Product Preview: MFT Extreme Minimalist Stock

posted on November 1, 2019

Mission First Tactical already produces one of the most successful minimalist buttstocks for AR-15 rifles, and the newly released Battlelink Extreme Duty Minimalist Stock is a beefed-up evolution of that product, developed to withstand consistent abuse from hard-kicking host firearms such as AR-10s and tactical shotguns—while still being compact and AR-15-compatible. Shaped for use with mil-spec, collapsible, carbine-length receiver extensions, and available in either Black or Scorched Dark Earth, the polymer Extreme Duty Minimalist Stock features a generous rubber recoil pad, several QD sling sockets, an M-Lok attachment slot and a recessed lever for adjusting length of pull. The Battlelink Extreme Duty Minimalist Stock retails for $70. For more information, please visit
