Products Used:
GameFace Recon E5 which had a CAR stock.
Marker Setup: Tippmann X-7, 14" barrel, x-36 stock, E-Trigger, Remote line
(soon) Tippmann TPX pistol
Strengths: Does everything a stock needs to
Folds up nicely
Looks cool.
Weaknesses: FINGER GETTER
Doesnt fit early X-7 without dremeling done to it
Review: First of i have a X-7 that was a early model(first 30000 made or some crap like that)
I had to take a dremel and remove some of the back of my x-7. I hated doing it but it had to be done and tippmann is kind enough to tell you it has to be done.

CAUTION this little SOB is a MFing Finger Getter.
Once i was holding my x-7 by the foregrip with my left hand and pushed the release with my right and slammed my left hand from the sping which is mighty strong i may say. ended up dropping my baby in front of all my A-5 and 98-C bearing friends( they weren't impressed)
Other than those drawbacks its a great stock. Looks amazing, Preforms amazing, folds away so you can store your x-7 easily.
Conclusion: Buy it if you like its style you wont be disappointed

Marker Setup: X7 Flatline Barrel (Have Not Tested), Remote Coil
Strengths: Lightweight
Easy To Use
Weaknesses: Expensive
Not very comfortable on the shoulder
Not very good at folding
Review: I have been using this when I first got my X7 and it has been working great. It weighs very light and folds very easily. However (though I am right handed) it is not ambidextrous (obviously).

There is one flaw which annoying me a lot. The spring is VERY weak that it uses to pull it back. I fear that it might break eventually.
Conclusion: It makes for a nice butt and I would use it.

Products Used:
Commando Air-Thru Stock Trinity all metal folding stock.
Marker Setup: X7 - Tech-T Complete cyclone upgrade - Red Hot Powertube, X36 Front Shroud, X36 Carry Handle, remote air, 1.1 kevlar 4500psi HPA Tank, 16" Freak with all american Front
Strengths: Light, confortable, convenient folding feature,
Weaknesses: The point that fixes the stock is fragile and breaks easily.
It's also expensive.
Review: I bought the tippmann version of the folding stock because i thought the X7 was already heavy enough as it is, and i didnt want to carry a big chunk of metal around on the field.

So far the x36 stock works well. The part that attaches the stock to the marker is metal, and the rest of the stock is made out of nylon fiberglass (as someone said in the review above.

The BIG problem is crucial, easily solvable at the production plant but probably meant for it to break after a while. The part of the lock mechanism on the "stock side" is that while one part is made from aluminium the other is made from the same plastic as the rest of the stock and makes it prone to snapping when it's taken enough stress. It's a small piece that should be made of metal, and that would make the stock perfect, but it's made of plastic, and snaps really easily.

Mine broke today as i was holding it. No falling to the ground, no nothing. Just snapped while i was test firing the marker.

I will tryto fix it with epoxy two-component glue (allegedly it could work) but most people wouldnt try this, so i'm giving it a 2.

I have to say that i was very happy with it until then, but its the problem with this kind of design: Parts that are both small and plastic tend to break very easily. Well, there is a small plastic part in the stock that takes all the load of it being locked. It breaks and it cant be swapped or repaired or glued or anything, because it's also that kind of plastic that cant be glued with normal glue.. In all a very bad combination.
Conclusion: Buy something made out of metal, or at least something where the parts that are small and come into friction or tension are made out of metal.
If you buy this stock the lock mechanism will probably break and render it useless.

Buy a full metal one, or one with metal moving parts.

Products Used:
I have used other various stocks.
Marker Setup: Tippmann X7 w/ X36 Carry Handle and X36 Folding Stock
Strengths: Durable, Cool, Reliable
Weaknesses: Possibly prone to dents and scratches
Review: Attachment Point
The stock attaches to the body of the marker with two pushpins. The same pushpins that the endcap is held in with. The attachment point of the stock is made from one solid peice of machined aluminum and is very sturdy. Once the stock is installed it does not wiggle at all.

Folding Action/Spring/Hinge
When the button is pressed to make the stock fold it does so by itself. When the stock is in the locked position the spring is in tension and once the button is released the stock folds itself against the right (Cyclone) side of the marker around two sturdy pins. Because of the spring the stock stays folded and does not swing around.

Weight
Because the stock is a "skeleton" stock or "frame" stock and because it is made of glass filled nylon it is surprisingly light but obviously durable. This stock can take a couple of hits against rocks and stay intact but it seems like it would be easy to scratch or scar.

Problem
On a slip of paper included in the packaging Tippmann says that some markers may need modification to correctly install the stock. This modification consists of filing away roughly 2/32" of the grip or reciever.
Conclusion: I reccomend this product to X7 owners because it is light and useful. It is the best of both worlds when it comes to a stable shooting platform and a maneuverable marker.
