I've been wanting a UBR stock for over a year now but it has been out of production for quite a while, despite being a seemingly awesome stock. I don't get why Magpul stopped making them in the first place since they're such a hot seller. :confused:

Last week I was looking at Midway's site and it appeared that the UBR was in stock!! Then this week, it's backordered. Does anybody know if the UBR is actually back in production?

They are in production, but also in very high demand. Also, Magpul is a fairly small company and can only do limited runs of production at a time. Because of this they go in cycles to kick out their products, which is why you will see "in stock" everywhere for about a week, then everyone will buy them and you have to wait until the next production cycle for the new batch...

They are slowly getting caught up to the current demand, so just keep your eyes open and keeping checking the "for sale" section on Calguns as well - they come up for sale fairly often...

I have a UBR on one of my rifles and love it - they are worth the wait!

Other than they're heavy as all get out, what is the draw to them over others out of curiosity. After playing with one a bit, I don't see the draw except to use it as a club if you run out of ammo.

it's a great stock if you're looking for something solid and heavy. it's good for balancing out rifles that are heavier on the front end.

When I ran a Larue 12" upper, the UBR was required to balance that thing out. When I decided to go with a carbine upper I replaced the UBR as the gun was rear heavy an unbalanced.

Comfort is more about the balance than the weight imo. My front hand gets too tired if the gun is front heavy. Because of such I will sacrifice weight to make it well balanced. That said Id only use it on a heavy barrelled 16" with bipod or 18"+. If lighter Id go ACS or CTR if sticking with Magpul.

Its also dang sturdy!

I think the UBR offers the convenience of an adjustable, but is nearly as solid as a fixed. Balancing is nice when needed too as previously mentioned.

Irvington Arms got 10 of them in about 3 weeks ago.

I can now keep black, FDE and OD in stock for more than a day!

It's a great stock to balance a front-heavy build and like it's already been mentioned, very rigid/sturdy.

The perfect SPR stock..... as sturdy as a fixed stock, yet still retractable... solid cheek weld....
