I’ve never seen anything like it. The patent pending NSN completely replaces the need for a shoulder stock on an AR-style firearm. Consisting of two main components: a stainless steel bracket, which mounts directly to a variety of firearms, and dual impact-absorbing foam pads, which mount to the rear of the bracket, the shooter places the bracket against his chin. The padded bracket absorbs nearly all of the felt recoil. The device mounts directly to any firearm with an industry-standard M16 lower receiver end plate adapter, including the popular semi-automatic AR-15 as well as several GLOCK pistol models fitted with an extra adapter.
The NSN makes the weapon both lighter and more compact. The developer Halix also claims that the firearm is easier and faster to aim because the device provides a point for the operator’s face and eyes to consistently index and acquire the sighting mechanism, and the device removes the time and effort needed to orient one’s shoulder and torso to the correct position. They also assert that aiming deviations caused by breathing are nearly eliminated because firearms do not contact the torso of the operator when using the invention. Additionally, with the NSN shooters are said to feel significantly less recoil than experienced with a shoulder stock, as the impact-absorbing foam pads retard rearward firearm motion more effectively than conventional shoulder stock designs, leading to faster follow-up shots and increased comfort.
