If you follow our blog, you already know that here at Omaha Outdoors we are big supports of the “build your own AR” group. We love being able to design our own custom rifles and building ones that are really well-fitted for specific jobs. With that in mind, we are always on the lookout for new parts that might help with this job. Among companies that make those parts, Magpul is one brand that you can always trust to deliver. So, as they announce the new MOE SL-S stock, it makes sense that we would want to cover it.
Used By So Many Builders
When it comes to rifle parts, Magpul is trusted by many independent shooters who want quality parts for their build. But, perhaps just as important, these parts are often utilized by those factory-made performance models. Many competition AR builders use Magpul because they know it can deliver. For the tactical operator, the Magpul MOE SL stock was always a good option, but now they have found a way to make it even better.
The New Slimline Storage Stock
In case you haven’t had the change to see it, this ad from Magpul does a phenomenal job of getting the message across and should make it clear why we are excited about this release. Using the original MOE SL stock, Magpul reworked the design to ensure they could provide battery storage compartments. Without making the stock too bulky, they were able to make this upgrade and more. As explained in the video, this stock was designed as the perfect innovation for wartime operations, providing a water-tight platform to keep the storage area safe while delivering a comfortable buttstock that could take the beating of real-world use.
The New Magpul MOE SL-S Features
By the numbers, the stock features a lightweight and slim platform that will be welcomed by any battlefield operator. It weighs only 12.8 ounces and measures up to 7.3 inches long. It can be adjusted by 3.3 inches for length of pull and is only 2.4 inches wide. This allows it to maintain the slimline (SL) designation and adds in the handy storage (S) to denote its ability to hold batteries in the stock.
In case you are unfamiliar with Magpul stocks, the battery storage and slim design are just the start of what this platform has to offer. It provides a host of other practical features, including dual side release latches, and an ambidextrous QD sling swivel socket. Those who are really keen on a tactical built will also appreciate the buttpad, which is angled and optimized for use with body armor.
Building Your Next Rifle
So, if you haven’t used a Magpul stock on your AR projects before, now might be the perfect time to try one out. You can be sure I’ll be grabbing one for myself and trying it out on some of my favorite models. Though you might not find situations where the batteries are necessary in everyday civilian life, the option is a nice one to have.
