  7. Commercial vs. Mil-Spec Buttstocks

    Mil Spec ButtstockWhen it comes to firearms, consumers often wonder about military-grade and commercial-accessible parts. Both mil-spec and commercial buttstocks are widely available, but minor differences may hinder a firearm enthusiast’s satisfaction.

    Understanding key differences is important, chiefly for collection purposes, as commercial and mil-spec buttstocks are very similar.

    Believe it or not, ambidextrous AR-15 accessories and parts are gaining in popularity with right and left-handed owners for a wide range of reasons.
