I do not reccomend this stock at all. Well, let's start with the good; it's retractable so you can reposition it. It's also very sturdy and looks awesome. Now the sole reason to not buy it; you cannot look down the sights with it installed and with a mask on! Wellyou might beable to with a super flexible mask, but with my JT Spectra on, no dice. The only reason I got this was because the guy at my local Cousins talked me into it and how it retracted; he did not mention how you couldn't look down the sights. I would give it an overall 3/10 from me, but if you have an ultra flexible mask, go for it.

The only stock that you can use the iron sights is the Dog leg stock because it is notched or designed for mask use. Therefore, it positions your face behind the marker. Due to human ergonomics, sighting down is practically impossible because of the fact that ANY mask hinders your chin from touching the shoulder of a stock.

Get a raised sight rail, because almost all stocks do not let you see down the sights....thats not a sole reason not to buy it

About the not being able to use sights with any other stock but the Dog-Leg, I beg to differ. I have A JCS MP Folding stock and i can use the iron sights perfectly. I don't even have to cram the mask into the stock... I think I might have found the anomaly.

I'd have to agree. Calling it 'Crap' is giving it a bad review. If the product is solid, but you can't do what you want with it, that's not the products fault. Get a new stock or if you like the stock and how it feels, then get a raised sight rail. Easy!

I have an A2 stock and the cutout is indeed helpful, but still not quite enough without a raised or offset sight rail. Which is why I got the dog-leg.
