Review: This is a truly innovative product from our friends (cough) at proteam.
above all, this stock adds a truly military bad a$$ look to your gun. i haven't met anyone yet that can disagree with that.

this stock will make your marker look and feel more like a riffle of military issue.
**note: if combined with flatline super coolness will be achieved**
it is easy one button operation to adjust (unlike the folding stock), and has three settings:
fully folded: 19 cm long
middle folded: 23 cm long
full length: 27 cm long
this is good news for all sizes of people
the way to check if a gun of any kind fits you is to put the butt of the stock at the base of your bicep and see how short or far away the handle is from your palm. with me (im 6 1") the full setting reaches my palm to a tee. for some one smaller like 5 1" the smallest setting might be appropriate, and for the person in between me and the shorter person the middle length.

this stock is recommended for scenario and woods ball, i do not recommend it for speed ball. someone of my size could merely fold it up and use it in speed ball, but what about the smaller person? folded up is full setting to them. someone in this situation is in luck however, for installation and removal is as simple as field stripping and lifting.

despite what people say sometimes, this does steady your shot, why do you think the military issues virtually the same stocks to their riffles? To add a unique and custom look to their solders? i don't think so.

Now the bad;

the frame made of plastic (high quality) will wobble against the metal bar like piece that holds it in. when you walk it will make noises. this can be fixed with some packing tape or duct tape in strategic positions, im sure there is better solutions out there, but that was just a make-shift solution.
**UPDATE** I have fixed this problem with teflon tape.

The stock itself will rotate out of place when twisted. im still working on a solution for that. i have thought of glue, more tape, and big rubber o rings or elastic bands. i am yet to test one of these ideas out yet though.

like i said earlier a speed ball player would want to rip this thing off, my question is what is a speed ball player doing with a stock still attached to his or her gun? (Many people do this) Removal of this and the flatline barrel and installation of an e-bolt and a boom stick is a breeze! so you could go from scenario to speed ball player in 10 or less minutes. (depending on how well you know your marker)

The stock (like all others) takes away e-bolt compatibility by taking up its slot.
most people would pick the e-bolt over the car stock any day, but if you want the stock for scenario and the e-bolt for speed, it is possible like i said before.
**the stock does not take up Response triggers slot**
the response trigger and the stock are a deadly combo for scenario and indoor. matched with a flat line and electro hopper it is one of the best by far for scenario, woods, and indoor. and im not saying you cant use a stalk for speed ball, by all means go ahead, no ones going to stop you.

If the stock takes a direct, powerful hit (like lead pipe from baseball player hard) at the right angle, it may rip your frame, luckily this is a rare occurrence and a new frame can be purchased. And maybe the next time you will be more responsible with your marker.

Conclusion: This stock is the best on the market in my opinion, though it does have few flaws like everything else (except for dye precision products) it out matches the folding stock in simple none screw loosening and losing (many people with folding stocks lose those infernal vital bolts) and with the better looks and adjustably over the fix stock i will give it a 8 because it is a high quality stock. hadn't it been for the few flaws a 10 would have been in order.
