Review: Ive only used my octane a few times because when i got it, i created troubles for myself right off the bat.


basically i got to the field with it and had an extra case of paint from home that i was just gonna rail down at the range to see what the gun could do.

but about 400 rounds in, my battery died and it started to leak gas through my grip when i shot (this is normal. the noid cant keep its pressure with low battery)

but i thought i had blown my noid. so i pulled the thing apart. when i replaced the battery and put the thing back together, i made a noob mistake of screwing the upper grip screw in too far.

this is a common mistake that new shocker owners often make.

the screw then ruined my noid board and i had to get it replaced ($100 CDN)



PROS

other than that, i am very pleased with it. the gun is soo fast i can dump my halo in like 8 seconds when im ramping my nerve.

its light as hell. the gun wieghs about the same as my barrel, maybe 2 barrels.

and the thing i love about shockers the most is their low profile. the gun is so tiny, it gives the angel 1 a run for its money.

One of my favorite features of the gun is the 15* reg. it makes is so comfortable to hold and shoot. especially while running.

and i like the fact that very few people have them. i only know of 1 other person at my field that has one. and those who have the octane, love it.
with guns like the dm4-6 and timmies, everyone has them. theres no personality to them.


CONS
the efficiency is lacking unless you get the HE bolt. and even then, its nothing to write home about. pretty average 1200 per 68/4500 give or take.




one more thing to mention.

when i first got my gun and gassed it up, i thought i blew my noid because when you dont let enough gas through the reg, the noid doesnt pressurize and it will leak gas through your grip constantly. but all you have to do is watch your gauge and make sure your at running pressure (190ish)
Conclusion: this gun is incredible. I would choose my octane over almost any high end tourny gun. there is very little that can compete with it imho.
