Similar but different are … Read moreOn the Krinkov
I purchased a used Magpul CTR stock with LaRue RISR and POD installed. It was interesting to try out the LaRue Reciprocating Inline Stock Riser (RISR) on an AR15. The RISR is made to give a higher cheekweld on rifles like the LaRue .308 OBR and accommodate the charging handle on the AR series of rifles. … Read moreReview: LaRue RISR on an AR15
