Troy has announced it will offer their M7A1 stock – debuted originally as part of the Troy PDW – as a kit. The Tactical Wire reports:

West Springfield, MA – Based on overwhelming consumer demand, TROY® is adding the M7A1 PDW Stock Kit to the line of reliable, innovative, BattleReady™ advanced small arms accessory upgrades. The PDW Stock Kit will be on display at TROY® Booth (LL, #927) the NASGW Annual Meeting in Little Rock, AK.

The popularity of this highly concealable and compact stock, initially offered only with the Troy Defense PDW carbine, initiated the development of a complete upper package to satisfy demand. The TROY® M7A1 PDW Stock Kit features a rugged, retractable stock designed for close quarter 5.56 rifle builds. Utilizing a proprietary, patent pending spring, buffer system and heavy-duty latch assembly, the BattleReady™ PDW Stock Kit functions without question under intense conditions.

“We have been overwhelmed with calls and requests for our PDW stock ever since the rifle debuted at SHOT two years ago. We’re not sure who is more excited about this release: us at TROY or our customers. It’s another great example of how TROY actively listens to our loyal fans and supporters.” Molly Troy, Director of Sales.

The M7A1 PDW Stock Kit will be offered in Black and Flat Dark Earth and features Q.D. swivel holes for an optional sling attachment for cross-body wear. The MSRP is $499.

There have been a number of solutions to the problem of making very compact AR-15 variants, ranging from the elegant to the kludgy. I would be very interested to see what sort of results could be had by combining the M7A1 stock with a Dolos detachable barrel kit.

    I wonder how much shorter this is than the lwrc ultra compact stock I have (which is 400 cheaper and provides actual cheek weld)

    I might buy one from Canada but Troy will never get another dime from me. I don't need any gear designed to shoot Moms holding their babies. F**K Troy

      @Matt Grimes I really like the look of their Alpha rail, and would like to put one on a short-barreled 9mm. However, I won't buy from Troy for similar reasons that I won't elaborate on TFB.
