    I have an extremely limited number of UBRs coming and am considering keeping them for myself as upgrades from the CTR. What do you guys think of the UBR compared to other AR stocks?
     
  2. It's a personal taste thing. It weighs double what the MOE does, and I don't like the way it looks. I don't really see the need to store lots of stuff in my stock (I keep spare light barreries in my grip) so they never appealed to me. There are people that love them though. I say you should see how you like them when you get them, and then decide.

    I like how the cheek weld part stays the same, no matter what length it's set to.
    I don't know if it's worth the price though (for me, anyway).

    This

    I haven't had the opportunity to handle them but personally I think they look kind of ugly.

    I've seen places selling them for $300 a piece. You could probably make a pretty good profit margin on them considering magpul has them listed for $265. :dunno:

    PS Any chance you can get a hold of some MS2 slings :x:

    I heard the UBR is so awesome because the polymer composite is reinforced with Chris Costa's beard trimmings.

    If I sell them, I won't increase my price from $258 as I don't want to be part of the "gougingl" problem.

    I have slings ordered but Magpul is increasing the price on them...I don't know what the new price will be or when they will be available.

    You heard wrong. Its reinforced with his pubes.
     
  7. Have you had a chance to try one? I got one when they came out, and I liked it, but if you're at a class or anything where you have the rifle is slung for a while the soft, thin webbing they used is kind of uncomfortable after a while. I sold it and use a BlueForce UDC sling now. Much more comfortable.

    I haven't found one to try out yet but I figured magpul would do a pretty damn good job with a single point. I'd be using it on my annual pig hunt but beyond that It would just see some light range use.

    Thanks for the tip on the Blueforce. I'm thinking of giving up on the MS2 because I'm so tired of waiting.

    too 'spensive for what it is, IMHO

    but if you want to sell them for $100, then :naughty:

    The MOE works well without the friction lock.
     
  15. :werd: I had a CTR and now I have a MOE. No way I'll pay double for the CTR now that I've used the MOE.

    I personaly think the UBR is the #1 stock for the big bore carbines.
    Very solid,but a bit heavy.

    I want one but don't want to pay that much for it. I think it will balance out one of my rifles that is a little front heavy. :hs:

    Someone once said ordering from botach is like banging hookers...you may not get clap the first time but go back enough times and you certainly will.

    It's a good stock, but not for me. It's heavy (I read 1.5 lbs) and too expensive for what it is.

    I prefer the Vltor stocks. Good cheek-weld and much lighter.

    In the end, it depends on what you will use the rifle for. Bench shooter? The UBR is great. Going to a carbine class? Forget it, use a different stock.
