Thank you, I'll check them out.

Edited to add:

Barracuda and Evolution stocks are all they list for the TD. No traditional sporter stocks.

I like mine a lot, shoots well and looks good. Not the lightest kit but it feels like a real rifle.

Thanks for the tip on the Soprano Ukulele case being a good fit, lots of funny incognito options that aren't expensive and quite discreet.

I'd still like to find a fiber optic front and iron rear that will fit on the front end (not the receiver) and be the right height. Apparently some of the fiber optic sights sold by Williams are too tall (I also rather keep both front and rear sights on the barrel).

The other thing that would be nice would be a rubber or silicone plug to protect the muzzle and crown.

Any suggestions? Thanks

Optic Mount

With the Magpul Backpacker comes the ability to use Magpul's Optic Mount.

Anyone using the Optic Mount? Any problems returning to point of aim after breakdown and reassembly?

Considering it seems to be survival-oriented setup, I find it surprising that barrel and receiver are open to elements when folded. I would expect some kind of cap, similar to magazine dust cover, to be provided or at least available as optional accessory.

I donít think these are really survival oriented. Iím guessing since itís called the Backpacker, the idea was to make something that could easily and nearly fit in a backpack or a camping pack vs a bugout bag.

According to Magpul webpage: "for the hunter or outdoorsman". They included protection for chamber and even waterproof storage in the grip. It would seem fitting to provide some cover for the receiver as well.

Its called a waterproof back pack. Which I assume almost all hunters & outdoorsmen already have. I think that was the intended idea from Magpul with this stock, hence the name backpacker!

It's called very clean waterproof backpack, I would say Or perhaps I'm not as tidy as all other hunters/outdoorsmen, because mine backpack would protect it's content from elements, but at the same time inside of it there's almost always some lint, pine needles and other debris that can get into the receiver.

Anyway, I think it shouldn't be too hard or expensive for Magpul to provide some kind of protection for the receiver... but perhaps I'm the only one that would find it useful.

By the way: Magpul Backpacker has an insert which you can remove to accomodate bull barrel, right?

My question might be stupid, but still...

If you have standard barrel is it better to leave this insert or remove it anyway?
Wouldn't removing it free-float your barrel and improve overall accuracy?

The insert is literally the size of a small button, probably weighs in the realm of a single gram, and supports an OE, standard or tapered barrel from the bottom.

Unless you have a rear tang, unsupported, it would probably cause the receiver to cant forward from the weight of the barrel.
