steadies your aim and increases gun stability while firing
cant see very well down sights, wiggles a bit (see below)
this is not exactly something that youd buy for performance (ill admit, it looks awesome) but i have found that in the long run, this will really help you nearly as much as any other gun upgrade. this is because it steadies your aim, and is definately a must for flat-line users. you can get your bead faster and hold it longer because the weight of the gun is being pressed into your shoulder, not being help up by your arms. the downside of this is that when your trying to get low enough to look down your sights, it kinda gets in the way if you have a medium-large mask. i have found its not much of a problem with a dye invision, but most people may want to purchase a sight rail (some people just learn to compensate) when i first installed it, it kinda wiggled a bit (as if it wasnt sitting flush) but i just called up the maker and they helped me tighten it down so now its ok
overall this is a very good investment that will help increase your aiming ability, and i would definately suggest it to anyone with a gun that is better at long range shots
i think this is an excellent upgrade to any gun owners who have long range shooters (ie, flatline) since it shortens the time it takes to get a bead and hold it. i give it a 9 because i had to call the makers to figure out how to make it fit snugly, but it wasnt a hassle in the least
A-5 with proteam sniper stock, 10"barrel with shroud, reactive trigger, and intruder expansion chamber.
sturdy, comfortable, looks cool, helps aiming (depending on your style).
slight difficulty sighting due to mask interference, but a sight rail will fix that.
I went on proteam's website, and ordered the kit from their. It came assembled,so I have no idea how easy or difficult it is to install the stock. I'll find out next time I take my marker apart I guess. It's a little bit pricey, but I got my tax returns in and figured what the heck. I was a little worried before I ordered it that it might be kinda flimsey, but it was actually very sturdy. Depending on your mask, you might have trouble sighting down the barrel, but a sight rail will fix it. My friends can't get over how cool the marker looks. Also, I'm pretty sure you have to use a remote or the intruder expansion chamber , drop forward, or attach your tank vertically because the stock interferes with the conventional attachment point. I bet this will be helpful to flatline users who need to keep their markers perpendicular to the ground in order for the backspin to function properly.
If I was going to upgrade a marker in increments, a stock would definately be lower on my list than say, a new barrel. But if you have the loot and like the look, its definately a worthwhile product to buy. I give it a 9 instead of a 10 because of the slight sighting issue, but besides that, its great.
Solid, very well made, and cheaper than some of the alternatives
This stock really does add to the game, it allows for a more steadied shot, and a sturdy feel to the marker, it also makes the marker more comfortable with the remote line, cause I used to use the tank as a stock of sorts. It also gives a really nice intimidating mil-sim look to the gun, gets people to really turn there heads and look twice at it. It does have the problem of not being able to see through the regular sights, and any sort of add on sight that is directly attached to the marker, but was easily solved by placing the offset rails onto the marker. Over all this is a really nice addition to the marker, and it is one of the more reasonably priced stocks out there. It also had a bit of wobble to it, but it was truly barely noticeable, and did not detract from the use of the stock
Outstanding product, very nice addition for the A-5, and is far superior to some of the stocks out on the market

Looks- this thing makes your gun look so awesome
better feel- lets you really hold the gun steady and helps you aim better
heavy- makes you gun off balence unless you have a remote coil like me
price- to not make your gun any better it sure dose cost a lot
cant hold your gun close so in speedball I have to take it off or I cant fit behind a bunker but its very easy to take off as well as being very quick
If you have the money to blow get it. gives you and awesome look 8/10 because it should be cheaper

This is a great, solidly built stock. However, after use it begins to wobble. An o-ring stretched painfully around the end cap will fix it, but you have to replace this frequently, and it makes it a pain to get off and on. Good stock though. It does exactly what a solid stock is meant to do.
Good solidly built stock for a solidly built marker.

- Cool Looks
- Alternative to Drop Forwards
- Bad for Speed Ball
- Not a perfectly tight fit
I got this upgrade because the A-5 looks like a Heckler and Koch assault rifle with it and a nice barrel. The stock does the job of a drop forward by equalizing the weight throughout the gun and rests on your shoulder so the gun is easier to haul around. The A-5 weighs quite a bit fully loaded so I like it. Very well made. Pro Team Products are quite well done.
Love it. Great looks over a drop forward. I recommend this over the sliding stock because I had one for my 98 Custom and it got all rusted up and broke eventually.
Steadys aim drasticly
Looks freakin' awsome
Sturdy, tight fit
A lil heavy
Interferes with your mask a little, no biggie
This stock is great. It is a lil heavy but when you put it up to your shoulder it offsets that. A 20 oz Co2 fits barely, a lil awkward to shott with. It'ts very sturdy too. I admit, i took a fall down a hill and when i landed, my gun was muddy but other than that fine. It increases aiming ability, especially if you run a remote system like me. Like they say, its made outta the same stuff the real guys use. Has a rubber end to soften it a little. Definately makes it look real : ) i had to say that. Diminishes the small kick that the a-5 has.
This stock is a great accessory and in my eyes, a necessity. I strongly disadvise this but, if ur friend is makin u mad, give him a tap with it. lol JK dont do that. Especially if their name is Michae Anthony Fuentes.
This stock serves its purpose well and makes the A-5 look like an MP5 even more. The only complaint I have is that the slide the bottom end cap push pin in, I had to insert it into the opposite side (side with the cyclone) of the A-5. This doesn't matter at all, I'm just mentioning this just in case you have problems installing the stock.
-Quick and simple installation
-Gives a better MP-style look
-Adds back weight and stability
-MUCH better mask clearance than other stocks
-Push pins may have to be put back in differently to fit right.
If you're looking for any stock, this should definitely be the one. The solid stock looks by far the best on the A-5 (instead of collapsible and folding ones) and gives you the best clearance for your mask to allow you to use raised sights or even the stock sights. Also, if you play speedball, you can easily put back the old end cap, then put the stock on for woodball. I think my $70 was well spent on this product.

Can you say MP5, looks great with flatline, better than having a butt plate
A little bit expensive
This stock can make your A-5 look amazing especially with the flatline, although it is somewhat heavy it gets balanced out. If you are a scenario player or just want a cool looking gun this is a must have. The A-5 already looks like an HK-5 so just put on this stock and it will be the best looking gun ever.
Heavy and expensive, but worth every penny. If you want to make your gun a lot cooler this is the way to do it.
never had stock before, ummm butt plates on tanks?
Tippmann A5 with Flatline or either Lapco Bigshot (mostly Flatline), E-Gip, Sniper FX stock, Remote Coil, 12 oz. Pure Energy tanks
makes A5 look excellent, feels more real and not plastciy like some guns
expensive, holes did not line up exactly
This stock is a little expensive but buy it. If you have the Flatline it will balance out the front heaviness of gun. It makes the gun look real, which may be bad if the police see you. The holes did not exactly line up when I put it on so I cracked my grip frame a tiny tiny bit installing it, but that did not matter. It is expensive but if you can afford it buy it. It takes 2 seconds to install, no brains needed.
MP5 anybody? This stock is expensive which is why its is getting a 9, not a ten.
