Durability, tight/perfect fit, looks good in black
None really, it just plain gets the job done
If you have a Tippmann, I don't care what model, and you want a drop forward then this is the hot ticket. It eliminates the need for universal adapters and other crap that just add more parts and more cost. The drop forward is great for 2 things: not only does it move the weight of the gun forward to almost exactly at the trigger, but it gives more room for your shoulder/arm near the buttstock (if so equipped) for easier/quicker up-downs. This is a great piece that will hold up to abuse and do its job well. Everyone i know envies my A-5 setup and this is a key part of the ergonomics/feel.
