Wont run on Co2
Review: Ive had this marker about 12 months now and ran about 10,000 rounds of paint through it with varying success.
Now i know that some people will disagree with me here but here is my 1st bit of advice with this marker....
Dont use it on Co2!
It jams and freezes the valve seals. Which in turn causes heavy wear. Here is why.... When i first got it i went to a walkon with it as standard. No mods whatsoever and seen as i bought it as a package i got a Co2 tank with it. For about a half hour all was going well and it was firing as fast as my finger would go. But as i was firing away it started to fire as though in auto (bearing in mind i only had a standard grip on it this came as quite a surprise) The Co2 had frozen the valve pin and hammer. I only found out what was causing it when a guy lent me his spare air tank. (Dont know your name sorry bud but thanks) I got the marker home and did some further investigating only to find all of the seals in the valve housing had chunks missing and heavy wear.....

Some other things worth mentioning would be:
Hopper - Balls dont fall into cyclone as well as would hope but this is due to the low profile.
Barrell - needs replacing. Ok for close quarters but its no Hammer Head.
Sights - Useless (but arn't most sights on a paintball marker!)
Thirsty on air - Ah well its free!!! lol

Its been over a year since and Ive spent a few quid on the X7. But all in all this is the only gripe i have with this marker other than the weight. Its never let me down and shoots as true and as straight as most other markers costing a lot more.
Its been wet, covered in mud, sand and other un-mentionable gunk All it takes is a little clean and youre away again.
Weight - Bit on the heavy side
Conclusion: Overall its been an excellent newbie marker.
Able to strip and maintain with little mechanical knowledge. (just dont get the cocking spring and hammer spring mixed up)
versatile
Easy to mod
Would recommend this marker to anyone looking to get into the scenario game

Have given 8/10 as In my opinion there is nothing perfect in this world

The marker is capable of working with Co2.

Here we go..... There is always one!

Ok i know that some X7s do work quite well on co2. But my review is on my marker and that is what happened.
I also know of two other people that have had similar problems with an X7 on co2.
Just thought id highlight it to any potential new X7 owners. As I have troublr getting air around where I live

I have used CO2 on my X7 without any issues and potential X7 owners should no I have never ran into any issues or known of any issues with X7s using CO2. You should look at this thread if you continue to have problems with CO2.

well that link brings me knowwhere but back to the original part. he is correct, when you start climbing into high rates of fire they do have the potential to freeze up on co2 as does any blowback gun. mine has done it many of times. the co2 just cant convert to a gas in the small time frame it has before its fired
