first AR stock I’ve seen that gave the knee-jerk reaction of “Damn, I gotta get me one of these!”
    Good looking design!

  • Jwedel1231

    I’ve had a MFT for a while now and it hangs up on my clothes. It is a hook, afterall.

  • Cymond

    But it is good to know where something is made, especially in the gun world. I never realized that they’re made in China, which might be important if someone was putting SI parts on a rifle that was borderline compliant with 922r.

  • Cymond

    Obviously, it’s very competitive with the MFT Minimalist. I look forward to seeing them compared side by side.

  • John

    The thing is, stuff made in the U.S. generally doesn’t find its way towards ISIS. Stuff made in China can.

    • Bill

      Have you seen how many F250s they are running around in?

      • Laserbait

        How about Toyotas.

        • Bill

          Those too. The US gov. bought them by the boatload, for everything from covert recon vehicles to embassy maintenance trucks. ISIS doesn’t have to buy stuff from anybody, though I’m sure they have the money. They can loot everything in the country, just like the Taliban looted everything the Russians left behind.

  • Laserbait

    I’d rather be buying products from people making $25 an hour, rather than having my taxes inflate through the roof because everyone is on welfare.

    I refuse to buy foreign made products where ever possible.

    We can’t all be a nation of burger flippers and walmart greeters. I do agree though, unions really have screwed of the working people of the United States.

  • Mr Lee

    So I prefer American Made! My entire rifle was American Made until I bought a Lantac EBCG! Strike Industries makes the only dust cover that fits my BCG! Should be here tomorrow!

    No need to bash Unions on a gun blog site! This country is built on Unions! I am a Laborer and am damn proud! I pay my dues and put my money back into my state! And not all Unions pay people $25 an hour! You obviously never worked at Dominicks or jewel… Union members started at minimum wage! It’s the benefits!
