Shocker is heavier less air efficient and has more kick
DM/3/4/5/C is bigger hevier has more kick and cost more
FEP's The Quest stock barrel and reg a 68-45 Crossfire tank, CPon/off, CP rail, HaloB w/ rip drive with a Zenitram drive cone
nothing that isn't just personal preferance
Shoots accurate ropes with ease
Decent air efficiency for a spool valve
I'm thinking real hard...
I just bought this gun and have only used it two days. So so far so GREAT. I am happy with my purchase
on Sat. I took this sick gat to the field just itching to shoot it for the first time. First you need to set the lpr and inline reg pressure then chrono and adjust. after fallowing the basic instructions in the Manuel for how to set the reg's I was ready.
I got out a bag of very brittle evil paint that I had got just to test this gun. At first it shot it no problem then I ripped on it for a little still no breaks. I went to go play walk on's and it was cool for a second but when i got on the trigger balls started breaking. I don't know what my bps was but if I got on it with the really brittle paint it wasn't happening. I believe that if you know what your doing that you could probably set this gun up so that it could handle really brittle paint. You Know setting dwell and lpr and stuff like that maybe some slick honey to bring down the lpr too. I'm going to try all that later. I cleaned the gun and shot some regular midnight paint and didn't break one ball all day. at the end of the day I finished off the brittle paint too just shooting a little slower not one break in the gun.
As for air efficiency, I have a 68-45 cross fire tank and it was filled to 3,000psi and it shot 6 pods. That's not bad for a stock spool valve in the hands of the mechanically dumb, just goin by the manual. I was at 1,200psi before I shot my last two pods and after my tank dipped a little below 1,000psi that was it.
As far as upgrades go the stock barrel is great, very accurate a real value. The stock trigger is totally nice too. It comes with a CCM style like feed neck and torpedo reg. I personally prefer a twisting lock feed neck, which would probably be heavier. I might end up getting a CP reg just because I would probably prefer the air hose to come out the bottom of the reg, but as is I still found every thing about the gun to be very comfortable. The stock board allows you to set your Dwell, trigger bounce, D bounce, delay time for the break beam eye, first shot dwell boost and bps cap 14bps-23bps. the board comes with a PSP mode, NXL, some ramp settings, and of course semi auto. All of these adjustments can be done on the field through the trigger, it also has tournament lock.
Cleaning and greasing this gun was quick and easy
Playing with this gat is so fun. It is so light and compact in size it is a great gun for the snake and snapping in general. the accuracy is so fun I shot faces all day. Runners get ripped in the ropes. Wrapping your bunker can be done quickly and with the deadly accuracy of a sniper. This gun has NO KICK and is totally quiet. I love my Quest
this is based on two days of play time will tell more. So far so GREAT!
From what I have seen of this marker it is great, and I would thus far highly recommend purchase of this fine gat. I am very picky about guns and have played with all the 04 and 05 electric high end gats this one is my favorite among the few that I like. If you are considering getting this gun I say get it. Aside from dependability It is all personal preference. If this gun sounds like it has what your looking for in a gat then get it you will be very pleased. A rateing of 10 is perfection I do not believe that this guns is perfect but it is Great so I come up with a 9.
9 out of 10

how so, i've played with almost all of them... live in a populated area with good paintball fields.. make some friends.. and bingo, you now have access to (in my experience - every 04 timmy and about half the 05's, DM-everything but 6, Ego, proto's, OGI's, Angels - except the 06's and pre 2k2's, umm... the cyborgs, ion, shockers, impulses (1 of which was for a sponsored team, very nice) ... and I'm probably forgetting a few, all this from going to 2 fields on a regular basis and posting on my area's paintball forum's.
Remember, it's not his/her fault that you either don't have friends, or keep to your self every time you go out, if you go out.
