Magpul updates X-22 chassis for breakdown backpacking (VIDEO)

Wyoming-based Magpul just dropped their X-22 Backpacker stock as a functional upgrade that brings onboard ammo storage to anyone rocking a Ruger 10/22 Takedown.

The company introduced their Hunter X-22 line in 2015, which brought general Magpul swag to the standard 10/22. Now they are back with an ergonomic X-22 Backpacker designed to drop in all factory 10/22 Takedown models or those with a Tactical Solutions SBX barrel.

The aftermarket stock includes a MOE SL non-slip pad, a locking assembly to keep the barrel from falling away at awkward times, QD sling mount capability, interchangeable cheek risers and a storage space in the grip.

Speaking of storage:

Color choices include black, OD, FDE, and “Stealth Gray.”
