Magpul UBR Stock Review
It is often the case that we change our weapon’s original stocks with a model that is totally inappropriate and often of low quality, just to have that feeling of creating a more adjustable weapon. It is true that for people of small or very large stature a collapsible buttstock is certainly the way to go, but this change often comes at a great cost. It can become extremely uncomfortable to achieve a good cheek weld with an adjustable stock.
There is one high quality adjustable buttstock that still offers you that solid cheek weld you want. This stock is the Magpul UBR. We know that Magpul always creates stocks and accessories of extremely high quality and the UBR isn’t any different. As mentioned already what makes this stock so great, aside from having a truly sleek design, is that it has a great fixed cheekpiece. Whatever your adjustment is you will have that perfect, comfortable cheek weld.
Here are some of the things that make the Magpul UBR stock so amazing:
The Magpul UBR does have its great flaw though. It is, sadly enough, very heavy and can ruin your weapon’s balance. Magpul will most probably create a lighter version soon enough, because this design is just too good to be true. The stock alone weighs 1.46lbs and 1.63 lbs if you include the entry receiver extension. It is 8 to 11.36 inches long, depending on how long you want it to be.
All in all the Magpul UBR is a godsend stock for all those people out there who don’t mind a heavy stock that offers adjustability and cheekweld comfort. If you have a weapon that is already heavy on the front with lots of accessories, the weight of the UBR might be a bonus to balance your weapon out. This Magpul stock is certainly worth looking into if you use your weapon mainly for stationary shooting, where the weight won’t bother you.
Like all Magpul products, the UBR is made to last for life and it will serve you faithfully for many years to come. It is extremely hard to break and it never malfunctions. This might become your next favorite stock out there if you give it a try!
