Stock Class or Open Class? Which do you prefer?

get josh to run you a falcon barrel. then UPgrade your newbie walk on marker.
It would take a bit more than that... that gun is totally decked out, but you wouldn't know it just looking at it.
It's got a Lapco bolt and fluted hammer, a prototype "Leprechaun" valve from y0da900, and gets 40 shots at 280 fps average with zero drop-off at 650 psi through that PPS Stabilizer.
I'd have to make a new valve body to put that gas system on a Retro 7.
But that said...I think I'd definitely run the Retro 7 as a walk on gun. I'd just take the top tube off and run it like this. They were designed with real pistol ergonomics in mind, so I wouldn't want to ruin that with a stock!

Stock class with the first time players and other Stock class players.

It doesn't seem to have any advantage whatsoever over my automag.
However, stock class is a much lighter and tighter setup (even as MSC), a worthwhile tradeoff for the lack of firepower IMO.
This. If I'm going to have a hopper and a tank, might as well be a semi.
Stock class gives me a speed/stealth advantage, it just makes more sense to me. Unless you really just like the physical action of pumping a gun I don't see why not just use a mech and conserve ammo better, but have a little more firepower when needed.
