Parts can fall off/out
Quick-release bit on gun resricts airflow.
This is the only remote that I have used. I have two of them. On the first one I had I lost the knob that you screw down onto the tank.
In general this product works. So I will be giving it a passing grade.
However several improvements could be made to this product dealing with the part used on the CO2 tank.
On the part that you screw onto your gun, which you attach the quick release to, I've found it restricts the flow of gas some, unless you back it out a bit. I put a flat o-ring on it to back it up. No problems now.
Also it is my belief that the remote gives the liquid CO2 extra room to expand, acting as a sort of expansion chamber. This makes it so if you are firing at higher bps, you won't have quite as drastic velocity drop.
An issue I have (not really with this product) is that there aren't too many different remote line manufacturers currently.
I plan on buying one of the CORE remote lines and seeing how it turns out. *I may update this review after using the other remote for a while.*
My friend purchase a CORE remote line and I had a chance to fiddle around with it a bit. It appears that it has similar problems with the parts being able to unscrew completely as this product.
In conclusion; if you find this on sale, or just want to try out the remote system it's worth purchasing.
Gotta watch it though, you can accidently loose parts if you're not careful.
