Blacktail / Blacktail New Manufacure

The biggest difference between Blacktail sets are the condition and price.  These sets look great but do not have the Original USGI quality.

This is the Blacktail buttstock.  This buttstock has no foam core.  The sling swivel slot is cut out differently for adjustable use of the sling.  It uses an A2 sling swivel screw instead of the A1.  There is more room to store items but not having the foam core produces a different weight and feel than the other two types of buttstocks.
