Hey guys, I'm trying to pick an air-thru stock for my 98c and I want one that doesn't get in the way of my mask when I try to use the iron sights (don't have a red dot or anything). The dogleg seems like the best solution to my problem, but when I looked through the Tippmann pictures thread I noticed that most of the people who had air-thru's had the commando over the dogleg. So now I'm curious if that is just because of the looks (the dogleg isn't the coolest thing ever built), or does the commando stock give you enough clearance with the cutout edge to look through the iron sites with a mask on?

The commando does not give you enough room for the mask.

It doesn't give you any room for your mask. If you want to be able to use your sights a little, go with the dogleg. The dogleg is only left/right handed though, depending on which one you got. It also sticks out the side of your gun, so that leaves some paint hitting room for the opfor. If you want a kind of mixture of the two, why not get one of these?. Not the prettiest thing in the world, but it should give you some mask room without having to worry about the stock sticking out the side of your gun.

--Edit--
Just remembered you wanted airthrough. I'd go with the dogleg if you are concerned with using your sights, but that's the only reason. Otherwise, just get the commando and look down your barrel to aim.

If you want sightability, you can't beat the dogleg. It's certainly not pretty (or cheap), but it is functional.

Actually the dogleg can be beat, by bottomline mounting stocks. They're just as stable, cost less, and are entirely out of the way of your mask. In fact, you're mask doesn't even bump up against it. They are usually made out of one solid piece of aluminum so there'es less wobble, and the mounting is more secure. They're also ambidextrous, so no left/right hand worries or problems with switching between the two. It's subjective, but I think a good T or L stock looks better too.

In Yo Face Paintball and CCI sell varying types of the stock. Carter Machine also makes very nice, but expensive, custom ones.

The problem I've always had w/ the Dogleg is being able to fire w/ your opposite hand... the way it "jogs" makes it more difficult to shoulder. And you can forget about ever sighting when using your opposite hand, you can't even get close -- whereas w/ a standard center mount stock atleast you can partially sight over the top of the marker.

The T or L stocks Piller referred to are certainly the best if using iron sigts are a priority. Or, you could go w/ a Special Ops T2W stock, which is just a fancy L stock (but they do look cooler, I think anyways).

I saw your post on the dogleg, very good review, but for the moment I'm opting out of the air-thru. I would like to see someone else's marker with one first before I make the commitment to get one.

On aside note, don't mean to steer this thread off topic but since it's stock related I might as well, has anyone used the Trinity MP5 Sliding Stock for the 98? It looks pretty decent, but just looking at the setup I'm a little confused as to how the six sliding positions work on it. I mean, it doesn't look like it works like my collaspable m16 stock. http://www.rockstartactical.com/index.asp?...amp;ProdID=4619

Shooting off-hand with a stock sucks anyway, especially if youre running remote.
In reference to the bottomline stock idea, the dogleg stock has a VERY sturdy mount. It really isn't hard to shoulder.
As far as asthetic choice is concerned, the dogleg isn't that ugly and the commando really doesn't seem to flow on the 98.
