Magpul Expands Into Traditional Riﬂe Stock Offerings, Including A Model For The Remington 700.
Magpul has expanded into more traditional riﬂe stocks and is taking them to new levels. I was recently sent a Magpul "Hunter" stock for the Remington 700 series riﬂes to test.
Now, admittedly, I'm not much of a hunter. I choose to spend my shooting time a bit more tactically, but with that said, I really do like this stock.
The version I received was in basic black, but other available colors include ﬂat dark earth, stealth gray and olive drab green. This stock features reinforced polymer construction, and includes such unique features as a spacer adjustable length of pull with a range of adjustment from 13 to 15 inches in half-inch increments. That is a wonderful addition to any stock, in my opinion.
I think of myself as an average-sized guy (5-foot-9, 170 pounds), but Ive yet to ﬁnd a stock that ﬁts me out of the box. The ability to simply add or remove spacers to get the gun to ﬁt me the way I like it is an excellent improvement over a "standard" stock. Read the rest of Remington 700 stock.
I have shot several chassis guns but could not afford them. Prices are coming down as more companies are making them, but they're still hundred$ more.
With the Magpul I was able to get a good cheekweld and could get more comfortable behind the gun because I could increase the LOP for my frame.
Downside is you have to remove the risers to clean it (to remove the bolt) - a nice chassis gun you can merely fold the stock out of the way.
I make up for that by just not cleaning it. (JK!!)
Two words: Bore Snake.
Ive got a Mossberg 500A that Id like to put one of these on. But theyve been out of stock for months. The factory stock LOP is just a touch too long for me.
