CAR stock--it won't clear the tank without a drop-forward in a lot of cases; doesn't get out of the way like the Blackpoint, and doesn't look as cool
Tippmann 98C--cyclone feed, e-Grip, Apex barrel, JCS folding stock w/RVA, and a partridge in a pear tree
Light, folds completely out of the way, can get an RVA on this model
May not lock in the folded position with a cyclone feed
I had problems getting this stock secured on my 98C at first. The locking nut at the mounting point actually required pliers to torque it down. Once it's torqued, though, it doesn't move. I also torqued down the knurled knob that locks the length. The only problem I encountered was that when everything is nice & tight, the stock hits my cyclone feed when folded; that's OK, but requires that I really squeeze it against the marker to get it to lock in that position.
Well i wanted to play with this stock for a few months before i wrote a review on it and let me just say this thing is awsome. It can bee run without a remote since the stock s adjustable and a tank wont get in the way.
In a tight spot? just fld it to the side mabe an inch and a hlf- 2 inches sticks out not very much at all.
he stock is made out of a solid block of aluminum so it is very sturdy but also very light. It fits very nicely onto my shoulder.
id say buy it, its adjustable to whatever length you need it and its can fold of to the side so that its not in the way.
What have u got to loose?
-- BE Folding Stock
-- BT Adjustable Rail
-- BSA 30mm Red-Dot
-- PMI Remote Coil
-- Smart Parts 14" Progressive Barrel
-- Tippmann Double Trigger
-- Tippmann Camouflage Graphic Kit (98 Custom)
-- Pure Energy Co2 Tanks x3
First off, I bought this in order to add more stability when aiming my marker, why else would you buy it? Yes I've used it for a year, and I just never got around to reviewing it. Anyways...
1. The stock is metal. It is not going to break on you.
2. It folds in completely, unlike some stocks that only compact or fold in slightly.
3. It is very versitile in the amount of extension you want, you can leave it compacted when it's out or you can extend it quite far.
4. It does what it's supposed to do, it helps stabalize your aim.
5. Weight, it's pretty light considering it's metal.
1. It's still (as are most stocks) pretty expensive.
2. It tends to come loose and flip around sometimes.
3. There is a slight wobble left and right, but not enough to be of a major bother.
4. You NEED a sight rail and a red-dot or other aiming system in order to aim when you've got a mask on.
5. If the stock is folded up to the gun, it's difficult to switch hands.
It's a good stock, it looks pretty cool, and it does its job. I'm not sure it was worth the $90.00 CDN I paid for it though. The loosening is kind of annoying, and it really bother me that it has to be unfolded in order to switch hands. I'm giving it an 8, because it could be approved upon.
98c pro w/ egrip,16 in smart parts progessive, remote, expansion chamber,copper red dot sight
Folding and it extends
Wobbles and cant aim down sights
well when i was a noob i wanted to get alot of up grades for my gun so i got this stock at my local pb store installed it. it was a little wobbly so i tried to add tape to the inside to tighten it up..... it helped a little but not much so i delt with it for a while until my sister broke it (i dont know how because it made form metal).
After that i decied to get a different stock and i went with the tapco SAW and it was the best thing i did for my gun
If u want some wobble in your stock then go ahead and buy it bc its only 55$ but i wouldn't recommend it bc of it wobble

I have used a gas through stock, and a six position stock. the six positing still requires a raised sight rail, and is a little big on the shoulder weld. the gas through just makes your gun look ugly but is still a little less effective as a stock
Tippmann 98 custom Pro E, W.A.S. Board, Thunder Pig Barrel, Folding Stock, Evlution II Hopper, Z-Board, Double Trigger, Drop Forward
Gives you steady and more consistent shots
Wiggles at folding point, raised sight required
it has a good conection at the gun as long as you tighten the screws enough, wiggling doesn't cause a real problem, good weld into the shoulder, like most other stocks you still need to purchase a raised sight rail, I would recommend the Lapco sight rail, they have fixed the screw problem. It is fully adjustable and gets outa the way when you need to get Close and Personel.
Its there when you need it and isn't when you don't. Great for snipers when your taking the shot and then gets short so you can make a fast get away
Tippmann Model 98 (Old-School)
Starfire bolt, Palmer Stab, AA Barrel.
Raider hand guard + Raised Weaver Rail
Opsgear Mag kit, vertical front handle.
The button is slightly hard to find with your thumb when the stock is closed.
Simplicity: I liked this stock as soon as I heard about it, mainly for this reason: It's simple. It's either open or it's closed. One of the things I hated about the old CAR stocks (especially the 6-position models) was that you had to find your favorite length every time you "collapsed" it - an annoying design flaw in my humble opinion.
Strength: For those die-hard plastic fans out there - this is going to be a real disappointment. This is no chew toy - solid construction using only high strength aluminum, brass, and stainless steel. I could seriously beat someone to death with this thing (if I was so compelled) without leaving a scratch on it. I use only the toughest materials on my marker - not a piece of plastic on it (unless you count the hopper) because frankly - I like to be able to abuse my gun without worrying about something breaking.
Versatility: When I bought the stock, it came with a drop saddle already installed (drops the stock about an inch lower than the origional, comes standard on all newer versions ot this stock), and also bought a grip mount for a measly $7.01. What this means is that I can now adjust the height, length, and mounting point of this stock to my hearts content. I can also mount it on a spyder or any other marker with a standard bottom line (Two linear holes or two offset holes on the bottom of the grip frame).
Style: I have to admit, when I first heard about this stock, I was skeptical. Nothing this versital could possibly look good. Well I got news for you: It's not only good, it is without question, the meanest looking stock I have ever seen. The look in your enemy's eyes is priceless when you click this thing into place and take aim.
A must-have for anyone considering a stock - forget the CAR stock, forget the fixed stock.
Bottom line: THIS THING OWNS - if you're getting a stock, get a JCS.

I got this product when I used to play woodsball. One of the pros of this is that it is very light. I got this put on my gun and went out to play with it. The first thing I noticed was that now I couldn't look down the gun which really sucked. I was used to shooting this way and trying to adjust to it was really hard. A couple of good things are that you can fold it and adjust it during a game and not get bunkered.
I would get this if it applies to your type of play.
This is a good stock. I've used it in a few scnearios and its held up everything ive thrown at it. Although, since this stock does not indent or dip inwards like a rifle stock or M4 stock, you cannot position your cheek with the stock. Basically, you still can't look through your sights on the 98 Custom. Also when it is folded on the side of the gun, it is very bulky and you have to be careful. But this stock was made for a steadier shot and thats what it does.
Tippmann Custom 98 black w/BT-Fixed sight rail, BT-Combat folding stock, PMI Razzor 14" silver barrel and Tasco 3-7x20mm hunting sight.
Solid, metal, very light.
Maybe a little hard to install, or is it my inexperience at that time?
Thank God Almighty for metal. I mean, really ! There's nothing like the feeling of cold black iron gun in your hands. Well, as much as I'm concerned, a paintball marker is the closest of a real gun I will ever get to. So, to add to the realism of my Tippmann C98, I bought this Ben Tippmann Combat folding stock which is, IMO, a very good and useful addition to anyone's marker.
First of all, it helps stabilize your position when firing still. I think that running with the stock unfold isn't a good tactical choice, but there are people in my paintball team that think otherwise. I do like to use tips that my brother (which had military training) gave me about how to breath while picking your target, then at the peak of inhalation you squeeze a shot then let go and start again (a hint : if you missed your target and it spotted you, run instead :P).
I found the stock somewhat hard to install on first try, but then it did stay right where it was after I installed it (not like a friend of mine whose stock did came loose and dropped on the side at time).
Well, a good stock made of light metal (much better than plastic ones), solid enough to last long and, face it, it surely adds to the realism of your marker.
