I am looking for some pictures of our soldiers using the Magpul stock in Iraq. Could someone please send me some links to pictures? Thank you for your help.

Pictures of soldiers using a M93 Magpul stock in any theater of operations would be appreciated.

There were some pics of some MEU USMC soldiers with them a while ago. Bravo Company was selling the stocks.

That pic was in a SWAT magazine article by Pat Rogers about the Kimber pistol that Marine Corp DET. 1 bought.

I was hoping to find more pictures of soldiers with magpul stocks. I thought the military was using a considerable amount of the M93 stock. Thank you to those that have responded so far.

I think one reason for the lack of pictures is due to the fact that some of the operators who use the stock don't like to be photographed. Richard from Magpul will probably see this thread and might have some pics.

BTW, why exactly are you looking for said pics? Just curious.

I had originally thought that the Magppul stock had been issued in limited numbers to regular troops, especially Marine MEUs. I have recently purchased a M93B from Triggerfin and wanted some photo proof that the military had purchased a few of the stocks. I like to keep my rifles in military issue set ups.

FWIW, I have not heard of the MagPul stocks being in use on any branch or deployment

doesn't mean much (nothing actually) but I read a bunch on related topics.

Maybe other Magpul products (ranger plates, MagPul, rail covers, magazine followers, etc)

Now I have seen a lot of private contractors with the Magpul stocks. And they also have their lives on the line, and can buy anything they want - money being no object - and they often choose Magpul

The Magpul M93 has been adopted and has a NSN. That's why you can't bring it out of the States anymore unless you have an export permit.

Inside info says that there are a ton of these in service now. As a matter of a fact I've heard that Naval EOD has purchased 100's...not a joke either. The Det 1 fella's were the first as far as I know. There was quite a bit of interest by all branches of the armed forces (excluding the CG) at the Shot Show this year. That is where EOD got hooked.

I prefer to keep my rifles "mil-spec" too but sometimes the military doesn't have the best gear or, more specifically, the best gear for you.

If you like the stock and it fulfills your needs, that's all that matters, right?

You are right!! I like the M93B better than my A2 fixed stock, and plan to use it whether the military decides to or not. If a person can afford one, it is the most solid retractable stock out there.

There are lots of LMT stocks issued, if that helps at all. I think LMT calls it the SOPMOD stock, but I'd have to look it up to verify the nomenclature.
