*The system should be configured, installed and function checked by a qualified gunsmith for reliable and safe operation.

*Due to the limitless possible configurations of the AR-15 rifle system from aftermarket components and the variety of ammunition used, the AR-15 may be under-gassed for the VERT buffer system. Some adjustments or modifications may be required.

*The most common adjustment if the bolt fails to lock back on the last round is to open the barrel gas port diameter to increase the gas into the system to fully cycle and compress the inner buffer spring for reliable operation. An adjustable gas block, adjustable gas key, or adjustable bolt carrier is recommended for tuning the gas system.

*The stock system performs differently suppressed and unsuppressed. The rifle may be tuned to function on one end of the spectrum or the other. Please do not expect the stock to run on the same rifle configuration between shooting suppressed vs. unsuppressed and supersonic vs. subsonic.

Battle Arms VERT Gen2 PDW Stock System for CQB

The Battle Arms VERT Gen2 PDW Stock System offers the flexibility you won’t easily find in competitors’ PDW Stocks. The design of this stock allows for a continuous cheek rest, even at the full extended length of 8.8 inches. There are four user-adjustable stock extension options, so you’re sure to find a comfortable length for most shooters. While other stocks slide freely from the collapsed position, the Battle Arms VERT Gen2 PDW Stock System can be locked in place at just 4.8 inches, so you don’t have to bother with it while on the move.

Ultra-Compact Battle Arms PDW Stock

The Battle Arms VERT Gen2 PDW Stock System brings a lot to the table in a lightweight package. The VERT System weighs in at only 19 ounces, including the proprietary ultra-compact buffer and spring system, making it a complete drop-in package for the AR-15 platform. The BAD VERT is precision machined from S7 tool steel and aircraft-grade aluminum for durability without a lot of extra weight. It’s finished in Black Mil-Spec III class 2 hard anodized coating for long wear in the field without concerns about peeling or corrosion. Two stationary QD points give you the flexibility to set it up for your preferences and change on the fly.
