Only weeks away is the official release of the the VLTOR Improved SCAR Stock; available for both the FN SCAR 16S and 17S models. The stock has improved storage space including cleaning rod retention, and it appears there is enough room in the butt for a replacement bolt and firing pin. The stock has also been reshaped with an easier curve for quick positioning on the shoulder. For me, this translates as faster low-ready to sight-picture. Another great feature is the addition of quick-detach sling mount points. Aesthetically I think this makes the SCAR series look “beefier” without actually increasing the weight or upsetting the balance of the carbine. The stock will be available in black and patriot brown.
There are few accessories we are looking forward to as much as this much needed improvement.
