It comes packaged with everything you need to attach it to your marker and play, with the exception of a remote line.Th kit includes a (rubber-coated) stainless steel air line, SAW stock with integrated air line, and all mounting hardware. (note: the "A2 standard foregrip" was not included in the package as mentioned in the advertisement).
The Tippmann 98 Custom air-thru SAW stock is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used. Check out the Places to Buy links below for places to purchase it new.
Ring on top-back interferes with aim
Air-hose could impede thumb position
The product arrived in a package with all necessary components and instructions for installation, but you must have your own tools to install it (a few allen wrenches, some combination wrenches, and maybe a crescent wrench will do the trick). The instructions for install were easy to follow, but when it came time to actually place the stock into the gun, I had difficulty ressecuring the left half of the gun to the right half. Ultimately, I ended up using a vice to clamp it closed while I reinserted the screws. The install was troublesome, no doubt, but worth it to deliver a rock solid product with absolutely no wobble. When I finally picked the gun up, it was a relief to not have to use the air tank as a makeshift stock, and the gun was almost half the weight that it was (before the stock was installed). I noticed that the air hose connecting the power tube/valve assembly to the stock could impede thumb position for some, but I have pretty big hands and it wasn't a big adjustment for me. Also, there is an alternate mounting method that eliminates this problem, and allows the product to be used by left-handed players. When test firing in my back yard, I noticed that the ring at the very back top part of the stock interfered with aiming, but a quick fix to this problem is to simply crane your neck forward a bit farther.The flip-up support brace really does add a considerable amount of stability, resulting in more accurate shot placement.
The product is definitely worth the $90. You get what you pay for in paintball and this stock will not disappoint. It is among the best I have seen on the market in terms of durability, and it makes your weapon look pretty badass!
