Review: Can anyone say .50?
Okay, the only way I can accurately describe my love of this upgrade is that as soon as I purchased it, I rushed home, removed my Flatline and installed the shroud even without a barrel to use my trusty 98c with. If I play before I get a barrel I'm gonna have to use my brothers stock A-5, eww.
My only grievance is that is grinds the dovetail, and as I've seen in many reviews, people have had difficulty with installation. One guy said he clamped it on, wich is all well and good, but how do you take it off? My solution was to take a Dremel to the rail and grind down two small grooves on the dovetail to allow the shroud to easily slip on and off. I knew as soon as it was on that I would never replace that shroud anyway. None-the-less, the absolute perfection of this upgrade was to great to give it the dishonor of calling anything about it a weakness.
Showing up on the field with this will definately strike fear into the very souls of your opponents (for a little added fear get the M82A1 Muzzle Break). It makes for one very intimidating gun that no one wants to find themselves on the buisiness end of.
I just cant rave enough about this thing. Its scary, functional, reasonably lightweight , rigid, durable, and just plain great. Being a big fan of large caliber rifles, namely the Barret M82A1, and an aspiring Sniper (yes I know paintball sniping has nothing to do with real sniping, get off my back) I couldn't possibly be more satisfied with OPSGEAR's job on this. I mean its no-were near identical, but given the shorter length of OPSGEAR's version compared to the real thing, the taller-then-it-is-wide shape of the front of the shroud (as opposed to the real thing's more equally tall&wide shape) just makes sense to the eye.
Also, I would like to comment on OPSGEAR's M82A1 Muzzle Break, as it does not have its on review section. WOW. Seriously, WOW.
I didn't have a barrel to test it with my 98c, so I taped over the porting on the muzzle break of my Ariakon Combat Pistol, attached the OPSGEAR muzzle break and fired a shot. Loud? Definately. Scary? Absolutely. I can't wait to test it on the field with the 18 incher. I mean I've heard some loud paintball guns, but with that muzzle break my little pistol beat them all hands down. On my 98c it will definately scare the poop out of a few people on the field.
Conclusion: Best Cosmetic/Tactical Upgrade in the world. If you like the Barret M82A1, or if you need space for lots of attachments, or if you just want the most scary and beastly gun on the field, I recommend this shroud absolutely.
