    I haven't used a Magpul stock. However, I have a few Bell and Carlson stocks, two M40 stocks (w/full length aluminum bedding blocks) and a Alaskan Sporter stock.

    All made an improvement in accuracy. However, accuracy improved a lot more after I bedded the stocks from the rear tang to 1 1/2 to 2 two inches in front of the recoil lug.

    You can get better accuracy from most any of the factory stocks with bedding of the action and floating of the barrel. Add to that a stock that maybe fits you better and you can also improve accuracy.
