Special Ops Dogleg Stock For A5

Review of Special Ops Paintball Dogleg A5 Stock.

Posted Image

The objective of the Dogleg Stock(which we will call DLS) is to give the shooter a stable weapons platform while allowing the use of a mask without adding a sight rail. The way it achieves this is by adding a curve in the middle of the DLS, thus allowing the shooters head/mask to fit inside. (SEE PIC BELOW)

Posted Image

The DLS comes with the standard stock installation ports for the A5. The problem I have found is that it is too large for the rear-end of the A5, so for it to fit you must apply a large amount of pressure during installation. This is only a problem that will take 10 seconds out of your time to fix, but, it is still a problem, albeit minor. (SEE PIC BELOW)

Posted Image

The DLS comes with a large rubber shoulder pad on the rear end of the stock. This is hard rubber and will not feel comfortable the first time you put it to your shoulder, but after that it feels great. (SEE PIC BELOW)

Posted Image

The DLS also comes with the Special Ops Logo, of course, in neon green. It isnt enought to give away your position, but if you are serious about concealment you may want to remove it. I like the look of it. (SEE PIC BELOW)

Posted Image

Overall, I rate this stock as an 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 {8} 9 10. The DLS looks strange, but it works, and it works well. This is truly a "mod that makes sense" and I reccomend it to anyone and everyone. If you have an A5 this stock is a must. Good job SpecOps!

Nice review I've been looking at getting one for my new A-5.

the only note i would like to add on this is the fact of it making shooting off-handed very difficult. The bend in the stock makes it nearly impossible to fire your marker with good form from the wrong side. Otherwise this is a great stock and a very unique idea.

KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN, MINDS CLEAR, AND GUNS ON POINT!!!!

This is a valid point... but personally running remote it's a pain to shoot offhand anyway. I always try to avoid that entirely and pop around the other side.

You know it does look odd but I'll take functionality over looks anyday. When your out on the field, I don't think many people are scoping in on your gun to look at it, there scoping in on your head, to kill you. Go with this mod if you want something that really works. Thanks for the review, good job. peace

I actually think it looks cool, and is for whatever reason intimidating, I'm totally getting one when I get my A-5.

I would also like to chime back into this thread. I got my dogleg (complete kit, no EZ crap for me...) and was able to play with it last sunday. It worked great, definately A+. It can take a beating too... I supermaned into a bunker, and my gun slammed grip first on the ground with the stock on my shoulder. My shoulder is still bruised (from sunday) and hurts like a FEMALE DOG, but the stock doesn't have a scratch. It performed perfectly all day, with no hiccups.

Also on the installation, it takes pretty long, but it's not hard, and it's pretty straightforward, as long as you measure twice for the macro :ph34r:

Definately reccomend.

I love the concept of the stock because I'm a lefty, but the pictures make it look like there isn't a lot of room to get your head in there quickly. Do you find that you sometimes bump your head when you're bringing the gun up to aim quickly?

Can you crane your neck into it while you shoot off-handed?

I'm a lefty too, that's why I got mine. It's AWESOME for us lefteye's. You other right eye's don't know how terrible it is to have the A-5 hopper jetting out the right side of your marker right in front of your face for us leftys,.. it really sucks.

I also think sights and scopes on paintball guns are a bit much and I've always wanted to use the standard sights on the A-5. But as you've probably found out it's nearly impossible without the dogleg. I've played many games, and 2 all day senarios with my dog-leg, and I still love it! I have one of the largest heads in the world I think. I have to cut any flex-fit baseball cap just to fit on my oversized noggin. Well point being if my big ass head can fit in there without ever hitting my gun, then you shouldn't worry about it.

Just got my dogleg a couple hours ago in the mail...and I must say that any concerns I had about it are gone. It does take a fair amount of pressure to install, but that in turn contributes to the solid feel. No wobble at all. I was worried it might offset the weight of the gun to one side, but it doesn't. Tried it with a mask on, and not only can you sight right down the center of the gun, but (for me, at least) it helps you keep your elbows in. I kinda just instinctively tucked them in every time I sighted on the gun. I can't WAIT to get into the field and give it a real test, but from what I can see now, EXCELLENT product and idea!
