Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month5 of 5 people found this review helpful.

4 years
Products Used:
Cranks such as these are found in gun shows for mounting on rifles.
Marker Setup: -= Tippmann A5 =- (Rugged, dependable marker)
-=Flatline barrell=- (I still think its magic)
-=Palmer stabilizer=- (best stabilizer)
-=Fire storm crank=- ( Used with telescoping bi pod when needed)
-=Double trigger=- (finger fits under the crank for accurate firing)
-=Low profile cap=- (like a 30 rd hopper- conserves paint)
-=7x zoom scope with 4" eye relief=- (Spot the enemy, then close on them)
-=Stock hopper, stock grip, stock bolt, etc=-
Strengths: rapid firepower
Weaknesses: plastic carving. Initial setup requires shaving of the trigger and or the firestorm crank.
Review: the device works fine once installed.
crank can be turned accidentally very easily, which is a safety hazard, and you waste
alot of time taking off the device, or just the arm. but I fear that the plastic will start to wear out. thou it hasnt yet done so.
the crank is great for big scenario games. combined with the flatline, you have a very
effective mortar system.
there is no easy way to store the crank. but at least it doesnt fall apart, its one solid unit.
for now I just toss it in the box, and hope it doesnt get screwed up.
For 30 dollars its alot cheaper than the egrip, or responce.

A double trigger lets you use either the crank or the bottom trigger.

I threw down a 10, because it stands alone in the market.
and has no serious faults as of yet.
Conclusion: If you spot a cheap 'used' crank on ebay be sure to question the condition of the mounting threads. not the best investment, nor a mandatory one, but it sure is a cheap price for such a powerfull option in a scenario game.
10 out of 10
