Marker Setup: Well the marker that I tested it on is a custom Docs machining Fastback with E1 grip, zero B board internals, tornadoes valve, docs flat front bolt, bko all delrin bolt, palmer stabilizer, palmer rock, and palmer ram with Qevs, and a custom hammer kit. Barrel is also a custom docs freak remake made of aluminum to lighten the load, with the stainless steal inserts. 68/5000 evil scion tank, lapco clamping feed neck and a Angy halo b with rip drive.
current setup fires 23 BPS
Strengths: It protects solenoid more than original hardware.
Weaknesses: Assembly is cheap and crapy quality.
Review: I was very excited to get my two new solenoid covers for my two ebladed cocker, be warned picture above and pictures on web site are not what you will receive. I paid 18 dollars a piece for these covers ( due to increase in demand, according to moody) and I was expecting a new enclosure for the solenoid. Instead what I received was two small flimsy pieces of tin that have been polished. being skeptic I put one on. It consisted of removing the two screws from your solenoid and then inserting the two long screws through the top of the current cover and then threading the tin to the bottom and installing two very small nuts on the end. doings so very carefully because the finish is destroyed if you touch it with a tool. also be warned that your cover will not look like the picture, the tin dosen't fit properly so there is gaps and over-hangs all over. Looks hideous.
Conclusion: I am considering returning these parts due to false advertising and crappy design, but on the plus side your solenoid will be protected. ( I took mine off because it looked so bad.)

Also no instructions were included.

A few points:
The instructions are one the same page that this page links to. It's under "Click here for installation instructions." Sorry you missed it, even if it is in big, bold red letters. Here it is anyway:

You get exactly what is shown on the site, a cover for the bottom of the stock solenoid housing. No where on my site does it claim anything else, or imply anything else. If you had taken the time to read the page, you would see that the pictures all show a stock solenoid housing, and the picture is focused on the plate that is installed on the bottom of it.
As a matter of fact, both pictures shown on the cover page were edited to highlight the plate on the bottom of the housing, while darkening, and subduing the housing it's self. If you had any questions about them, you really should have e-mailed me first.

"I am considering returning these parts due to false advertising and crappy design,"
Oddly enough, you never did contact me. If you had, and the covers were not scratched or damaged, I would have been happy to give you a refund for the cost of the covers. The same goes for any other product I sell. I stand behind all my products 100%.

I am just upset about the cover, The shape is wrong the screws fit to tight and the bottom nuts come loose. I would return but in a attempt to not judge a book buy it cover and give your product a try, I did put a scratch on the plate. My main gripe is the price, I understand you had an increase in demand so you raised the price but damn almost 20 bucks for two screws and a shiny piece of tin that you bent to some what fit the solenoid cover. Also you site yes I read everything and I saw the pic and even in your pic you cut it down better to fit tighter and you did edit the pic because it looks nothing like what I got in the mail. What you sent me was cheep at best, and not worth 18 bucks.

What you got in the mail is exactly what is shown on the site, a plate that covers the bottom of the solenoid housing. The one shown on the site is the exact same that that you got.
