Review: well I'd been intrigued by the SR before they even came out and have always like cockers, especially e-framed ones. now that the price came down so low I figured I grab one even after reading some mixed reviews on them.
I bought mine from ansgear.com. Upon arrival I opened the box to discover a very nice case made of a cloth type material. Inside was the marker (of course) a barrel condom, a nice tool & spare box, and a nice manual. The manual for past cockers was a one manual for all model type thing and wasn't good. this manual on the other hand was VERY well done with excellent quality photos and detail.
so I wanted to air it up and test it right away. screwed in my tank with the asa all the way out and it still aired up. the asa on these are worthless basically since they are on even when screwed out all the way. I recommend replacement immediately.
so I went out with a hopper full to test it out. oh, before I forget you want to up the watch time setting from the stock 200ms to 400ms right away. ok, back to shooting. i tested it first in semi auto. the first shots i took were slow just to get used to it- very nice. It shoots very similiar to the black magic from a feel standpoint but I like the feel of the 90 degree frame even better. smooth with a hint of the cocker inertia associated with all but the mq valved cockers. now I wanted to see how it felt at a higher rof so I put it on psp ramp to 15 bps. started shooting and noticed a bit more recoil at the higher rate than a slower speed but still very reasonable. now I wanted to see the max capability with my prophecy on there I set it to uncapped ramp. shooting it uncapped provided insane speed i'd guess 25+ bps which is way faster than I ever had a cocker (and most other markers shoot). there was a good deal of recoil (kick) at this speed which isn't a real concern for me since i'll never likely shoot it like that again.
having owned the SR for awhile now I'm prepared to endore it as a great marker once it's properly set up that is. i'd say it's very versitile also. it's the first marker i reach for when it's time for woodsball and i wouldn't hesitate to bust it out in a tourny either if my clone ever went down.
the last point I want to make is that you don't need to be a cocker pro to own one, especially an electric one. they are set up (mechanically and timed) out of the box. all you'll do is add a couple drops of oil in the asa every few cases and just shoot it.
Conclusion: Overall, the SR is really nice! I'm giving it a 10 for what it is which is a very polished modern version of the autococker that has lots of awesome features and shoots amazingly. for what they sell for now I think it's the best value out there.
