My personal opinion, but those Magpul stocks for the 700 are some of the ugliest stocks I've seen. I also believe that Magpul quality isn't what it used to be. I have a 7.62AC magazine, and it doesn't feed well at all.

If someone would make reproduction fiberglass stocks, that would be great. Injection molded fiberglass is the easiest way to keep costs down. Look at Grayboe, they are making McMillan A5 clone stocks for 1/3 the cost of a Mcmillan. Those stocks are high quality, rigid, and hard to tell they're injection molded.

I started this thread some time ago:

Aftermarket Synthetic Stocks

You might find something of interest in it. The Delta14 stock looks pretty light. Not sure how stiff it is compared with other stocks.

Thanks from Pvt Wojtek

Not to get entirely off subject, but do I remember correctly that there someone on here that was developing a carbon fiber stock ?

They already did it, I think they are called AG composites...

Current MSRP (1/25/17) on the AG Composites Stock is around $639. We were hoping for a more economical option on the market, by about half.

DID is the key word. They are no longer producing them as the 700 stock seems to be yielding them more money.

It was me lol. Only way I think a polymer mag would work.

As for a stock I would like to see a traditional stock like Mcmillan with aluminum bedding. And a tactical stock with adjustable cheek riser, picatiny rails, custom handguards, collapsable stock, folding stock, fixed stock options, pistol grip, and no pistol grip, also with aluminum bedding.

Thanks from Wasted ammo

I like your line of thinking wojtek. I think if someone made a traditional style quality M1A stock with a good pricepoint,it would be a big seller. The only option for anyone under $400 is a usgi which needs refinishing and will eventually be gone, and an archangel. I wish Hogue would make one too, I really like their stocks.

Aren't boyds like $100 range? Are a couple more options in the sub 400 range.


I'm not in the market for a magpul stock. Frankly I have enough USGI stocks to last another 10 rifles. Take one to a gunshow to try to sell or trade and left with another.

I contacted Magpul on 2/18/16 inquiring about the possibility of an M14 stock similar to what they are doing for the M700.

Here was Magpul's reply:

- Thank you for contacting us. At this time there are no plans to make any products for the M1A/M14 rifles. I will pass your request along to my supervisor. Please let me know if there is anything else that I can help you with. -


My guess is that the numbers aren't there in terms of sales projections. Probably need to sell tens-of-thousands of units to make it worth the investment required to bring a new product to market.

...that

...or they just hate us.

;)

What would be nice is something like the Magpul Hunter 700 stock for the M14, any thoughts?
Why not just buy a USGI fiberglass or a poly now instead of worrying what happens after they are no longer available. Seems like you are looking for a solution for a problem that doesn't exist yet.

I mostly agree as I'm currently using an SAI polymer stock and there's a lot I like about it...namely it's weight.

But to your point there is in fact an existing problem for me: configurability.

In short I would like to have an easy way to mount a weapon light and a side-mounted sling.

A relatively lightweight, polymer stock with M-LOK fore and QD points aft would solve this.

Keep your eyes peeled for a socom cqb stock to pop up.
