What Are Airsoft Stocks?
A stock is the part of a gun that you hold against your shoulder, it helps the airsoft player aim the gun and have good stability keeping them on target. Today there are many different types of buttstock. Depending on the type of rifle used or the preference of the shooter, there are various stocks for different playstyles. Some stocks now contain unique features such as battery compartments, rails for attachments, bipods, raised cheek rests
and sling mounts.
What Types Of Stock Do You Sell?
At Airsoft Deals, we sell a wide range of gun stocks to suit every player’s needs. Below we will talk about each type of rifle stock we have available:
Folding stocks are not a relatively new concept, being seen in the likes of AK stock and g36 stocks. They have become more popular with guns that do not traditionally come with a folding stock, such as the m4 stock.Folding stocks allow easy storage of your airsoft gun and allow a longer rifle to be reduced in size, making it much easier to operate the rifle in CQB battles and in vehicles.
Pistol stocks are also not a new concept, there are many examples of gun stocks being used in real life. Modern pistol stocks are available, particularly the glock airsoft stock which aids the players stability while shooting.
Sniper stocks can be made of different materials, have the ability to attach rails and other attachments. As sniper stocks come with a sniper purchase, you would either be looking to upgrade your current stock or replace it.
A collapsible stock allows you to reduce or increase the length of the stock. This allows the airsoft player to adjust the length of the stock to suit their needs or environments. If you need to store your gun, you can reduce your stock length to save space.In CQB engagements, you can reduce your stock length to have an advantage over your enemies who are using a longer fixed stock. The added manoeuvrability will help you in tight and confined environments.
The opposite of collapsible stocks, a fixed airsoft stock is solid and does not move. This makes the stock feel for reliable and also does not require any prior setup. It’s commonly used in sniper or SBR setups.The fixed long stock means that you have to carry a large gun bag and makes it a bit harder to use in a vehicle, but is still a great sturdy stock to use.
There are many additional accessories to stocks, which include rails for attachments, a raised cheek rest for raised scopes, enhanced buttpads
, sling mounts and even compartments for batteries and other useful kit.
