Magpul recently announced several new products for 2022, just prior to SHOT Show, including the new MOE SL-M Carbine Stock Mil-Spec. 

The MOE SL-M Carbine Stock is a drop-in replacement buttstock for AR-15/M4 Mil-Spec carbine buffer tubes. It was originally developed for those who need an ultra-compact, PDW-style military platform, as well as for users desiring a smaller, lighter, more compact stock. The new MOE SL-M is similar to the SL-K, but it features a shorter and slimmer profile that is optimized for PDW-length receiver extensions.

The SL-M's small, non-slip rubber butt-pad and angled toe support shoulder transitions, especially when utilizing body armor and modular gear. It includes a shielded ambidextrous release latch that minimizes rattle on the receiver extension without requiring additional locks, levers, or springs. 


  • Reinforced polymer construction
  • Reduced size ideal for PDW platforms
  • Internal release latch feature mitigates rattle and wobble
  • Ambidextrous shielded adjustment lever
  • Colors: Black, FDE, ODG
  • Price: $44.95
