LOL Ahhhh....the ACR. I remember saying "I will have one of those the day they come out."

I put the UBR 1.0 on mine. It is a hefty thing, isn't it? But I like it so far.

some of the high power guys are lamenting the new stocks, since they are supposedly lighter,

as in you want a heavier stock in high power

I'd just like a UBR that doesn't shake itself to pieces. Put one on a .308 I built. After 60 rounds all 4 of the small Allen head screws holding on the fixed cheekpiece to the tube were gone. They striped out the threads inside the tube. Sent it back for repairs. Came back with a new tube and assured me the screws were Loctite'd in. Next shooting session same results. Though after 50 rounds I do still have one of the screws, only because it hit me in the face when it came out, landing in my lap.



Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

Well, perhaps that's one of the fixes that keeps bringing them back to the drawing board. I'll say this- when the thing finally appears, it had better be perfection.

First I've heard of issues with the UBR. I have probably close to 700rnds through a 716 with one and no issues. Along with several on 5.56 guns that have been problem free as well. My concern with the 2.0 is will it be as sturdy.

Thread revival.....
Ordered a 2.0 today from the big Brown gun part supplier in Iowa who claimed they're in stock.
With a $10 off coupon and the discounted from list price it should deliver 7/20 for $164.31

Fyi

Why ... I've had one for at least 2 years, I think they're out of production now but they're still on GunBroker, I believe Remington got the parts when they bought Bushmaster ... I needed a thicker barrel shim (could have sent it in for warranty but didn't) ... someone was making a 300BO barrel for a while but not sure if they still are.

Most SCAR16 owners upgrade their stock to the ACR stock, the ACR will use any AR trigger group but you have to either modify the hammer spring or re-use the old one ...


If you really want something you'll find a way ...
... if you don't you'll find an excuse.

I'm really not a "kid" anymore ... but I haven't grown up yet either Wink

Most SCAR owners? I'd dispute that and ask for factual proof.

Some, yes. But I tried an ACR stock on my 17 and didn't like it, so off it went.

I'm sure your right, most is probably an unintentional exaggeration. When I was on the ACR boards there were always people looking for ACR folding stock and complaining about the stock on the SCAR and often times saying their stocks were flimsy or had broken.

I don't remember people looking to replace the 17 stocks, why were you wanting to replace yours?

They use the same stock (SCARs, 16, 17).

I just wanted to try something different. Not a must have by any stretch - actually more difficult to operate OEM stock.
