To the ends of the earth – the mountaintops, vast deserts, wind-swept glaciers and jungles deep. The need to seek out these remote places is what fuels our pursuit of low-mass solutions.
We find ourselves inspired by technology. Advancements in materials and manufacturing are allowing for stronger, lighter and more intelligently-designed products than ever before. The blacktooth stock is our first step into the market – don't expect us to stop there.
The Forty-Four in our name comes from where we started – in the mountains of the 44th state and on the 44th parallel. Roused by our love of the backcountry, we exist to equip adventurers with the finest products available for when the invitations of the wild draw them further.
3D HEX® Recoil Pad
Available as an upgrade to the Blacktooth stock, the second generation 3DHEX recoil pad kills recoil unlike any pad on the market today. The first recoil pad to employ additive manufacturing at the production level, its interlocking series of 3D printed structures give its interior a distinctive honeycomb look. This set of collapsible voids function to stretch the time component of recoil, deadening what would be a sharp kick with other pads. Another benefit of such an open structure is the 3DHEX’s light weight when compared to similarly-sized pads.
ROCK SOLID CARBON LINK™
Bonded to the outer shell and working in tandem with a set of aluminum pillars, this slip of carbon takes the place of a much larger and heavier aluminum bedding block. The RSCL allows recoil impulses to transfer directly from the recoil lug of the action to the outer shell of the stock, enabling the use of lighter weight fill material throughout the stock shell. This lighter fill is just one reason the Blacktooth is the lightest production carbon fiber stock on the market.
CARBON FIBER SHELL
With a blend of weaves and styles of carbon fiber, the Blacktooth’s outer shell lends extreme strength to the stock while comprising less than half its total weight.
