Review: i used only once at woodland games. The slide check moves very smoothly, i dont know why someone said it was hard to move.

The coil is made for 3000psi so you can use this with either HPA or CO2. The coil when pressurize will coil up more (that is normal). When it recoils it self, it will shorten your length. So you will have to uncoil it a little bit, to remove some tension when you extend it.

The ASA for the tank, there is a small leak somewhere around there. I can not tell if it is from the top part (where you screw the pin in) or from the fittings. I believe is from the top, because after i screw all the way in and out it seems to stop sometimes.

The quick disconnect sometimes can be difficult to remove. So far i added some marker oil to the ball bearings and it seems to be better. Might try using the white lithium next time, since that is what i use no the a-5 cyclone.

The tube where the pin moves to open the tank valve, should have a built in o-ring, so make sure there is no leaks. I would suggest adding 3 layers or so of teflon tape on the screw, that will help with any small leaks from the top and probably even make the knob stiffer so you wont unscrew it off.
Conclusion: It does what it is meant to do, so therefore it is a good product and i would recommend it.

It gets an 8/10 because, the quick disconnect can be tough, and that makes the whole thing pointless. One time i just couldn't remove it. And the overall design seem doesn't really work to well.

You may want to get a stock with any remote, I myself am use to using the CO2 tank as butt plate. So it feels a bit weird.
