I' v had my car stock for quit some time now and the only things I could fine wrong with it was that it was heavy, and only in some places it would be in the way. I thought it look great on my tippmann. It was very helpful when I wanted to snip people out. As I read the other Review found out that someone wanted to put one on and still have a speed ball gun, that might not be a good idea. I have took mt stock off now. But when I had it on it was the best one you can get. I love the removable settings. over all i thought it was great.
It was a nice upgrade to my gun.

70 bucks(bought mine used)
Pretty much same as using the co2 tank
All in all its worth it if your going for look( i was) because it really looks like a military type rifle(m16, m4a1) only bad thing is that it sits a little high. in other words it doesn't come down low enough, it only touche the top of shoulder(at least it does w/ the way i hold it)
If your a woods ball(i am) or a scenario player than its a good investment

- Sturdy connection to gun
- Adjustable for combat type
- Difficult to disassemble and clean fully after game
Having used A-5s with the same stock design, I was already familiar with the feel. Under normal woodsball situations, the stock added stability and that extra degree of control when moving around or trying to steady your aim-point for sniping or longer ranged fire.
When in an urban scenario area, the stock can be retracted for ease of movement in the tighter confines of buildings, or for shooting around corners off-handed.
A side benefit I noticed with this stock - and this simply could be just me - was that if you had any reason to one-hand your marker, it would brace nicely against the forearm if you're upright and stretching your arm, or against the bicep if you're keeping your arm bent.
The one in-game drawback I noticed was that even with the extra little raise in the sights with the flatline shroud, you could not use the sights properly. This can be solved with a raised rail (with or without offset) sight, but it's harder to find one that will fit the accessory rail on the shroud.
I'd recommend this stock to anyone wanting something that's as flexible for gameplay as they are. If you're going to use the flatline, however, you may want to look at getting a more angled folding stock or a solid one with a slight cut-out for the mask to let you get your eyes more in line if you don't want to spend another ~$100 CDN on sight rails and optics.

Lessens recoil, easier aiming
Made of plastic (feels like sturdy plastic though), pressure thing(more on that below)
The BT Car Stock is a great upgrade for your gun. A stock lessens the recoil of your gun to almost nonexistant, since your shoulder absorbs the blowback. It also helps you keep your shots in the same spot. I got this stock at a store for $55, brand new, so I don't see how price is a problem. This stock is made of plastic, however it feels like sturdy plastic. When you readjust and pull out the stock, and then put pressure on it it lurches forward like 5mm, and then doesn't go any further (so it does have a solid, non-moving feel). I don't see how this is a problem worthy of people giving this product a 4!
I would definetly reccommend this product. The only problem is just a minor flaw that doesn't even affect your game. I'm giving this a 10 because this product deserves a higher average score (but I'd normally rate it a 9 because it isn't perfect).

Tippmann 98 Custom
BT-16 M4 Barrel (16 inch)
BT Adjustable Sight Rail
Cyclone Feed System
FX Car Stock
3 Point Adjustable
Keeps gun stable in sniping positions
Medium Grade plastic
Wobbles a bit(not much)
Ive used this stock ever since I bought my 98C and have had no problem with it. Its execlent for sniping. It adds a good bit of stability to the gun, and gives a good premise to aim. Its nice to be able to retract the stock to run around. Like I said in the weakness's, it does wobble a tad, and its plastic. However, I play nothing but woodsball and the only thing Ive noticed is the little notch on the adjuster(which is metal) is beginning to rust a bit. In my opinion, all in all, its a good stock.
Good stock, gives a good milsim look. Could be a bit cheaper.
Tippmann 98 C
Preformance power tube and bolt
tasco red dot site 1X
The pin holes are very shallow it moves forward when you put to much pressure.
This stock is comparable to any of the other stocks in price but not in preformance. I got mine for $55.00 and i just got a new folding stock for $54.00. I thought it was really anoying when the stock would slide forward when you put pressure on it.
I would not recamend this stock to any one.
I would suggest getting a folding stock.
I gave this a 4 out 0f 10 because of its shallow pin holes.
