i just picked up a 552 sight for say 70 bucks in hong kong. it's as good as the real thing that's selling for 400 bucks.

Jago:
>Where can I get one of those stock drops?

It was custom made by a friend who works for a medical equipment company. He did a really good job.

It is measured exactly to fit my natural stance and that might be different for you.

I can ask him if he would like to make another, but it may cost around $150 or slightly more for his time/effort/materials since it is a one off deal and potentially there are adjustments to be made to the design given your measurements (arm length / height).

Maybe he'd do it for around $100-$120 if you want to use the current design. If I recall off the top of my head it was 3" back with a 3.5" drop; I'm 6'2".

It really is nice to have it fit like a glove, so it can be worth it as the longbow stock in the default configuration is for midgets or shooting from the hip.

This replica from Croatia appears to be about $195US:

I think I'd take a gamble with a replica or at least check it out if one could procure it for $70.

Got a web link by a remote chance for replicas from Hong Kong as a plane ticket there is expensive.. ;P

The replica listed above goes for for around $195US and the hassle of getting it from Croatia is a risk of sorts not knowing the actual quality.

you have no idea of how cheap and how good the quality those chinese replica airsoft parts are in hk. they are 80- 95% alike of real piece (maybe just some rough finishing on the edges, nothing you cant fix on your own) and the stuff you see on the web are mostly marked up for the US market by 20-100 percent of what they would cost walking in.

www.starairsoft.com is a good example of some good quality cheap replica parts maker. i picked up a m6 flashlight with laser just for show and only cost me 40 bucks. im gonna pick up a SIR front guard today and some bits and piece.

i see fully loaded vests selling for 40 bucks. those airsoft stuff are just dirt cheap around here.

It's the real thing.. eh.. Some talk above in this post about it. The custom stock drop is what makes this marker for me.

I've got a new FPS video up with this marker...

Youtube link here

I also made a topic I'll update with all future videos:
The one and only CatharsisEGR video thread

Regarding a new barrel I finally decided on the Deadly Wind Fibur CF barrel w/ SS Freak kit. So far it has been treating me well. I played another Blackcat scenario and the "shady" producer made us pay through the nose for this crap absolutely no name paint that fell through my .682 insert (smallest SS Freak insert). Still shot ok, but bah on shady scenario producers! ;P

I am completely in love with that EOTech sight. If they weren't so much I'd buy one right now...

Does it have to be an EOTech, there are lookalikes and they cost way less than the Real Deal
