Travis Haley and his company Haley Strategic Partners have done a lot to promote networking and collaboration in the “tactical” industry though his Disruptive Industries courses (see Soldier Systems Daily and ITS Tactical for more info). One of the fruits of this collaboration is the new Rifle Dynamics M4 Stock Adapter that is being manufactured by Impact Weapons Components (IWC).
Impact Weapons Components is quickly establishing themselves as a top notch OEM manufacturer in addition to their own excellent MOUNT-N-SLOT product line. This stock adapter is something that Jim Fuller and Rifle Dynamics have wanted to bring to market for a long time. Earl Pittman of IWC was able to refine the design and deliver a part that was machined and anodized to IWC’s standards.
The adapter offers the somewhat unique feature of allowing the use of an AR-15 end plate. This opens up a lot different sling mounting options. Everything from the Magpul ASAP (as shown) to the Blue Force Gear Burnsed Loop should work with the adapter.
The Rifle Dynamics M4 Stock Adapter is available now from Rifle Dynamics. It is not on their website yet but will be shortly and can be ordered by phone. It is also available on ImpactWeaponsComponents.com. Remember to use the code “triggerjerk” for 5% off at ImpactWeaponsComponents.com.
