Review: I got this on Action Village for 60 dollars.

Well I Installed it as soon as I got it and noticed that it didn't come with any locktight. So I had to wait until the next day when I could pick some up. When I got it all installed and the loctite had dried I gassed it up and I heard a leak. So I had to tear it all apart and re-due the locktight job. Only a slight inconvenience as I couldn't play until the next weekend. One more thing is that when I tried to attach the cyclone feed thing to were the elbow atachment is It wouldnt fit. Luckely my brother had gotten a cyclone to so I just traded him for his cyclone and it fit good.

Once I got it all put together with no leaks I eagerly took it outside and Shot about 30 rounds through it..... It was a blender..... So I took it inside and angrily tore it apart and cleaned out the gun and the inside of the cyclone feed. After it was all clean and back together I went back outside and shot it again and it shot just fine... I don't have any idea what was wrong with it but now it works and that is all that I care about.

I field tested it today and it worked great. I had no misfires and no breaks at all. However I did have 2 or 3 balls roll out of the barrel but I am not sure if this is the cyclones fault. I had a guy pinned behind a tree when I remembered I had my cyclone so I stood up and fanned the trigger as fast as I could. God that was fun.

At the end of the day my tank was really low so I decided to watch the star until it stopped spinning and then I counted the shots I had left until the tank stopped shooting. I counted 26 shots were I would have had to push the pin thing to load a ball into the chamber. By that the balls were barely going 60 feet and they would have never broke on someone. So I found this 'weakness' to be negligible.

Lately I have been having problems with lots of ball breaks. This has been happening since getting the RT. I keep breaking them and then paint gets into the cyclone and covers all the other balls with paint... not fun This moves the rating down from a 9 to an 8
Conclusion: This is a great performance upgrade. It is very fun to use. After my first test shoot it shot fine.

I will give it a 8/10 because of the minor setbacks I encountered. I hope this review helped someone.

You cant "fan"/ walk the trigger with an r/t because it is still mechanical. The only thing you can do is pull and put pressure upon the r/t so that it works.

You might need a new ball detent if some of the balls are rolling out of your barrel. This has nothing to do with the cyclone feed. It shouldn't chop with a response on it, so maybe it needs some new internal parts. I would recommend getting the new vortex upgrade for it.
