Made of lightweight, fiber-reinforced black Zytel, the Pardus buttstock has four integral slots for sling attachment, in addition to the standard sling swivel, making it completely customizable to the needs of both left-handed and right-handed shooters. Shooters can customize their length of pull with the six-position buffer tube. Adjusting the tube with cold or gloved fingers just got easier too as DPMS has designed a more ergonomically shaped latch with fully integrated finger grooves. Shooters will also notice the curved, saw-tooth buttplate which allows them to pull the rifle to the shoulder more securely, providing for a tighter cheek weld to the comfortably flared, Monte Carlo-style cheek rest. There is also a reinforced area surrounding the latch pin, providing additional strength to the latch pin and helping it resist breakage should the rifle ever be dropped buttstock down.
