Thanks for all of your questions. I hope to have Blackfeather back from anodizing any day now.
I cannot wait to see what it looks like anodized on a gun. Mmm...matte black....
suns up, go to work.
ahh f*** it, poor me another Jack.
Thanks for keeping everyone updated. This is an exciting innovation. More choices for the M14 lovers in Canada! :D Aluminum stocks or graphite stocks being made... life does not get better for the M14 enthusiast!
Helping prevent dick-loss one M14 at a time!

1. AR15 "Fixed" Tubes
2. AR15 "Carbine" Tubes
3. AR15 Full length rifle stocks
(The stock will ship with two end plate adapters for items 1 and 2 so you have a lot to choose from: no end plates are required for the full length rifle stock, it is joined into the back of the butt stock adapter).
A lot of people have asked me if Blackfeather will support the Magpul PRS; yes, it will.
What you see in the photo above is a fixed AR15 tube from ACE. It is extremely light, it is 100% rigid and securely connects to the stock with "0" movement. It is simple to install and very inexpensive. It requires the use of the fixed tube end plate as shown above. With the end plate's curved edges and a Magpul pistol grip, it is a very ergonomic, natural fit.
The scalloping along the side of the stock (above the trigger group) allows you to keep your trigger finger in a "trigger ready" position (in the channel groove shown) and then with one simple transitional motion, move it to the trigger pad. The trigger finger is "swept" to the trigger pad. This is a simple design feature that is very natural, unimpeded and fast. The channel groove is present on both sides of the stock so as to afford left handed shooters the same features.
The pistol grip was also positioned favorably rearward for the following reasons:
1. To extend your trigger finger for better comfort during protracted engagements
2. To avoid an "overtly bent" trigger finger position (sorry guys, I don't like it so I had to make sure this was reflected in the new chassis)
3. To allow for easier removal of the trigger group
Frank, I was just wondering your thoughts on using the Brownells / Enidine Hydraulic buffer tube on your chassis? Brownells P/N 100-003-049WB
