Default Magpul CTR stock

I have a Magpul MOE stock on my MP15 by S&W. I was wondering if there was anyone out there who has tested and confirmed any notable difference in overall performance as far as accuracy and controllability goes between the MOE and the CTR stock. The hype on the CTR is that because it locks down on the buffer tube it has a slight increase in accuracy. Is this true or should I just stick with my MOE? Thanks for any input.

I used to own a OD green moe stock... The moe is a bargain for the price there are not many stock out there that come close in quality for the price. I replaced my moe with a CTR about 2 years or so ago the craftsmanship is obviously the same high quality you expect from magpul.. I will say that any wable is completely gone now by enforcing the lock button another thing a really like is the QD mount.. But does in increase accuracy ???? Maybe "technically yes" will you notice it? Probably not i run my " magpul style" or aisossalies triangle style

Forcing the rifle into my shoulder which I believe puts enough pressure to stop most wable
So I haven't noticed a difference
Maybe bench shooting or prone might give you minor accuracy increase

Have you looked at any other offerings ? Jw

I love my LMT sopmod I would say no play what so ever awsome cheek weld and battery storage compartment this is my fav stock

Also like my Troy battle axe it is a shorter stock more cqb style it does have slight wable large storage compartment decent cheek weld

I can tell you that without engaging the lock on my CTR, I get quite a bit of wobble, but when I lock it down it's as solid as a rock. No movement at all.

I also use the QD.

All lower end stocks are the same if your trying to assess accuracy. The MOE might be slightly lighter and just as good as the CTR, I you like the lock,and the Q/D mount go for it. I think stocks are personal preference and what ever suits you is best. The only difference to me is weight and ergonomics. I don't get caught up in brand or price. If it $300 and I like it and feels good or if its $50 and feels good ill get it. As long as they are built well and will live up to its intended duty or use, than its all good.

Yeah, but that PRS is really heavy.

Like others have said, I prefer (and buy) the CTR over the MOE for the extra friction lock and the QD mount. But the extra wobble of the MOE won't affect accuracy a bit.
