Handl Defense Mk 17 Stock Hinge is another public release from the Mk.17/ Mk.20 Enhancement Program. Intended for USSOCOM, the Handl Defense Mk 17 Stock Hinge converts the factory polymer hinge of the FN SCAR® Mk.16/ Mk.17/ 16S/ and 17S and similar styled rifles to an alloy hinge. The Handl Defense Stock Hinge improves the function and strength of the hinge assembly.
The Handl Defense Mk 17 Stock Hinge provides a tighter interface with the OEM butt stock assembly. This provides a more solid feel while manipulating the weapon, and eliminating the chance of failure of the hinge due to excessive recoil impacts on the OEM polymer hinge.
The polymer stock hinge takes the massive impact of the bolt carrier during recoil, especially when using a suppressor. Particulars of the alloy design are capable of sustaining much higher stress loads.
The Handl Defense Mk 17 Stock Hinge reinforces the interface between the hinge and receiver rear plate assembly. This also assists with the heavy impact from rifle grenades such as the AC58 and FN Herstal Telgren. This eliminates the possibility of a failure of the butt stock assembly.
The OEM assembly is capable of withstanding 65lbs of pressure applied to the actual stock. The Handl Defense counterpart is capable of holding 120lbs of pressure applied to the actual stock with OEM button. We also added the ability to utilize a quick detach sling at the 6 o’clock position.
The Handl Defense Mk 17 Stock Hinge also has the added benefit of suppressing the felt recoil impulse. Due to the different design and tensile strength of the aluminum alloy, it allows the stock buffer assembly to work more effectively.
