Leaning towards the Magpul UBR stock and MIAD grip for the lower assembly. Everything I have read says it is a very solid setup. A little heavy but gives a good balance. I don't plan to run around with it anyways.

Good components right there...

I still stand by a SOPMOD stock for a carbine and an A2 stock for a precision AR.  I like the simplicity of them.

The ejector usually has a tang that sticks off the front. I've seen some real short ones but that looks way too short...



Can you take a photo of the ejector area from the top?

I agree.  Nothing wrong with the Magpul pieces though.

I get the feeling that Magpul is the Odyssey of the AR world. Great products, tons of R&D but people still seem to hate on them and call people "fan boys". Is it just me or is that really how it is?

Ehhhh..... kind of. They make some cool shit but they are not usually the first choice for people who actually use their rifles.  They have everybody hanging off their nuts over at ARFcom and guys who play in the 3-gun and "practical" matches use their stuff but that's about it.  Some of their features are kind of gimmicky and unnecessary IMO.  

I'm not sure what bike brand I'd compare them to though.

The thing about Magpul is you see a lot of guys completely decking their rifles with every component available, and then plinking with them in a field.  It's like a kid who buys a complete bike to cruise down the sidewalk, and then proceeds to spend $1k on every Odyssey part available but still just cruises down the sidewalk.

I'd say the Odyssey comparison is a fairly accurate statement.  I've never seen anyone hate on them though, quite the opposite actually.  They tend to be one of the first names thrown out when someone is looking for a new piece of kit for their rifle.  

One of the main reasons I prefer the SOPMOD is because LMT is 5 minutes down the road from me.  Gotta support the local guys when they are doing shit right!

There's a lot of truth in this too.  I can't fault the company for that though since most of the products they do make are legit.
