Upgrades:
Medium bore barrel i.e. Lapco Bigshot, Dye excel, CP one piece.
Strengths: Air efficiency, closed bolt operation(no kickback), designed for co2, price is affordable for beginners.
Weaknesses: Compact hinge frame, large bore barrel, fade just a line between black/red.
Review: OK, called WGP and asked them about running co2. The Trilogy line was designed for co2. I took mine out to the field and the marker did what it was supposed to do. For example, we were defending a castle of about 50 on 50 and a player ran in to bunker us. As he ran in, I quickly without hesitation, popped off 3 rounds. Without any kickback from the gun and no malfunctions, the marker performed well. I believe cocker's are much better performers than stack tube blowback's. The only hesitation I think most beginners will have is the timing/pneumatics which WGP made easier with the Trilogy series. Only one grudge, I didnt realize the compact frame was so compact, lol I have to use my midde finger to fire(6-8bps) but thats fine with me considering I dont waste paint. The barrel is large bore some where around .690(pmi premium just caught friction) and I was told when I called WGP, the tech said the trilogy series runs about +/- 10fps on co2 and anti-siphoned will run better considering decent paint of course(pmi premium was asked).

There you have it, no bashing, no glory just a review.

For the price though, get the pro, I should've. It has the full size hinge frame and 2 piece barrel for $40 more.

Update 5/1/05

Tri-comp with full hinge, warped dark delrin bolt, and powerlyte scepter kit. I had the lug lowered a bit to reduce short stroking(I was double and triple feeding when I first got the marker and couldn't figure out why only to find out the lug was sitting hi and not catching the bolt.) And now thinking back and for the price I am glad I purchased it. My preference was for an economical marker that was consistent, efficient, and accurate. And with the minor upgrades, I couldnt be happier. I now just show up at the field, slap on my Ricochet 2kx, tank and chrono for a few shots and play!!! 7-8 Bps and +/- 8 with A/S co2 with powerlyte kit, what more can you ask for the price you invest.
Conclusion: Great gun for those who are intermediate rec players that are tired of upgrading their stack tubed blowback markers or tired of using a flatline tippmann.

ive only shot the gun (bought one, havent got yet) but yea dont worry about the timing. i think the video shows you anyways. i think "timing" is just making sure you pull and release the trigger all the way or you chop.

timing isn't an issue with this cocker. i use it alot, and it propbably isn't perfectly timed, but i don't really notice.
