Thordsen Customs AR/AK Enhanced Pistol Cheek Rest Kit - MFT Saddle

For many years AR and AK pistols (among others) were considered to be a novelty by firearms enthusiasts. The weight of the platform and the power of the .223 and 7.62x39 rounds made them impractical to use and achieve repeatable accuracy. That all changed in 2013 with the arrival of several innovative products designed to improve stability and ergonomics. With these simple improvements the platform quickly went mainstream. Among these products is the Thordsen Customs AR/AK Pistol Cheek Rest Kit.

This kit is a Hybrid design utilizing either our Standard or Enhanced Buffer Tube Cover kits and the Mission First Tactical EVOLV Battle Stock Attachment. The two are joined together and mounted directly to our Keyed buffer tubes using a specially designed steel bracket and adapter kit. The result is a rock solid, ergonomic, cheek weld that provides stability for accurate, repeatable, shooting and a proper sight line for your favorite optics or sights.

The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives, Technology Branch has affirmed that the Thordsen Customs Buffer Tube Cover/CAA Saddle combination is aCHEEK REST and IS NOT a "rifle stock. It DOES NOT reclassify an AR/AK type "Pistol" as a "short barreled rifle" under definitions established by the National Firearms Act of 1934 or the Gun Control Act of 1968. However, BATFE does specifically warn that any misuse of, or modification to, this configuration that may cause a firearm to be used outside of its design parameters, such as being shoulder fired, may change its classification and may make a firearm subject to NFA and GCA regulations and/or illegal to possess.

I would have rather had the CAA Saddle over the MFT. The MFT is much wider and has sharp edges.The Thordsen sleeve and tube were excellent as well as the quick acurate service from Rainier. (Posted on 1/25/2017)

Looks great, hopefully it will add some back weight & tame the recoil (Posted on 1/14/2017)
Missing an itemReview by
After about a year or so after hearing about this product, I finally committed on purchasing one. I was so excited when it arrived, I immediately started to install it. Unfortunately, one of the major parts needed, the buffer tube cover, was missing out of the prepackaged bag. I'm chalking it up to being a packaging fluke. I contacted customer service and recieved an email. We agreed that hey would just contact thordsen customs and have them ship me out the buffer tube cover. We'll the other day, I recieved a call from customer service and due to having in and out service at my job, and I unwittingly agreed to ship back the whole package. (Posted on 1/4/2017)
Fantastic product! Review by
Used it for personal builds as well as customer builds. If you have one you'd attest to it's quality, if you don't yet I don't think you would be disappointed in the least! Only complaint is that they are out of stock from time to time... (Posted on 11/21/2016)
