Review: So, I bought three of these Outkasts to sell to locals and help boost the pump scene where I play. Problem is, some of them come completely un-tuned from the factory.

As I took them out of their boxes, I noted that it's a great looking gun and it's got a smooth pump action. They were reasonably well packaged and came with a manual, barrel sack and a tiny itty bitty barrel so everything would fit in the box.

When I started shooting one, I immediately noticed that this was a "farting" or "quacking" setup. I know my way around Autocockers and Sniper IIs, so I dialed out the IVG and attempted to sweetspot it with an aftermarket reg. I've never seen a factory gun that so completely resisted tuning. It looks like I'll have to replace the spring setup to make it shoot like a Sniper should. Unfortunately, sweetspotting is a chore with the stock reg. I suggest that be the first thing you upgrade if your gun shoots with a weird noise.

I finally managed to tune the gun to not "quack" when the pump handle isn't held. When the pump handle is held in position, it makes the same terrible noise, and what's more, the ball loses quite a bit of velocity. I'd like to make it clear that this is absolutely not normal behaviour for a well-tuned Sniper II. It was simply the most I could do with what came with the gun.

Now on the other hand, I have another Outkast that was also NIB. I got three, but I haven't seen the performance of the second I sold. This third one shoots great, without any farting or quacking. I guess it's luck of the draw.
Conclusion: If you can't tune a cocker's IVG and reg I would recommend looking elsewhere at a high pressure setup such as a Sterling or Phantom. These Outkasts are shipping while still out of tune, and they could really ruin someone's day if they don't know how to fix the problems the guns are coming with.

This gun loses points for shipping with bad spring combos, a nearly useless short and overbored stock barrel, and it's regulator that requires disassembly for adjustments.

Overall this is a below-average package. However, with the recent price drops down to around $110, the Outkast is worth a look if you can handle installing a spring kit and aftermarket regulator to make it playable. Beyond that, a barrel makes aiming easier and stops rollouts.

Its proboly quacks when you hold the handle becasue you are not fully pumping it foward.

No, it only quacks now *when* you hold the pump forward.

It's just a farting valve and it's because the springs are wrong. If a Sniper II is making these noises at all, it needs to be retuned.
