Review: I like to play woodsball, and was instantly sold on the mounting selection and ability to accept a stock. To my supprise the DTI2 has a dovetail mount along the top behind the feed neck. I decided to throw a relfex sight I had on a BB gun on there with my qloader... And it cleared the feedneck (it being at a 90* angle). I decided it my be fun to play witht the red dot reflex sight and to my supprise it worked quite effectively! The Model 98 stock I put in and the added weight of a full aluminum body help negate kick quite well.

Installing the QEV was no real hassle, and the M98 stock adapter fits in quite well. The body is somewhat longer, there being excess inches so the stock fits in at the back, and the barrel screws into the chamber a few inches from the front of the body as well. This may seem bulky to some, I suppose. However with qloader under the barrel on the front, stock/tank at the back it balances decently. I did have to grind down the feed neck threading on the DTI2 to fit the qloader feed neck into the breech threading, however. Yes, that is right, there is feed neck threading on the DTI2 body as well. Depending on how low you like your hopper to sit you may want to grind this off so you can screw it directly into your breech. I did so my reflex sight cleared the feed neck on my qloader, but that was mere millimeteres, probably not worth it to most people!

There was a lapco milsim body at the local field where I bought my ion, and it looked inferior to the deadlywind. It was far more bulky, less mounts, uglier. Lapco is still a good company, but they lose this round.
Conclusion: Great body, solid constructiion, so many mounts, looks cool, accepts stocks, has a dovetail mount. Solid!
