Review: I received this marker for X-mas and was anxious to use it...

At the first 3 man tourney near where I live, I scrapped a team together and got prepared. Before the tourney I shot the gun for the first time. Gassed it up... no probs... shot some slow lasers... no probs... dissembled the gun... no probs... Almost flawless thus far.

The first game began for us and we rolled... I had 2 eliminations... one off the break the gun rolled paint onto the snake runner... and later a snap shooting KO from almost 35 feet to the back corner... SNAP SHOOTING = Simple The regulator angle allows a more comfortable arm extension and lessens your profile. The gun is light, as far as cockers go, and was easily zipped out and in for snapping.

LEGENDARY COCKER ACCURACY, the 2 piece barrel also outperformed a SP Teardrop, Lapco Bigshot, and even a FREAK barrel kit during my at home testing with an Impulse and the System X cocker (less than 2 foot groupings for all w/ Draxxus Hellfire paint).

The Trilogy was amazingly gas efficient... pulling almost 1000 shots froma 20oz and over 1200 from the 68ci / 3000 tank. The bolt format and porting reduces the cocker to click-swoosh-clack sound of the back block and bolt movement. People underestimate the $240 cocker and end up with a laser to the goggles.

If you haven't shot a cocker before, you will probably experience some chopping until you learn the trigger pull for one. After you get your strikes down, this thing can fire as fast as the hopper and pneumatics allow. In bursts, around 14 bps.

The front block is internally compounded, which makes for a smaller profile and easier hose replacement/cleaning. The instruction manual is descriptive and comes with a DVD angled toward newbs but has critical information for autococker upkeep.

The anodizing is sleek and shiny, which allows for some sticker additions, but it shows scratches easy. The milling isn't too flashy, but it makes for a much sleeker, smaller feel. The trigger has a millimeter side-to-side play (i dont mind). Regulator is farely consistent +- 9 fps at max on CO2. BTW the gun CAN OPERATE ON CO2, just, obviously, not as consistently... duh...

I love this thing... I use it over the impy for its consistancy and ease of maintanence. Great step up marker!
Conclusion: Just to clear some things up... the WGP Trilogy Pro Autococker is more upgradeable than people give it credit for. Possible upgrades below:
-Pump Rod
-Cocking Rod
-Bolt
-Regulator
-Bottomline
-Back Block
-Hoses
-Feed Neck (careful with the threads there tho)
-Trigger
-Grips
-Ram (doesn't fit the same but can work)
-Sights

No the E-blade doesn't fit... yet... hehe... but hey, for a mechanical cocker... after the learning curve is past... lasers... ropes of paint... one shot killers... no prob... 10
Rating:
10 out of 10

I get over a thousand shots on my pIranha. Nearly 1000 shots on a 20 oz tank is not very good.

I agree. It's nothing amazing. On the other hand, gas efficiencty really isn't that important in my mind. Gas is cheep. It's paint that kills you.

Just to clear some things up... the WGP Trilogy Pro Autococker is more upgradeable than people give it credit for. Possible upgrades below:
-Pump Rod < why? no performance increase>
-Cocking Rod < looks, no performance gained>
-Bolt <yes, one of the few useful ups >
-Regulator < another of the the few useful ups >
-Bottomline <no point, just looks>
-Back Block <again no point, it doesnt cycle fast enough to need a lighter back block>
-Hoses <looks ONLY, absolute no performance increase>
-Feed Neck (careful with the threads there tho) <not real important...but i guess its a bell or whistle>
-Trigger <no, i dont believe you can>
-Grips <yeah, make it comfy>
-Ram (doesn't fit the same but can work) <too much work and its still mech, no need>
-Sights <why?>

How the hell do you change the feed neck on this thing?

Probably a strap wrench will take it off, they usually loc-tight them on.

And there is an E2 adapter out, you can now makee your Trilogy electronic.
