If anyone has this stock installed with a hammerhead grip, I'd like to see it.

An important observation about this new stock is that the enhanced rubber butt-pad (optional) that fits on the carbine MOE stocks (as well as the ACS and UBR stocks) DOES NOT fit on the fixed MOE rifle length stock. Magpul needs to get a jump on making this distinction clear as current advertising is a bit misleading.

Heres is a pick of the enhanced butt-pad for the carbine MOE;


Here is a pic of the butt of the rifle length fixed MOE stock with the factory pad removed. As you can see, there is no way the carbine MOE enhanced pad will fit.


If you want to add an extended rubber pad to the fixed rifle MOE stock, you need to get the extended rubber butt pad for the PRS stock like the one below.

Happened to have an A1, A2 and MOE Rifle stocks sitting here so I threw them on the postal scale. All stocks were weighed with mounting hardware but without buffer tube, buffer and spring.

A1 Stock = 11.9oz
A2 Stock = 13.2 oz
MOE Rifle = 14.0 oz

Palmetto already has the new MOE Rifle stock kit for sale. Includes stock, buffer tube, spring, and buffer for $89.99, plus $6.00 shipping.

Have both the ACE Skeleton, and ARUL. I have to admit both are great stocks (so if you go that route, you wont be disapointed).

With that said, I also ordered a Magpul stock last night online haha.

I usually am not a fan of fixed stocks, but my next build I've been planning as a 20" and a solid stock just seems appropriate. I was going to go A2 until I saw this. Really liking this.

Agreed.

I just traded my MOE for an A2. Im so much happier.

Not that the adjustable MOE was bad, it just felt a little weak. PLus I never really adjusted it.

The A2 was brand new and feels so much sturdier. Plus it has a compartment for a LPK and spare springs and what not

The A2 just makes the rifle look better...But this butt stock is a close second. I like it but the design is a little weird looking.

Took the rifle length MOE stock out for the first time today and am really happy with it. I found it balances my 18" spr build perfectly, and the curved surface of the butt automatically centered the rifle on my shoulder much better than a flat A1/A2 butt stock does.

Also, the storage compartment is huge and opens much easier than an A2 style, but still locks solidly in place. There is no way one of these is going to accidentally come open and dump contents. If Magpul is smart, they will engineer some sort of accessory insert designed to carry certain items in this space while keeping them from rattling around.

Overall, my impression is that these are very solid quality stocks and a good upgrade for anyone running a fixed stock/featureless build. I like mine enough to have already ordered a second for a .308 build.

Wow! Thanks guys for all the pictures with the different grips and comparisons against the A1&2 stocks!!!

I'm holding out for more colors, I strongly thinking of replacing my UBR on my 20" with this new stock.

Make it a MOE KISS rifle. The MOE handguards usually fits much nicer than the creaky standard ones.

What is the OAL for each of these? I'm confused as to which is longer, shorter, etc.

What is the difference in (added) length between these butt pads - the one that comes stock vs. this extended one?

I am looking for the longest LOP possible...

I'm running a carbine tube, tubbs spring, and spikes buffer in my 6.8. Would I have any trouble running those parts in the rifle length tube ? The research I have done says the spring will work, just can't find info about the buffer.

I'm waiting for the OD green stock to show up at my local shop.. I'm going featureless also, but I'm making my own custom fitted aluminum "fin" permanently attached to the large backstrap of the MIAD grip.

I just got an OD moe stock for mine, I really like it. I haven't decided for sure to go featureless yet but I'm 1 step closer, plus I never adjusted my collapsable stock. I was excited when I saw this stock, still kinda A2-ish but a bit more modern looking.

The only problems I ran into:

1. This stock makes me really rethink all my bullet button rifles with collapsible stocks. Plus the cheekweld is just so much better. I wish the UBE were lighter.

2. It makes the overall length of my rifles a bit longer and I can no longer use a couple of my soft rifle cases to carry them fully assembled instead of broken between lower and upper (not really a fault but an issue I ran into nontheless).

Anyone know who has a A2 buffer kit in stock?

Now that the other Magpul MOE Fixed colors have been released.. it's time to buy, but I need an A2 buffer kit.

I ordered my A2 stuff (tube, spring and rifle buffer) from Primary arms along with the new magpul stock. I was glad to receive armalite parts instead of dpms.

I'm not familiar with these. What is it about the RRA Operator A2 that you like and how does it compare to the Magpul?
