Description

Details

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 round 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.

The kit is a Hybrid design utilizing either our Standard or Enhanced Buffer Tube Cover kits and the Command Arms SST1 Stock Saddle. The two are joined together using a specially designed adapter kit and all of the original mounting hardware. 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 CAA Saddle, Buffer Tube Cover, and adapter are now pre-assembled in house with new, easy to follow, instructions on the inside flap of the new header card.

COMPATIBILITY:

  • DOES NOT FIT ANY BUFFER TUBE OVER 1.18" IN DIAMETER
  • Fits any pistol buffer tube between 1.16" and 1.18" diameter
  • Fits any standard Commercial or Mil-Spec carbine buffer tube
 

FEATURES:

  • Provides ergonomic cheek weld
  • 2 Quick Detach Sling hard points (Enhanced Pistol Cheek Rest Kit only)
  • 2 water tight storage compartments

  • Instructions and mounting hardware included

ATF ADVISORY

The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives, Technology Branch has affirmed that the Thordsen Customs Buffer Tube Cover/CAA Saddle combination is a CHEEK 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.

Stellar Cheek Rest KitReview by Andy
Removed existing my buffer tube and had the keyed buffer tube and the enhanced kit with CAA saddle installed in very short time.

Excellent fit and finish all around. Affords a very comfortable feel and a very quick transition from the retired Sig brace.

My AR 15 pistol is now a totally different firearm. May consider this for 9mm AR pistol. (Posted on 10/8/2016)

Black enhanced kit. Really nice quality. Fair price. Made my pistol perfect. Been using it for 6 months zero issues. I recommend this kit all the time. (Posted on 6/30/2016)
Ak pistolReview by Will
The letter says nothing about slapping this on a draco ak pistol(which it doesn't need the buffer to operate) I want one but I feel it is illegal....nice set-up tho!

--The Pistol Cheek Rest Kits are approved for use on all pistols. The following was taken from page 3 paragraph 3 of the BATFE response letter.
"The receiver extension/buffer tube on an AR-type pistol serves a legitimate, vital function in the operation of the weapon system; and if utilized as originally designed is not considered to be a shoulder stock. Further, a pistol that has an AR-type buffer tube or similar component
assembled to it, which consequently allows for the installation of a saddle/cheek enhancement accessory, is not classified as a SBR; nor unlawful to possess."
