Leapers UTG Introduces New S1 Stock

    Leapers has introduced a new AR-15 stock, resembling a combination of the Magpul CTR and the SOPMOD stock. From the press release:

    With features requested by the law enforcement community and sportsmen alike, UTG’s new tactical stock is designed to perform in any capacity and will become an indispensable part in a perfect firearm setup. With an 8″ retracted length, it is already extended right off the start to allow for modern shooting stances without the need for further manipulation, but still short enough for use with body armor or by smaller frame individuals. It can be extended to a maximum of 12″ length of pull with 6 adjustable positions to complement almost all shooters. Despite its extremely rugged design with twice the material strength of a standard AR stock, it is still light enough to be carried for a long duration of time without fatigue. A thick rubber shoulder pad can take the edge off of those punishing caliber variants. The built-in twin battery compartments, easily accessible via two integral rubber plugs, can house up to 4 CR123 batteries on each side, and also lend the stock its unique shape and generous cheek weld on the outside surface, which provides a comfortable cheek rest without adding additional padding. Military or law enforcement personnel will immediately feel comfortable with the mechanics of this stock, since the adjustment tab has the same shape and position as a standard butt stock. The delta shaped frame has an integral sling loop for slings up to 1.5″ in width, as well as an ambidextrous sling swivel adaptor for use with single point QD style slings. Convenient, easy to use while elegant and strong in design, the new S1 Stock from UTG is already a classic in its own right.

    Though the LMT SOPMOD stock still retails for $200, as per LMT’s website, a number of near-clones have come out recently for those looking for a similar look or utility. This Leapers stock is yet another option for those looking for a stock like that.
