Sucks on a stock gun, but not the frame's fault.
Well, I got my frame from the local pro-shop (Bastion Paintball). Brandon the owner had gone down the the cup and picked the frame up for me. The second I got it home I aired it up and started to rip. DAMN the thing was fast...a little too fast...I walked down to my buddies house and told him to come test it with me. So we popped the sucker into training mode and started ripping it. He noticed it was going too fast too. It was only maxing out at 9 bps (factory slow settings and on a pretty much bone stock 2k4.) but it didn't feel like we we're pulling the trigger that much. Thats when we got the idea to test it for bounce...holy crap. I got the thing doing full auto 9...without my finger on the trigger. Needless to say I was horribly dissapointed. I'd read all these reviews about 'NO BOUNCE AT ALL!' and 'THE TT IS AWESOME!' but as far as I'd seen, it was just another cheap a$$ bouncy electro. Well, that was until I read the manual ;). After doing some reading and taking the gun to my shop class the next day, I adjusted the TT filters and took the gun back home.
No bounce :)
NOW, for the first field test. This occured at the compound in Duncan. Took the baby out there with the TT's and everything adjusted, gun ready to rip. Then, for the hell of it, I decided to set the gun up for factory fast and 50% tolerance, just to see what it would do. BAD IDEA FOR A STOCK 2k4. Two words, SHOOT DOWN. Two shots would make it out of the barrel on an 11bps string and then next 9 or so would get halfway down the barrel and then BREAK! But when I wasn't shooting over 5-6 bps the stock reg held up fine. So basically the only problem this frame has, is that it's too good for my current set up :P.
I've now had about 2000 dollars more invested in my gun, and it rips harder and faster than any gun I've ever seen. The only thing that can keep up is my friend's DM4, and thats only when he's ramping. Once I get an mQ valve in my gun, nothing will match it.
All in all, this thing is the best. Eyes for detection and no chops, electronic timing for reliability, elmination of shortstroking and speed, and great features make this a great, well rounded frame perfect in all aspects. I just can't wait to see what my gun will do with about 500-700 more invested in it :D
