So as the title implies, I'm building a new SBR. This will probably the only one I build in 2016, and I'm purposing it as an SD/HD rifle. It will be chambered in 300blk and I already have the suppressor on order. The build is a 10" barrel and the suppressor going on it will be 7" (about 5.75 added length I believe).

I wanted to throw one of those PDW style stocks on it and was curious how those of you who have/have had them like them. Are they worth the $$? Better options out there?

I have the troy pdw on my 7.5 inch 300blk. It works great. But I dont like having to use the troy bcg. And you cant take the upper off the lower so quickly. Id say def not worth 450$. Stock with a magpul. Or wait for the new troy stock that allows a standard bcg.

Thanks! Anyone else?

I'm trying to do the same thing as you OP. I want a 8.5" .300 with a PDW type stock and maybe a 3x ACOG. I just filed for my SiCo Hybrid the other day specifically for this rifle.

Soooooo.... Tagged for answers/information.

I have a LWRC pdw stock and buffer tube. I like it a lot, has good cheek weld.

mvb is longer. Stick with the troy if you're going for the shortest setup.

I have the troy setup on an 8.5" noveske navy. Works well even suppressed... However, I would feel more comfortable with a normal bcg and buffer. Its my wife's rifle and I am trying to get her to switch to the battle arms Dev. Vert pdw stock setup.

This, and it has the same length collapsed or extended.

I have the Troy PDW stock and a LWRC UCIW.

If having the shortest possible rifle matters, then go with the PDW stock.

The UCIW offers better cheek weld, a more comfortable stock, is lighter and is several hundred $ less.

Over/under the FDE rifle has a slightly shorter barrel.

Thanks, that puts a better perspective on it

ETA: more worried about better balance than weight in general. I'm worried that with the can on the front, too little stock weight will make it front heavy

How do you like the RMR setup on a SBR?

I like it, and I like the triangle. Two things came up - 1 is that I don't like the Amber as much as green. Also the DI sights will wash out from dark to light, which makes buIs a must. Good news is that shooting from dark to light where the RMR washes out, the sights are easy to pickup.

On a PDW you really need some parallax free dot as cheek weld isn't so hot.
