Products Used:
I have never used a different stock and never will. After owning this I know why no good players use stocks and why no good guns even have stock options.
Marker Setup: Tippmann A-5, Air America Vigilante regulator, collapsable stock, 12" SP teardrop barrel, Psycho Ballistics drop forward, 90ci 4500psi Tank

WGP Orracle Autococker (But that has nothing to do with this)
Strengths: adjustable for personal preference

It is easily removed and put on.
Weaknesses: it doesn't feel very secure.
The guide pin
The stock is too high
Review: I wanted to get the stock because I wanted to have a more steady shot and I thought it would look great on my gun. When I first bought the stock, the guide pin was bent and the velocity adjuster was broken, which I didn't think was too bad because the rear velocity adjuster doesn't work as well as the normal one anyway. When I put it into my gun however the guide spring was too bent for the gun to cock. I retuned the stock for a new one which worked fine(probably just bad luck the first time) I put the stack on the gun it looked fantastic. When I used it in the field with my mask on however, I found it impossable to aim correctly. I ended up taking it off. The stock also rattles a bit, so it's not as steady as it could be. The guide pin is permanently attached to the stock, so when I store it I need to make sure nothing bends the pin as it is completely exposed at the end of the stock.
Conclusion: I hate this product and I wish I hadn't wanted my money, there are much better things to get, like a reg, barrel, drop, tank, anything at all is better than this. This product wouldn't be too bad, but it is literally imposable to use with a mask due to how high up the stock is. I need to give this a 2 because it's only use is for showing off. I would give this a 0 if it didn't look good on the gun.

I cannot stress enough how much you should not get this. Its the worst upgrade you can get for the A-5 and is a waste of a lot of money.
