This is a stock for Spyders with external upper bolts or shark rails and round quick strip pins. (see compatability chart below.) The stock sits slightly lower on the gun, or Offset, than the other stock. It will not get in the way of the reciprocation of the bolt in its fully closed or open positions.
The stock is made of military grade abs plastic and aircraft aluminum able to stand up to any enviroment. From extreme heat to freezing, it will not fail.
This if for those who want more stability and accuracey 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.
It comes with a new external velocity screw, a new strip pin, velocity lock screw, and stock adaptor. (Pictured Spyder gun not included)
For the following Spyder Guns
Also compatible with Raven Nexion markers.
The GunHead Spyder-O Stock is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
PMI 68 Magnum with the tank acting as a stock, way way back
It feels natural on the shoulder.
It feels a little wobbly when first putting it on.
The stock works for it's job. While playing I was naturally resting the stock on my shoulded while firing. Although the TL-X has a built in drop forward it does not leave the tank where I want for use as a stock. The O-stock makes it feel more like my old pump gun days.
If you are prefer to have a stock right out the back of the marker this is a good one, it has 3 possible length settings and the built in velocity adjuster works very well also.

Very sturdy build. Attaches to the marker snugly, no wobble.
Not with the product, but it took 3 weeks for me to receive it.
The stock looks great. It is a quality addition to your marker. If you are a Spyder owner and into the Mil/Sim look, this is a must have. Or even if you are not into Mil/Sim its a great all around stock and looks better that most on the market.
I got it yesterday in the mail and messed around with it. There are only 2-3 parts for it. The Stock, the plug that replaces your current velosity adjuster (and what the stock attach's to), and the thumb screw that holds it all together. Very easy to install, and easy to adjust your velosity. You just take out the thumb screw and pull off the stock and make your adjustments. The stock is well made and there is no wobble when it is attached to the gun. The quick strip pin fits a little tight, but thats no big deal. That just means your quick strip pin wont fall out if you loose the cotter pin during the game. It is very comfortable to hold, especially if you are using a remote. It balances everything out nicely. All I need now is a good sling. Highly recomended!
The stock is a absolute must have for Mil/Sim fans.
Now regaurding Gunheads Customer service. I wouldnt say it is poor. They did eventually reply back to all the emails I sent them. I think they only return emails on certain days, so you are not going to get a instant reply. When you order, it is through PayPal, and you are not given a shipping arrival time. It took me about 3 weeks to receive mine, but they had emailed me saying there would be a delay due to lack of parts. So I would not have any apprehensions about ordering again. I would just be patient and know you most likely wont be getting it within 5 business days.
In their last email to me Gunhead says that in the next couple of weeks they will be releasing another Mil/Sim upgrade for Spyders!!! I hope they keep them coming. We cant let the Tippman owners have all the Mil/Sim fun.

To get down to the point plain and simple.... This stock is an overall good piece of equipment. It adds stablility to your shot and is comfortable to play, especially with it's three different locking positions. The price is kind of high for such an optional piece of equipment, but it depends on what you like.
The adaptor allows you to adjust your velocity, but the it is easy to screw it in to far and tear the o ring on the threads. Good luck trying to find one that small.
The overall worse part of this is that it doesn't have a plug that will go behind your bold if it's a top cocking one as the new ACS bolts are. That allows for dirt and other debris to get into the chamber and potentially ruin the gun. I was in talks with the owner of the company for months and all that he had for me was promises of a plug, but as time went by the only thing I ended up receiving were excuses.
Well to summarize it's pretty cool and durable, but Gunheads customer service is a joke. If customer service were part of my rating it would be much lower.

Heavy duty, the only descent stock for Spyders
I mainly just wanted to write this review to let people know that I had no problems with Gunhead's customer service (some of these reviews say they have pretty s***ty service). Their product is awesome and the service is great.
note: to all those interested in upgrading their spyder for milsim, Gunhead is apparently developing m4/m16 style handguards and sightrails for spyders. f***ing sweet.
Great product, fully recommended, Gunhead is a leader in their field.
-3 Different Settings
-Looks Freakin' Sweet
-With Air On-Gun, Space Between Stock and Tank Is Only a Few Inches.
I ordered the stock off the Internet, and the day it came in I put it on the gun and went out into the backyard to test it. My marker rolled up to eye level very easily in the 3rd position, and the first position made it easier to swing around quickly, all and all, the stock was worth the 70 dollars I paid for it, and the added look of my marker wasn't to bad either.
I would recommend this stock to any person willing to make their marker better than it is, there aren't very many people with these stocks, and the unique look they add and the looks in awe you get are well worth the money.
