Best AR-10 Stocks

1. Magpul STR

My favorite adjustable stock is the Magpul STP when weight is not a problem. You’re probably not running and gunning with your AR-10!

MOE STR Stock

It gives the best cheekweld out of all the tested adjustable stocks…check it out when compared with a regular Magpul MOE buttstock.

It’s a little heavier at 12.5 ounces but this heft balances out the more front-heavy AR-10…plus it works well with a rear sandbag. Rear is the same footprint with mild rubber that stays put when needed and doesn’t snag.

I got introduced to this one when I got my PSA AR-10 in .308 (full review) and it also worked great when I got a 6.5 Creedmoor upper too.

My pick if you want a super nice (and repeatable) cheekweld. But still, some adjustability to lower the overall length of your AR-10.

2. Luth AR

Looking for the best bang-for-the-buck fixed AR-10 stock? It’s probably the Luth AR.

Tons of adjustability and a decent cheekweld. Check it out when compared against the MOE.

Rear footprint is roughly the same as the MOE and has the same nice textured rubber.

It’s what I’ve been using on my Aero M5E1 .308 for a while now (full review).

Plus…you can’t beat it for the price…especially when compared against my favorite at the end.

3. Magpul PRS

Now in its 3rd generation…the Magpul PRS is the gold standard for AR-10 stocks.

SUPER sturdy with a heft of 31 ounces. You’re not going to be humping your AR-10 around much.

Now you’re rewarded with true quality feel and nice adjustments in length-of-pull and cheekweld.  Though the cheekweld isn’t the best out of all the picks.

Rear is bigger to absorb the likely harsher recoil of the AR-10 compared to the AR-15.

Here it is on my 6.5 Creedmoor from PSA (full review).

If you value stability and adjustability…while giving up a little bit in cheekweld and weight. The PRS is for you.

The stock is also an affordable one — coming in under the $70 mark. So, if you need to balance performance with budget, this is the stock for you.

Final Thoughts

There you have it…our top picks for AR-10 stocks. I’m kind of glad there’s not a bazillion stocks out there that fit my bill for the AR-10.

    Your muzzle brakes link at the end is bad. It just links back to this article.

    What the opinion on the Magpul MOE Rifle Stock? I’ve got an Aero build, minus the stock. Glad I stumbled onto this review, as I didn’t know about the Luth AR stock.

    I think you missed the most obvious choice for an AR10, the MFT Battlelink Minimalist stock. AR10s are heavy pigs and need all the weight reduction they can get. With a rifle length gas system they are suprisingly gentle to shoot....at least for a 308.

      I really like the Minimalist for my AR-15 but for me it makes the balance of the heavier AR-10 feel really off.
