MAGPUL MOE Stock Upgrade
« on: September 07, 2016, 10:57:03 AM »
My Windham Weaponry (herein referred to as simply WW) "SRC" and Ruger AR556 MSRs had been upgraded to the MAGPUL MOE fixed stock. However, I was not comfortable with using a slip-on recoil pad to provide me with the LOP that I prefer, which is longer than most 6-position stocks.

Recently, I had ordered the 0.80" PRS Extended Butt-Pad for the WW as a test purchase. The test was successful and the WW SRC now has a 14" length of pull, which is right in my ballpark.  A second 0.90" PRS Extended Butt-Pad was ordered for the Ruger AR556 and should be in shortly.

For those who like a one piece stock rather than an adjustable stock for their MSR, I can highly recommend the MAGPUL MOE Fixed Stock. Extended Butt-Pads are available in 0.70"' and 0.80" and they use existing hardware to mount.

The fact that the GOVERNMENT would even consider removing the natural right to bear arms is the very reason why the 2nd Amendment was written.

Very nice!

I have to share my AR with the girls (funny... they don't use the 45-70 much...) so the adjustable LOP is pretty often used. I'd be interested in increasing the max LOP though as even fully extended it is a tad short and neither of the girls fully collapses the stock when they shoot.

Do those same pads work on the adjustable version of the MOE stock?

This might work: https://www.magpul.com/products/enhanced-rubber-butt-pad

According to MAGPUL: "The Magpul Enhanced Rubber Butt-Pad, 0.70" is an optional replacement butt pad for the CTR® and MOE® Mil-Spec stocks as well as all STR®, ACS-L™, ACS™ and UBR® stocks."

Thanks Taurian,

That does look like it would work.

I've even considered buying some 3/8" or 1/2" plastic and getting to work with the band saw and the belt sander but this may be a less expensive and easier option.
