Next up...a new stock and grip:

The fixed stock is designed to go over a carbine buffer tube and will be the least expensive in the Magpul line-up with an MSRP of $49. It comes with two options for the piece that goes directly behind the castle nut. The one in the photo below, which allows for use with the Magpul ASAP, and a second one (not pictured) that doesn't have the notched out portion.

The new grip is the K2 -- it has more of a back strap than the first Kgrip, but keeps the more "upright" angle for wrist relief when using an "elbow in" technique.

Magpul is getting into AK's now too with anther new grip. I've never been a huge AK fan mainly because of the ergonomics. This grip feels a lot less awkward than any other AK grip I've tried.

What is the length of the fixed stock?

From the photo, it looks like it would be equivalent to the LOP of a collapsible stock pulled to about the third notch and thus quite a bit shorter than Magpul's other fixed stock., or am I seeing things wrong?
