posted on October 23, 2019

Getting a good cheek weld on the stock of your rifle is an essential part of rifle marksmanship, and now Luth-AR makes it easier than ever to own a quality AR-15 rifle stock. Luth-AR is announced the latest addition to the Luth-AR MBA line of buttstocks in its new MBA-5 Buttstock.

Designed as an affordable, lightweight, adjustable carbine buttstock with a paddle-style adjustment lever, the MBA-5 Buttstock features a wide, flared cheek rest and an integrated Picatinny rail to allow attachment of a monopod or other accessories to the bottom of the stock.

The MBA-5 stock is designed to fit either mil-spec or commercial carbine buffer tubes and includes an anti-rattle clamp, an exclusive feature found only on Luth-AR stocks. The MBA-5 can use Luth-AR’s Grovtec quick-detach sling cup and is perfect for use with the company's Chubby Grip and Palm Handguard as well.

  • Lightweight carbine buttstock
  • MBA ergonomic styling
  • Paddle adjustment lever for rapid positioning
  • Flared cheek rest
  • Integrated Picatinny rail for mono-pod attachment
  • Quick release cup pockets on both sides

  • High-strength glass-filled nylon
  • Length-of-pull: 11.5 inches collapsed, 14.5 inches extended
  • Weight: 8.95 ounces
  • Fits either mil-spec or commercial carbine buffer tubes

Available accessories for the MBA-5 include:

  • Grovtec QD Cup
  • Grovtec QD Sling Swivel
  • Carbine Buffer Kit (Buffer tube, spring, buffer body, latch plate and lock ring)
