Some rifles need a good fat shaming — thin is beautiful for guns you need to haul around all day. The AR-15 is already a design that strips down the firearm to the fewest constituent components possible, but there’s always something to slim down. DoubleStar has found a way to reduce the profile and the weight of the rifle’s buttstock just a little bit further with their new “Mortar Plate” AR-15 butt plate.
Here’s the presser:
Winchester, Ky. (January 2017) – DoubleStar Corp, manufacturers of high-quality, US-made AR components, rifles and pistols, is now offering an entry-type butt stock for rifles called the Mortar Plate. Fitting both commercial and military spec receiver extension tubes, the Mortar Plate is US-made, machined from rock-solid billet 6061 aluminum finished in Type III hard coat black anodize.
Sleek and simple, the Mortar Plate has more to offer than just a resting place for your shoulder. It has a small section of Picatinny rail on the base for mounting monopods and there are five (5) Quick-Detach Sling Swivel pockets for a variety of sling and carry styles. Extend the length of pull by adding the .5″ or 1″ Recoil Pad. MSRP is $64.99.
We’ll be looking for one to test out at SHOT Show next week.
