Does a stock realy help keep a steady aim or is it just another useless gadget?

What he said.
A stock smoothly lines your sights with your eyes and steadys your grip and aiming. You will find your accuracy greatly increases with a stock. This is one piece of equipment that is surely the OPPOSITE of useless. The only concern of some is the space it takes up. The solution to this is a foldable stock.

not usually if they're the same style. stocks are usually pretty simple- find a style that works for you, and get a quality version of it. One thing- I do recommend getting a stock that can get out of your way quick (I have a G36 folding stock)- stocks are great, but sometimes you wanna really get behind the gun (also, checkout the SO dogleg and A5A2 stocks-though they are very expensive)

Just make sure it doesn't block your sights. If you get one that's mounted too high, it'll keep you from using your sights because of the space it takes up and the fact that you're wearing a mask. In that regard, it can actually decrease performance, at least until you figure out how to line up the end of your barrel with your target. If you get one that give you plenty of mask clearance and you can use the sights right off the bat, you should find that it has no drawbacks.
Lead, follow, or get out of the way.

If you need a stock just use your tank. I dont think stocks are that useful, mainly because I just look down the barrel.

Are you agitating my dots? 10%

If im running my 92/4500 tank, then i go remote, and yes a stock helps. But any othertime i just use my tank on gun, and the tank works just fine as a stock. Even better actually, caue there is more surface area to grip your shoulder.

If you are running remote, a stock can be helpful, can....if you arent, dont bother, just use the tank.

When/ if you buy a stock make sure it is sturdy and doesnt wobble around on your gun. I own a generic combat stock and it is very sturdy i love stocks but i made a bad investment because i cant use my sights now, the stock gets in the way and it takes a little work to get it off the gun for cleaning.

I just use my nitro bottle as a stock. IMO they are only worth it if you run your setup remote and are a layed back player. Im a dagger, so I just keep my gun stricly performance so its light and manueverable.

A stock is usefull as long as you can see down the barrle of your marker to aim. I couldnt do that on my 98 custom, even with the flatline shroud thing on it. I now just run air on gun and use my 68/45 as a stock.
