Default AR stock

I'm going to put in a order for a PSA mid legth rifle kit, I can get it with the PSA stock or for 40 more dollars I can get the MOE stock, when I click on it the MOE is automatically selected and raises the price of the gun 40 bucks, is there any reason to get the MOE over the cheaper PSA stock? I'd just as soon save the 40 bucks if I can.

I think the MOE Hand guards are definitely a big improvement over the standard ovals.
I also think the MOE butt stock looks nicer than the standard M4 style, but its a personal preference thing honestly.

Definitely agree with this.

The MOE stock is worth more than a good quality M4 stock but probably not $40 more.

The rail sections are easy to take on and off and nice to not have in the way of my hand

I like the MOE handguards but prefer the factory stock a little better however I do own both , it slides easier and is easier to make a quick adjustment . Really its all personal preference but there will be a huge difference in the feel of the hand guards over the factory ones . The MOE stock does look better but as far as function not much difference

I wondered about the magpul ones. Have they held up okay after putting attachments on and off.
