What is Stock Class?
Stock-Class is a unique playing style of paintball that requires different tactics and skills. The markers used have to abide by the rules of stock-class play which include: 1) must be pump-action 2) cannot hold more than 20 paintballs at a time 3) must be powered by 12-gram CO2 powerlets 4) magazine tube must be parallel to the barrel for the "Rock and Cock" effect. If you don't like the paint-guzzling style of play and are up to a challenge, stock-class is for you.
In today's world of rapid fire Paintball, Stock class has expanded to include
pumps of many varieties. Finding true Stock Class equipment is difficult. As a
result, there has been much confusion as to what is "really " stock class. We
embrace all types of pump play and have included the later varieties of
equipment under our umbrella.
True stock class- horizontal feed tube, powered by 12 grams, no ball gates,
check valves, auto triggers.
Modified Stock Class- Allows auto-triggers, and either a constant air tank OR
a hopper (not both)
Super Stock- Allows constant air and a hopper, as well as check valves, auto
triggers, and other modifications.
Open class- Pneumatic assist guns, anything goes, so long as you have to pump
it to shoot.
