Battle Arms Development (BAD) will release their 3 ounce Lightweight Buttstock soon. This is just about as minimalist and lightweight as you will find when it comes to stocks. It is a simple aluminum buttplate that secures to a mil-spec diameter carbine receiver extension. This fixed stock is designed to be as compact as possible. It clamps to the receiver extension with just a single screw and features a QD sling swivel socket under the toe of the stock.
This stock, along with BAD’s lightweight receiver sets, is designed to form the foundation of a lightweight build. I can’t wait to see the weights that savvy lightweight AR-15 users will be able to achieve with these stocks other components from BAD.
