MULE Tactical unveils AR15 hidden Glock stock

What separates the MULE stock from traditional ones, is the concealed holster inside. Attached by a large pin and clasp, the holster pivots along a hinge to reveal a backup pistol. Allowing the shooter to store both his primary and secondary weapons together.
