What do you consider "heavy?". Off of the top of my head, they're about 6-7 oz. heavier than an standard M4 stock which can really help to balance a nose heavy (rail system w/VFG) rifle.

For more info, check out this thread:

great thread thanks

i like mine

very solid stock. no rattle. looks badass. worth every penny.
Link Posted: 8/28/2005 10:25:50 PM EDT
no rattle.. great cheekweld, 3 point sling mount..

the weight balances my carbine quite nicely actually... and the added surface area of the stock improves the handling of recoil(what little there is)..

all in all I like it

It was expensive, but the company is known for their exceptional customer service and great warranty

the stock is solid as a rock!!!!!!!!

<­BR>no doubt about it!

Its not as easily adjusted as a SOPMOD type stock. I tend to think of mine as a fixed stock that I can adjust. I like mine-but I'll use it on long range setups and a SOPMOD stock on the CQB type stuff.

Because the Magpul stock has tabs that allow the user to set a preset LOP, I would have to disagree with your assessment. Just my opinion of course.

Best damn $250 you'll spend on your AR.

It great for breaking through windows or so I am told.

I just got mine as well but really like it so far!

Awesome stock - solid, comfortable and it even collapses for storage.

The tab wears out. Its still not quite as easily adustable. My opinin of course.
Link Posted: 8/29/2005 3:36:13 PM EDT
Oh yeah, one more thing. Its no big deal with the MagPul to beat it into the gravel to clear a stuck bolt. It fucks up the checkering on the toe of the stock, but thats all.

Excellent. Please be sure to get back to us with what you think of it after you receive it and have shot with it.

A wise choice, Sir.

well put it on today that was little more involved than i figured
pretty neat still not sure if is worh 2.5x the money of a 6 pos but heck you do not see alot of them

Installing your first one always involves a bit of learning curve. I was on the phone with Richard twice when I installed my first one.

I don't know what to say regarding the worth of the stock compared to a standard M4 stock. Worth or value is very subjective and only you can decide if it's worth it to you. I think it's worth will become more apparent once you go out and shoot with it for a little while.

BTW, if you don't mind me asking, where did you purchase it from?
Link Posted: 8/31/2005 7:48:15 PM EDT
Definatly worth it to me. Its easier to adjust than a SOPMOD stock to your preset. Going longer turns into a two hand job though. Really keeps the balance over the mag well on a carbine. Cant go wrong. Suprised no pictures yet.

Do you need to quickly adjust the stock during CQB drills? Why?

Are you doing this for unusual shooting positions you get into and then switch it back when you move?

What's your CQB stock SOP?
Link Posted: 9/1/2005 8:38:06 AM EDT
I very, very rarely adjust my stock. Pretty much I only change settings when I change from a sweatshirt to a t shirt. However, even the Sully stock is too long for me, and the short fixed stocks too short. The magpul splits the difference.
Link Posted: 9/1/2005 9:21:13 AM EDT

Okay, I was thinking you might change lengths when you got into those uber Pat Rogers fire from your back and on your side positions. There the closest thing to break dancing with your AR.

LOL, supine, rollover and SBU prone. No, I left the stock in the third position for that. I wouldn't have time to ajust it in a gunfight, why should I on the range?

On a side note, with a 1" spacer on the back of a SOPMOD stock, placed in the first pos., the cheek weld and length are perfect for me.

FWIW, one man I know said that end users in the Litter Box were having sand problems with the Magpul. He advised the SOPMOD.

The Magpul weighs 17 ozs. while the SOPMOD weighs 16 and the VLTOR is 10.

I find being able to collapse the stock all the way for transport a useful feature.

M93B's are O.K., I guess
