The AR-15 was originally conceived to be a comparatively lightweight firearm, and many modern enthusiasts of the platform choose to take that notion to the extreme by selecting ultra-light components for their rifle builds. Weighing in at just 5.4 ozs., by utilizing the smallest amount of material possible while retaining functionality, the Minimalist Stock by Mission First Tactical makes a solid option for those seeking to minimize the weight and clutter of their modern sporting rifle. Available in configurations compatible with both commercial (BMS) and mil-spec (BMSMIL) receiver extensions, and offered in several colors, the Minimalist Stock is a slide-on collapsible unit constructed of reinforced polyamide. The simplistic, yet rugged, stock features an angled, non-slip rubberized buttpad, an ambidextrous QD sling mount and a recessed length-adjustment lever. Price: $60.
