Tippmann 98 custom with Black Point Engeneering Combat Folding Stock
Can be folded out of the way when not needed.
Sights on the gun cannot be used when folded out. Lock got stuck on mine.
Overall, a very good product. I recommend buying it. I got mine at Jax Outdoor in Fort Collins Colorado. I fixed the locking mechanism by taking the stock apart and drilling a small hole in the center of the mechanism. I then filed down the rough parts and oiled it. If you are using a plastic vest, it is hard to adjust to where you are aiming.
Good product for the money. I recommend that all serious players purchase it.

A little about me:
I prefer small compact guns, pistols and pumps.
I tend to dislike stocks, they never seem to put the gun where I want it.
I am left eye dominant & shoot mostly right handed, so I prefer my gun to be as close to inline with my left eye as possible...thus my dislike of stocks.
The "JCS" folding stock.
I received this stock in a trade from a fellow Phantom user, he also included a small wedge to give the stock a slight downward angle. After installing the stock on my Phantom VSC, I adjusted it to the shortest length and took it to the range (back yard). I was already used to my Phantom, and considered myself a pretty good shot with it within a range of 50'-70' without any type of stock or dot site. I did find however that the stock gave me a steady platform for the longer range shots & really improved my grouping. Also the mounting holes are set so that you can shift the stock left or right, easy to dial in a good fit.
Well it seems that the guy who hates stocks just fell in love with one.
I decided to try it out at the local speedball joint, the tight bunkers and cramped positions had me thinking that I would not unfold the stock all day. That was when I noticed something...In its folded position the stock made for a nice little brace for my pumping arm, sort of like having three hands. I had the steady shot of a stock without the limiting effect of something wedged in my armpit.
Auto triggering was something that I had never attempted in game before, it seemed useless and the second ball was never close to the first. But with the stock unfolded I find that I can double tap (fire one ball and auto-trigger the second) with precision. throughout the day I found myself flipping out the stock to post up & while running from bunker to bunker.
The stock wiggles a bit, this is to be expected since it folds.
The piece that rests on your shoulder is rubber and curved...it is easy to get it hung up on loose shirts, harnesses and jerseys.
While folded it blocks the 12 gram changer on phantoms...Unfold it before reloading air.
All in all this is the most practical stock on the market, there when you want it & out of the way when you don't. I ended up removing the adjustable part and now it is a one piece stock at my preferred length. If you are like me and have never really gotten comfortable with stocks, give the folder a chance...it may change your mind.
10/10 in concept

32 Degrees T-stock - also useful
A different JCS stock - gets in the way

Stable, well-built, doesn't block sights.
None for me.
I chose this stock because I wanted one that would allow me to use the sights on the 98 custom. JCS makes a bunch of different stock, this is kind of the middle one in terms of size and price. It mounts to a 45 grip, like a drop forward, and give you plenty of room to lean in to look down open sights on your gun, or use a sight without a raised sight rail. For me, I just use the sights on the gun, and have the stock in its shortest configuration, and it's perfect. Puts the gun right where I want it.
The construction is solid, you don't have to worry about it breaking. The price wasn't bad, for $50 it's a nice piece of equipment. I don't think there's much else to say. The folding feature is nice, but I haven't had to use it very much. Luckily, it doesn't adversely affect the stability, and flexibility is always nice.
I've been using it for over a year, and I have no complaints. If you need a stock, this is the one to get.

Folds and Adjust Easy
Feels and Looks Great
I just got this stock for my Spyder MR2 and love it. It's light, feels great, and is built solid.The JCS Combat stock not only folds but the lengh can be adjusted like a CAR stock. The adjustments can be made almost effortlessly making it easy to adjust in the middle of the game if needed.
If you need a light, solid, folding stock this is the best and most affordable.
With the mask i used it got in the way so i was unable to look through my sights(Gladiator mask). When i used a Dye Invision i could see through my sights. I recommend getting a flexible mask for this stock. I really like the stock because it is useful to hold the gun still. I will also recommend getting a remote line so the co2 or nitro does not make it back heavy.
I will still give it a ten because i can use a dye invision when i use the stock.
folds when you dont need it
none so far,except for mask clearance
I bought this for my 98 custom and it improved my aim very well.it is all aluminum so it is sturdy and light. I always play in the woods so the stock works well for laying on the ground and sniping people from inside a bush.But if i need to run to another hiding place i fold the stock so i can use my gun like a pistol(shoot and run.)it also makes your gun look really cool.
I give this stock a 10even though you need a flexible mask if you want to use your sights.If you want a stock that wont break,is light and folds,this is your stock.
This is a good stock and I recommend it to any Tippmann owner. Some people complain about not being able to use the open sight, but that's not the stock's fault. The stock's right where it should be. As useful as a sight might seem, once you get in a game, you won't use it. But if aiming is that vital to you, do what I did and buy a red dot sight. I got a Daisy 2 setting red dot sight w/crosshairs for a whopping $8.88. Trust me getting this stock will vastly improve it's looks. After getting this it looked like a different gun completely.
Buy this, you'll like it. Be careful installing it. If you're a fumble fingers, get someone else to put on.
