Tactical, Practical and Economical. The T6 adjustable stock… just like the ones used by military special operation forces.

Priced well below many lower quality alternatives, this T6 adjustable stock is virtually unbreakable. Manufactured from the same heavy-duty composite plastic used in military stocks, the tube is made specifically for paintball markers. You will never have to worry about rusting or screws coming loose.

Improve your shooting accuracy – the T6 adjustable stock quickly and easily adjusts to 6 different positions. This insures each individual gets a perfect fit, even when wearing protective gear.

The T6 adjustable stock is made in the USA by TAPCO and has a lifetime guarantee.
Product Availability 
The Tapco A-5 T6 Adjustable Stock w/Tube is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

14" 32* Night Stick barrel
Tapco car stock

Strengths: Good quality hardware & price. Drop-in fit. Ball speed still OK. No wiggle. Helps aiming.
Weaknesses: You'll need an offset rail to use sights while wearing a mask.
Review: Got the latest Tapco catalogue in the mail last weekend and saw that they’re making paintball gear now. Cool! Double cool, because I KNOW that they make quality stuff for guns, so their paintball hardware has got to be great. I mean, it’s just their regular AR-15 rifle stock with a new tube. If it can hold up under .223 cartridges, CO2-driven .68 paintballs ought to be a cinch. And I wasn’t disappointed when I pulled it out of the poly bag and pinned it into my A-5. Some of the other carbine-style A-5 stocks require all kinds of fitting and Dremel tool contortions to get them to fit and to get the right internal spring tension to properly shoot, but not this stock. It was spot on from the get-go. No wiggle where it pins to the marker, no hassle, installed in mere moments.

Then I shot it, and it was great. Steady, accurate, comfortable, and --best of all-- adjustable. I like to play toward the front and want to be able to tuck in, and this stock collapses in just right. But sometimes I’m called on to snipe from the back, so the full-length pull is nice for accuracy. Doesn’t interfere with a 20 oz. C02 tank at all, in any of the positions short to long, and a big lever makes it easy to adjust. Man, I was thinking “this thing’s a solid 10!”

Then I put on my mask and tried it. Couldn’t get the cheek weld to look down the sights, couldn’t even get close to the sight line. Extended the stock: no go. Collapsed the stock: no go. Tried every position in between: no go. Grrrrrr. And it’s not like my VForce Profiler has some kind of chipmunk-cheeks that hang way out. It’s one of the more narrow masks on the market just now. Argh.

Not being one to give up easily, I looked around for some kind of offset sight, found one from In Yo Face. Two weeks to get here, 10 minutes to put it on (and I took my time), and a couple of minutes to try it out. It works and the stock's a keeper now. But be warned, even with the offset, I really have to snug up to the stock to get a proper sight line. If you have a wide mask, a 1" offset may not be enough.
Conclusion: To really use this stock you'll need an offset rail & some kind of sights or a scope for it. Overall it deserves an 8: 10 for the solid construction & drop in fit, -2 for requiring the extra hardware & hassle of an offset to be able to make aimed shots while wearing a mask.
