The Lapco Drop Forward with Stock is made with the same high quality as the standard drop forward, but comes with a stock to stabilize the gun. The stock can be installed in three different ways to give the exact length you need. Kit includes; drop forward with stock extension, tank adapter, and mounting hardware.
The Lapco Drop Forward with Stock is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Very solid, sensible design, adjustable to a degree, improves steadiness
Weight if you're a weenie, does make the marker a bit longer
This stock/drop forward is very nice. It stabilizes your shooting and gives your body another reference to get in the perfect position to fire. The drop forward helps distribute the weight. This stock definitely improves my accuracy, especially when I have time to line up shots.
I use this stock with my Palmers Pyre (a pump) and find it matches really well. If you're a speedball player with a very light marker and need to get really tight into bunkers, you may find this stock a bit too heavy and long. However, it fits my style perfectly and I'm shooting right where I would anyways if there was no stock.
If you like the idea of a stock, you'll like this one.
Oh, and you can shim the ASA a bit if you have a tank cover on your 68 ci. HPA tank so that it doesn't rub. It will then fit perfectly.
This stock and drop forward is very well built, easy to adjust, and adds a lot of stability to your play. It also brings your tank forward to nicely distribute weight. It's probably more of a woodsball or scenerio item than speedball, but a back player may dig this as well. I'd rate it 9.49 if I could, but instead I'll let it drift down to a 9. Solid item.

Just like Real estate: location, location, location.
Can loosen during long play
This stock is in my opinion the best stock avliable for one reason, and one reason alone: location. Since it mounts on your bottomline it will not interfere with your mask. For those of us who grew up shooting red ryders, and other shotgun/rifle styled things this is huge. Other stocks like the CAR and Fixed do not allow your face close enough to the marker to see down the sights without smashing your mask. The location also feels very natural. The butt of the stock sits comfortably against your shoulder while the rest of the marker falls right into place. This is huge in long scenario play when it keeps you from getting fatigued as quickly.
The only weakness have found is that it can loosen up if you are out for several hours on a mission. This can be prevented by teflon taping the screws.

KAPP DZ3 drop
Palmers Stab - female
(Lookin for an AT-85!)
Has offset holes
Scratches kind of easily
This is the only stock I have used, but it works very well. It has a very solid feel to it when I'm playing. As I said before in the strengths, the length is just right for me. The butt of the stock is right where I want it to be. It has some diff. options for length of the stock, which is also nice. One other thing with this stock is that it's very customizable. I had the Palmers Stabalizer rings hooked up to where the ASA would go, and that worked quite well, except the screws don't quite fit in the hole under the ring. I'm going to use it with the Stab rings screwed directly into the stock without the extension part if i ever get an AT-85.
Overall, I would definately recommend this stock! If you don't need an ASA on your stock, then this might not be for you, but if you need a slight drop for your tank, with a stock built in, this is great!

steadies the gun very well, plus has drop forward
Great addition to any gun. Since I do a lot of hunting it is very comparable to the weight of a shotgun, with the same solid steadiness. Very durable as well. Fits up to a 24oz tank. My 20oz tank fits perfect. It does add some weight but very light for me until I put on a full 20oz CO2 tank. thats why I have a remote with bottle holder.
10 out of 10 because it does what it is intended for.
Various drop forwards, gas-thru stocks, an actual wooden stock...

really does steady your aim, well built, looks nice, center's weight a little
Heavy, makes your gun a lot longer, doesn't fit 20oz tanks well
I got this when I was mostly playing woodsball with my friends. It was a very nicely built item and it's adjustable to fit you most comfortably. It really is amazing how much a stock can steady your arm when shooting. It was nice for those "sniping" situations where you reeeeeally need a one-shot kill...
The stock was pretty heft though, it added a good amount of weight to the overall setup and that's never good. I also noticed it didn't fit 20oz Co2 tanks very well either, a bit of the tank would stick into your shoulder quite uncomfortably. I'm sure it would be fine for one of the smallerish tanks though.
All it all it was pretty comfy and functioned well.
Not a bad product if you ONLY play woodsball, a bit much for what you get, but maybe stocks just aren't really my thing. I'd recommend if you don't mind a heavy gun and you drink a lot of coffee.
