Posted 28 February 2019 · Add Comment

The company behind a versatile rifle stock called the FRAMM have confirmed that the elite French police tactical unit, the GIGN, have selected the modular stock for their H&K G36 and HK-UMP rifles.

Riot and ballistic face shields are essential for law enforcement officers in active shooter and riot control scenarios. The  problem with these face shields is that once fully lowered they interfere with the assault rifles and/or less-lethal baton round guns that armed officers are equipped with.

BCB International Ltd, have 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.

BCB International’s FRAMM Project Manager, Philippe Minchin, said:  “Since production was launched in late 2018,  orders have been received from elite tactical units like the GIGN whose officers use ballistic helmets with face shields.  We offer multiple variants of the stock to fit onto most in service firearms.

“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.”

Production has been launched for the H&K G36, B&T 40x46 and HK-UMP variants of the stock.

Production of FRAMM variants for the following firearms is planned 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
