Top 10 MagPul Parts

Check out this updated list of the most popular Top 10 Magpul parts to upgrade your AR-15 and get out there and shoot.


Not quite “drop in” as the rear pin requires a fair bit of tapping with the right sized drift pin (size given in the directions) but that means the pin won’t drop out with use.

It was good to be able to upgrade to the MAGPUL enhanced trigger guard.

The front screw appears to have been treated with some thread compound.

It didn’t interfere with screwing it in and, if I’m right in what it is, again a good thing.

I wanted the metal one and got it.

Magpul Industries MBUS Generation II Sight Set Front & Rear Color BLACK

Magpul Quality, Great Price! Great product, very stable and strong for being polymer.

Highly recommend these sights. Fit and finish is great, and not an airsoft knockoff.

Magpul L5 MOE Rail Section, Black
works great if you need to add a rail to your moe i have also used it on a standard foregrip to add a rail at the bottom fit tight and has worked well in both applications. A really good rail for an even better price. I look forward to getting more of the Magpul parts to upgrade my AR-15.

Magpul Enhanced Rubber Buttpad

I have the ACS-L stock and had to add this. It’s far more comfortable, takes less than a minute to install and comes with a new screw with some locktite blue on it. With the cheek weld on the ACS or ACS-L and this enhanced buttpad, you’re in for some comfortable, dreamy shooting. Pics in customer images. Rate if I was helpful and leave any comments or questions you have! Thanks for reading, and happy shooting!

Magpul XTM Hand Stop Kit :
Magpul makes great quality products. This is no exception. The design is exceptional and the grip feels very comfortable. My only wish is that they would include either one more half-piece or substitute the half-piece that came with it with a full piece.

I have big hands and even putting all the flat pieces in between the front and back stops I still needed about a half inch. I just mounted the front stop a half inch forward of the last spacer and it’s fine but it would look and feel better with one more spacer piece in between. I plan to contact the seller. Hopefully they will send me that piece I need. I’ll update this review if and when that happens.

Magpul XTM Enhanced Rail Panel

I made the mistake of ordering four sets of the Standard XTM Magpul Rail covers on eBay and the seller had them listed as .223 XTM Rail covers being made by Magpul, he also had the PTS behind the XTM part so not knowing what the PTS part was about I paid for them and anxiously awaited their arrival.

They came in a plain plastic zip lock with no Magpul documentation or logos or anything, so I pulled my covers off that came with my expensive six railed guards and started mixing an matching colors, black, OD green, FDE, and foliage green and noticed they didn’t work so great and felt light and cheap, couldn’t get them to mount securely even after trying to everything.

This backup sight and my AR’s A2 front sight cowitness perfectly with my Bushnell Holosight (same as Eotech – they make them for Bushnell). It sits very low and does not interfere with the view through the holosight. It does not extend past the T2 rail on my flattop, so there is plenty of room to operate the buttons on the back of the holosight without hanging it off the front of the rail. The flip-up operates very well and the windage adjustment works great. I can’t see spending $200 – $300 for a metal version unless your gun is going to see extreme abuse. Magpul really hit this one out of the park.

Magpul L2 MOE Rail Section

Made of very strong polymer, I was unable to flex this rail by hand. Fits flush on magpul moe hand guard, mounting screws come with thread locker on threads . Easy to install and adjust its location.

Great rail section. Used in conjunction with the moe hand guard you have a light weight railed hand guard for flashlight , laser, bipod whatever you want to hang on your hand guard. I was asked about the dimensions of the rail so I thought I’d add it . The rail section is approximately 7/8 of an inch wide – 2 1/2 inches long – and the screw holes are 1 3/16 inches center to center .

Magpul Ctr Carb Stk Mil-Spec Fde

works better than expected, and i expected allot. I have the cheaper moe stock on one of my ars and its ok. less wobble than the plain jane stock that came with the rifle. but with my new one I wanted rock solid. this stock delivers! once locked down where you want it with the locking lever it stays put with no shimmy shake! my recommendation is spend the extra money and buy this one or any of the locking lever magpul stocks. you won’t be disappointed.

Magpul UBR Aluminum Strike Plate

I have it on a Black Rain Ordnance 6.8 and it lends itself to the overall look of the rifle. Great all around. Easy to install; four screws out, remove old part, insert new part, four screws in, and you’re ready to go. Great if you want to pop somebody in the head with it, or more realistically gain added protection for your UBR stock. Seriously, most of us are not in need of a strike plate, but it sure is cool to have one!
