D.O.P. pro drop forward

anything else you would do to a gun.
Strengths: Closed bolt
great use of gas.
Weaknesses: Compact hinge frame (for some people)
Review: OK i got the package from my local shop opened it up and....
instructional dvd (good only for new players) -cool
barrel condom- nice saves me 4 bucks
no hopper- kinda dissapointing even the custom 98 comes with a vl-200
14in stock barrel- better than a 12 nice

(all cronos wereover 25 rounds)

All right took it down to my field gassed it up with a 12oz shot 1200-1500 rounds through it to see how it was. No chops, double feeds, or breaks all day (sweet).
shoot-down with o2 was expected but not as bad as I thought it would be chrono was +/- 16 (not bad for o2). Gun was very accurate (props to Bud Orr for the closed bolt design).

So I swapped out the o2 for my worr gas 50/3000 first thing I noticed was a horrable inballence with the stock bottomline (my dop. pro drop fixed that check the pics for mine) anyhow with the nitro chrono gave my +/- 6 which is great for the stock reg. The nitro was way better than the o2 as is all autocockers.

Update: After getting my new bolt and boomstick this thing kills on the accuracy 6" @ 50 yds and the cycle speed is greatly increased with the loss on that two pound (seems like) bolt.

Update: CAUTION: I forgot to mention that this marker stays gassed up after tank removal i've had 3 shots left after tank removal so dont take it for granted that it's not able to shoot if its been degassed.
Conclusion: I do reccomend this product for all players some people will downplay this gun saying that it is a cheap gun from wgp for cheap people that it is not is good as the other 'cockers. Well i think diffrently #1 they are all made from wgp a good company that will not put out a pos product. #2 all cockers are as good as eachother this one is no diffrent so you cant upgrade the 3-way oh-well if you have to upgrade a damn 3-way to feel competitive or have a 600-1000 dollar gun you have no reason to be playing its to have fun and gain skills not gear I can go out with astock class pump and cut the wings off angels why? Because I have taken the time to get my skills up. Anyhow this is a great cocker that can keep up with the rest of them it gets a 9/10 from me because its not perfect but since wgp's service is so great I give it a ten.

Hey I have a Competition cocker also. I love it I have used an angle speed before and i tell you that you cant get any better that this cocker!!! Great review!

sure you did buddy...
an angel speed outperforms this at all levels (even accuracy)
and fyi, the closed bolt theory has been disproven, accuracy is about consistancy and paint to bore match.

ohhh by the way Tippy he never compared an angel to this gun.
he was just saying that it takes skill to be good, not gear.
im a pump player and i can take out an angel any day =)
