CCI's Non-adjustable L-stock comes in two generations. The older version mounts directly to M-16 grips, the newer version mounts onto standard bottomline holes. It is a lower-cost alternative to the adjustable T-stock.
The Component Concepts Inc. L-Stock is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Butt is canted about 10 degrees to the right-see review for more info.
I bought the L-stock after using my Phantom for a while. I decided that pumping would be made easier with a stock to brace against your shoulder. I was right. It makes using the auto trigger useful and accurate. Aiming is easy and natural. This stock is heavily built and durable, and the butt is screwed onto the lateral part of the stock with a hex screw, so it is removable for cleaning, storage, or to use a customized butt on this stock.
A warning for lefties-my stock is the newer generation that mounts onto the bottomline holes. The butt is canted about 10 degrees to the right. This is good for shooting from the right shoulder as it fits the pocket in the shoulder well, makes the thin butt more comfortable. This is a disadvantage from the left shoulder, since it is canted the wrong way. You may be able to contact CCI and have Mike make a left cant or no cant.
Great product, simple, effective, durable and relatively cheap.
I find it easier to aim with this, feels good IMO.
Makes your setup longer. Not adjustable, might feel odd to some.
After not being able to aim with my Phantom really well, I borrowed a friend's OC Phantom, and he had a L-stock with the M-16 grip on it, running his 22ci/3,000psi HPA tank California style (tank mounted on the stock for those who don't know what that meant). I found it much easier to steady my shot using this, thus making it easier to hit people. There is a downfall of course, and that is it makes your setup longer. It's also non-adjustable so those of you with a different taste, you're out of luck. It is a lot cheaper than the adjustable T-stock though, but if you like the M-16 grip on your Phantom, this is your only choice. I thought it felt fine though, I recommend it as a cheap alternative.
Get it if you can't really steady your shots, I found it to help me out a lot.
