It seems that the notion of sticking a stock on a pistol is an idea that just won’t go away. First there were the simple detachable wooden stocks that got stuck on to Borchardt C-93s, Mauser C-96s, Luger P-08s, and Browning Hi-Powers in the latter part of the 19th century and first half of the 20th. I think there was even an unsuccessful attempt to mount a detachable wooden stock on the M1911 .45 at some point.Moving up to the 21st century, we’ve already seen the detachable skeleton carbon-fibre stock for the Glock series – and then the total re-imagining approach taken by MagPul with their FMG/FPG. Perhaps inspired by the basic concept of the FMG – or perhaps designed by a committee high on hallucinogenic steroids – the latest thing to appear on the market is the KPOS Pistol Rifle Platform from Israel.
Initially offered as a system for Glock pistols, the KPOS fits Glock 17/19/22/23/34/35 and C models, Sig-Sauer Pro SP2022, Springfield XD/HS 2000. Installation is quick and easy, and no tools are required.Set-up includes:
- Folding foregrip
- Sling of your choice (2-point or 1-point sling)
- Fold-to-the side compact buttstock with rubber buttpad
- Carrying case
- Cocking handle
- Innovative patented design which locks the gun to the frame in both the front and back, making it a rock-solid system
With the KPOS installed you can:
- Use the original iron sights, so a flip or red-dot sight is not absolutely required
- Mount a foregrip, flashlight, optics, laser and/or BUIS
- Mount a silencer on the barrel
