Cadet2005 Monday, August 26th, 2002
Period of
Product Use:
6 months
1 year
Products Used:
Marker Setup: 98C, RT, CAR Stock, Proteamdirect A1 carrying handle, Proteam Direct 14" Commando barrel w/handguards
Strengths: I like the stock because when used properly in conjunction with a raised sight rail (like the A1 carrying handle I have with flip-up sights) it can be adapted to any need. For example, when moving from bunker to bunker in speedball you can collapse it all the way and keep a compact form that enables a steadier sight picture at the same time as keeping you a smaller and moving target. With the remote coil I sometimes use (I borrow my friend's since his marker is down), I extend it to the middle position and crawl through the high grass of the area I play at (I play more woods/outlaw ball than speedball mind you) and can quickly line up a good shot. With it fully extended, I can lie in ambush and wait. The M4 collapsible stock serves to make a normally long-range weapon adequate for close up work and for steadier assault rifle type configurations (range) which if you play like me in really any situation, this stock does that extremely well. Also, I found it balances the weight of my marker better by resting the weight of it against my shoulders rather than my arms, keeping me able to play longer without growing tired of hauling it around.
Weaknesses: Without a sight rail, forget it, this thing cannot be aimed, but unless you are planning on getting a raised sight rail for either a replica-type feel or for steadier shot positioning, there is no reason to really get this.
Conclusion: Overall, this stock is one of the best I think. I like a fixed stock but in speedball it becomes a nuiscance to move around but again, this one is quick to collapse in a pinch but won't do so unless you absolutely want it to. If you are looking for a steadier shot without having to hold it (the marker) with arm strength alone, I highly recommend this stock. Definitely worth the money, and wasn't all that hard to install either if you know what you're looking at.
