Send it in to Jared at Destructive Customs...http://www.destructivecustoms.com/ they are pretty much one of the last AKA tech shops out there and the absolute best on the east coast. AKA still recomends people sending markers to him to put together whenever they buy parts to build an AKA marker. Jared is top notch and does amazing work. But he is a one man shop, so things can take time


I heard DC wasn't taking any more work (at least for the moment). Don't know for sure if it is true, but I heard it from another local AKA owner.

Shipwreck: look into an 8 ci HPA tank if you can find one, or a 3.5 oz Co2 ;) the length is the only reason I don't use my 13 ci on my Super Stocker.

I've been wanting to get some 3.5oz for a while, but they're hard to come by. But the size of the air tank isn't really an issue at all, it's the mounting that's a problem...

Stocks can be very functional. They speed positioning, steady aim, and reduce fatigue. Unless you get a dog-leg, you'll probably want to mount a riser to help with aim through a sight because of your mask and to keep from wrenching your neck. Remote lines accomodate larger tanks while lightening up the marker. For speedball games, which tend to be shorter than woodsball, scenario, or milsim games, the weight of the tank, in addition to the weight of hoppers loaded with paint, may not not seem like a significant source of fatigue, but carrying a marker with a 20 oz tank and a hopper loaded with 200 rounds or more gets to be a demotivating after about 30 minutes.

I have no problem with stocks, I've played with them...I think that they aren't perfect, I think that they aren't necessarily the best built for paintball, but I don't think there is anything wrong with people that use them...for functional or decorative purposes. I personally am a fan of just using a tank, it works well for me, it's what I grew up doing. So I think that is what works best, but I also don't qualify them as tacticool.

For some people having the stabilization point below the grip is not comfortable at all. It just doesn't feel natural at all to me. Whenever I play you will almost always see me using a stock on my marker. If I could figure out a way to attach a stock to the back of my Proto SLG, I would probably use it a little more than what I do now.

I've Never really gotten comfortable with a stock- I've tried various different ones, too. The TM15 doesn't see a lot of use anymore, and the Timmy just feels downright Unnatural with the stock on it. This is just taking into consideration the marker- Running remote with my vest is a pain, to say the least (at least, while also keeping it comfortable and viable)

I'm going to go with that stocks are a case where personal preference trumps anything else, though. Some people absolutely swear by them. Me, I'm more comfortable without them.
