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.

True. But if you have on gun air it is added weight.

Its mostly a preference issue, and stocks seem to feel better on certain guns. I love the stock on my 98, but could never see myself having one on my pirhana. It will usually also feel more comfortable if you are used to shooting real rifles that have stocks.

Is there a difference inbetween a 40$ stock and a 120$ stock?



just make sure the $40 one wont brake after some abuse. also, make sure you can still see dont your sight if you dont have a rail, aiming always helps, especially when your trying to hit something.

It depends on how you've learned to shoot guns. If you've been playing with your tank on gun, maybe on a drop forward, and just kind of cradling it when you fire, then a stock might feel a little weird. And I will admit that keeping your air on-gun with a good drop forward makes for a more compact design. It will be overall heavier, but can be more workable in tighter spaces. Basically, you don't want to have to teach yourself how to shoot all over again.

I grew up with real firearms so the only thing I ever fired without a shoulder stock were pistols and a sawed-off shotgun. To me, it feels natural. Even when using my tank as a stock, I didn't like the back heavy feel, it just wasn't right. Getting an air-through type stock and running a remote line for the tank gets a marker closer to the balance of actual firearms, though with a full hopper you'll still be a touch muzzle-heavy. I've tried a few folding stocks, but they all felt a little flimsy to me. Again, that's just because I was used to a good, solid stock, your mileage will vary.

As for price, the cheaper ones generally were a little lighter and flimsier to me, or they just felt odd in my shoulder crease.

My advice is the same as echoed across the forum, try one out and see how it feels. See if you can borrow another player's marker for a game or two. These are just my opinions from my limited experience for you to consider in your shopping.

A stock is useful if you have a remote coil to go along with it.
