I had a UBR bought, but the seller is getting squirrelly.

My question is which stock is best for my application.

20" LaRue Stealth Sniper System.

It is for 100-600 yard target shooting. I have had a UBR and really liked it. I have also had a PRS, but only briefly. I didnt use it enough to make a decision.

Should I go with the PRS for its adjustability?

PRS...the adjustability is great for a target/tactical use

The UBR is nice, but not nice enough for to switch from my MOE(I like light and simple) considering the price.

Though I have no experience with a PRS, I would imagine it'd make a 20" balance a bit nicer.

I like the PRS however, the UBR intrigues me, I would really like to get my hands on one when things calm down a bit.

I'd say PRS if you want to do 200-600 yard work. No doubt.

The UBR I had was a great stock. Really liked the solid feel. That said, I have about decided to go with a PRS.

Just starting to look at them seriously. What is the difference in the genII?

I see a "package" of a genII PRS with a monopod built in. That could be a nice setup, but almost $400. Anybody using one of these?

What's wrong with a standard A2 stock?  I have one on my varmint rig....figured it was cheaper than the PRS and I could always just slide a PRS on it if the cheek weld wasn't right when I put a scope on it.  I put a scope on it and the cheek weld and eye relief is perfect....and it weighs a heck of a lot less (both in pounds and on the pocket book) than the PRS.

Not worried about weight.

Nothing wrong with an A2 stock if you like them. The PRS and UBR are both considered upgrades, though.

I am leaning toward the PRS because this is my first precision AR and I want the adjustabilty.

I just put this lower together today for my MK12 Mod0 build it seems like a solid stock.

G-30, is that gen1 or 2? Still trying to determine if there is much difference.

PRS, if your out on a canoe and loose an oar, you can use that ugly stock.

If I build a rifle in which form is more important then function, I will note this.

You kidding me?! What's more functional than a dual purpose rifle stock? J/K  

All kidding aside, You have a UBR, you said weight isn't an issue so go PRS. Sounds like thats what you really want to do.

I don't have a UBR (yet) but I do have a PRS.  

The idea of the PRS is nice but to allow room for the charging handle to be operated, the adjustable cheek piece is too far back for decent eye relief.  If you use the PRS with the cheek piece all the way down, you still have the adjustable length of pull but that is all.  

I prefer the A2 over the PRS simple because of the band for the buck factor.  With that said, the PRS is a very quality constructed stock.  I do enjoy the weight of the PRS (heavy as hell) to balance out a 20" HBAR or varmint barrel.

To tell you the truth I am not sure, I got it from LaRue in March but the invoice does not say.

Link Posted: 4/25/2009 9:30:20 AM EDT
If what your doing is precision or sniper shooting then Thats what the PRS was made for.  The UBR is a heavier more robust version of the tactical adjustable stock.  If you are using a longer tactical rifle or if you have a M4 but like the toys and accesories like the lights, heavy opticsand lasers then the UBR does an excellent job of balancing the weapon.  It is a heavy stock but I love mine.  Should you ever have to butt stroke someone it would cause a tremendous amount of damage too.  Its that sturdy.  It all boils down to your preference and use.

Well the rifle is definitely going to be used for LR precision shooting. PRS it is.
Link Posted: 4/25/2009 10:26:46 AM EDT
Has anybody bought one of the gen2 PRS packages with the accu shot monopod? would be nice to not have to have a rear bag. I have never used a monopod, but if they are easy to get adjusted just right, they may be very effective.

Look here: Magpul PRS

I will check out the link, but it seems that there is in fact a gen 2. I am seeing them advertised in a lot of places. The gen 2 doesnt have anything to do with the pod. This stock was just a gen 2 and was packaged with the pod.

There is no Gen 2. Someone might be selling it as a package deal or something but the PRS has a rail on the bottom that you can attach a monopod to. All you have to do is slide the piece off on the bottom of the stock and it has a rail built into it.

Scroll down to the bottom of the page at the description and the pics and you'll see.

Look here: Magpul PRS



Wrong juicehead.  There is a Gen 1 and Gen 2 PRS.

What are the differences between Gen 1 and Gen 2?

It isn't listed on the Magpul website that i could find. I found  a bunch of sites that are advertising the PRS Gen 2 but none have a description as to the difference from the Gen 1. I am very intrested as i am looking to buy one of these in the next month.
Link Posted: 4/26/2009 3:43:37 PM EDT
Gen 1- has a metal buttplate

Gen 2- has a rubber pad on the buttplate

direct from Magpul!
Link Posted: 4/26/2009 6:27:34 PM EDT
I found a new gen 2 PRS in black. Think I am going to order that and be done with it.
Link Posted: 4/26/2009 6:27:44 PM EDT
That's the only difference !!

Thanks for the info.

Due to in stock issues, I had to get the PRS in FDE. To LaRues credit, they expedited the shippping so I could get it Friday. If my MKIV shows tomorrow, I will be shooting by the weekend
Link Posted: 4/30/2009 6:32:02 PM EDT
Now I need a FDE MIAD, and FDE rail covers. I have a brand new black MIAD and new in package black magpul rail covers to trade.

Well, I am a newbie when it comes to stocks. I didnt realize that my PRS would not come with a rifle buffer tube and spring. Is this typical? Now I have to find a buffer tube. Will the tube from a carbine work with my 20" LaRue?

nope

Think I have everything on the way to get this together. All the following stuff should be here this week: Rifle buffer tube. FDE MIAD, FDE XTM rail covers.

Here is a pic of the PRS mocked up and what it will look like, also need to trade a couple black 30 rd Pmags for a couple FDE 20 rounders.
