Troy Nav Stock

It has become very common for those who carry both an AR-15 and a GPS to attach the GPS to the stock of the AR-15. This is usually done in a field improvised way or by using a wrist strap that is also designed to attach the GPS to an AR-15 stock. The most common GPS device used for this application the Garmin Foretrex 401. It’s compact size make it ideal.

Troy has a clever solution that does away with the field improvisation. The Troy Nav Stock actually has a Foretrex 401 embedded into the stock. It is mounted upside down so that the user needs only to glance downward and roll the rifle slightly to view the display or operate the GPS. The Foretrex utilizes a patch antenna that will function very well even when the unit is upside down in this manner.

This is specialized gear that not everyone needs but it definitely a clever solution for those who do need it.

    It’s like a Red Ryder with the compass in the stock from Christmas Story, but for big boys.

    I use that GPS.

    Mounting it in the stock at that angle makes it impossible to use.

    It’s a seriously stupid idea. Wear it on your wrist, vest, or on the stock at an angle you can actually use.

    Yeah, of course, “LaRue”. That’s why troops have been mounting their GPS units there for years…
