A lightweight buttstock for the KAS-74U assault rifle. — In-game description

KAS-74U Lightweight Buttstock is a weapon attachment in DayZ. It is potentially found either in military locations, or found attached to the KAS-74U, but can be attached to any KA family rifle.


The KAS-74U Lightweight Buttstock provides the smallest amount of dispersion decrease compared to any other KA-based buttstock, but still retains a standard recoil reduction. This means it provides advantages over having no buttstock, but is best replaced when finding any other compatible buttstock.
