The Glock with the stock and the stock with the Glock

It seems that the notion of sticking a stock on a pistol is an idea that just won’t go away.  First there were the simple detachable wooden stocks that got stuck on to Borchardt C-93s, Mauser C-96s, Luger P-08s, and Browning Hi-Powers in the latter part of the 19th century and first half of the 20th.  I think there was even an unsuccessful attempt to mount a detachable wooden stock on the M1911 .45 at some point.

Moving up to the 21st century, we’ve already seen the detachable skeleton carbon-fibre stock for the Glock series – and then the total re-imagining approach taken by MagPul with their FMG/FPG.  Perhaps inspired by the basic concept of the FMG – or perhaps designed by a committee high on hallucinogenic steroids – the latest thing to appear on the market is the KPOS Pistol Rifle Platform from Israel.

  

Initially offered as a system for Glock pistols, the KPOS fits Glock 17/19/22/23/34/35 and C models, Sig-Sauer Pro  SP2022, Springfield XD/HS 2000.  Installation is quick and easy, and no tools are required.

Set-up includes:

  • Folding foregrip
  • Sling of your choice (2-point or 1-point sling)
  • Fold-to-the side compact buttstock with rubber buttpad
  • Carrying case
  • Cocking handle
  • Innovative patented design which locks the gun to the frame in both the front and back, making it a rock-solid system

With the KPOS installed you can:

  • Use the original iron sights, so a flip or red-dot sight is not absolutely required
  • Mount a foregrip, flashlight, optics, laser and/or BUIS
  • Mount a silencer on the barrel
