"Hello potential buyers of this stock,
I was on the fence about this stock for a really long time. Primary thing holding me back was the idea of having to modify the stock to make it work. Well, I had all the tools and guides ready, but turns out it was a PERFECT and I mean a PERFECT drop in. It was as if I was the person on Modelworks instructional video. Mag fit perfectly as well. No problems with feeding every shot from either of my mags I tested.
Maybe I was lucky or maybe its because I used the manufacturer specified base platform and it was within the tolerances. but either way, I am super happy with this stock!
Base: Tokyo Marui VSR-10 Sniper Pro
Mags tested: Original TM vsr-10 mag and Action Army 50rd mag
Two things to note:
1.) I did have some resistance the first time I screwed the back two cheek rest screws in (as noted by others), but that was gone once I went in and out twice.
2.) In regards to a person's post (I believe on Reddit) about the screws not being right. All my screws were perfect, but I did note that initially, my back receiver screw (the one that goes behind the trigger guard) appeared to be too short. There is a recessed portion for the screws to go into and once I pressed the screw into the recessed portion (very minimal force... pushed my allen key with maybe 2-3lbs of force?) it went flush against the inner recessed portion. Looking on my receiver, I saw that it was lined up and ready to thread into my upper receiver. Then it just thread like normal. I took the screw out and I don't see any scratches on the receiver where the screw was, so hope that helps.

Here is EVERYTHING you need to Know about the MODELWORK M40A3 Stock.
Short Review: THIS STOCK IS THE REAL DEAL. PERIOD.
This Stock is meant for the VSR-10 System and ONLY the VSR-10 for maximum compatibility. My suggestion: DO NOT BUY this if you do not own a Tokyo Marui VSR-10 PRO. Key word is the Tokyo Marui PRO. I do not have the G-spec. I am not speaking for the Gspec nor do I know if it fits better or worse than the PRO. I bought the Tokyo Marui pro and I received it this week and assembled the stock myself.
The Reason I bought the VSR-10 PRO: I was basically ignorant and thought that this version was new compared to the Gspec but it turns out both models are several years old, which by no means is a bad thing. I will have a review about the VSR-10 PRO but now we focus on this stock.
One thing you guys need to know. When you purchase your VSR-10 and disassemble it, be careful of the mag release button. It pops off very easily and good luck trying to find the spring. I lost mine but thankfully the stock comes WITH BOLTS and a SPRING for the mag release and stock assembly if you did extra bolts and a spring.
The Stock is no joke guys. This thing is heavy and durable. In a good way. The color looks great the cheek rest works, they give you the two big round cheek screws as well.I would suggest having tools handy because I had to buy a set of allen keys, but no big deal.
As for the assembly: This was a perfect drop in with the VSR-10 PRO. I had a little difficulty installing and aligning it at first but a key thing is the TIGHTNESS of the screws. I would suggest "tuning" the screws to find that sweet spot where all three CATEGORIES work out: the mag release WORKS, there is NO WOBBLE near the trigger guard, and there is also minimum wobble in the barrel front.
I am a novice but I was able to take apart my Tokyo Marui, install this as a drop into the stock without any hassle or drilling or any modifications. The only thing I may look into is the screw that is closest to the tip of the barrel underneath the stock. This screw controls barrel wobble in the front. If you tighten it down good, there is no wobble AT ALL however, the bolt action wont cycle, it gets stuck. So I loosened it up until the bolt was smooth and effortless. There is very little wobble however, I think there are ways to play around with it to make it better for you perfectionists out there. I just did not spend too much time on it because it is solid as a rock as it is.
My main concerns were with the mag wells. I was extremely optimistic buying this thing because of the downside of potentially modifying the stock. If that was the case I would have returned this stock and gone through the typical airsoft customer service that we all know is so much fun. The great thing about this stock is that the mag well fits PERFECT with the mags. When I first assembled it, the first mag I put in got stuck, but like I said. Don't panic, it's just the screw adjustments. Make sure you adjust the screws and tune them and you will have the perfect magazines. I mean so perfect that when you press the mag release, the magazines spring out into your hand without you having to pull them out, its that awesome.
I did get worried when I put the first magazine in so I took it apart and reassembled the stock and started to sand down one of the magazines with a screwdriver but ended up basically scratching it. However, sanding down the magazine IS a viable option if you are having trouble. But the magazine well is engineered well so you will not have to do any modifications to it what so ever.
Lastly, remember to purchase a Tokyo marui pro. It is virtually no different than the Gspec. I built my M40a3 custom. I bought the VSR-10 PRO and took off the front and rear iron sights effortlessly, installed a rail as well as a scope, and then the stock. If you are going to buy this stock for an average or cheap gun, I would not recommend this. I mean. the stock its-self costs almost as much as the gun I paid for. So, this stock is for someone who loves the M40 look and wanted to put their vsr-10 to the next level.
Overall, this stock is amazing. I wanted to spend the extra money and build my own airsoft sniper. I was not convinced with any standard and proline edition M40A3 snipers on the market and was not interested in the M40a5 look either. So I bought my own Tokyo Marui VSR-10, the M40a3 Stock, some upgraded internals and a mock suppressor and now I have my own custom Build Tokyo Marui M40a3 (VSR-10 Pro Edition)
Hope this helps guys, I know some of you base your purchases off reviews. That's the person I am when it comes to airsoft because I know how finicky this sport can be when it comes to reliability and quality.
One thing I am not sure of because I did no purchase Either of the two:
I know that you can install a bipod to this stock, however, I am not sure if you can install both a bipod and a sling. This could simply be my ignorance, I have not looked into this personally. I am pretty sure you can attach a sling but if you wanted them both thats something I will look into and update this review If I am able to in the near future. Good luck guys, hope this helps! cheers!
"Just got this today. I love it. I will put pros and cons for you to decide if you want this or not but i will say it is well worth the money. Fits near perfect with the JG Bar 10. I say near perfect because there is a little area on the back of the receiver where the screw the stock came with was not long enough to reach but that is ok the other screws it came with holds the upper assembly sturdy and secure. The other issue is you will need to sand down the mag well just a bit for the magazine to fit.
Easy to put together
Heavier than the plastic stock
No rear sling stud
