Short Barreled Rifles or SBR’s are all the rage. A recent series of articles from Loadout Room writer Rex Nanorum dives into just how short you can go with barrel length. On the other end of the rifle is the buttstock. One of the three main interfaces with a shooter’s body. And CMMG has a new twist on this part. It’s called the RipsStock. What sets this buttstock apart from a standard collapsible stock is how the mechanism works.
Typically, to adjust the length of pull, a shooter must depress some sort of lever allowing the buttstock to slide along the buffer tube. The RipsStock from CMMG can be deployed to any predetermined length of pull by just tugging on it. Additionally, a set screw can be installed limiting the extension to any of the 5 settings. Since pressing a lever isn’t required for deployment, the RipsStock can be rapidly extended and the weapon shouldered. However, a lever must be depressed to collapse the buttstock.
Ideally suited for short barreled rifles and subcaliber builds, the RipsStock will further reduce the overall length of the weapon by approximately 1.5 inches compared to a standard carbine buffer and buttstock. Making it a great option for rifles carried in vehicles. Or where ultra concealment is paramount. Finally, the all-aluminum construction provides a very stable platform on my 2A Armament 3-Gun rifle. Due to its low overall weight, this shorter buttstock did not upset the balance of this rifle. In the video below, you’ll see a size comparison to a standard Daniel Defense Mk-18 buttstock.
