Stock feedneck wedge
Inefficient for a poppit
easy to roll orings
GOOD: Nice marker for any player, it is balanced well in the hands because the regulator and grip are relativly far apart. not luxe far, but nicely spaced.
there are many upgrades you can find for this, so you can make yours truly unique. not visually unless you lazer or anno it, but you can make it work how you want.
THE STOCK BOARD IS ADJUSTABLE. whoever wrote a review saying that it wasnt was wrong. you can adjust the dwell, debounce, and even adjust the firing delay.
it has all the benefits of a spool valve marker without the drawbacks which means no bolt stick, and better efficiency.
The feed neck is extremely low because it is milled into the body. You can get a higher one from bob long if you play dorito side, but i play snake so i need a lower one.
the grip frame is very thin, and with the stock grips can barely hold the battery so you might get a bulge.
The stock regulator is easily my favorite one on the market, but the macroline port is in the middle so if you are used to an eclipse or angel reg, then you might want to get a cp reg.
BAD: inefficient for a poppit marker, unless you have the proficiency engine.
you can not take off the feed neck pipe so if your hopper neck is too wide, you need to sand it down. the collar is upgradeable though.
When you take out the engine, it is easy to roll o rings on the out side because dow 55, (the recommended lube) swells them so they can roll or break on the transfer holes.
Maintaining the lpr means taking off the grip frame, unscrewing 4 screws, and using pliers to detach the hose to the solenoid, then trying to get the pistons out by either sucking them out, or using a tiny allen wrench to push it out. then gooping up the pistons and getting them back in and BLUE loctiting the cover back on. on top of THAT, you either need to have a gauge with the right size barb and have the grip frame off, and adjusting it that way, or getting the specific pressure test from bob long and getting new gauges so you can adjust it precisly. just take it to a tech to adjust the lpr.
The annodizing is not always consistent throughout the marker because not all the aluminum is always the exact same grade. it will look fine in normal light, but if you look at an all black one in bright light, your barrel may be a dark purple, your reg a dark blue, and your trigger straight black.
INDIFFERENT: depending on where you like your macro line to go into the regulator, you might want to get a new one. if you like an on/off asa, you are going to need a new one, if you want a low rise or high rise clamping feed neck, you need to either go to vanquishproducts.com or boblongdirect.com. these markers are not made anymore so if you can find one, buy it for no more the 450 no matter what it has. if it is bone stock, no more then 350. the stock trigger is a spring return and is kind of like an ego trigger with a less pronounced swoop, so you might want a trigger from either critical, violent products, or bob long also. not much of a snatch grip, and you will either get one with the 12 inch assasins barrel, or the 14 inch pro series one piece barrel. These do not come in many colors so you are going to need to anodize it to get the color you might want.
Great marker all around, many ways to set it up, stable in the hands and is a paint burning dragster. you will run out of paint faster then normal with this so watch out for it. Once you get one, you will fall in love with it instantly.
