You can add the stock yourself. It's only 2 bolts you need to tighten in the bottom of the grip frame.

IMO, a stock, or some way to stabilize a pump, makes a big difference. It helps to stabilize the marker as you pump, so you can shoot tighter shot-to-shot groupings. The added weight of a T or L stock is negated by the support your shoulder gives, so it doesn't make it a lot heavier. However, that's just been my experience with one. Plenty of people play pump without a stock and feel no need for one.

I'm privy to straighter stocks, which is why I got the Lapco. I tried a friends telescoping T stock, and I found the downward angle too severe for my preference.

A milsim stock out the rear of a tippmann is lightyears differnt then a bottomline stock on a phantom or even an backbottle ASA mounted quick changer stock. The Tippy coming out the rear makes it IMPOSSIBLE to sight down the barrel without a sight rail riser or offset, it usually then just becomes added useless weight. WIth a pump, they are usually mounted on the bottomline, which opens up the top of the marker so you can EASILY sight down the barrel without the need for added crap. Even a backbottle ASA mounted 12 gram changer stock like a Micro CA feels great, cause it is angled down, sitting the marker up higher, once agian freeing up a clear sight down the barrel.

You don't need a stock on a marker. I play without one often. But they come in handy when trying to hold a steady shot down, or if you choose to auto trigger, it will be an invaluable assett to have, it will help keep your shots on target.
