Review: When i bought my 98 i decided it would be a milsim marker. To do that i needed a stock, and after a lot of research came upon the Tapco 6 pos. stock.
After looking on Tapco's website, and seeing that they made actual firearm parts as well as paint ball accessories, i figured that the must have a pretty good idea of what they are doing.

Installing- Putting this stock on the 98 was easy, the disassembly of the marker can be tricky for new owners. its not Tapco's fault that the Tippmann can be difficult to take apart. All you have to do is take the back cap off, the spring out and put the stock in place of the back cap. however be sure to check that the stock is kind of straight, however this can be adjusted later by not tightening the back screw completely and twisting the stock.

Trying my 98 out for the first time without air, the stock felt similar to that of a real rifle, it made the Tippmann easier to shoulder for snap shooting, and much much easier to aim. However, with a mask on, the stock sights were rendered useless, as the stock and mask both combined to prevent your cheek from resting level to the sights. get a sight rail if you intend to use this product with a red dot, scope, or aftermarket sights.

With air, i found immediately that a remote line would have been nice to pick up at the same time. The stock and the tank combine to make shouldering the marker, and holding it slightly awkward. some larger compressed air tanks may not fit into the asa adapter with the stock on.

I fired the 98 a few times and found everything to be in working order, and the stock helped to steady my aim. People who find the tippmann kicks to much for them (LOL) will find that the stock helps reduce that, and keep them on target...... hahaha.

The stock is very tough, mine has been used for a year now, and has no dings, dents or chips, and has been through some rough dives, trips, falls and slides and will most likely stay this way for a long time.

The stock extends from 7&1/2 inches to 11&1/2 inches, with 4 approximately one inch intervals along. The lock, which is located on the bottom of the slider, locks into place, and cannot be moved unless, you squeeze it, and intend it to move.

Conclusion: Overall very impressed with this stock, tough, durable, can take a beating.

The pros outweigh the cons enough to give it a full 10/10
