I've got $30 of PVC that I never glued together, once I realized that you need to adjust your stock. Different guns, even in the same game, can have different places you need to hold them.
The PVC always fell apart without glue and it never held the Vice Wands well.
I have a Hyperkin Blaster and Vive Tracker, with a foam grip stuck in its barrel. This is pretty good for a submachine gun, but it can't be used in many games, and the trigger just feels really cheap.
I have a Cabela's TopShot Elite that can be hacked into some games and was used by a lot of hobbiests back when Oculus was just a Kickstarter. Pretty decent trigger, and feels like a very nice Nerf gun.
Until today, I thought that the only way to ever top the TopShot experience was going to be to fork over $600+ for one of the art-nouveau Vive tracker accessories like the PP Gun.
This Virtual Core Evolution is the perfect utilitarian tool. The sling holds it in place and is easy to release to do something else with your arm. Everything is in the right place, and if it isn't, you can put it in place. The adjustments to the thumbscrews can be made with your free-hand, while peeking under the HMD and comparing the view of your in-game stock to the position of your real stock.
It cannot be emphasized enough that you can find that your HMD gets in the way of positioning your head to where you can see down the sights.
If you have a static stock, you just have to get used to it and make do, or stop using the stock, or choose a different favorite weapon in the game. None of the PVC or controller modding stuff I did before yielded as good of a feeling or experience as holding a Vive Wand like a pistol.
At this point in time, nothing you can buy at a reasonable price is going to provide you better FFB than the Vive Wands or Oculus Touch controllers. Until that changes, Virtual Core's Evolution is going to be the best thing you can put those controllers into to make them feel like a real rifle with weight and heft.
Stocks in general are an amazing idea if you play FPS games - A must have in my opinion.
I am not rating on either of those things however - This stock is made with high quality material and the joints and everything seem very sturdy.
The issues i have are it takes a long time to customize between different guns (especially if you try to set up the cheek rest correctly) as each joint needs to be unscrewed moved and re-screwed individually.
also the connections to the steel rods are just using a clamping force and no matter how hard i try i cannot get it tight enough to not twist the stock into odd shapes during use.
Still a good budget stock, so i give 4 stars. Really, you get what you pay for..
EDIT: Without asking, Virtual Core sent me replacement joints as mine may have been defective. Best customer service i have seen in a long time.
In game it's great. Really feels natural and improves accuracy.
I haven't used it, but this does have a rail so you could put real attachments on this. Outside of a foregrip or bipod, I can't really think of what you would use. Maybe some kind of recoil simulator attachment if one is created.
On the middle metal piece, mine didn't have the metal threaded inserts. In the picture on the box it looked like it's supposed to have them. It didn't matter, I just ran the nut through the opposite piece it connects to which had the threaded inserts. Maybe that's intended, I'm not sure.
The sling is a bit small. I'm 6' and fit and it's fine, but if you're taller or a bit heavy set, it's going to be uncomfortable. You can replace the sling with your own.
Not a criticism of this stock, just something to be aware of. I have found with using this causes the headset cable to be really effing annoying. When you do more of a pistol stance, your arm's motion naturally moves the cable out of the way if it falls infront of you. With a rifle stock, your arm stays close in so the cable has a tendency to stay draped in front of you. It's not a flaw with the stock and the real solution is to be wireless. But it's stupid annoying.
One other recommendation if you like shooters, as dorky as you'll look, pick up some kneepads.
To be super nit-picky, the included strap isn't very comfortable so you might want to buy some padding so the strap doesn't dig into your neck. This also doesn't come with a tripod. Some of the pictures show a tripod but it isn't included.
