    Will the Moe SL hand guard work with an Adams arms setup?

    There are some very interesting things about this stock that you may not see at first glance. We wanted a fairly bomb-proof, fuller featured stock at the lower end of our price range which worked well with .308 and A5 tubes as well as the conventional carbine length tubes (not that the shorter stocks don't work well with the longer tubes already). This stock started over two years ago as a project targeted for an update to OEM channels, but we all liked it so much, it ended up delayed and morphed into what it is now and a broader release intent. We were looking at the old Colt ACR stock and the XM 177 stock and the simplicity of the lines, and this is where we ended up.

    There are also a lot of other very interesting things in the works in the realm of AR stocks, and elsewhere. We are moving towards being much tighter-lipped about products until they are ready for release.

    To be clear, this stock collapses all the way to the shortest position (covering the buffer tube) on an A5?

    Cool... I'm glad to hear that... I use a lot of Magpul gear and love every piece I have!

    Looks very similar to the BCM stock. I sense a new trend in AR aesthetics. (I am NOT saying either one copied the other, simply stating my OPINION)

    I'm waiting for this to actually be released and available for purchase. Just like the competition to this stock (BCM) I find it frustrating when the product is on the web site, but unavailable for months.

    Both stocks interest me mostly because I'm a furniture-whore, and I'll eventually end up purchasing both, but damn... I think they're both more than a little ugly. Function > Form though...
