VLTOR IMod AR15 Stock –
Improved Modstock - Black Clubfoot Commercial
IMods for Commercial Receiver
Extension/Buffer Tubes (1.170” outer tube diameter)
New for 2010, the introduction of the
Improved Modstock, appropriately named the “IMod”. Since 2002, the original
Modstock has become well known and respected by Military, Law-Enforcement and
sports shooters worldwide. Even though the Modstock is considered the best on
the market, Vltor believed it was time for improvements. The improvements are

Like all Vltor stocks, the IMod is
available in the three most popular colors; Black, Flat Dark Earth (tan) and
Foliage Green. As with the original Modstocks, the IMod is offered in the
conventional, “Standard” configuration and the unconventional, “Clubfoot”
configuration. Even though the Standard model is the most well-known model
amongst the shooting public, the Clubfoot version is a hybrid model that bridges
the gap between tactical and prone shooting positions. In other words, the
Clubfoot portion of the stock allows the shooter, with his/her off hand, to
support the stock and to control the rear of the weapon, while shooting in prone
or rested position.
The improvements of the IMod are as
follows: Integral, but removable non-slip buttpad (color matched to stock
Rolled/angled buttpad toe with wide
traction area. This will assist in running the stock high on shoulder, making
the IMod system more user friendly when using web-gear and/or body armor.
Improved lock paddle, making it
easier to operate and making the contact surface non-slip when operating the
Removed most sharp edges that may
cause “snag points” to web-gear or other vital equipment.
Improved strength throughout
construction of the stock chassis. This will provide maximum strength during
“Mortaring exercise” or unexpected impact.
