Same adjust-ability from what I can see. Luth-AR, the only thing I have about it (not sure if it's the same for PRS) but the cheek riser can flex a decent bit (worse the taller it is).

PRS all day as well here. It's solid, easily adjustable and it balances out a long heavy barrel very well. I screwed up a batch of reloads and had to mortar a rifle quite a bit at a match. I'm now a firm believer in the PRS stock :LOL:

PRS is much heavier and more solid. Luth AR is lighter and has more adjustability. I have the Luth AR on my 308 AR and like the way it sets up.

Seems like the Luth-ar only has two settings for cheek weld. Normal placement and high. This could very well be me not knowing how to adjust it. Mostly likely the case.

The LuthAR is very bouncy to me

The Magpul has much better feel to it and balances out our heavier, longer barreled rifles better

The only issue is the Gen 3 has a much longer LOP so it's a touch too long for some folks.

To me, the LuthAR is an entry-level, factory stock and not an upgrade option.

I don't have any direct experience with the PRS other than handling one (not shooting) but I used a Luth-AR MBA-3 carbine stock for a bit and didn't much care for it all that much. The adjustments felt a little clunky to me and I just didn't ever get to where it felt really good.

My rifle needs a longer drag bag now, I’m 6’ so its a perfect fit for me. Only have the length extended about 1/2” and the comb up about 3/8” but it made a huge difference over the carbine type stock that was on it before.

Own and have used both,

The PRS to me is a much better option.

I have a Luth AR MBA 1 on my AR10 (the fixed stock version) and it’s decent. I have the MBA 3 on my 260 bolt gun (Ashbury chassis) and don’t care for it at all.

Magpul PRS all the way for a Precision rifle especially where weight etc isn’t an issue. I like my fixed MBA1 but will most likely part with the adjustable carbine model MBA 3 in the future

I think lowlight said it best above. My 260 also has a folding adapter so I have no use for the LOP adjustable mba3 as the length is already long enough

The LMT DMR stock puts them both to shame. Even more comfy/solid than the PRS and it also rides on a 6 position buffer tube so you can go shorter with the LOP unlike the PRS.

The LUTH-AR is a cheap POS. They may work fine for the occasional range blaster but put some rounds through a rifle with one and you’ll be tightening it up all the time.

I have the magpul gen 3 on a 5.56 precision AR I love it. Rock solid plus balances the rifle out well. Great shooting off bags also
