It can be flipped 180 degrees onto the right hand side of a blaster. However, it is too long for young Nerfers to use it well with most other blasters. When pressure is applied to this stock, it tends to flex from the strain, so when using this stock minimal pressure should be applied.
Although usable on other blasters, this is clearly designed specifically for the Spectre due to the concave indention on the left side of the unfolded stock that fits perfectly to the Spectre's revolving barrel.
The Spectre shoulder stock comes in the following color schemes:
- N-Strike (yellow, black, gray, and orange)
- N-Strike Elite (blue, black, gray, white, and orange)
- Alpha Trooper CS-6 Mission Kit (orange, black, and gray)
- The Spectre shoulder stock is the longest stock attachment.
- The Flip Clip attachment can clip on to the end of the stock. It is not likely intentional, as it is a rather loose fit. It can be used to hold an extra clip, but this will cause the end of the stock to be blocked, making it uncomfortable on the user's shoulder.
- Although it comes with a Spectre, a blaster advertised on the box as a stealth blaster, the stock is rather noisy when carrying it in the folded position.
- To better "lock" the folding hinge in place, one can let super glue dry on the on the pieces, (making sure it does not touch anything) so that when dry it fits tighter into the hinge.
- Unlike the Elite Spectre which does have the Elite logo in the grip, the Elite version of this stock comes with the N-Strike logo, not the N-Strike Elite logo.
- When this stock is mounted on any flat-sided blaster (like the Stryfe) and folded, left-handed users can use the end of the stock as a foregrip. While not the most sturdy or comfortable of foregrips, it does help steady shots.
