The rifle functioned with no issue while firing pmc(i think) or federal .223 which was nice. Seems like a great stock for someone running a carbine with a standard buffer. Provides an actual cheek weld for making the collapsed length almost 2" shorter.
However when I put my Gemtech G-5 on it, things went down hill quick, the rifle would not cycle properly.
First round fired and the second round cycled in properly, upon firing the second round there was a failure to properly eject the second round and a failure to feed of the third round. The second round basically stove piped and the third round chambered like half way. Upon clearing the rifle the unchambered third round had been dented half way down it's shell casing and it my opinion rendered unsafe to fire.
I went into the range day a bit skeptical but my friend suggested I clear the rifle and give it a second chance. I did however the exact same series of events happened so off the stock goes and back to my magpul UBR.
Meh. How you gonna knock somebody's teeth out with that thing anyway? UBR is studly.

Adding a suppressor will also add additional weight to the front so the rifle's weight will all be concentrated toward the front . They most definitely make things as compact as possible though.

Let's answer that. The CTR is on my SAGE M1A stock that I haven't been building for like 4 years...
My LWRCI weighs in at 7lb12oz on my postal scale in it's current configuration with the UBR.
Sorry the photo wasn't taken sideways, my cpu likes to flip things if I take pics with my Iphone straight up.
