Products Used:
Marker Setup: A-5 w/flatline barrel, palmer regulator
bottom line setup with 3.5 oz co2 tank, expansion chamber or regulator, 10 inch barrel
Strengths: Shoots pretty good, very fun to customize, holsterable, easy to work on
Weaknesses: Hates liquid co2 in valve, only 8 shots, upgrades limited and hard to get
Review: First and most important is that the sydarm does not like liquid co2 in the valve. So if you use 12 grams you will have problems because when inserted they are located horizontally above the valve. This does not help keep liquid from entering the valve. After going through 30 12 grams and having problems with freezing, I upgraded to a CA adapter, and a foward facing asa mounted under the grip connected to a 3.5 oz co2 tank. This gives room for the co2 to expand (though an ACI sub Zero x-chamber or a palmer regulator would be ideal) and is still pretty compact. I only freeze up if i rapid fire as fast as i can. I have not had problems with chopping and i use mid grade balls. The 8" stock barrel limits range and twist lock center feed barrels are hard to find.
Other note:12 grams get 16 consistent shots if you shoot slow
12 grams will work ok if you shoot very slow ( 1 shot every couple seconds)
Ive heard that in ideal conditions the 12 grams work find,but i don't play in ideal conditions very often.
Conclusion: If you want a marker that uses 12 grams DON'T GET THIS, you will only be disappointed with freezing. If it did not freeze i would give it a 10 however since it was designed to use 12 grams and they freeze up i give it a 5. If you get around this problem this marker is great, other wise get something else.
5 out of 10
