Experience:

Products Used:
No stocks
Marker Setup: Tippmann 98C, J&J Ceramic, Lapco Bigshot, Tapco T6 stock (can no longer aim til i get sight), 20oz Co2.
Strengths: Very Sturdy, Keeps marker firm
Easy to Change lengths
Durable
Ez installation
Weaknesses: Cannot Aim
Review: I bought this as my 2nd upgrade thinking that it would help steady my aim since I shake alot... childhood thing. Anyways, I got it in the mail, easy installation, tough, looks awesome, easy to change lengths (even one handed), etc.

So i threw it on and did some manuevers with it just to feel how it was... keeps the gun steady and firm against the shoulder and you can eliminate recoil with this baby. Went outside and fired a couple shots, worked great.

Threw my mask on and then I found the weakness. it's too high up, they should have made it in a z shape or something... with a mask on i found NO way to use my stock sights. I tried for a long time... it is impossible with my mask, Extreme Rage 20/20 Echo, to aim with those any more. I took it off yesterday when me and freinds were just shooting around...

I'm gonna get the Lapco offset sight rail and some red dot sight (i didn't see this extra spending coming) and THEN put it back on.


:edit:

Yeah I only used this thing once during actual play and it's ok. I never use it anymore because I just used the co2 as a stock and now my guns shorter due to my drop. It gives it a cool look but it's not really needed for anything in my opinion. If you want your marker to be a little more milsim friendly get it. If you want to just paintball, save $40 and buy an upgrade. Lol, I got these when I had fantasies of how I would own with this, a flatline, and a red dot sight. Wow... lol, was that only 6 months ago??
Conclusion: Is an awesome gun if you don't use the sights on the gun anyways. Durable, keeps aim steady, easy to use, easy to install. great product with only that one flaw... give it a 7.

If you're stupid enough to think that any stock out there besides the SpecOps dogleg stock is going to allow you to use the stock sights on a 98 Custom then you're just a disgrace to paintballers everywhere. When you use a stock on a paintball gun, as long as you keep your mask as tight to the stock as you comfortably can, the guns going to point just about dead on. If you just can't play without your precious sights, then get an offset dovetail mount an post a red dot on that. In the long run, you're going notice that your snapshots are a lot more accurate when you're using a stock. Now stop being such a complaining noob!!!

Jesus, Sniper. Don't rag on the guy like that. I have the stock too, and I have the same problem. Do you work for SpecOps or something? That's not the only stock it works for, not even close. If you're stupid enough to think that only the dogleg works, then you're just a disgrace to paintballers everywhere. Get a life.

ive used this stock b4 in a game (my firneds) and i read your review... i saw this part :

"I never use it anymore because I just used the co2 as a stock "
did you use the stock WITH the co2 on the gun? if thats the case then you should buy a remote line. that way u depend on the stock more... and your should definetly go for the offset rails... theyre more logical becuase... they are... :)
