Was just perusing around the Larue website when I stumbled upon their 2012 behind the scenes Machining Operation Tour.

Scrolling down, something caught my eye...

Has anyone heard any news about these? I tried doing a search for them on the almighty Google but nothing came up.

Yep, they could do better.

If you scroll down further on the link for LA Rue there is a full shot of a new butt stock that they are producing.

It look based more on the SOPMOD program stock by Crane than the Magpul CTR. If it's La Rue I'm sure the lock up is pretty good, but really, I think it's just a way for them to keep profits in-house. No reason for them not to, really. If I bought one of those rifles, or if I could anyway, I wouldn't be disappointed by the prospect of that stock.

Installed and tried out the A-Peg grip this morning..felt comfortable and was able to get a more consistent trigger finger placement and press...medium sized hands here...

The groups seemed a bit more consistent also, but it could just be me. I'll have to try it a couple of more trips to make an informed decision on it.

I have a pre-order for their PredatOBR. LT is forcing their new stock and grip onto their customers. Right from the start, I didn't like their new stock and also called it a cigar cutter. "ONCE" I get the rifle, I'm taking the stock off and selling it.

The Stock was announced with the PredatOBR from what i recall.

I'm actually going to test out their new grip today as my new OBR just came in and it seems it came with one... quite curious.... i personally think the stock is ugly. :P

Cool stock, kinda looks that he CTR though. Hey at least it has a 2-stage trigger thats a first huh?

I believe famkl has the right idea. Cheaper to make their own stock and grip then buy magpul stuff to put on their rifles.

Unless I missed it, I don't see any compartments on the RAT stock. :confused:
