first got my M-11/NINE I was weary of the factory collapsible
stock included with the gun. I had heard horror stories
about them collapsing on shooters while firing the gun
After fiddling around
with the factory stock for a bit I could see how this
could easily happen so I went shopping for a replacement
I wanted some thing that
look liked it belonged on the gun but was functionally
sound enough that I would not run into any safety issues.
Practical Solutions had
the perfect stock for me, their “UZI style”
side folding stock for the M-11/NINE not only looks
like it belongs on the M-11 but functions great.
The stock was on my doorstep
a few days after I placed my order because Practical
Solutions uses 2-3 day priority shipping.
The shipping box was
unremarkable from the outside, which is a good thing
since you don’t want post office employees with
sticky hands to get some thing for free. The product
was well protected because it was enveloped by plenty
of packing peanuts and contained in its own sealed bag.
The stock came with all
the hardware necessary for mounting. On mine however
I wanted to keep my “stock mounting block”
on the bottom for other accessories, so keep in mind
that large block on the end of my gun is not part of
the stock but some thing else.
The finish on the stock
matches my M-11/NINE perfectly. The stock and mounting
hardware appear to be of quality construction and not
likely to fail.
This stock also allows
the shooter to use the factory sites and does not interfere
while operating the gun.
The things I disliked
about the stock is that you cannot open it fast enough
in a tactical situation, and with some of the new uppers
coming out it wont close all the way. This really doesn’t
matter though because the only tactical situation my
gun will see is putting holes in old phone books, and
it wasn’t designed for those uppers in the first
Overall the practical
solutions stock is a great addition to your M-11/NINE
if you are looking for a quality stop that won’t
make your gun look “bubbafied”.
