It was a really simple assembly. I ordered a Model 1 Sales 20" A2 Gov't profile complete upper and A2 buttstock. I built the lower receiver using an Essential Arms stripped lower and LPK. Everything fit together beautifully. Functionally, it performed very well. The whole package cost me about $700.

I've been running UBR's on different guns for over a year and a half. Awesome stock if it's on the right gun.

The UBR is one that I've wanted to try for a while, but haven't had the chance too. I get the impression that it would be best on maybe a 16"? Looks a bit heavy for a light 14.5" or shorter build.

Repost of info I had written on another thread:



What stock you use on what gun really comes down to personal preference and personal preference differs from person to person and is not something that can be easliy explained or decided over the internet.


**********************************************************************

Something I have learned about AR's over the years is, it's a game of matching the right part with the right gun. You may try a stock on a 10.5" SBR and hate it, and then try the same stock on a 16" mid-length carbine and think it's the best stock on the market.

Here is something I wrote in another thread in reference to my personal preferences on different stocks:


**********************************************************************


There are some accessories that I like across the board on all AR's, there are other accessories that I may like on a 11.5" SBR but not like on a 16" Mid-Length or a 20" rifle.

Stocks can

1) help balance out a rifle

2) or if the stock too big or heavy can dominate the gun

3) and if it's too small or too light can make the gun feel muzzle heavy


After trying several different configurations over the year, at the current time I have found that I like Magpul CTR's on SBR's and some 14.5" M4's but I don't like Mapgul CTR's on 16" barreled mid-lengths or 14.5" guns with longer rail systems (9.0 - 13.2). The Magpul CTR is a light weight stock and doesn't balance out a front heavy carbine well.

SOPMODs (for me) balance perfectly on a 14.5" M4 with a 7.0 rail, but can also balance most SBR's and mid-lengths out fairly well. I'm running a SOPMOD on a LaRue Stealth 12" with 10.0 rail and for me it's a perfect balance.

Vltor EMods and Magpul UBRs balance out 16" Mid-Lenghts and most 18" gun with rifle length gas tubes quite well.


As a general rule I run:

-Magpul CTR's on SBR's (short barreled rifle) and some 14.5" M4's (with carbine length rail system)

-SOPMODs on 14.5" M4's and some SBR's with longer rails

-Vltor EMods and Magpul UBR's only on 16" mid-lengths. The EMod also balances well on 14.5" with longer rails (10.0 - 12.0)

-Magpul UBR's on 14.5" - 16" barrels with longer rail systems (10.0 - 13.2) (example shown below of a UBR on a Noveske with a 14.5" barrel and a 11.0 rail system)

I also recently had the chance to try a Magpul UBR on a 20" rifle and the UBR balanced out the rifle extreemly well.

Magpul CTR on 16" Mid-Length
Black Rifle Forum



I recently put a Magpul CTR on a BCM 16" Mid-Length w/ LaRue 9.0 rail, Surefire x300, and Aimpoint T1 Micro. The gun balances well for *me*. I had tried a Magpul CTR on this gun in the past and it didn't feel right to me. I don't know what changed but tried it again recently and it feels good. Sometimes our personal preferences change over time.

By changing one item on this gun it can drastically change how the gun feels. Replace the x300 light for a Surefire 961 and the CTR is no longer a good fit for this gun, but a UBR and EMOD will balance the gun out nicely. Change out the T1 for a ACOG TA11 or Leupold MR/T 1.5-5x in LaRue SPR-E, again the CTR is too light on this gun and doesn't feel right, replace the CTR for a UBR and EMOD will balance the gun out nicely.

Many times you can chage out one accessory (light, optic, stock, etc) and it can drastically change how the gun feels. Sometimes better, sometimes worse.

The ultimate goal is to select accessories that complement each other so you end up with a well balanced carbine that doesn't feel like a boat anchor.


Hope this helps

  • Stag Arms M4 Lower/Upper
  • 6 Position Stock with Heavy Buffer
  • Yankee Hill Forearm Rail
  • JP Enterprise Trigger
  • Jerry Miculek Comp
  • Ergo Grip
  • Aimpoint RDS Red Dot Scope
It's on my wishlist for Christmas 2006.....
