One of the largest mistakes made in terms of gun placement for firing is the extreme drop forwards that players put on their markers (of course player preference takes precedence). Conversely, this had sparked the new trend of not dropping tanks at all but instead opting to rail them. This too may be inappropriate depending on the player and tank. Using a MacDev Conquest 45/4500 on my speed made my speed so compact I was having difficulty shouldering it. Not wanting to really drop it ( since I didn't want to add height) and only wanting to lengthen it, my searches have led me to the CP MicroDrop.
This drop is excellent. CP has been making quality paintball products for years and this one is no different. CP is definitely one of the most unappreciated companies making durable, high quality products today. This drop is only about 1/4" taller than a standard rail if not less (this is a guesstimate). Length wise it is 3 1/2" long, with the final inch being dovetail, allowing for ample adjustment. The dove tail is precision milled allowing a very snug fit into the receiver giving a sense of impeccable quality. Lines are very clean and fluid. Anodizing appears thick and quality.
Overall, drop selection is something that must be judged by the player using it. Personally, if you are looking for the right length adjustment without adding hopper height, then the CP Micro Drop is where its at.
Outstanding quality, delivers what your looking for. You can purchase this drop without any hesitation.
