Strengths: Looks good sturdy in the collapsed position
Weaknesses: not as sturdy in the fully extended position
Review: First of all the stock that i have is one of the ones with the rear velocity adjuster. The problem with this is that the original pin for the tippmann is longer, so when you put it on you will meed to get a small metric allen wrench. you will have to extend the pin and then set screw ,and also the stocks three rings will need to be set to the closest position to to the gun because of the short pin. so there wont be any velocity adjusting from the stock. also the designers that developed this should have drilled the pin holes about 3-4 mm closer to to the end so it would fit snug. i heard that the one from ops gear fits snun and feels more solid.

MODIFICATION TIP:

I used a big O-ring between the the 2 prongs of the adapter that goes into the back of the a-5. this will make it more difficult to push the pins into thier respective places but once on it is rock solid. Another modification i made was i took the sliding stock off( just pull down on the lever that moves the stock back and forth) and took it completely off. then i took some thin shreds of duct tape and taped a 2inx2in piece laminated paper to the inside of the sliding stock, make sure that the laminated paper is at least 1/4 inch into the stock, this will eliminate the threads eating away at the edge of your laminated paper. and put it back on doesn't slide as easy as it used to but it doesn't rattle anymore either. If you do this you will have a very sturdy and stable stock.
Conclusion: if it wouldnt be so loose it would be a ten, also having to adjust the pin and set the velocity from the stock to the max setting , then adjust velocity from the screw on the side. if you take the time to do the modifications which i have given you, you will be amazed how sturdy this stock will be. i had to do my own ghetto mods but they work fine so i give it a solid 7.
