By now, many of you are aware of Maxim Defense™ and its offerings. Maxim Defense™ is a non-traditional U.S. based firearms development company centered on producing better, lighter, and more reliable firearms and accessories that exceed in today’s most extreme environments. Headquartered in St. Cloud, Minnesota, Maxim Defense™ provides research and development and manufacturing superiority for U.S. and NATO military forces, government agencies, and homeland first responders.
Depending on your mission or operating environment, Maxim Defense™ has something that can increase your lethality. They are most well known for their CQB stocks; these stocks are great for operating in confined spaces or limited storage space. They provide you with the ability to deploy or manipulate your weapon quicker and get on target faster.
The Gen 6 series stocks are shorter in their collapsed position and extend to standard full-length stock and buffer tube. The Gen 6 stock has no buttons to push and can be extended by simply pulling the stock. The buffer tube housing incorporates two quick detach sling swivel locations.
The Gen 7 version has the same length of pull and operation as the Gen 6. But the Gen 7 has a more streamlined design that removes the right and left side quick detach sling swivel locations and incorporates a single ambidextrous quick detach sling swivel location.
Most of their compact stocks will require proprietary buffers and buffer springs and even the bolt with some models.
However, their Combat Carbine Stock or CCS will work with even your MIL-STD buffer and buffer springs and net you about an inch of length savings. The main point is if you need a stock that’s easily deployable, that will allow you to work or carry in confined space, be sure to take a look at Maxim Defense’s line of stocks.
Maxim Defense™ also makes full up compact weapon systems, many of which operate the same as any standard AR platform in a few different calibers from 5.56, 300 BLK, and even 7.62 x 39. They also make handguards, rails, and rail covers that are top-notch along with their parts and accessories like their popular HATEBRAKE. Ultimately, Maxim Defense™ is a “must look” to determine what will work for you and your mission requirements.
