My phone wont let me PM attachments, but i will use it how i have it set up now. One of the segments of live fire will be iron sights only, so the Eotech will have to come off for it. Other than that,just how she sits

A more likely use test would have been what happens to the stock when its used as a club to buttstroke someone. Get a dummy dressed up and start wacking him.

Thats always been a weak point of the ar15 design. They dont hold up well as a club when the bullets run out.

Its not a terribly valid set of tests since there was no firing the rifle after stock failure. Did the stock failure allow the buffer tube to distort?? even if a stock breaks and collapses the more important issue is does the buffer tube still work??

Those tests are interesting but not relevent since there was subsequent test fire.

I wouldn't put a UBR on it. Maybe wait for the FDE STR to be released.

I took the test as a test of the stock only and not so much as a test of how the weapon performed after having the stock thrashed on. I would be interested in a test of the later.
