The BT Paintball Design F.E. Collapsible Stock is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Review: I have actually never used this stock during a game, but that is the problem.

First, the good.

The BT F.E. stock is a 6-position collapsible carbine stock, and is significantly beefier looking than the PCS or any other type of collapsible stock. It has a rubber pad on the butt plate which is comfortable and prevents slipping, and a small storage compartment that can be used to store batteries/ allen wrenches, etc. The stock is sturdy and does not wobble after installation.

Now the bad.

I bought this stock before BT even had it up on their website, and installed it right away. I was playing with it at my house for about 2 months over the winter, just pulling it out every now and then to look at it and hold it up. I never even shot the gun since the stock was installed.

I was looking at it one day trying to figure out how to put a sling on it. I had the sling from my old gun attached to it, and I was holding it up by the sling when one end slipped off the barrel and the gun dropped.

At this point, the stock SNAPPED OFF when it enters the gun.

Thats right, it SNAPPED off. Clean break, right where the stock enters the butt of the gun. I examined the materials on the inside of the stock and discovered that the composite material it was constructed out of had a striking resemblance to dried-out rubber......

Considering this stock was NEVER USED and SNAPPED hitting a CARPETED, PADDED floor, I'd hate too see how it might stand up to use in the field.

On the other hand, it might just have been a bad one. I'll add an edit once I've tested the replacement BT is sending me.

EDIT: I've yet to test the replacement, but I've reexamined the circumstances under which the stock broke, and it seems the thing might not be QUITE as crappy as I thought. The way the stock struck the ground was very similar to the angle that would happen if I had swung it against a tree..............I think we all agree that any stock would break doing that. I'll edit again once I've tested the replacement in the field. END EDIT
Conclusion: Considering it SNAPPED falling on a carpeted floor, I'd say a low rating of 2 seems fair. Until I try out the replacement BT is sending, I can only assume that this stock would do the same during combat, making it pretty much useless as far as an extreme sports product goes.

EDIT: After looking at the situation again I've decided to bump the rating up to a 5. I won't go any higher until I test the new one, but the stock is not as horribly weak as I though

Weaknesses: The Sling mount doesn't move.
Review: I got this at my local store for 50 bucks, when usally it was 90, so I gave it a shot.
Unlike other reviews state, the stock for me has been amazingly durable, as in I drop it on concrete and from 2 story tall bunkers (Don't Ask) and the thing has never broken.
I have found it odd that they say you can move the door handle for the tool compartment to the other side, but it's impossible, and with the Piccatiny rail on the side of where the hooper is, theres not much use. Other then that it's an amazing stock, doesn't wobble.
Conclusion: Great sturdy stock, thick and heavy also.
