Tippmann 98C: Response Trig, Smart Parts Progressive Barrel, BSA 42MM Red Dot sight, Pro-Team F/X CAR Stock
- Provides a more stable shooting platform
- Will require installation of a raised sight rail
- Lengthens gun
This stock provides an excellent shooting platform for people who are already familiar with handling rifles, and want to decrease the stress of going from how one is trained to shoot, and playing paintball.
Through military and law enforcement training, I have a lot of experiene with the M-16 family of rifles (M-16, M-4, AR- and CAR-15), and found it hard to use my existing shooting habits with my 98C. After getting this stock, my game improved greatly, as I was able to apply my previous combat training more effectively in a paintball game.
If you use some type of sighting device, whether iron sights or an electronic sight/scope, you will need to install a raised sight rail. Shooting from the stock, it brings the existing sights "in-line" with the stock, and makes it impossible to sight in wearing a mask. My setup is a Techline sight rail with a weave base bolted on to it, with a 42mm BSA red dot sight. Check www.bsaoptics.com for info.
The stock also works best with a drop forward. I found that with a 16oz CO2 tank, I could not use the stock at the fully collapsed position because of the tank. From what I've seen, the more forward you can take the tank, the better.
And, last but not least, it makes your marker look badass :-)
I would recommend this stock to anyone who has previous law enforcement or military training in rifle shooting, as it will bring a lot of familiarity to your platform. For anyone else, your mileage may vary.
