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 subtle but necessary. Feedback from end users will make the IMod the choice over the competition.
When compared to the original Modstock, the IMod series is now available to fit either the Milspec or Commercial diameter receiver extension/buffer tube. Unfortunately, the IMod will not fit both receiver extensions, so when ordering, pick the correct item and part number.
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 components)
All IMod Combo Kits come standard in Milspec dimension. In other words, all IMods will fit only Milspec diameter (1.150”) Receiver Extensions.
The IMod Combo Kit contains the following items:
Installation note: The installation of the IMod stock should only be performed by a qualified gunsmith and/or certified armorer.

Excellent quality materials, packaging was outstanding, which is rare in this industry. Very easy to assemble less than 5 minutes. Use is excellent great cheek weld; the window for the numbered position is a nice feature. Snaps in position is solid. The club foot makes for a nice shoulder pocket hold less pinch feels more stable. Battery pockets bilateral very handy for those of you needing them. Simply put an outstanding piece of equipment.
