The V-bedding block is made of A380 cast aluminum, one of the most popular aluminum alloys known for its ability to make durable, yet lightweight parts.

First, the butt stock has room for multiple spacers to be placed. This spacer system allows for a custom length of pull. Remove the rear screws and slide out the butt stock to access the spacers. These half-inch spacers can be added or removed to your liking to change the length from 13 to 15 inches.
The cheek riser is adjustable as well. There are three different available sizes for the cheek riser to accommodate your size and shooting style. The cheek rise is removable and easily replaced while the butt stock is removed.
