That's great! I really like the blackfeather design. I will get one some day but for now its saving money time.

They must have given the perfect secret handshake and proper ear lick to get that far.

$700, it's only money. What's the edge it gives you over one of the plastic SAI stocks.

For me, mainly options TBD'd. Will it make the gun shoot any better? Maybe, maybe not. I'll probably never know. Once it's together, not planning to swap it all out and find out. Not that dedicated a scientist.

A bit too spacey for me I'm afraid, just old fashioned I guess.

Thanks from Douglas Haig

Isn't the Blackfeather a chassis system? I thought the website mentioned it is made of metal, uses a different op rod guide, and provides a tighter fit for the action? I also thought the Blackfeather only featured pistol grips. The Magpul shotgun stock adapter is new to me.

Yes, I believe you are right, and the stock adapter was relatively new, but has been out for awhile.



It seems pretty neat.

In general, it looks like a 'chassis' as opposed to a stock is always relatively pricey.

Congrats to an awesome western Canadian company. If I get another m14 type rifle it's going in a Blackfeather
