GIGN select modular rifle stock
BCB International Ltd announced today that the elite police tactical unit of the French National Gendarmerie, the GIGN, have selected the FRAMM modular stock for their H&K G36 and HK-UMP rifles.
Face shields, respirators, and rifle stocks have never been the best of bed-fellows. Once fully lowered or donned, these pieces of protection, that are essential for law enforcement in many situations, suddenly become a nuisance, interfering with the positioning of weapons carried by armed officers.
To combat this problem BCB International Ltd brought to market the FRAMM, an adjustable and foldable stock that allows firearms officers to comfortably shoulder, aim and discharge their firearms in all firing positions while wearing a ballistic helmet with the visor fully lowered or a respirator.
BCB International’s FRAMM® Project Manager, Philippe Minchin, said: “The FRAMM® is not your typical helmet rifle butt stock. It removes the need for both non-visored and visored officers to have to alternate between butt stocks to fit the situation they are faced with. At a press of a button, the FRAMM® enables an officer to switch from a classic straight alignment to a lowered setting of their choosing thereby eliminating the risk of their helmet visors or respirator masks interfering with the shouldering, aiming and firing of their weapon. The FRAMM® is the modular stock to suit all their mission requirements.”
BCB also have plans to produce FRAMM variants for the following firearms in the near future: FN HERSTAL-SCAR, HK-MP5 A2, BERETTA-ARX 160, HK-MP5K-PDW, REMINGTON-ACR, CZ-805 A1 BREN, SIG SAUER-550/551.., SIG SAUER MCX, B&T-APC556.
