So I just got my EMC Kit and am very pleased with how well constructed and robust it feels.

However, I can't decide if I want to add a stock to it or not. The only reason I want to add the stock is to make it look more tacticool.

The weight of the tank attached to the marker really doesn't bother me since I usually play speedball. I just don't like the fact that I might have to run a remote coil to the marker since it might make switching hands a bit more uncomfortable.

So I guess my real question is... How comfortable does running a coil to the marker feels? Does it feel comfortable when switching hands and shooting?

Switching hands with a remote may feel a bit awkward at first, but I've never found it to affect me on the field.

I like stocks that come off the bottom of the grip frame. The problem I have with the ones that come off the back is that when you put your head down to shoot, the goggles hit it.

It is all personal preference. I used to run stock years ago with the tank on gun. Here is a link to the one I used. http://www.lapcopain...?products_id=77

I use a stock with my G-1 all the time and I like it. It's good for longer games, and Big Games, because I run a sling on it and can have it hanging off of me with no issues with the tank or remote. I use a Cobra Koil remote line so its an easy push of a button to disconnect the remote and then just slip it back on when I go back in.

If you can(comfortably)extend the stock so it is longer than the tank,then using it with the tank on the gun should be no problem.But I wouldn't suggest using a remote for speedball.It may be comfortable switching from side to side in woodsball,but you will probably be switching sides twice as much in speedball.

Just shoulder the tank, Never have had a problem with doing so, and i have seen so many people have issues with remote lines, so before you go and use it make sure to test it and make sure it works.

I really do not prefer a stock. Just shoulder a bottomline setup instead.
