PPS Male vs. Female Stabs

What are the differences or advantages with the male or female stabs? Other than the obvious here? I found myself in possession of one of each this week. Not sure which to keep. It would go on a Blazer if that helps.

I like the male stabe as a vert foregrip on blazers, females for hurcs, painters, and old bottomline guns/backbottle conversions to bottomline.

Blazers dont need two stabes except for antisiphon co2, the level arrangement of the female stabe is a hindrance with non anti-siphon co2 in my experience.

Go with whichever rig you like the best. Assuming similar condition and age, there is no performance difference between the two designs.

Performance wise they are exactly the same. It's just a matter of how you want to mount them on your gun. The female requires a mounting bracket of some sort.

Well, I bought a used Blazer that came with " an under the grip bottle thing." I figured it was either an asa or maybe a drop forward. Well, it is a drop forward with a female stab on a weaver mount. I also got today a male stab. The female is older and has not markings on it. The male is basically brand new with the PPS logo on it.

Old Stabs are either the best, or they don't work at all. If it works, the advantage is that is will probably be "broken in" and very reliable if you use them at around the same settiing.

On the other hand, sometimes a stab is so broken in that you can't adjust it to a different setting. It will either refuse to budge or it will be wildly unreliable. In either event a re-build kit will bring it back to brand new instantly.

Depending on how old your female is, it might have only one threaded output hole, thus limiting use of a gauge. I never use them myself(gauges). Too springy.

Also, that Weaver scope ring rig is what PPS uses and sells for the females. There is also a block mount.

Which spelling is correct? That doesn't look right either way I type it.

Guage... gauge... GAG.

Stupid word.

It just depends what you want. Pump and backbottle guns usually would recieve a female stab from me. On the blazer, the male stab is the most common, one way to decide would be to put both up for sale and keep the one that doesnt sell first

Male stab is probably more valuable.
