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 pre-assembled 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.
