Interesting stock

Paintball to airsoft (people realized that HPA would make a great airsoft propellent) ... and now maybe some of us can use this cool stock:

Pre-Order Estimated Arrival: 04/2014 --- Redline AirStock Air System Kit for PolarStar Fusion Engines / HPA Systems, Pre-order / Preview - Evike.com Airsoft Superstore

I'm sure there is a way to adjust or swap out the reg for higher input if needed. But 300 psi might be okay for some E-guns if the flow is high enough.

Why didn't they make the stock line up with the tank?



Honestly I think the only part I need from this is the AR buffer tube threaded ASA:

I already have a Gibbz Paintball X7-to-AR stock adapter, so with an AR folding stock adapter and a 13ci buttstock plate I could have a side folding 13ci tank on my MKP-II.

Not sure what you mean. I think what you may be seeing is just the problem with photographing a subject at an angle with something like a 35mm lens. You get some perceived angles that just aren't there.

I bet if you look at it from the side that the stock and tank are parallel.

I was referring to the back end of the stock, where the tank juts out what appears to be about a half inch beyond the lower portion. That would not be very comfortable to shoulder. It seems like they should have put a rubber piece on the end.

It could just be the odd camera angle though.

Ok.. I see what you are talking about. No camera mirage there. I think that length may be adjustable and that you may be able to put a pad on there. But you also have to recognize the target market... they are anchoring their stock an the lower end of the butt rather than higher up. They could probably use a 22ci tank with the tank resting on the top of the shoulder with the lower portion of the butt still anchored tightly to the face of the shoulder.

It's a neat concept for sure. I'll be interested to see how it evolves.

Watching the polar star evolve from concept to reality has been pretty cool.

Mad Bull had come out with their own system a few years ago but for some reason it didn't take off. I think it was more affordable than Polar star's, but don't remember exactly.

cool stuff.

That would be cool to use the stock only, if it was half the length.

Probably easy to modify. Unscrew two machine screws. Cut rods. Hopefully they are tubes. thread inside if needed. screw back together.
