The U-15 looks great. My question is this. As it's only held by one screw how susceptible to breakage is it of one picks up or holds the rifle by the rear of the stock? It seems like that could put a lot of stress on the attachment point.

Having handled others and now my own, I don't think you have much breakage worry. The most likely to fail part is the wood of the stock itself - which is exactly how you would want it to fail. And I doubt that that could actually happen unless you have to get medieval in hand to hand 'cause the Zombies ran you out of ammo.

There's a metal shank bolted to the pistol grip attachment point and it extends several inches into the wood stock, where it is held in place ot by its two bolts but by the mechanical shape. The shank-stock bolts will have almost no sideways stress. Once you see how it is done and pick it up and heft it, you realize you don't need to keep a baseball bat around to scare your daughter's dates. It is seriously solid.
