As a replacement buttstock for precision AR-platform rifles with quick and easy length-of-pull and comb-height adjustments, FAB Defense’s name for its Rapid Adjustable Precision Stock (RAPS) tells its story.

Releasing the 21.8-oz. polymer unit’s reversible 1Latch lever causes its height-adjustable rubber buttpad to automatically extend to the user’s pre-determined LOP setting, while also freeing up the integral cheek piece for adjustment so that he or she can achieve optimal alignment within a given optic’s eye box.

The RAPS (available in black, olive drab green and flat dark earth) comes configured for use with A2-style rifle receiver extensions, however, two extra tube adapters ship with the stock that allow for compatibility with carbine-length and non-AR-pattern buffer tubes.

Suggested retail pricing on the FAB Defense RAPS is $230. For more information, visit fab-defenseus.com.
