She may not win this year's crown for prom queen, but damn can she cook! The Tippmann / Special Ops Dogleg air-thru buttstock kit with View-thru™ technology is designed specifically for the Tippmann A-5 marker. The View-thru™ technology provides you with an unequaled sight line down the marker, while still offering the stable support that a normal buttstock provides. It’s just one of many great "Mods That Make Sense," designed by Special Ops Paintball.

The durable Dogleg buttstock gets its name the stock is designed to "dogleg" or "jog" around the shooter's head and return to rest securely on the shoulder. It's a pioneering A-5 buttstock that allows you to drop your head and mask completely behind the Tippmann A-5. Combined with the stovepipe offset A-5 hopper, the Dogleg is part of the “complete ergonomic solution,” giving you a secure, stable shooting platform and an unobstructed view down your A-5.

Made from extremely durable nylon-plastic composite, the heavy duty Dogleg is virtually unbreakable. The performance-enhancing stock is a practical mod that can withstand brutal abuse on the woodsball field. The air-thru Dogleg features an integrated air line and solid attachment point, so you have an efficient, reliable, rugged air-thru setup for your Tippmann A-5.

Includes:
Dogleg Buttstock
Adapter and all necessary screws

Technical Specs:
Designed for right-handed shooters
Length: 11 inches
Height: 6 inches
Bow Offset: 2.5 inches (measured from center)
Material: Glass-filled nylon plastic composite (like that used in real firearms).
Product Availability 
The Special Ops Paintball DOGLEG AIR-THRU STOCK is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Marker Setup: A-5, air through dogleg stock, apex barrel, AA 14" barrel, Tasco red dot sight, x7 hopper
Strengths: Well built
Rubber shims for a good fit
Allows you to aim down the barrel
Weaknesses: None so far
Review: I was debating whether to purchase the a5a2 or dogleg air through stocks. When it came down to it I had to decide whether I wanted a good looking marker or a functional marker. I'll take functional over looks any day. First thing I noticed when I opened the box was how well built the product was. The rubber shims will ensure a solid tight fit. I've read people having troubles installing, but I found the installation easy. There is a huge difference of how steady my aim was with the stock. Compared to other stocks I have used this is far superior. It's all about the unhindered aim down the barrel. I use a red dot sight and I have no need of a offset rail. The first word everyone says when they try my marker is "wow".
Conclusion: This is a great product. I could recommend it to anyone with a a-5

Experience:

Marker Setup: A-5, Dog-Leg, 16" S/P Tactical, HPA on remote, Trinty Sight Rail
Strengths: - Performs as advertised.
Weaknesses: - Might be more comfortable if the stock 'dropped' more.
- 'realism' factor.
Review: First let me say that I've only used this item a handful of times and, should my opinions change, I'll be altering the review.

I saw this product in the store and thought it was a brilliant idea. So I bought it. I must say that I am only minorly disappointed with the results. As advertised, it allows you to place your head directly behind the marker while wearing a mask, thus allowing you to see down scopes and sights.
It is of solid construction, though plastic, and does not feel as though you're about to snap it off when running about dodging paintballs and screaming bloody murder. The fact that the quick-release nipple is on the end of the stock, placing your remote line somewhere below your armpit, is brilliant. It means your line is always out of your way, so you're unlikely to get it caught up on equipment worn on your front side.
Installation, removal and cleaning is, for the most part, painless. It can be a tad finicky trying to get my front grip over the braided line, and I had a brief issue with leakage until, shockingly, I discovered I had neglected to tighten a part. Other than that, it's a breeze.

My gripes? I personally feel the stock could be a touch longer, but the length is acceptable as is. However, if the stock dropped more, instead of coming nearly straight out from the marker, it would make things a little more comfortable. As it is, I feel as though the stock should be sitting higher, which usually put the bottom of the butt somewhere around the top of my shoulder. A friend at the field made a similar comment. An alternative to the stock dropping would be to have the butt a little larger, height wise. But, to be entirely fair, I only really noticed this while playing with stock iron sights. Once a rail and a scope are on there, the stock sits at what I feel is a perfect height.
Conclusion: All in all, a fantastic product. I thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend it. Sadly, if you are going for a realism factor, this stock doesn't entirely deliver, but I believe its functionality more than makes up for its 'lack' of form. Still, it does look impressive, in its own way.

Review: When I first got my Dogleg stock form Special Ops I was really excited and pulled it out of the box and started attaching it on my A-5 right away. It was a little tricky getting the braided hose to bend around under the fore-grip, but with a little muscle & determination I finally succeeded.

With the stock and fore-grip attached I shouldered it and looked down the sights. It was a breathtaking experience being able to see down the sight just like a real weapon... but somehow the stock didn't seem like it was attached tightly to the marker. So I looked in the box for the spacers I had seen earlier. After taking the stock off and adding a spacer, I found that the push-pins no longer pushed in. I ended up using a hammer to tap them into place. The stock now felt like part of the marker.

Now that the stock was on tight I took it outside to try it out. I screwed on a CO2 tank, but hadn't cocked the marker and gas was rushing out the barrel, so I quickly cocked it. Then to my absolute horror the plastic split where the 90 degree hose adapter screws into the stock, and CO2 was spraying all over. I quickly shut off the tank, and examined my predicament. It seemed to me that the 90 degree adapter had been overtightened and added extra stress to the plastic causing it to split under pressure.

I emailed Special Ops and they sent me the necessary information to send it in and get it repaired. They said I should have it back within a month. I was surprised when less the a week later the stock was delivered again. I took it out and examined it. They had sealed the split and the stock looked good as new.

I decided to take out and try it again. This time I cocked the marker before I gassed it up, and everything went fine. I suited up in my paintball gear and went into the woods were I have a course set up with plastic bottles to practise with. For the first time my A-5 actually handled like a real weapon, with my 12" C-Series Barrel, and a remote hose, the Dogleg stock was balanced just how it should be. I have an ADCO Sure Shot sight, and I was able to throw the marker up to my shoulder and squeeze off 2-3 shots and nail a 2-liter pop bottle at 50 feet while on the move.

Aside from the overtightened 90 degree adapter this product is able to withstand a lot of punishment. I have used it in -12F temperatures without any problems. Even the widest masks will allow you to see down the iron sight, or through a red dot without having to get an offset rail, or riser. My first shot accuracy increased by at least 60 percent. I highly recommend this stock to anyone who wants an air-through stock that allows easy use with any mask.

One thing that many people don't know is that when cleaning your A-5 with a dogleg, there is a screw on the back that points toward the barrel. This screw attaches the "dogleg" part of the stock, to the stock "adapter plate"(the adapter plate is where the push-pins go into the stock). You can unscrew this screw and the stock comes right off, then there is no need to unscrew your hose from the 90 degree adaptor. Just remove the tombstone from the A-5 and your stock is off the marker.

When compared to my friends Special Ops Commando stock, this stock blows his away. He always has trouble with his mask having to find the grove just right to look down the barrel, but he still can't get low enough to see through the iron sights. With the dogleg I have no trouble looking through the iron sights, or my red dot.

If you read this review, please rate it. If I didn't do a good job, I would like to improve it.
Conclusion: This is a very good product for anyone who wants to increase their first shot accuracy. I give it a 9 out of 10 because of the 90 degree adapter problem.
