Era paintball has taken the popular military collapsible stock and brought it to the world of paintball. The Era Tactical stock has three different length positions so that you are sure to get your gun in the right position.
The Era Paintball Tactical Car Stock is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Tippmann A-5 with a Response Trigger, Flatline, Car stock, home made TacCap, Remoteline, 20oz Co2 and a 1-point sling.
Armotech Zues G2 with the Bottom Line, Quick Cap, 3.5oz Co2 and heavily modified holster.
Pressure problems and a little wobbily
I had the same pressure problems so I took the stock apart, stuck it in a vise so more of the stock is inside the marker. Also I find that it wobbles too much (doing the opposite of what a stock is suppose to do) so I stuck an o-ring around the part that fits in the marker. Now the part that buts up to you wobbles, grrrr! so I took some black vinyl tape and stretched it to thin it out and placed it under the part the buts up to you.
I 'm tempted to MIG or TIG weld the stock on one of the receiver halves.
This product is garbage, I use mine still, only cuz it costed so much.
This is a cool thing. Looks cool, feels cool, it makes the gun look pretty bad ass. However, i had the velocity on my gun set right to 280 fps without the stock, when I put the stock on, I couldn't get the gun to shoot over 240. There just wasn't enought pressure on the spring to get up decent speed. I actually had to find something to fit over the pin and add the needed pressure to the spring. Once I could get the speed up to where it needed to be, I didn't have any complaint about it at all.
I think it's worth getting if you want that kind of military look for your gun, but shop around because it can be expensive in places.
Good for show and shooting in yard.....BAD for real playing conditions...Wanna stock look for one that drops down lower so you can use it with a mask. You have to turn these rings all the way up to put pressure on the spring.....You may also run into pressure problems if you are using a remote line....Another BIG thing which made me take mine off is the alignment...This part is GREAT for shooting in your backyard without the face mask.....But in real play it doesnt work
I wont buy this if you wan to use for real game play
Proteam. The Proteam fits much better and doesn't have velocity issues. Proteam has a metal tube not plastic,metal hook on the butt and the buttplate is angled not straight.
(3) A5's, (1) Custom98, (1) Zeus G1 pistol. Armotech Zeus WSP pistol. Flatlines, E-Grips, Response Triggers, drop forwards, expansion chambers.
I got it cheap.
Poorfit,velocity issues,plastic tube,straight buttplate,nor hook for sling.
Had to tape up the square and round pegs to stop extreme wobble. Bypassed velocity adjuster with a hardware bolt to solve pressure problems. Proteams has an additional piece of metal that extends into receiver that substantially eliminates wobble. Proteam is a better fit out of the box. The Proteam is better built.
I would buy the proteam products one instead. It has a metal hook on the butt for a sling, the ERA has no hook at all. The proteam has a metal tube and the way the front of the PT stock goes into the gun it has an extra part going into the bolt area of the reciever making a tighter stronger fit. I used a lot of ductape and a bolt to fix the wobble and pressure issues. The Proteam is made much better.
messes with gun. Comes lose after a couple of games
This stock looks pretty cool on the gun, the thing is that I had a bad experience with this stock. It worked fine for the first couple games, then it suddenly stopped working. For no reason at all, the gun would uncock itself after the first shot. I took it to multiple airsmiths and they had no clue what was going on. Luckily the guy was cool and let me take folding stock that he garenteed worked. Then I was playing with a friend that also had this stock. He had a 98 custom though. then the exact same thing happened to him after a couple of games. So there was definitly something wrong with them.
Nice look, bad form, avoid this stock at all costs
