The button is slightly hard to find with your thumb when the stock is closed.
Simplicity: I liked this stock as soon as I heard about it, mainly for this reason: It's simple. It's either open or it's closed. One of the things I hated about the old CAR stocks (especially the 6-position models) was that you had to find your favorite length every time you "collapsed" it - an annoying design flaw in my humble opinion.
Strength: For those die-hard plastic fans out there - this is going to be a real disappointment. This is no chew toy - solid construction using only high strength aluminum, brass, and stainless steel. I could seriously beat someone to death with this thing (if I was so compelled) without leaving a scratch on it. I use only the toughest materials on my marker - not a piece of plastic on it (unless you count the hopper) because frankly - I like to be able to abuse my gun without worrying about something breaking.
Versatility: When I bought the stock, it came with a drop saddle already installed (drops the stock about an inch lower than the origional, comes standard on all newer versions ot this stock), and also bought a grip mount for a measly $7.01. What this means is that I can now adjust the height, length, and mounting point of this stock to my hearts content. I can also mount it on a spyder or any other marker with a standard bottom line (Two linear holes or two offset holes on the bottom of the grip frame).
Style: I have to admit, when I first heard about this stock, I was skeptical. Nothing this versital could possibly look good. Well I got news for you: It's not only good, it is without question, the meanest looking stock I have ever seen. The look in your enemy's eyes is priceless when you click this thing into place and take aim.
A must-have for anyone considering a stock - forget the CAR stock, forget the fixed stock.
Bottom line: THIS THING OWNS - if you're getting a stock, get a JCS.
