Battle Arms Development Lightweight Buttstock


The new Light Weight Buttstock (BAD-LBS) from Battle Arms Development is about as light weight as it gets, weighing in at a mere 3 ounces. In the tactical world of military and law enforcement there is a saying of "pounds equal pain". What this means is the last thing you need is heavy furniture that adds weight to your rifle or carbine when you already have 20lbs of gear on. When you need to carry your weapon for extended periods of time during a lengthy hunt, training exercise, or real world situation the less amount of weight you can carry means less physical stress on your body. Less physical stress keeps you in the game longer. Period.

A lighter weapon platform is easier to wield and faster to deploy. A lot of lightweight buttstocks claim to be packed full of "essential features" with handy compartments and nifty gadgets which certainly have their respective places in rifles in carbines tailored for a specific purpose, but the more you add to a weapon platform, the more that can go wrong. Battle Arms Development realizes this concept and created a light aluminum buttplate that easily attaches by clamping to the receiver extension or buffer tube with a single screw.

This Battle Arms Development Lightweight Buttstock is perfect for a nice lightweight build that's easy to handle for your pre-teen hunter or rugged enough for your bug out build. When it comes to building a no-nonsense, minimalist, ultra-lightweight rifle or carbine this lightweight buttstock is the answer. All of B.A.D.s products are proudly made in the USA.
