Strengths: Easy installation, foldable, lightweight, makes you look like a sniper, good price
Weaknesses: Nothing major at all...rattles slightly, costs about $50
Review: When I looked for a stock, I started out with the BT Car Stock, but the problem with that is it costs around $70, and can't be folded like the folding stock. A folding stock is almost essential if you have a scope, since you can't get your eye up to it if you have a car stock.

From the start I have been very impressed with the quality of the BT folding stock. It attached easily to my gun, is very sturdy, and the folding system makes it easy to get out of the way when I'm playing speedball. It really does steady your gun, and can be adjusted to different lengths.

And the reason everybody buys stocks...it looks awesome. Not as cool as a car stock, but the price and folding function make it a better buy in my opinion.

There are really no major defects with the stock. It doesn't always lock in completely when unfolded, so it rattles just slightly, and sometimes the screw comes loose, so the length will change. Lastly, depending on your preference, you may want a remote coil to get your air/CO2 tank out of the way. But overall it is a very simple and effective addition to the gun.

Conclusion: If you own a tippmann, buy it. It is very versitile, and does its job. Unlike a lot of 'sniper' products that promise a better game but don't deliver, the folding stock really does work. I've experienced steadier shots, better aiming, and a lot of people want to know where I got it.

I suggest keeping your bottle on your gun if you want to aim down the sights. The bottle placement on a Tippmann;

1) balances out the gun very nicely and

2) lets you keep your head up and gives a plenty clear line of sight down the gun.

Most military style stocks nowadays aren't built for people with masks on. The mask gets in the way of where your head would naturally tilt towards the stock.
