The collapsible stock on the firearms are downright diminutive and when fully compress nearly become part of the receiver. But to reap the benefits of the nifty system meant shooters had specifically shop that line of carbines.
That is until now. The Massachusetts manufacturer recently unleashed the accessory to the black rifle world with the release of the M7A1 PDW Stock Kit.
The six-position stock is compatible with any Mil-Spec AR-15 and allows for nearly 3 inches of adjustment. For a quick example, the stock makes Troy’s 14.5-inch barreled M7A1 Carbine overall length between 30.5 inches and 33 inches.
