Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
This is a stock for all Piranha models. The stock is designed to sit on the gun so to not interfere with the external upper bolt.
The stock is made of military grade abs plastic and aircraft aluminum able to stand up to any environment. From extreme heat to freezing, it will not fail.

This is for those who want more stability and accuracy on the field in those long range snipes and close range combat situations. The stock has a rear sling clip so you can carry your gun long distances with ease.

Compatibility :
For the following Piranha Guns

All Piranha models
Product Availability 
The GunHead Piranha Stock is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

No other manufacturers make stocks for Piranhas that I know of. I have purchased stocks for my A5 from Tippmann. The Tippmann stick was a tight fit, but was professionally manufactured unlike the Gunhead junk.
Marker Setup: Tippmann A5 with X7 low profile hopper, flat foregrip, remote line, e-grip, flatline barrel. Also have Piranha STS as a back-up, with Dye Boomstick, drop forward, carbon fiber compressed air, e-force trigger.
Strengths: Only manufacturer that I know of that makes a stock for the Piranha.
Weaknesses: Poorly manufactured. Looks like it was made in someone's garage with basic power tools.
Review: I was excited to find that Gunhead made a stock for my Piranha STS. People are pretty impressed when I hold my own against the high end electronic markers with my low end mechanical ancient marker. It is very reliable and has served me well. I ordered the stock from Gunhead on a Tuesday. Never recieved confirmation of my order from them, which worried me a little, but I had purchased it with my MC CC that has online fraud protection, so i wasn't too worried. It arrived a full two weeks later on Friday, packaged in what looked like a cardboard box that was re-assembled with packing tape. First bad sign. Then when I opened it, there was no packaging other than bubble wrap, no instructions (second bad sign), the stock itself and a poorly milled adapter (last bad sign). The adapter was so poorly milled it did not fit my marker. I contacted Gunhead multiple times to fix the poorly milled piece but they never returned my e-mails. You'd think that for $50+ they'd at least respond to my e-mails.
Conclusion: Poor construction. Poor design. Poor customer service. The trifecta of online purchase nightmares. I am seeking a full refund at this point and may have to take legal action through my cc company. Stay away from this manufacturer!

Review: So I'm getting more and more into the whole Sim look for paintball guns, however I don't want to drop $500-$600 on a new gun to be able to upgrade to the Sim feel.

When I ordered this product initially something was miscommunicated between me and Gunhead and it was shipped to a wrong address. No problem because eventually they did ship it to the correct address and I did get it in the mail. However I emailed Gunhead several times and it took them forever to answer my questions. It was very frustrating, but I do believe that they were doing everything they could to make me a happy customer.

Next, when I did receive the stock I must say I was thoroughly impressed with the feel, and durablity of this stock. It is definitly not a cheap material stock, definitly a lot of planning and timing went into this to make it an authentic replica for your Piranha Paintball Gun. Unfortunately the adaptor did not fit into my Piranha gun, even though their website clearly indicates that it will fit any Piranha Gun. Dissapointed, I once again emailed Gunhead, and once again it did take forever to get a response.

Currently they are working very hard to get me an adaptor that will fit my gun, and like I said before they are very very good at making sure that I, a customer, is very happy. The only downfall is that the internet has made me a very impatient person and I expect a 24 hour response when dealing with customer service of a company.

I should also add that the screw that connects the stock to the adaptor that goes into your gun is kind of small, and I'm a bit skeptical because it seems as though it could fall out very well. However I have not field tested it yet and as soon as I do I will make sure that I edit this review to see how it handles under normal circumstances.

P.S. - you also need to buy a cocking rod when you use this stock because there is not one included, this kind of sucks but in the end it's not that expensive.
Conclusion: In conclusion I do recommend this stock, especially for Piranha users.

Just to give you the heads up on the customer service being very slow on their response times, but on a positive note that they are willing to make sure that their product works, and works well with your gun.
