Colt Defense LLC displayed a new telescoping/folding stock (buttstock) for AR carbines/subcarbines/SBRs (Short Barreled Rifles) at the NDIA Small Arms Symposium that allows lefties access to the trigger when the stock is in the folded position on the left side of the weapon. What makes this possible, and the buttstock unique, is the its ability to swivel. The user can therefore swivel the stock so that the bottom of the stock is facing upward while folded (or extended).
The brains behind the new telescoping/folding/swivelling stock is Colt Defense Senior Design Engineer, Kevin Langevin. He and Colt Defense Director of Product Engineering, Mike LaPlante, were kind enough to demonstrate the new buttstock for DefenseReview, as well as show us the stock’s internals, including the shortened recoil buffer, a necessary component of the system.
