We here at DefenseReview (DR) are big fans of Vltor Modstocks (telescoping buttstocks), and of the Vltor IMod (Improved Carbine Modstock) stock, in particular.

But Modstocks aren’t all they do over there at VLTOR Weapon Systems. In fact, they’re now making complete weapons, and just introduced the Vltor TS3 Carbine (Vltor Tactical Sporter Carbine) mid-length direct-gas-impingement (DGI) tactical AR carbine, which is outfitted with premium tactical AR components, parts and accessories, and was featured on the hit show Top Shot back in September (2011). One interesting TS3 carbine feature is what appears to be a seriously-oversized mag release button (magazine release button).

The TS3 is definitely worth a look.

One of the TS3’s features is a Vltor EMod “A5” Combo Kit stock, which is noteworthy as this one component can solve a lot of AR carbine/SBR timing/reliability problems all by itself. DR plans to combine the A5 lower receiver extension/buffertube-and-buffer kit with a Vltor IMod stock in the near future and T&E it.

Vltor TS3 Carbine (Vltor Tactical Sporter Carbine) Features Rundown:

Vltor TS3 Lower Receiver featuring a beveled magazine-well, large button magazine release and three-position, quick-detachable single-point sling mount.
