Review: I have been using this marker for almost two months it has held up to a CFOA event and a few local tournies and 30 plus games with no problems other than user error. The new torpedo reg is different in that is uses shims instead of a spring and has derlin pistons the reg is much more consistan and I am geting +- 1-2 over the crono and it swivels too. The stock barrel is pretty good and is a .689 bore up to user to change it I personally went with a 14 UL. The marker is overall well designed and has a lot of cool features like the grip frame screws are held in place on the inside of the frame so no buttons on the frame. The wedge feedneck is nice and works well. It has a wedge on the inside of the neck the more you screw in the nut the father out the wedge sticks out and clamps on to the loader. The lpr is located on the inside of the gripframe so its kind of a pain to adjust but there is also no external regs to get in the way other than the hpr. The trigger is horrible from the factory and is very stiff I heard they are sending out spring kits with them now so that should no longer be a problem. I personally JBwelded some magnets to the spring plate and trigger screw for mine and it can be adjusted with out bounce. The board is not very adjustable and the on/off membraine is a little hard to press down sometimes. The non adjustability of the stock board is ok because it gives you only what you need and most users upgrade the electronics anyways. So if you like to leave that part of the gun alone then it is very easy to reset the stock settings in case you are having problems. Breaking down the gun is pretty is there is a set screw in the back that will let you pull the whole firing assembly out to service it. One problem I had here was that I did not know when putting the marker back together there is a certain way the end cap most be put back on. The hole on the end cap that must line up with two other holes on the firing can other wise the marker will not fire. This is not meantioned in the manual anywhere and should have been in the " Hot Tips" but its not. The four eyes are not kind of useless in my opinion they only speed up the marker in its unlimited ROF and serve no use in tournaments because they are all capped at 15. My rapper came with the pillow bolt and quick disconnect ram which made me very happy :) because the screw ram is a real pain.


Pro's- Well designed marker, covered by warranty, excellant customer service, came with pillow bolt, and a decent barrel, looks sexy, and is easy to service.

Cons- Stock trigger spring sucks, and the LED light gets clogged easily
Conclusion: Over all its a hot marker and is built very well comes with extra o-rings and a stock bob long asa its shoots nice and is flawless in its operation super consistant too I love it and is backed by some of the best in the industry.
