<Sch> Raven Sunday, October 31st, 2004
Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month23 of 26 people found this review helpful.

More than 5 years
Products Used:
E-Cockers, Mags, IR3
Marker Setup: Raven Primal
14" Teardrop
32 Degrees Flames Drop
68/3000 ACI Bulldog N2
Like any intermediate level marker a new barrel is a must, microline, new ASA, a bolt too
Strengths: Good Regulator, 1 year warrenty, delrin bolt, break beam eyes, fast
Weaknesses: Stock barrel, angled drop forward
Review: Regulator: It's a fairly consitant reg, Although aftermarket products are usually an improvement.

Warrenty: One year is pretty good, all things that will gop wrong will hapeen in the first months of use.

Delrin Bolt: I honestly expected Kingman to put in a cheap metal bolt... they actually suprised me for once.

Break Beam Eyes: If you are planning on shooting fast YOU NEED THIS!!! Whatever they say about anti chop bolt is total bull****. I have choped shot before with that stock bolt.

Fast: Fast means fast enough so you won't have to worry about out shooting the marker. be honest, how often do you shoot consitantly beyond 22 bps?

Spring Return Bolt: Yea, that's right, there isn't a return ram to re-cock the marker, I could see the spring wearing down an needing to be replaced, hopefully by then they'll have an air return kit out.

Remember to oil your marker before using it! Some companies don't oil their markers in the factory before sending them out!

Updated Information:
You can use CO2 on the Primal. But liquid CO2 CAN and WILL screw up the solenoid! so use N2 ONLY!
Conclusion: I'd reccomend this to anyone who can tinker with their markers a bit, So intermediate players would be looking for somehting like this. For beginners this is out of your price range so get a cheap spyder and upgrade. And, obviosly, advanced players have already made up their minds and know what they like.

I give it a 10 because in the month I've had it it hasn't failed me. I'll be sure to update this review if I find any problems.

Are they duel break beam eyes, or are there only one?

break beam eyes means there are 2 eyes
if it had only one eye sensor then it would be a reflective eye

no only one eye and one light is how a break beam works not two eyes and no light

You can run the Primal off of co2 as long as it's anti-siphoned.

I would not do that anyway, even anti-siphoned air can cause damge to your solinoid

BEghost Saturday, May 7th, 2005 | 11:20 am PST
does the eye even do that much anyway??? and what is solinoid?

Tabris17 Tuesday, May 17th, 2005 | 8:59 pm PST
The eyes prevent double feeding and reduce chopping. I chopped one ball out of a thousand with the eyes off and even then I was fooling around with the full auto. And the solinoid is a special valve that smart parts helped create, that is if I recall the article correctly, a seven stage valve that is smaller and more consistant then the older air valves that were used in paintball guns and anthing else with pneumatics. It basically controls the air flow through the gun and makes it more consistance.
Nothing really major but it helps the flow of the gun. And CO2 warps it and basically ruins it. Not a part you want to mess up. Just save up and get the N2 and you'll save yourself money and alot of trouble if you use CO2.
That and it says IN THE MANUAL that using CO2 WILL VOID the WARRANTY. Just don't use CO2 on period and shoot yourself if you even think about using CO2.

Uh, actually, a solenoid isnt a special valve, a solenoid is a coild with a metal rod in the center. when a current is sent through the coil, it causes the rod to shoot one way, when its stopped, it relaxes. On piranhas, the solenoid shoots up and knocks the sear free of the striker. I could be wrong, but thats what ive read, that its not a seven stage sumtin or other.
