Modular Driven Technology is now shipping their Field Stock for Ruger American short action rifles. This stock is a drop-in replacement for the factory stock but with added features. Let’s take a look.
MDT @ TFB:
MDT’s Field Stock bridges the gap between a traditional rifle stock and a full chassis. The heart of the stock is a bedding block for a solid connection to the receiver. It features an adjustable cheek riser and a spacer system to adjust the length of pull. Another key feature is magazine compatibility. The Field Stock accepts AICS-pattern mags, which is a major upgrade from the factory box magazines. Rounding out the features is a series of M-LOK slots on the handguard for accessory mounting.
Unlike a chassis, the Field Stock has a polymer exterior. This means it is not as cold to the touch when it’s cold outside. It also has a layout more akin to a traditional stock, and the tang-mounted safety is more accessible than it would be on a chassis system with an AR-style pistol grip.
You can order the Field Stock for the Ruger American short action directly from MDT for $299.95. It is available in black or flat dark earth.
From the manufacturer:
Get more accuracy out of your factory rifle by upgrading with the Field Stock. The traditionally shaped polymer stock provides comfort and warmth in cold weather. Improve accuracy with the aluminum v-block bedding and a free-floating barrel. The adjustable buttstock allows you to be more comfortable for long-range shots.
The Field Stock is configurable for any shooting discipline. In addition to the included sling swivel studs, the M-LOK forend enables you to customize accessories for hunting, competition, or casual long-range shooting.
