Review: Well, this has been my third stock since I bought my A5 only a couple months ago. Since it is Opsgear, you can be sure about the good quality of the product, lightweight but still very sturdy...

The thing you'll notice when you first see it is that it is rather short. Well, since it should be in order to be able to fold next to your cyclone, so that shouldn't be that much of a problem.

It is a pretty solid stock, no wobble like the Tapco. It does however have some space in the folded position, but this shouldn't be an issue since it doesn't even need to be sturdy at that point.

The only big weakness of this stock to me is that it doesn't allow you to use any sights without any (offset)adapters. Not that I used my stock sights very often, but there still occur moments when you'd wish you would be able to quickly use your stock sights

Update: this stock has broken two of the pushpins in the back of the marker. A pretty nasty thing, considering there's no PB-store anywhere near...

Conclusion: Very good stock, sturdy but still lightweight. Great to be able to simpy fold it away for CQB.
A 9.75 since you can't really use the sights, but due to breaking the pushpins it's a 9
