Review: Originally I had purchased the ANS front block kit to replace my STO kit. Yet, after a year of use and installing an e2 frame on my gun, the ANS ram (even with QEV's) didn't seem to keep up and eventually the internal o-ring began to leak. After reviewing various different rams, I decided to choose the Belsales Performance 44 Magnum Ram. I have no regrets what so ever.

I did notice how much larger in diameter that the ram was compared to other rams. Yet, this is because the piston's surface area is much larger allowing a much faster and easier motion throughout the cycle. In addition, the inside of the ram is polished and only one o-ring is used which provides an amazingly smooth movement of the rod.

After installing the ram on my gun, I had a small problem getting my QEV's to line up correctly, but with a bit of teflon tame and adding some small o-rings the problem was fixed. After gassing up my cocker, I slowly increased the LPR's pressure until the ram would cycle successfully. I was surprised to see that I could keep my front block at a lower pressure and the ram had no problem with the hammer spring.

Personally, according to my e2 ROF screen, I shot 16 balls per second with the eye on. But I'm obviously not the best in the world at that. Others that I have talked to said that they've had their ram cycle at 20 balls per second with no problems.
Conclusion: I woulld recommend this product to anyone with a standard or electric autococker. Although pbreview says it should be around $40 I had to cough up about $60 bucks for it, but it was well worth it. If you want to get the most proformance out of your gun, get the 44 magnum ram.
