Preview: MFT Battlelink Aluminum Minimalist Stock

posted on December 6, 2020
In the wide market of AR-15 accessories, Mission First Tactical has made a name for producing a range of enhancements for America's most popular rifle. One of the company's stand-out designs is its Battlelink Minimalist stock, a collapsible design made from injection-molded polymer. Now, there's a new version of the Battlelink Minimalist stock, which is made from aluminum and features a number of highlights.

Mission First Tactical's use of 6061-T6 aluminum in the construction of this Battlelink Minimalist stock offers a number of benefits. Obviously, there's a greater level of durability in aluminum construction compared to polymer, but the use of aluminum makes this stock more versatile and adaptable than its injection-molded cousin. The stock features custom accessory mounts, and there are interchangeable buttplates available, so you can tune the stock to meet your preferences and needs. Additionally, the design even incorporates a custom sling configuration.

Designed for use with mil-spec buffer tubes, the MFT Battlelink Aluminum Minimalist stock directly replaces any mil-spec stock you've got on your rifle, and it features a checkered pad that anchors the design solidly when bringing your gun up to a firing position. There's a generous area for a solid cheek weld, as well as quick-detach sling-mounting points for both left- and right-handed users. There's also a mounting spot compatible with single-point slings, so you can find the sling setup that works best.

The Mission First Tactical Battlelink Aluminum Minimalist stock measures 5.13" high, 1.465" wide and 6.8" long. Total weight of this all-aluminum design comes in at 8.8 oz. The suggested retail price on the design is $179.99. For more information, visit
