Last May I reviewed the Viper butt stock from Strike Industries and found it to be a rather solid option for those looking for a low-cost stock that wasn’t the overly common Magpul MOE stock. One of the complaints that surfaced in the comments is the lack of a rubber butt pad to help absorb shock when mortaring the rifle to clear a malfunction.
Well, they listened to your complaints and have released the MOD1 Butt Pad as an add-on item. The pad showed up packaged in typical Strike Industries fashion, inside a retail ready box with attractive graphics.
The Viper stock has a small notch at the top to catch the small hook on the rubber butt pad. The screw hole mates up with the hole in the stock as well to give a nice tight fit. So tight in fact that the screw is almost unnecessary.
If you already own a Strike Industries Viper stock, the MOD1 butt pad should be on your to buy list. With a MSRP of only $13.95 there is little reason to not buy one. You can learn more about it at Strike Industries website HERE.
