First Look: Magpul PC Backpacker Stock for Ruger PC Carbine

posted on January 17, 2020

Magpul has released the PC Backpacker Stock, designed specifically for, and drop in compatible with, 9 mm Luger and .40 S&W models of the Ruger PC Carbine. With a similar look and function to the X-22 Backpacker stock, the PC Backpacker Stock offers a minimalist solution for the hunter who wants to transport their carbine in an efficient, convenient package.


Constructed of Magpul's advanced polymer, the PC Backpacker Stock features M-Lok slots at the three and nine o'clock positions, with interchangeable cheek risers to accommodate for various sighting options. To absorb recoil, the PC Backpacker boasts an MOE SL rubber buttpad, and is further compatible with the MOE SL Enhanced Rubber Buttpad for an additional 3/8" length of pull. The inclusion of multiple QD-cup mounting locations means the Ruger PC Carbine can be carried easily—either broken-down or assembled—with either the Type 1 or 2 Magpul Sling Mount Kit. Finally, as all good survivalist tools should, the stock has two integrated storage locations: a water-resistant grip storage compartment, and a compartment in the riser section, ideal for a single-pistol magazine (up to a PMAG 21 GL9).


Technical Specifications:
• Length of Pull: 13.75ʺ
• Weight: 21 oz.
• Width of Butt (max): 1.5ʺ
• Width of Stock (max): 1.788ʺ

The new PC Backpacker Stock is available in Black, Flat Dark Earth, Grey and OD Green, and has an MSRP of $149.95. For more information, visit
