Rob Ski puts the new Magpul AK furniture to the test. The results are thought-provoking:
Something I have reiterated a few times in the comments section is a basic aphorism about folding stocks that is borne out by this video:
“Durability, lightness, cheapness, ergonomics. Pick three.”
Magpul’s AK folding stocks are light, ergonomic, and cheap enough. What they lack is a level of durability necessary for military service. While I would not be too concerned about the use of this stock by civilians, the stock is vulnerable when folded, which is a serious drawback for vehicle crews, paratroops, and other personnel that will use the rifle primarily with the stock folded.
