Review: I bought this stock thinking that it would increase my accuracy and it definitely did.

Pros:
Laying down in prone and playing woodsball was a lot easier with this stock.
Run n' Gun was 99% more effective since you have the gun steady and not having to worry about a shoulder slipping off of it (like a C02 tank).
The stock fits nicely into the butt of your shoulder, making a heavy gun more comfortable to hold.
Its adjustable, so you can tailor it to your needs in seconds on the battle field. Just press in the "button" and the stock can be slid back and forth.

Cons:
This is a pain in the ass to install. You have to open the gun in half and fit the stock into the back. Then have a fun time screwing it back together.
If you have a scope on your tippmann (like i do), there is no way to look through the scope with this on it and a mask on at the same time. I even bought a raised sight rail and i still cant look through the scope properly. I even tried it with my flatline barrel and still couldnt see through the scope properly.
The end part of the stock seems wobbly, and it shifts up and down just enough to annoy the sh!t out of you. You expect a solid stock when you buy it and its not exactly what you get.
Lastly, made out of plastic and it would have been nice if a 40-50 $ stock was made of aluminum or something better.
Conclusion: I'd give the stock an 8.5 out of 10, since its a pretty useful upgrade. The advantages definitely outweigh the disadvantages.
Rating:
8 out of 10
