From Adaptive Tactical . . .

Adaptive Tactical, LLC, manufacturers of innovative firearm stocks and accessories, is proud to announce its highly successful EX Performance Adjustable M4-Style Stock for AR15/AR10 Carbines has received some updates for 2021 to meet growing customer demand. With its advanced design and high-impact, polymer construction, the EX Performance Adjustable Stock is the ideal upgrade.

The stock is engineered for compatibility with MILSPEC buffer tubes, so it works on a variety of AR rifles, shotguns, and rimfire platforms. The oversized pin, durable construction, and extremely comfortable recoil pad make it an ideal option for customers building larger caliber rifles such as .308, .458 SOCOM, and even .50 cal. Designed for owner installation, the quality of its sleek industrial design and construction is evident in the details of this great product.

“Our EX Performance Adjustable Stock is a highly successful stock, in fact, our number one selling item, but we wore out the mold with the increased demand in 2020. With the number of units we produced, we were forced to cease production and rebuild the mold,” commented Gary Cauble, vice president of sales and marketing at Adaptive Tactical.

“During the revamp of the mold, we decided to streamline the appearance of the stock to better match a wider variety of modern rifle receivers and consumer preferences. By doing so, we have not only been able to update the look of the product, but we have improved the mold to increase our production capacity to meet growing customer demand.”

The EX Performance Adjustable Stock was engineered with a component level focus on long-term durability and performance. The finished product is a collection of USA manufactured parts that merge to create an incredible stock.

This M4-style stock features an easy-to-reach rapid adjust lever for a custom, adjustable length-of-pull. It incorporates an oversized steel extra strength adjustment pin to handle the power and energy generated by the heaviest calibers. An extra thick hexagonal non-slip vented rubber recoil pad absorbs the relentless and pounding recoil of the nastiest rifle rounds, reducing felt recoil and shooting fatigue.

A pair of adjustable lever pin covers eliminate the discomfort often associated with removing adjustable rear stocks, while the integrated non-rust sling swivel stud and QD sling swivel insert make for quick and versatile sling mounting options. Glass filled nylon construction guarantees years of reliability for all seasons and conditions.

Available in Black, Flat Dark Earth (FDE), and Orange Less Lethal, the EX Performance Adjustable Stock weighs in at 12 oz. with recoil pad (8 oz. without pad) and has an MSRP of $49.99.

Adaptive Tactical’s Ex Performance Adjustable Stock creates the perfect set with the new Adaptive Tactical Lightweight Tactical Grip (LTG) for AR15/AR9 rifles and AR pistols (available in April 2021). This bundle combines the LTG and the EX Performance AR Adjustable Stock in a cost-saving, made-for-each-other set.

The LTG’s one-piece frame design reduces overall material and significantly reduces weight compared to other grip designs. Non-conductive polymer material will not retain heat nor cold and maintain a comfortable surface temperature while providing an improved grip in all weather conditions. The LTG is easily installed and includes mounting hardware. Proudly made in the U.S.A., the LTG is available in Black (AT-01900) or FDE (AT-01900-E). Bundle MSRP $55.98.

  1. Cool…has anyone seen the cheap(er)folding AR stock advertised on Fakebook?

    • All I can say is I’ll probably end up 3D printing my next AR stocks, at $50 each I can do it cheaper and probably wind up with something at least as light because of the hollow construction of a print vs injection molding.

  2. I like it. I might give this a try. It certainly has the right look.

    I’d like to see a more serious move away from Facebook though.

    Their website says “Designed for owner installation”. All I could do was laugh.

    • Ok arrived this afternoon. The features are very nice. If has a QD sling mount installed, unlike Luth-AR where you have to buy the insert fitting separately. Position lever system is different and works better than most. It slipped right on a MILSPEC buffer tube no problem. FDE color is very close to the scope tube FDE color. I covered the rubber back pad with CAMO form wrap so it fit in. Nothing sticking out to snag or drag like on a standard M4 stock. Going to the range end of the week will check back if anything unexpected happens.

    • And they only had one mold? Right….
      Highly unlikely, unless it’s a one-person operation run by some teenager making stocks in his parents’ basement.
      I’m not saying it is, I’m saying that “we broke our only mold” is a laughably made-up excuse!

    • Injection molds have a life expectancy of 100,000 to 1,000,000 cycles depending on the complexity of the part and design of the mold. As the mold gets used over and over the tolerances gradually increase to the point that the final product is no longer in spec or more likely that an unsatisfactory percentage of the final products are no longer in spec. High quality injection molds also typically cost 10’s if not 100’s of thousands of dollars and therefore its common for a company to commission a single mold and use it until it wears out then buy a replacement.

      • I worked in plastics injection molding. our machines produced 150 million units a year, we had four machines running 2 shifts I worked their 9 years. We’ve had to repair the machines but never had a mold wear out.

  3. To those who think their AR grip is too heavy and need it skeletonized I might suggest keeping your apron on and stay in the kitchen!
