Artist's Description

Stacking Arms is Term a used by military infantry to describe how they store there main battle rifle. It is usually with 3 rifles and can be 4-5 but the correct position is 3. Each type of rifle will have a specific way they are to be stacked. At the end of the muzzle or close to if not on the tip of the forearm is either a stacking ring or ‘’stacking swivel’’, it doubles as a place to hook a sling. This form of keeping rifles out of the dirt and mud has been around since the dawn of rifles and is still used today by the most advanced infantry divisions around the globe.
