Faxon Backstrap for MSR

    Faxon Logo

    Faxon Firearms will show a new product at the SHOT Show called the Backstrap for Modern Sporting Rifles.

    The Backstrap sounds like a grip safety typical to the 1911 handgun. According to Faxon, the “Backstrap is a passive system to disable fire control on a Modern Sporting Rifle” and is “similar to John Browing’s design.”

    According to the company the Backstrap is designed for competitors and tactical operations.

    Faxon will sell the Backstrap assembly as a kit that will include a lower receiver, grip and the Backstrap part itself. No MSRP has been announced.

    Is this something you would be interesting in having for your AR-15?
