The VLTOR EMOD provides a variety of enhancements in comparison to other stocks. The increased length is a major benefit for those weapons using scoped rifles, as it increases the available comb for any length of pull. The EMOD is slightly wider and longer at the toe than a regular M4 stock with a noticeable negative pitch making transitions from the ready position feel more natural.

***** Chose over Magpul Review by Owen
It arrived several days later, all in good condition. I installed the stock onto a Colt LE 6940P. It does fit rather snugly on the factory buffer tube, but I’d rather that over a loose fit for sure and with some dry lubricant it slides just fine. The battery storage is terrific and perhaps the best I’ve seen on a stock. My cheek placement/eye relief on the rifle is just great with the profiled stock and without having more of a sniper-type fixture for a cheek pad, again, this is by far the best I’ve used. I also married the stock with grips from Stark and the color match is darn near identical. My first 30 rounds out of the newly set up weapon netted a grouping inside 1.5? at 100yds. So obviously it feels just right.
All in all, I couldn’t be happier; between the cost, fit, finish and support on the purchase it was an excellent choice.

I have one on a LWRC M6A3 and just bought one to put on a new AR build. I use it in multi-gun competition and it’s perfect for quick transitions. The big plus that it has is the shape that provides for an excellent cheek weld…wonderful and steady. I always have need for batteries as my red dot is constantly on, and it’s quite easy knowing that they are always in the on-board storage along with a few critical spare parts. A little tissue, nitrile gloves, or plastic baggies come in handy while keeping things from rattling. Stock finish is top notch and the built-in QD works easily and flawlessly.
