The Magpul ACS stock is a versatile, robust drop in replacement for commercial and military specification AR-15 stocks. ACS stands for ‘Adaptable Carbine/Storage’. This M-4 carbine stock is adjustable for length and locks securely using and advanced dual locking lever. The release lever of the Magpul ACS buttstock is positioned under the cheekpiece to prevent accidental actuation and the entire stock is streamlined to prevent snagging. The lever uses an additional cam to stop accidental lever relase or auto collapse. As with the Magpul CTR, an additional friction lock system prevents any wobble.

Two full length battery storage compartment tubes are incorporated in the comb of the stock and each tube will take two AA or three CR-123 batteries. The storage compartments are kept dry by a rubber caps which open to the rear for easy access and are bevelled to prevent snagging on clothing or gear. The comb is contoured to provide a very comfortable and consistent cheek-weld. On the right side of the ACS stock there is a locking trapdoor accessing a large storage compartment where you can keep more batteries, cleaning consumables, boresnakes. spare firing pins etc. Due to the storage arrangements, this stock has fewer sling mounting options than other Magpul stocks, restricted to a 1¼”slot in the toe of the butt and a mounting point for a QD sling mount which can be purchased seperately.
