X-chamber can only do so much
Review: It works and gets the job done. There really isn't much when it comes to x chambers. They all work about the same.
Construction on it is not bad but the finish on there is piss poor. It chips if you scratch it with a nail hard enough. Its not anodizing. More like a thin coat of spray paint.
Tippmann really ought to revise this kit a bit. Good idea, bad plan.

Installation was pretty easy. Took less than 30min while taking my time.

Its just so ugly and when the finish chips, its even uglier. It solves the problem with liquid co2 but does nothing with consistency and velo spikes.

You are probrably looking at this review because you are looking make your Co2 A5 work a bit better. That means you are somewhat serious about getting into the sport.
If so, get an anti-syhpon, and save the rest for a reg. (a good one) Both my markers, CO2 or HPA, depends on it.

Conclusion: If an x-chamber is all you need, get it. But you are wiling to pay a little more for a hose and two fittings, go with the ACI Sub Zero or Lapco. Its a better made and looking product.
If you can , save up another $50 or so and get the Palmer. That's one product you will not regret.
