Do you want a PDW stock that allows the use of a standard bolt carrier group? Normally I would tell you you just happen to be out of luck, but the Battle Arms Development Vert stock changes all of that. With a innovative buffer and dual spring arrangement the Vert stock allows you to use a standard M16 bolt carrier in a very compact package. Another benefit of the Vert stock is that unlike most PDW stocks this one isn’t as comfortable as a sharp rock when shouldering the rifle. Battle Arms Development uses a carbon fiber style kydex cheek rest so the shooter can get a good cheek weld without jamming a sharp buffer tube into one cheek.
Battle Arms also took shooters with facial hair into account making sure there wasn’t anywhere for the stock to trap hair when shooting. Sure it is a small detail, but it is much appreciated as a guy with a bit of facial hair. The stock kit ships with its very own buffer tube wrench, standard ones will not work. Overall it appears that Battle Arms really worked hard to develop a pretty bullet proof PDW stock that doesn’t rely on proprietary stuff. MSRP is $400 for the stock, buffer spring, and buffer.
