I picked up a stock from them at SHOT this year. Put it on my tube and it works great. One less thing to pop off. On my regular stock I had to have the rubber pad zip tied on.

No, the recoil isn't bad, the thing just keep slipping off my body armor at the worst moments. hard to get a reliable, consistant cheek weld without one.

I like it.

FWIW, those guys aren't carrying enough mags. 600 rounds is a good place to start when you're hunting for the bad guy. IMHO, of course.

That doesn't look like the CAA side saddle to me...it looks more like this stock at Cheaper Than Dirt.

you are correct......

Well seeing as it is an Israeli company it would make sense that they outfit Israeli troops now wouldn't it.

Only conjecture but I have heard very few positive things about the MARS. They were issued to American troops, mostly USMC from the pictures I saw and they were not spoken of very highly. Perhaps a thread in the optics forum could attract some of our BTDT folks who would know more.

but I think we can guess hwo makes the one pictured....

You see alot of the CAA stuff over there. Their rail systems that attach via th FSB and whatnot seem to be fairly common as are the Samco light holders (see the first picture) and the VFG's as well. I do find it curious as to why the Israeli's have no adopted weapon lights or RIS/RAS systems yet. With all the MOUT they do one would think that it would be a priority to enahnce the effectiveness of their soldiers.
