I purchased this item from the Rap4 site and was happy with their service. The stock was aesthetically pleasing, had a definite heft to it (felt more substantial than the original stock on the MR1), definitely looked good, and was functional.
That's the good.
The bad is that half way through a 12 hour scenario game, the retaining screws on the RVA assembly (the part that mates to the gun and holds the stock tubes together) wiggled free and cause my marker to drop. Worse, this happened in the middle of an intense battle and afterwards I was unable to find the stock or the screws.
Also, while it wasn't that much of an issue when I put it together, I found that the marker and the stock don't mate together well. There was significant wobble with the stock which, in retrospect, probably contributed to the screws working free. If I had it to do over again, I'd definitely put some loc-tite on those screws before going out.
This product would have worked very well for my purposes (both form and function) had it not fallen apart while performing the duties it was intended to perform. The manufacturer should address the wobble issue, as well as perhaps securing the retaining screws a bit.
I'm giving it a 3 because I liked it for the short time it actually worked. Otherwise, I'd be giving this product a 1.
