Is the XOP Stock the AR stock of the future? (VIDEO)

Is the XOP Stock the adjustable AR stock of the future? Inventor and retired police officer, Joede Vanek, believes that it is.
We met Vanek at last year’s SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada where he introduced us to the XOP Stock. (pronounced ZOP) It’s a patented stock designed for AR-style rifles that allows shooters to adjust the stock’s length of pull without taking their hand off the grip or eyes off the sights and target.
The shooter uses his or her finger to operate a small lever at the bottom of trigger guard that allows the spring-loaded stock to be compressed or extended.
This year, Vanek was back at SHOT Show showcasing a refined, streamlined and improved version of his product. The grip and cheek-piece are now interchangeable, and the stock has 33-positions of adjustment. “It allows you to get that perfect length of pull,” Vanek said. “You can stay lethal on the weapon at all times.”
The improvements are a result of working with paratroopers and special forces from the US Army. Vanek believes his product would be ideal for law enforcement and the military. “That’s why we developed the all new XOP Stock,” he said. “It’s to keep soldiers and police officers safe and fast
