Good idea although it's been tried quite a few times before. As you can see there's no sticky and unless this one is stickied it's more or less useless.

stock class guns arent JUST pump guns, they can't have more than a 10 ball capacity if it has a vertical feed or a 15 ball if its horizontal feed.

There have been other tries at this topic, with even more of a list, they die out. It's a waste of time.

That is not stock class legal. It's no more than 20 balls parallel to the barrel. Also they have to use 12grams.

Well not entirely. There are more official "guidelines" but it varies. Most people just consider rocking and cocking with 12 grams to be stock class.
