Magpul AK Stocks

Overview of the Magpul AK Stock Development

In recent years, Magpul has noticed the increase in popularity of the Kalashnikov patterned rifles.  While the AR-15 is still America’s rifle, the AK is take large strides at becoming more and more popular.  Noticing this trend in the market place, Magpul has began to expand their line of products that was previously solely aimed at the AR-15.  Magpul first released grips and an AK-47 magazine, however, they have most recently released a set of handguards, as well as the Zhukov and MOE AK stocks.  As with other Magpul stocks, these stocks are primarily composed of polymer and are known for their durability, relatively light weight and excellent value for the price. For more specifics on these AK stocks, continue reading below.

Mapgul MOE AK Stock


The Magpul AK stock is designed to be compatible with AK-47/AKM/AK-74 patterned rifles with a stamped receiver and a fixed stock with single tang trunnion.  While the MOE AK stock will fit into most applications without issue, due to the variable specifications of different manufactured AK’s, your particular application may require minor fitting.  Please note that, due to the difference in the trunnion tang, this Magpul stock is not compatible with Chinese Norinco Type 56S/MAK-90 rifles.


The Magpul MOE AK stock has the same wedge block design as seen on the Zhukov-S Magpul AK Stock.  This wedge block provides a sturdy mounting surface for the stock, giving it a solid feel. 

Enhanced Shooter Comfort

The Magpul AK stock was designed from the ground up to be comfortable for the shooter.  Starting at the back of the stock, the read butt plate has a rubber butt pad.  This rubber padding enhances shock absorption and also provides an increased traction surface.  This rubber surface helps to prevent the stock from sliding off your shoulder when firing. 

The Magpul MOE AK stock was engineered to be able to adapt to different situations.  This stock is able to accept optional cheek risers.  These cheek risers will allow you to set up your AK so that you can get an appropriate cheek weld and sight picture when using certain optics.

Convenient Features

The MOE Magpul AK Stock has several features that make thing easier for you.  For instance, the stock has an integrated internal storage compartment.  This storage compartment is designed to fit factory AK cleaning kits.

Another handy features is the rolled toe on the butt plate of the stock.  This rolled toe makes shoulder to shoulder transitions much easier.  It allow for greater clearance so that you are less likely to snag the toe of the stock when transitioning.

The stock has an A-Frame design.  This design style has several benefits.  For one, it reinforces the stock and ensures that this stock will be able to put up with a great amount of force.  The A-Frame design also reduces the chances of getting your stock snagged on a piece of equipment.

Magpul Zhukov-S AK Folding Stock

Compatibility of the Magpul AK Stock

The Magpul Zhukov stock is designed to be mounted to most stamped AK patterned rifles with a fixed stock and single tang trunnion.  Due to the somewhat variable specifications and tolerances associated with the wide variety of AK manufacturers, minor fitting may be necessary for your particular application.  Please note that this Magpul stock is not compatible with the Norinco Type56S/MAK-90.  The incompatibility is due to the differences in the trunnion’s tang.


The Magpul AK stock gives your AK a significant increase in modularity.  The Zhukov has an adjustable length of pull to allow it to be fitted to multiple shooter of various sizes.  The stock has 5 different positions for length of pull that can be set from ~12.2” to ~14.8”.  The adjustment lever used to adjust the length of pull is very streamlined and integrated well into the stock.  This was done to make the adjustment lever unobtrusive and avoid and snagging hazards.

To allow for easy transportation and storage, the Magpul AK stock can be folded to the right side of the rifle to create a reduced profile.  With the stock folded, the rifle can still be manipulated and fired, as long as the optional cheek risers are not installed.  The folding mechanism is extremely robust and has a fixed stock lockup.  This provides you with a consistent cheek weld in all positions.  For increased strength and durability for the folding mechanism, a solid steel hinge pin is used.

 Enhanced Shooter Comfort

The Magpul AK Zhukov-s Stock has man integrated features that make it more ergonomic for the shooter.  Starting from the rear, the stock has a rubber butt pad.  This pad acts as a slip-resistant surface the helps to keep the stock firmly mounted to your shoulder.  The butt plate of the stock has a rolled toe.  This increases clearance space and allows for easier shoulder to shoulder transitions.  The rolled toe also allows for a better shoulder mount when wearing body armor.

Taking advantage of every part of the stock, the engineers at Magpul also paid special attention to the cheek weld surface.  The cheek weld surface has a relatively flat and wide cheek rest area.  This gives the shooter a large, comfortable spot to find a cheek weld.  If you use optics with your AK, Magpul has optional cheek risers available that you can use to attain the proper cheek riser height.

 Multiple Sling Options

The Magpul Zhukov has multiple options for sling integration.  Near the front left portion of the stock, Magpul has designed in an integrated anti-rotation QD sling socket.  This socket will accept a (not included) QD sling swivel.  In addition to this, the rear of the stock has a location that will accept optional Type 1 & Type 2 QD sling mounts.  If you are a more traditional shooter and want to run a direct attach sling, the bottom of the stock has an integrated 1.25” sling loop.
