I just received one from Jtac that was like that... Its been quite awhile since I bought my first Vltor, and wasn't sure how long they had been marking them like that. I usually run my stock one notch from fully open, so it makes it a little easier to quickly deploy the stock to the desired length.

Good idea, now if they'd only put markings of a ruler on the side so you can measure the length of fish you caught

That's good news, think I'm gonna get one.

Say, Buck Naked, post some pics please

The Vltor tube is mil-spec and compatible with the LMT SOPMOD buttstock right?

Sure is. Also with the Stag stocks. Great fit.

Great. So which dealers have these numbered tubes in stock?

Sounds useless to me, but I still far prefer Vltor to Stag for tubes as the Vltor tubes have a smooth surface finish.

Here you go sir!





I just hope the markings hold up to use, the numbers are not engraved or recessed into the metal...

I suggested this exact thingto Eric about 2.5 years ago when I was trying to push our agency into getting adjustable shotgun stocks. Works very well for the newbie learning about stock positioning.

Glad to see it is being implemented by someone.

Cooler if it was the CMT 6 pos.

I thought that up quite a while ago. I knew it was only a matter or time before someone did it. Cool stuff.

I like how everyone takes credit for it.

I think it's a great idea for those that transport their firearms with the stock collapsed but like to run it in a repeatable position.

Hey I never posted my idea... but you can ask one of my friends, I also thought this up a couple years ago. Great minds think alike or something.

Overall they are not a bad stock. Just wish they did not rattle so much. The new markings are not a bad idea. Hopefully other makers will run with the same idea and mark theirs.


The new one is much tighter than the older black one, and has very little if any rattle to it. I really like the Vltor stocks, but the rattle with the black one was a little annoying.


Thanks for putting the pics up! I forgot to take any today

Your welcome! Glad to help out, and Duffy needed the pics as an excuse to buy a new stock anyway...

Vltor has a nice tube, but I need a 6-position tube for the length... No rattle in mine.
