The UBR GEN2 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 GEN2 features a fixed cheek piece to provide a consistent cheek weld in any of its eight 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 GEN2 is nearly five ounces lighter while retaining all the durability its predecessor was legendary for.

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.

    This stock has always intrigued me, but I’d like to hear from people who have real-world experience with it.

    Thoughts?

    My three or four AR-malite lowers all sport the MAGPUL UBR Gen1. Just last week I installed a Gen1 on my Arsenal SLR-104 (AKM-74). Needless to say I appreciate this MAGPUL stock. The best thing about it is the cheekrest that does not move. The stock adjusts on a proprietary buffer tube that sits under the cheekrest.

    MAGPUL advertises a lower MSRP and lower weight in their Gen2 vs Gen1. Product improvements do not always mean “improvement” for the consumer. MAGPUL has eliminated on the Gen2, the pushbutton sling swivel points originally found on the Gen1, located at the muzzle end of the stock. These sling swivel points were located just aft of the pistol grip. A sling location many shooters p

      There is a QD swivel on the rear takedown spring retaining plate, very similar to the ASAP QD plate.

        Jon,

        I can only go by the pictures available. From what I can tell the QD swivel you reference cannot be used with the stock in the closed position. The moving, lower portion of the stock butts right up against the ambi QD swivel mount. At least that is how it appears to me. If so, that is the dumbest design feature ever devised. Hope I’m wrong.

        Thoughts ?

        PS: As of 0900 today the UBR Gen2 was only shown at MAGPUL’s webbsite as available in black only. Now at 1400 they show UBR Gen2 available in four colors !

        • DAN III says:

          PSS: The four colors are black, OD, FDE and Grey. Only the black is in stock.

    A sling location many shooters prefer. However, the sling mount points at the rear of the buttstock are retained on the Gen2 as they are on the Gen1 UBR. My annoyance with the buttstock location is the sling moving fore and aft as one adjusts their buttstock.

    Another change on the Gen2 UBR is the absence of button head screws holding the cheekrest in place. The original four screws were not much longer than 1/16″ in length. If one did not blue loktite them in place you stood a good chance of losing them from resultant recoil. Without physically seeing a Gen2 UBR it remains to be seen how secure the cheekrest will fasten to the stock. So, this button head screw elimination may be a good thing.

    Folks tend to criticize the UBR Gen1’s 25oz weight. I’ve never found it a problem. The heavier weight of the UBR helps to balance the frontal weight of many carbines/rifles. Also helps absorb recoil. Anyhow, I understand UBR 2 was put on a diet. That should please many Gen2 buyers.

    For now the MAGPUL website shows the UBR Gen2 available only in black. Most likely other colors will follow. Hell, they HAD to get this thing out to the public. The other colors will likely follow soon.

    While I value my UBR Gen1 stocks I can’t eval the Gen2. Hopefully, the “improvements” help the consumer. Not just the manufacturing process and the manufacturer.

    FWIW.

    Would love to drop some weight on the SPR, but no MP Foilage green offering.
