Strike Industries showed off their new collapsible Viper Stock to us a few months back, well it’s finally available for purchase. Their new lightweight and compact polymer Viper stock weights in at just 6.3 ounces. The butt pad area is shaped to be a better fit for those wearing body armor and it has a length of pull from 9.25″ all the way to 12″. It’s a simple slide on replacement for AR15s and M16s that use a mil-spec sized buffer tube. It also features QD sling mounting points on both sides of the stock, it also looks like it has spots to attach cheek risers but Strike Industries didn’t specify that on their product page.
The Strike Industries Viper Stock is available now for $49.95 for the Black and Flat Dark Earth stocks and $50.95 for the Black or Flat Dark Earth with Red QD sling mounts. Check them out at strikeindustries.com.
It actually kinda looks like the MFT Battlelink Minimalist Stock but with a shorter butt pad and QD mounts, which I think is a good thing. I always felt like the MFT Battlelink Minimalist Stock would get caught on your clothing, plate carrier, rig etc. I’ve never used the MFT stock but I know of the paracord cobra braid that helps prevent that. It looks like you can’t do the same mod on the Strike Industries Viper but you might not have to with the shorter butt pad.
Phil Note: A variety of buttpads is under development for this stock.
