Products Used:
M4 telescoping stock, SpecOps A2 stock - The M4 just sucks, you can't get behind it.
The A2 is better, but not quite there. The dogleg is the real deal.
Marker Setup: Tippmann A-5 E-grip with air-thru dogleg, J&J 12" ceramic, pure energy exp chamber, remote with in-line Palmer stabilizer.
Strengths: Strong, light, well made. Puts your head where it should be.
Weaknesses: None
Review: This product design is long overdue. Finally a strong, light, well made stock that you can actually get your head and mask/goggles behind. The stock is made from anodized aluminium, fits the A-5 by simply removing the factory push pins and replacing the end plug with the stock. Fit is superb, there is nothing loose about how it fits. The butt plate is real nice thick rubber, the air fittings and macroline are routed and protected with mesh jacketing. If you wanted, you could drill and tap into the gas block and add a mini pressure gauge to look at while you're shooting. The remote line connection is right under your arm and out of the way, just more icing on the cake.

The length is right for most shooters, and is comfortable too. The black anodizing matches the A-5 finish closely. She isn't the prettiest girl at the prom, but hey, she
performs like there's no tomorrow. This is a well-thought out, sturdy addition to your A-5 that will give you the stability you're looking for, and you won't have to be laying out more cash for that offset sight rail and reflex sight. It's well worth the money spent.
Conclusion: I would recommend this product for any woodsball or scenario player who's looking to add quick sighting and stability to their A-5. You can add just the stock or opt for the air-thru option for remote setups, which I would recommend. Probably the nicest addition you could make to your A-5. I rated it a 10 for pure functionality, it does what it's supposed to do in a straighforward, simple manner. A superb product.
10 out of 10

Do you know if and where they make these for left eyed or left handed people?

LT means left handed, and RT means right handed, correct?

i gotcha, before they redid their site it was listed as a seperate product rather than a pull down, thanks though.

Did you have to get anything extra to get the air through stock to work with an expansion chamber?

how do you fit the palmers stab AND xchamber on with a macroline?
ive only been playing with my A5 for 1 year now and got a palmers stb inline male thread and since it's vertical this put me off getting an air-through stock and i really want one of these in a normal version without the macroline and elbows... its really hard to choose between this and the commando stock (A.K.A. A5A2)
