Description

The Magpul UBR (Utility / Battle Rifle), U.S. Patent 6651371, is a fully-featured, adjustable butt stock for the AR15/M16. Unlike typical collapsing stocks, this modular design offers the stability of a fixed stock with consistent cheek weld in any position. Seven-position length-of-pull (LOP) adjustment is quickly executed with gross motor movement while the integral preset system allows direct access to a preferred position. A robust lock mechanism and multi-shell construction increase durability under severe impact conditions experienced during malfunction clearing and accommodates large-bore AR calibers with ease. The UBR also provides extra counterbalance weight to improve handling on full-length rifles and weapons with muzzle-heavy accessories or bull-barrels. Optional components such as dual-side sling mounts and metal strike plate allow the UBR to adapt to the mission at hand.

I chose the Magpul UBR for my latest AR build. I wanted something a bit more stable than a traditional collapsible stock, but with the option of length of pull adjustments. The UBR fit the bill perfectly. Its design offers a fixed cheek weld while still allowing for seven positions of LOP adjustment. The UBR also offers the option of a preset LOP position so when extended, the stock reaches the perfect length every time.

Picked mine up at JoeBob Outfitters for $254.95, http://www.joeboboutfitters.com/MAGPUL_ ... ag-330.htm.

I ran a 10" quad-rail on this midlength build which added a bit more weight to the front of the rifle. The UBR is more robust than other collapsible stocks and the extra bit of weight was perfect to counter balance the added weight of the quad-rail. There is an optional trap-door storage compartment in the stock that can be reversed to open from either side or can be removed completely.

Image

One of my favorite features of the UBR is that it comes with its own integrated buffer tube assembly. This eliminates the need for a separate buffer tube, latch plate, or castle nut.

Image

Installation is as simple as turning a screwdriver and the end result is one highly adjustable, well balanced AR...

I couldn't be happier with the quality and performance of this stock. I highly recommend the Magpul UBR to anyone looking for a quality upgrade to a standard collapsible stock.
