DOUBLE STAR – AR-15 ARFX SKELETON STOCK
The AR-15 is a rifle which has many uses. You can use it for target shooting, hunting, law enforcement tasks, or military operations. What recreational shooters particularly like about the weapon is that it is upgradable. Although the AR-15 is a powerful and well-designed weapon, there are some people who don’t like the factory stock that comes with it. They would prefer to upgrade the stock to one which is strong and lightweight at the same time. That way, they can handle it easily and quickly in environments which don’t give you a lot of time to react.
The best thing is that such stock is now available for shotguns. You can install it on your Remington 870 or Mossberg 500/590.
Double Star AR-15 ARFX Skeleton Stock is the upgrade that you will want to try. Its aluminum construction gives the stock the kind of lightweight and durability that will make it suitable for either tactical or recreational purposes. There are three sling points available in case you want to attach a sling to your stock. The 1.25-inch sling swivel and stud is simple to figure out how to use if you’ve never attached a sling before.
The stock installation requires rifle length buffer tube attached to the adapter. When you go to hold the stock to your cheek while aiming the weapon, it will feel very comfortable because of the cell foam material which covers the tube.
The cheek weld is actually an over-tube which gets placed right on the top of the stock. The foam material of the over-tube is specially formulated to tolerate any gun oils or cleaning solvents that you use on it. The over-tube can also withstand freezing cold temperatures, rough handling, UV rays from the sun, and salt water.
The ARFX Skeleton Stock comes with a butt plate which is made of machined aluminum. The plate is drilled for the Butt Pad made of rubber that is also included.
The price of the ARFX Skeleton Stock is $89.99. It is made in the United States and only comes in a black color.
It was very interesting to test this stock on the range. I prefer shorter stock, so this one was a little too long for me. It has length of the standard stock. I think it will be ok if you usually shoot with the standard LOP stock.
I would replace the standard pistol grip with one of the aftermarket ones. Never liked standard AR-15 pistol grip. I prefer Magpul pistol grips but you can choose the one you like.
It was very comfortable to manipulate the shotgun with ACE stock. The stock itself is lightweight and sturdy.
Foam padding of the stock is very nice to the touch. The cheekweld was perfect. It was a fun to shoot a shotgun with the ACE stock. The only thing that I didin’t like is a sharp edge of the Receiver Block but it is not a big problem.
I can recommend this stock to those who like AR-15 stocks especially the ones by Double Star. Not only the ARFX Skeleton stock can be installed using the Receiver Block but other Double Star brand stocks as well.
