Review: When i first got my Rail i was excited, it being my first electro, having only owned a tippy before it.. However right out of the box, the airport (or so it says in the manual) where the tank screws in had a leak. The local shop owner who i bought it from, fixed it with a spare part he had around from his Dye. After that problem was fixed, we opened it up to set everything up , and i was actually dissapointed in the way the wiring was set up. Short wires, Easy to pinch. However, that won't be a problem if you handle your gun with care when taking in apart.
With the gun ready to go, we gassed it up and did sum prelimary test shots with it, and found the stock barrel to be not bad with a decent paint-bore match (of course). Setting the Halo on level 6 (fastest setting) we preceeded to empty hopper after hopper out of the rail, firing it until we had maybe gone through a case of paint ( break in period for the reg is 2000 shots).
The gun has 4 modes of fire
- Semi Auto
- Psp Ramp
-Capped
it also has a hidden mode (in configuration mode for firing modes, pull the trigger four times), NXl full auto, after two or so trigger pulls the gun bumps up to your max rate of fire that you have set, and continues to shoot full auto until you let go
theres a vid on youtube if you dont believe me...

Modes can be a little tough to change, as im always worried about the wiring, also the switch for configuration mode feels a lil flimsy, im hoping the UL frame won't be put together the same as the stock frame.... (anyone with one, can you tell me?)

After owning the gun for about a month or so, I found another small problem, the material that makes up the grip frame has begun to almost flake away where the top screw is on the grip frame, resulting in the threads being stripped, not a big problem, but one none the less.


I didnt have time to finish this review in on sitting...

The Trigger can be a little wierd for some people at first, im not a big fan of it, as it wobbles side to side, which i find annoying. However i can deal with it until either more companies come out with aftermarket triggers, or more stores start carrying them. A Ul frame would fix this, but its just a personal preference.

The stock barrel isnt to terrible with a proper paint-to-bore match, however, it can be picky with smaller bore paint.(DUH) When i first got the gun, after we shot the case of paint i went to wallyworld... i know, in our town its one of the only three places you can get paint... the other one only has boxes of 100 balls and thier even worse, and the guy at the field where (i got my gun) didnt have any on hand.. but i got a case of monster balls, which usally have no problem with my freaked tippy. These ball tend to be relitivly small bore, so the accuracy wasnt the greatest, but the gun had no problem shooting them, and shooting them, i only broke on ball, which was my fault, i accidently turned the eyes off, and my halo was set just a lil to slow. To clean the broken ball, all i had to do was run a squeegee through the barrel, and to clean the eyes, i used some keyboard cleaning air 9 the compressed stuff) to get the paint out of the eyes, the ran a squeegee through the whole gun , not a big thing .

The back cap seems to thread out after a lot of firing, and begins to leak air, even when im not shooting the gun. This is simply corrected by hand screwing it back in though.

Even with the small problems that come with a marker such as this ( well known company , entry priced marker) The pros out wheigh the cons .


*EDIT*
Have since added a new UL trigger, red virtue eyes, l7 bolt, hybrid traitor back cap, new buttons and new eye covers.
My PMR is beginning to go a little wonky,the trigger micro switch cuts out when I pull the trigger faster than 10 bps, ( p.s it is a new battery) and my battery cable that connects it to the board is almost broken, very very cheap wiring.
I have only got about two pods and a halo out of a 47/3000 tank at best . im going to upgrade to a larger tank and a new regulator, as i have had nothing but trouble with the hyper2,
( i have maintained it btw, cleaned and greased and checked all o-rings)
Conclusion: Light , Fast, cheap, a lot of marker for the money. i don't want this review to turn into an ion vs. The World debate, so i WON'T say get it over the ion, but defiantly check it out.

True about the short wiring. The guy at Dye told me i must have gotten a flawed one but when i opened up my grip, the battery wiring was falling out of the clip. Had to send it back. Such a pain but I'll get over it. Thanks for the tip about NXL auto. Ill be sure to try it when i get it back. Good Review.
