Hello GT, I have been considering an upgrade from my A2 Stock to either a Magpul CTR stock, or a Magpul UBR stock. Both stocks are solid, quality stocks but I just cant decide which one I would like to purchase. There are a couple of variables that are impeding my ability to make a firm decision. One of them is that I run a 3-point sling; after trying a number of different slings, i.e.1-point, 2-point, etc., I have decided the 3 point sling is best for me. It serves as a viable combat sling and also serves as a utility sling when needed, as well as providing great weapon retention. The 1-point slings I have tried out just swing around too much; when you bend over the rifle hits the ground and has hit me in the groin a few times. That said, both the UBR and CTR having a QD sling swivel attachment at the rear of the stock will provide the means to use a 3-point, but which stock will work best with the 3-point? Another issue I am having is that I do not like the fact that the UBR weighs as much as it does. I feel I do not want to add more weight to my rifle and was not intending to do so as I have already attached the attachments I need, i.e. light, optics, etc. On the other hand, my rifle is a bit front heavy, as many other ARs out there, so in hindsight, this UBR stock might actually be beneficial to me, for it will balance out the rifle (or so ive heard). My worry is that the rifle will be WAY heavier when slung across my chest; When you have a full load out, i.e. OTV with 6 30 round magazines and a rifle slung on you as well, it can get a little heavy. The CTR IMO is just a great stock with no BS attached. It locks up solid, fills the need for a 3 point sling , and it is LIGHT. This is what has me stuck, go heavy with the UBR, or go light with the CTR while also trying to discern which will work better with my 3-point sling. Any help? Thanks.
