AIM Swift, 15* asa, FreeFlow ram w/ qev's and valve, shocktech bolt and hammer and beavertail, tickler, E-blade, Bob Long torpedo, System X drop, Freak Set, Halo B, Kapp Cocking rod, PE 72/45
This is the best ram on the market by far, this thing t\is the greatest, i have an 02 cocker with an eclipse ram with their qev's and have this FF on my aim cocker with ff qev's and it makes the eclipse ram look so slow. this thing cycles gun much faster than any stock ram and also eclipse with qev's
Buy this ram, this is the only ram on the market worthy enough for a cocker with an eblade
Most people find that the Eclipse or Belsales 44 Magnum rams are just a little smoother than the SMC ram. This should lead to lower cocking pressure at the same cycle rate, or higher cycle rates at the same pressure. The simplest test to check which ram is the smoothest is to place the rams end to end, one ram held in each hand by the threaded end of the shaft, with the shaft extended on each. With the rams held horizontally, press the shafts of each ram inwards. The ram which closes first, is the smoothest ram. In my own experience, the Belsales 44 Mag will be smoother. By testing the rams on the marker, you are not so much testing the ram, as the components that are attached to it. The AIM body is probably honed better the Stock 2K2, and probably has lighter/smoother components fitted. I would really not expect much difference between the SMC and the Eclipse rams, and would expect any little difference to be in favour of the Eclipse.
It may also be worth while checking to see that the QEVs on the Eclipse ram are working correctly, which will make a big difference to the speed. One of my QEVs regularly gets blocked on my 44 Mag ram, making it a lot slower until I unjam the QEV (I should really replace it entirely, but I keep fixing it instead).
