    I meant the UBR because I thought it attached like an A2 stock and the adjustment is made on the stock not by sliding on the buffer tube. However I am not familiar with the UBR I have never seen one in person but the PRS probably would be better.

    Tirod, just a moment:
    Well, if that's the case (and I'm not convinced that it is), you've precluded the statements in the rest of that post.

    "There are no data" is an a priori disproof of the assertion that "it makes no difference." Not having any data means, quite specifically, that we do not know whether there is a difference or not.

    How 'bout we let people get the best fit they can, since the rifle's made to be tweakable? It's a LEGO set; use that characteristic in your favor. Then, of course, go out and practice a lot. Get instruction and so forth. We can't buy skill by adding gadgets to rifles, but that's a separate issue.

    The OP asked, "which did you like better for the weight difference and the feel?" My answer: gun fit matters, it's easy to set up an AR to suit your preferences, and my own preferences are as I've stated above.

    If you want a stock for a ar, it is usless to get a fixed collapsable stock, they are uncomfortable and useless, the purpose of one is to be able to collapse it, get a MagPul PRS stock, they are sweet and very functional. not to mention its a lot more comfortable and better looking than a postban M4 stock. I also have a M93B stock and handled the UBR stock, The UBR is the best you can get IMHO but they are in excess of $300.00 then again a PRS is not that far behind and the UBR is a collapseble anyways so it puts you back to square one.

    digital, welcome to THR, but your info is a bit off

    PRS is not collapsible
    UBR can be had for $250 just about anywhere
    PRS can be had for $207

    but mostly, i think the point wasn't that we wanted a pinned collapsible stock like the sort used in ban states where they want the look of the m4 but aren't allowed to have a collapsible stock so they pin it to the fully extended position.

    the point was that many of us put our collapsible stocks in a position we like and leave them there because we don't have any reason to further collapse or extend them.

    The best reasons to have an adjustable stock is for sharing the rifle with people of various statures, as well as using body armor. Also, if you like the stock being shorter than the A1/A2 type stocks, they are good because it is hard to find the right length in a fixed position.

    Downside is they may be less durable... but flexibility is a pretty big upside IMO.
