Black Rain Ordnance's Minimalist Take on Rifle Stocks

Black Rain MAXIM-CQB-2

Forget artwork that costs too much and doesn’t make any sense. Minimalism moves into the concrete world of tactical rifles with the BRO-MXM CQB from Black Rain Ordnance.

Despite its near-nothing appearance, Black Rain Ordnance packs all 18 ounces of this stock with performance oriented features. Most noteworthy is the built to order version of the JP Silent Captured Spring system. Designed to reduce noise and friction over standard AR buffer springs, the JP spring system also allows for custom tuning.

The Black Rain stock transitions nicely between close quarters duty and longer assignments. Fully closed the BRO-MXM CQB stock measures just 5.5 inches, but then extends to standard carbine length with a total of four positions to choose from.

Compatible with select fire rifles, the BRO-MXM CQB plays well with most rifles from both the gas impingement and gas piston families. MSRP: $395.00

    So, this product actually exists, as opposed to the imaginary Sccy CPX-3? Fascinating.

    I didn't know I needed a silent buffer spring. I thought the gunshot was loud enough.
