If you have been following this blog for a while, you’ll know I have a long-time love affair with CAV-15 lowers. One of my lowers was worked over by Echo Nine Three with a number of modifications, the most prominent of which is the shortening of the buttstock. Now that the KE Arms KP-15 lowers are out in the wild, it is becoming clear that these are a vast improvement over their distant relative the CAV-15 and Echo Nine Three is, once again, offering customizations.
The KP-15, like the CAV-15 before it, has an integral A1 length stock but the actual internal bore for the buffer tube is made to accept carbine buffers and springs. This means that there are potentially a few inches of stock that can be removed if the user desires something shorter. Echo Nine Three removes this excess length and fits a new rubber butt pad that is shaped to fit the KP-15 stock contours.
Echo Nine Three is the only gunsmith that is authorized by KE Arms to shorten the buttstock in this way. If Echo Nine Three performs the mod, your KP-15 warranty will still be intact.
