The production of a versatile rifle stock that enables operatives to discharge their firearms while wearing a ballistic helmet with the visor fully lowered has been launched.
The 164 year old survival equipment manufacturers, BCB International first unveiled the FRAMM modular stock at DSEI 2017. The FRAMM is an adjustable and foldable stock that allows firearms officers to comfortably discharge their firearms in all firing positions.
BCB International’s FRAMM Project Manager, Philippe Minchin, confirmed that the stock is now in production: “Production has been launched for the H&K G36, B&T 40x46 and HK-UMP variants of the stock. In the near future we plan to start the production of FRAMM variants for: FN HERSTAL-SCAR, HK-MP5 A2, HK-MP5K-PDW, BERETTA-ARX 160, REMINGTON-ACR, CZ-805 A1 BREN, SIG SAUER-550/551.., SIG SAUER MCX, B&T-APC556. The FRAMM is good news for law enforcement professionals because it removes the inconvenience for both non-visored and visored officers of having to alternate between different buttstocks to fit the situations they are faced with.
“At a press of a button, the FRAMM enables a firearms officer to switch from a classic straight stock alignment to a lowered setting of their choosing; thereby eliminating the risk of their helmet visors or gas respirator masks interfering with the shouldering, aiming and firing of their weapon. Whether it is in crowd control, close quarters battle or CBRN situations, the FRAMM stock suits all mission requirements."
