First Look: Magpul PRS Lite Stock

posted on January 12, 2021
Magpul recently introduced the PRS Lite Stock, which is built with many of the same features and adjustability as the PRS Gen 3 Precision-Adjustable Stock at a lighter weight. Likewise, the PRS Lite Stock comes in at roughly half the price of the original Gen 3 variant. 

The PRS Lite stock is intended for use with carbine/SR25/A5 extension tubes and is built to military standards. As such, the new stock is compatible with .223 and .308 receiver-pattern rifles. The stock weighs 10 ounces less than the PRS Gen 3 and provides shooters with .8 inches of comb height with 1.4 inches of length of pull adjustment. 

The PRS Lite offers multiple attachment points for slings, including an ambidextrous 1.25-inch footman's loop, reversible QD sling swivel cup, and room for another QD sling swivel cup. A low-profile rubber butt-pad is adjustable for height and cant, giving shooters a stable interface with the shoulder.

  • Adjustable comb height (adjusts from flush to +.8 inch in .1-inch increments)
  • Weight: 18.2 ounces
