As we get closer to SHOT Show 2016, the press releases on new products are rolling out like thunderstorms over the prairies of the west. Wait, sorry, I got caught up in the unique marketing that Magpul is known for. Let’s get to the facts on their new Precision Rifle Stock GEN3 (PRS GEN3):
An optimized update of the revolutionary Magpul Precision Rifle Stock (PRS) for the AR15/M4 and SR-25 platforms, the PRS GEN3 is compatible
with carbine, rifle, and A5-length receiver extensions for unrivaled compatibility. Featuring tool-less adjustments for comb height and length
of pull, rotation-limited QD sling mounts, and a height and cant-adjustable rubber butt pad, the PRS GEN3 remains the finest precision stock
available for AR-pattern weapons.
The PRS GEN3 is a field precision stock for AR15/M16 and AR10/SR25 platforms, featuring tool-less length of pull and cheek piece height adjustment.
With solid adjustments for length of pull and cheek piece height via aluminum detent knobs, the PRS GEN3 (Precision Rifle/Sniper) stock provides a stable interface and is intended for semi-automatic sniper or varmint type rifles. Offering a nearly universal fit, it installs on rifle-length receiver extensions as well as mil-spec carbine and A5-length tubes. Includes a cant/height-adjustable rubber butt-pad and rotation-limiting QD sling swivel cups as well as M-LOK slots on the bottom for rear monopod mounting.
