on smaller guns like MP9 or BT USW, what's the approximate weight of the stock?  is it as light as 100 grams or heavier?

also, i recall reading that steyr avoided a stock on the TMP because they thought a simple foregrip would be just as effective, in terms of unskilled users. any thoughts on this?

I have fired a TMP and recall that I found the fore-grip added little to holding stability. However at the time I could only fire semi-auto. I concluded that a fore-grip might add more value in full auto, but in any circumstances a decent stock would be much more effective.
