Review: Ever since I started playing paintball, I've been drawn to woodsball. As a result, I started buying stuff from SpecOps to replace some of the cheaper addons I had already put on my A-5, thus converting it to a full woodsball marker. The A5A2 stock system was the ultimate addition to a pure woodsball gun. DO NOT BUY THIS IF YOU EVER INTEND ON PLAYING SHORT FIELD GAMES! The stock plus any decent length make the A5 a huge marker. This is perfect for woodsball games, or other similar games where appropriate large cover is available. I've tried playing speedball with this gun and it is impossible to remain a small target. That aside, this stock feels like it should have come with the gun. It looks cool (especially with the SpecOps Paintball logo on the stock and foregrip) and functions perfect. Well, almost perfect. It took a few games for me to notice a hardly audible leak from the receiver, which was easy to fix with an allen key. The benefits definitely outweigh the negatives though. The stock is rock solid and shows no wobble at all. With the proper mask it allows the marker to be drawn close in to the face and facilitates comfortable, accurate shooting. Also, by relocating the tank it balances the heavy A-5 out. All in all a smart purchase for the woodsball enthusiast.
Conclusion: My favorite modification to my A5. Glad I bought it. Only a point off for the minor problems I've had making it work perfect.
