Possibly a new barrel.
Anything to reduce the kick.
Out of the box: Looks great thats all I have to say. The psi is set at about 250-300 psi, you should turn it down to about 180 psi. I didn't have any compressed air tanks with me at the time so I couldn't test it until I went out on the field.
First use: I have no idea what happened to me, I had turned down the psi to 180 as my store recommended to me after I bought my air tank, but when I had it filled at my local field the psi jumped to about 400. Okay, no biggie, I'll just test it out at the chrono range. My first three shots just sprayed right out of the gun. Literally. So, I turned my gun off, went over to one of the picnic tables and tried to figure out what went wrong. At first I tried to lower the psi but I couldn't. (I later learned all I had to do was take my tank off and dry fire the rest of the air in my gun.) But instead of taking the tank off and lowering it I ended up leaving the tank on and INCREASING the psi. It got to the point (600 psi) where the gun all of a sudden fired. Guess that's a bad thing. And throughout the day I had to play with a rental gun (free of charge at our field if our guns break down).
Troubleshooting: I called evoventures after I got home and they had my gun taken care. Their customer service was awesome. They explained to me what happened and said to just ship them my gun. Turns out an o-ring in the solenoid had burst. It took them about a week before I got it back. They replaced everything free of charge! About 3 weeks later I finally got to the field and had no problems after that, I had bought a Crossfire 68/45 and the gun performed flawlessly.
- Few, if any, upgrades needed.
- Cheap, I payed about $250 for mine.
- Customer Service, helpful in every way.
- Feedneck, I had to wrap electrical tape around the neck of my egg hopperso it wouldn't swivel.
- Kick, it has a substantial amount of kick.
- Loud, this can probably be solved with a new barrel.
- Macroline fittings, at first the macroline blew out, but after I had my gun fixed that all stopped.
I would recommend this to anyone with the money, there are better guns out there but for the $250 I paid for it I was pleased.
I wouldn't give this a 10/10 as this is in no way a "perfect" marker.
8 out of 10
