Looking for the coolest stock on the market, here it is. This stock is based off the mp5 sliding stock. You will find nothing like this on the market anywhere. This is not an airsoft piece converted to fit your gun; this is a whole new product. As with all our parts you will find no cheap plastic here just solid aluminum, the rails have been positioned so they slid along the top portion of the gun. This allows the rails to slide over the top of the air hose and collapse the stock completely. The button mechanism uses a heavy duty spring, locking the stock into any one of its 6 positions. All the pieces are hard anodized to a black satin finish that matches the a5.
The Tippmann A5 MP5 Sliding Stock is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
None in my opinion
i just bought this stock and it came in the mail today.....and all i have to say is that i am truely impressed.
the stock is of good metal quality and durability. It can be out of your way completely and yet extend to a great length. The button on the top to extend it takes a bit more pressure to push than i think it should but it keeps it nicely in place.
The installation of this stock was a bit tricky but well worth it. First of all you need to lose your top pin and pit in this little metal tube that looks like the same pin but it dosent stick out on the sides so the stock can slide forward and back. It was kinda hard to put the matel tube in (I had to hit it a few times with a screw driver) but it went in. I doubt i will ever get it back out unless i get a tool from home depot or something but i dont really plan on taking it out.
overall this is just a really great stock. Once you buy this you probably will NEVER go back to any other.
Too high for most sights
No sling mount
No rubber hammer stop
This stock looks great and is aluminium from front to back, adjusts easy and is quick to install.
Unfortunatly some aspects of it are not designed so well. Most of the screws were loose and required me to lock tight them in.
The stock wobles in the adjustment point and the adjustment point itself wobles in the A5, something that should be first priority to avoid in design of a stock.
The fact that the rails slide down the upper part of the A5 mean that its very difficult to get your eyes to any sights without a raiser if youv'e got a mask on.
There's no sling mount anywhere on the stock and its taking the place of what would normally be your sling mount (the stock rear cap).
There is no rubber hammer stop on the inside of the stock to cushion the hammer, however they do include an o-ring to use and as it isn't a plastic cap it may not require the hammer be cushioned as I doubt it has any chance of blowing out.
I would probably buy a different stock knowing what I know now, although it looks great and is made of quality material, the flaws in design and construction make it less than practical.
