Shooters in Close Quarters Battle (CQB) have a massive struggle with their standard equipment and tactics. And that’s because these things are great under normal conditions, but just don’t function well in a close-quarters environment (such as in an alleyway, or in an urban environment).
As such, for these situations, shooters all over the world are going to need a firearm that they can effectively fire at close range, without having to fumble around or switch to a new gun.
And what should be obvious at this point is that collapsible stocks are out of the question. Not only can they be a pain, but, besides their pleasing aesthetics, most shooters absolutely hate them.
So what can you do?
Well, thanks to the recent release of a new, revolutionary product, there is finally a solution that is going to change the game when it comes to CQB. The product’s name: the XOP Stock.
First off, you’re probably wondering how to pronounce it. The X in the name sounds like a “Z,” and you pronounce it “Zahp.”
The XOP Stock not only looks incredibly sleek, but is able to become every shooter’s ideal firearm for both close quarters and open areas.
Here’s some more information from Guns.com:
The new XOP stock by Auto X Ops for AR-style rifles allows shooters to adjust the length of pull of their stock without ever taking their hand off the grip or eyes off the sights.
The patented XOP stock, (pronounced ZOP) is the brainchild of retired police officer Joede Vanek (LVMPD) and his good friend Bret Pitman. Together, they formed Auto X Ops. They came up with the idea, designed it and manufactured it entirely themselves. They were at SHOT Show 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada marketing their soon to be available product.
The XOP replaces the standard stock and pistol grip on AR platforms. The XOP is activated by a small spring loaded silver lever at the bottom of the trigger guard. The shooter uses his or her middle finger to activate it. When the shooter pulls the lever all the way to the rear, the spring loaded stock extends or can be shortened by compressing it against the shoulder. There are 11 positions that can be selected by the shooter.
The XOP allows a shooter entering a confined space to shorten the stock without ever taking his or her eyes off the sights or hand off the grip. There are many other uses as well. The XOP stock is smooth so that it doesn’t catch on clothing and it will come with different stock and grip options.
Currently Auto X Ops are taking email addresses of those interested here. You’ll receive updates and when the product is available, you’ll have first dibs.
