Review: I go this marker shot like 10 balls out of it and it choaked on me. (extreme bolt stick) I had to take the thing apart disassemble the whole spool and lube it all again. After that it was shootign fine and then started choking on me again. So I stripped the gun entirely (thank gawd for being a gun tech) right down to the noid and found a seal in it out of place and once I got it in place. the gun started cycling ok. so I went to the local field to test it out and found out the thing was set way too high on the reg (first shot 480 FPS second shot 465 fps) so I cranked it down to normal (I chrony in at like 270 usually) once I did that the gun choaked again. I was really confused but then again it was shooting really high so I tore it apart again and then lubed it again as it seemed the high pressure of shooting at like 480 cleaned off most of the lube I put on the spool valve. once i relubed it it seemed to work fin and I had no issues from there. I ran a few tanks of air through it after that and everything was fine.

As for shooting it and the balance of the gun I was quite impressed I was thinking that i might retire my Etek which is a machine gun. The gun itself with a 45/45 on it felt super light (like a mini almost but better balanced and longer.) I will note one thing though this gun is the quietest I have ever had the pleasure of shooting. From there I was in a tourney where the BPS was limits to 15 or less by using slower hoppers. older sound activated hoppers will not function right with this loader because it can be too quiet to set off the sensor. This was the case with a Halo TSA backman I switched up to a team mates revy and all was good again.

A few notes of mention from when I had to strip the gun completely is that the gun is very simple to maintain once you get used to how the spool pulls out and goes back in. I am not mentioning the rest of the gun for the way it is built the seals see little to no wear at all so there should almost be no reason to ever pull those areas apart.

The only thing I would recommend to anyone that buys one of these new off of the shelf is to go to youtube and watch the video on how to assemble the cylinder as the instructions are good but are not 100% clear on it. Then strip the cylinder and relube it all and then put it back together then chrony it to make sure it is not at something aburd like mine was after that I'd run a few tanks of air through it to break in the reg a little.

If you do get one I would also recommend to look at the Tadao board coming out for it and I heard rumours of a virtue board coming out for it. The reason I mention the tadao one is that it coes with an OLED display screen, new grip pannels, and it comes with a RF transmitter to make it compatible with newer loaders that are setup with shot by shot activation and it also gets rid of the battery being on a cable and it puts in an actual clip for the 9 volt.
Conclusion: This is an awesome gun literally. I had a rough start to mine but after assembling it 4-5 times it is really easy to work on and understand
9 out of 10
