Hera CQR Buttstock Gen.2

Hera’s first-generation CQR stock made waves a few years back upon its introduction to the American market due to its distinctive lines and compact form factor.

Now the company is doubling down on the concept by offering the CQR Buttstock Gen. 2 for fixed-stock AR-15s, a design that is lighter, more ergonomic and even more radical-looking than its predecessor.

Compatible with standard A2 rifle buffer tubes, the Gen. 2 incorporates both a shoulder stock and a pistol grip into the design to create a skeletonized thumbhole opening, and a number of sling-mounting options are molded into its reinforced-polymer body.

The second-gen CQR is available in black, OD green (shown) and tan, and state-compliant versions are also offered.

MSRP is $129. For more information, visit
