The venerable Magpul UBR is a staple of the modern battle rifle build. Featuring solid construction and a tough-as-nails mechanism, the stock is a great option for those with a firearm they intend to beat to death. I put one of these on my original competition rifle build and absolutely loved it. But that didn’t mean there weren’t ways it could have been improved. Apparently Magpul felt the same way, and for SHOT Show they’re releasing their brand new UBR 2.0 . . .
From their email blast:
The UBR 2.0 is an adjustable stock for the AR15/M4, designed to offer the same strength and stability as a fixed stock with a consistent and comfortable cheek weld in any position.
An update of the revolutionary Utility/Battle Rifle (UBR) stock, the UBR 2.0 features a fixed cheek piece to provide a consistent cheek weld in any of its 8 positions, and is compatible with Carbine as well as A5-length buffer systems. Designed to accommodate large bore AR calibers and withstand severe impacts, the UBR 2.0 comes standard with front and rear QD sling attachment points, two footman’s loops, the ergonomic MOE SL™ angled-toe rubber butt-pad, and customizable storage compartment.
Made in U.S.A.
Looks good, and at $199 it’s slightly cheaper ($30 less MSRP) than the previous version.
