Battlearms Wood Stock now available

Battle Arms Development, Nevada USA, have released three pieces of highly desirable wood.

You can spot them in the picture above, taken by TracerX.

Made from Grade A French (is that going to put people off?) Walnut we find a handguard, a pistol grip and a cheek rest.

In a world of metal, polymer and other synthetic materials this is a development I welcome.

I get quite a lot of Stg 44 vibes from these pictures. The AR15 is well disguised.


GOT WOOD?!? The gun that broke the internet is finally ready in an affordable package! The Grade A French Walnut Handguard and Pistol Grip plus the Chemical Resistant Wood Patterned SS Cheek Rest.


“Cheek rests will be available for the BAD-CSS bolt-on VERT Stock or the BAD-PDW Monolithic Lower versions. The wood handguard is designed to be drop-in fit into our 6.7″ or 9.5” RIGIDRAIL

Below: Detailed photo of the pistol grip. It looks like this grip has a deeper angle, more PDW friendly.

You can find their Instagram here also.

Note that the pistol grip looks a little different on this one, not sure this is the final production version.

The price starts from $350. You have to call them to purchase, it’s not yet available online. I hope they have not sold out, but it’s highly likely.

    Very pretty…..

  • Samantha J

    In a world where every rifle looks the same, it is cool to see someone with the artistic eye and talent to make the mundane stand out a little. Yes, this is purely aesthetic, but we’ve been decorating guns for centuries. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Too bad the stock and the wood cost more than a rifle. ๐Ÿ™

    • Ryfyle

      And it’s coming from Henderson, the least artsy town in Nevada. Mixed blessing on the price though.

  • Vhyrus

    “…highly desirable wood.”


  • DangerousClown

    I’ll be sure to cull some walnut, before I sell my house.

    “Made from Grade A French (is that going to put people off?) Walnut we find a handguard, a pistol grip and a cheek rest.”

    At least we know it’s drop resistant.

    • Joshua

      I’m very conflicted. On the one hand, that was really insensitive and inflammatory. On the other hand it was kinda funny

      • Longhaired Redneck

        Hopefully you haven’t been “triggered”!

    • datimes

      100 years ago the French army gave a stiff resistance to the Germans when their country as invaded. When they finally dug in they paid a horrendous price. Recent history, not so much.

      • SP mclaughlin

        They did pretty well in Mali a few years ago.

        • Giolli Joker

          I think it was their Foreign Legion there.
          They are genuinely badass.

          • Georgiaboy61

            If a Legionnaire drops his rifle, it is only because he has plans to kill his enemy with something else – perhaps his bare hands.

    • KidCorporate

      These days make sure it can take getting run over, too.

      Now THAT’S you do “insensitive.”

  • Joe

    Given the niche and the aesthetic I guess $350 isn’t bad. I’d love to see what they can do for carbines/rifles.

  • RavishedBoy

    The choice of the texture of the grip is awful.
    Better a plain walnut or a laminated one.

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    I like the whole upper/lower design.
    Id like one with futuristic “ALIENS’-esque style plastic.

  • USMC03Vet

    That is some expensive wood. Those safe queens better be worth it.

  • Jermaine

    I guess my last comment had too many links so here is version 2.

    Others have been doing this, Google: Black Wood USA, WoodForAr
    or more generally: wood ar-15 furniture and take your pick.

    I wonder why a “big” company decided to join the game.

      When you put URL in a response it gets flagged and a TFB mod has to approve it.

  • Stand Your Ground

    Looks beautiful

  • John

    That reminds me: Wolfenstein 2 is supposed to be coming out this year.

  • Mike Reagan

    $350 on top of the $399 for their stock? Jeeze.

    • Cymond

      Plus whatever the aluminum handguard costs

  • Paul White

    I can’t really justify it financially right now but damn do I want it

  • AD

    I think it looks really good.

  • jerry young

    I like this but when I first saw the post I was hoping for a M16A1 style then after opening I discovered the same basic AR parts redesigned a little with wood accents, French oak is fine for making wine but I’d rather my rifle be dressed in American Black Walnut if I’m going to shell out that kind of money for accessories, but good looking none the less.

  • john huscio

    Osage orange wouldve made a better choice…..much tougher wood

  • Peter Wall

    A little respect for the Frogs, after all they were the only nation to give us diplomatic
    Status to our fledgling republic at the time of our own revolution. Thank you French Republic, you were there for us when it counted.

  • armed bear

    I can 3D print that in a wood based filament. But why? Wood looks great on a classic hunting rifle, but polymer is where it is at!!!!!
