I'm sorry if you misunderstood. Air-thru capabilities means simply there is an air hose running to the end of the stock. This is for remote use. There is a possibility modifications could be performed allowing the tank to be mounted "inside the stock", but I am unsure of the extent of modification required. You could get the regular version and mount your tank on gun, or perhaps get a vertical mount for the tank. There are several options out there, you just have to search a little to find the ones right for you.
Thanks for clearing that up. Just glancing at the pic, it looked like the tank would rest inside which you'd think would be an option but hell..I still havent decided on my first marker so what do I know?
What type of paintball do you play or are interested in playing? I'm guessing if you're looking at stocks then woodsball/scenario is your style of play. With that in mind, I would say a Tippmann would be your best bet. link There are several options, a few of them are; the 98 custom, the A-5, the X7, and the new Alpha Black. Good luck choosing a marker. Any more questions feel free to ask.
Well we're gonna play woodsball. I'm 28 and my friends are a couple years older and there isnt a place in Arkansas (that I know of) for speedball. I've been looking for a gun for about a week now, maybe longer. I'm definitely going with a tippmann. They just seem to be more reliable for the style we're gonna play. I also want a gun that I wont need to upgrade much in the beginning. I was pretty much sold on the A-5 but with everything I want, I'm looking at $300.00+ anyways so I've recently started reading on X-7. Keep in mind I've never paintballed before and getting info on the web is a catch 22 due to conflicting opinions on everything.
As it stands now. I have about 2 weeks before our first skirmish (which I dont have to play but would like to) so I'm trying not to rush things. I like to know as much about the product as possible. So far, I'm kinda leaning towards this package.
Tactical Car Stock-
the jj ceramic is a good barrel, dont waste your time with a laser sight unless you want it purely for looks. it will be completely useless to yry to aim with it because paintballs do not fly in straight lines. also, some people are for the lp kit and some against. i dont see a need for it, but again, its your marker, and you're free to do what suits you best.
E-grips are nice, go with that. the low-pressure kit, works best with HPA/Nitro. It is an expensive set-up, but over time will pay for itself. Since your gun will use a lower system pressure that means less recoil, more control, better accuaracy, and a sound reduction. You really should use an RVA or spring kit with this set-up to further increase your efficiency. If set-up correctly, you will very likely be able to shoot almost a full case of paint out of a 68ci 5000psi tank. The marker has much less recoil and drop off has been reduced so long strings of paint stay on target.
Here's my recommended set-up, a low-pressure kit, a 68/4500 nitro tank, a good secondary regulator (I like palmers), a low pressure gauge (the kit does not have one) so you can read the input pressure to the valve assembly.
Let us know how it works out. Good luck with your purchase.
