VLTOR's EMOD provides a variety of enhancements in comparison to other stocks. The increased length is a major benefit for those weapons using scoped rifles, as it increases the available comb for any length of pull. The EMOD is slightly wider and longer at the toe than a regular M4 stock, with a noticeable negative pitch making transitions from the ready position feel more natural. It is crafted from impact and temperature resistant polymer specifically blended for VLTOR. It comes preassembled with rubber buttpad and strike plate. The EMOD has waterproof side battery compartments that hold four CR123 or three AA batteries in each compartment. It has a standard military and quick disconnect swivel socket accessible from both sides. With the buttpad, this stock is 7.75" long (at centerline of tube). It is 14 oz. with a 11.25" collapsed LOP and 15" extended LOP. The buttpad angle is -5 degrees with decrease to -15 at toe.
