I like the Magpul CTR and the Vltor E-mod for collapsible stocks. The firm lock up of the CTR combined with it's light weight is nice. The E-mod on a heavier biuild is nice and the cheekweld is good.

For fixed stocks I still haven't found one much better than the standard government ones. I personally like the A1 because it is slightly shorter and seems to fit me better for how I like to shoot.

Another vote for the Magpul CTR, light and fits tight. I have three.

I'll have to check out the Brazilians though! Sounds like something I could use!

Quentin. you might check with your local Secret Service office. They are experts in the subject of South American buttstocks.

For the ultimate in lightweight, I'm with Q, CTR rules the nest.

For a better checkweld I'm liking the STR. Is a few oz more, but if can help balance a 16" barrel. The last 3 builds I've used them and I'm really liking them.

I had a Vltor Imod and it was good, but the STR doesn't pull my whiskers out if I forget to shave in the mornings (like I do 90% of the time)

I really like the UBR but its really really heavy, so I don't think I'll be using one anytime soon. Course if I have a 12.5 sbr with a nice can on it, a UBR might be the ticket.

Sopmods are great but I can't justify the expensive when there are soo many other comparable less and less expensive options out there.

This right here is good to know. I have an I mod that I just picked up. I have facial hair and really don't want that same issue you spoke of.
