Looks pretty cool
Has a storage space
I got the BT Combat stock for Christmas, and I was pretty happy. Then I put it on, and it kinda wobbled a little. That was a little disappointing, but it was still really nice to have. It doesn't collapse, or have air-thru, or fold or anything other than just steady the gun, but it was still nice to have. And it does have a cool little storage compartment that came in handy a couple times for holding a swab or spare battery.
Now for the bad. It wobbles. Not a lot, but enough to be annoying. Also, since there is a single main screw holding the stock to the main cap, the whole stock spins around the long axis of the marker. Now before it broke, it was nice to steady shots, but it was a bit too long for close quarter battles.
And for the coup de grace: After carrying my marker around for about two hours in a scenario, I connected my harness to the provided loop at the base of the stock, and ten minutes later, my marker falls to the ground, shooting the rear spring out. The rear base plate had broken free of the quickstrip pins, effectively making it a 98C stock. It's now useless.
It works if you don't abuse it, but there are better choices out there for cheaper.
Abuse it? Using the provided harness loop qualifies as abuse? Sorry, but if hanging the gun from the stock is going to cause the stock to fail, they should not have provided a loop that is clearly designed to attach a strap to.
Besides, being a stock, it's supposed to be able to take some abuse. I've since used stocks from both Opsgear and JCS, and neither of them has had any problems being anything other than spectacular. That BT stock started wobbling more and more until it finally broke; a quality product shouldn't have wobbled in the first place.
