Magpul continues to beat us over the head with new products leading into SHOT Show 2016 and that is one beating we will all happily take. Their latest announcement is the MOE SL-S Stock – a new version of the MOE SL that has battery storage functionality. Other notable features include a slimmer design than most stocks with battery tubes and ability to fully collapse on a Vltor A5 length tube. It is great to see the preeminent AR-15 stock maker designing stocks around the excellent A5 system.
This looks like a great addition to the growing MOE SL line.
The storage-capable version of the flagship Magpul MOE SL™ carbine stock, the MOE SL-S (Storage) Stock is a direct replacement buttstock for AR15/M4 carbines.
The sleek profile, dual-side release latches, and waterproof battery tubes make it the slimmest storage tube stock available. The SL-S provides an enhanced cheek weld and true, O-ring sealed, 10m waterproof storage area desired by many, but fits it into the narrowest package possible to allow a more upright head position and minimize bulk. A rolled toe and angled rubber butt-pad are optimized for use with body armor, and an ambidextrous QD sling swivel socket is included. A unique leaf-spring tension system provides a solid fit on mil-spec receiver extensions, with slightly less friction than the original SL. The MOE SL-S is the most intuitive, comfortable, and efficient storage stock available.
