22 December 2007 - 07:04 PMhey i was wondering if anyone had the jcs wire stock with the rva and how good it was. i want to get that or either the jcs combat stock. i want to wire stock because it seems lighter than the combat stock, but is it still sturdy?
so any input on this would be awesome.
I own the JCS stock with a stainless steel "wire" and a shoulder plate like this (not my picture):
I've found it to be sturdy enough to shoot from, but I can bend it some if I try really hard. I expect it would only be a problem if I fell on it or something. Mine has a slight wobble where the RVA inserts into the rear of the A5 (a common problem with JCS RVA-based stocks), but there are some easy mods you can do to remove that.
The shoulder plate is a piece of Aluminum. It's not the most comfortable thing in the world, but serviceable. Some padding would be nice.
The biggest disappointment I have with it is that it doesn't look real great when folded. This is because it doesn't do a full 180, but rather something more like 165. The shoulder plate ends up mostly behind the cyclone, but it would look nicer if it was flush with the side of the body. Judging by the construction of the hinge, I'd guess that all JCS stocks do this, though I can't confirm that.
I'm currently not using mine as I've found it a bit too long to use comfortably (I'm 5'6"). The construction is such that you can make the stock shorter by unscrewing the "wire" from its mounting point, cutting it down to shorten it, and reattaching it. I can say that the "body" of the stock is extremely tough, as I'm having a very hard time cutting it down a few inches. However, if you got the JCS combat stock, it's not really length-adjustable at all, mods or otherwise.
Overall, I'm not exactly disappointed with my purchase, but if I had it to do over again I would probably end up buying a different stock. This may be influenced by the fact that I have more money available now than I did at the time of purchase, and the stock was pretty reasonably priced compared to others out at the time.
I hope that helps!

Not recommended if you shoot quite a bit, as the A5 is a bit of a gas hog and the 3.5oz tank doesn't hold much. I shoot a hopper or less per game and usually fill it up between games.
An interesting approach for a longer game/heavier shooter would be to bring along multiple 3.5/4oz tanks in your pod pack along with your pods. Around 2 pods per tank is about right in good weather. You'll need more CO2 if you're playing in cold weather.
