Review: First off I liked this set up when it worked, but I never got the 3-way to stop leaking. I easily shot a case of paint through it and didn't have any true problems besides the annoying leak, but then again all I heard all the time was psssss coming from the 3-way. I would have to air up right before the game that way I was sure to have good pressure all game. I tried everything to get the thing to stop leaking, made sure the shaft was straight (check), lubed it up with different types (would just blow the thicker stuff out the front end), fiddled with the LPR adjustments, and changed the o-rings to a new set (miniscully larger but it caused sticking issues so back to the old ones). Nothing worked, went on with my life. Came back to it after another day of play, was still leaking, started to adjust the LPR again and it came loose but a kink in the hose going to which then blew out the sealant on the middle barb = 3-way is trashed. I don't know if I can remove the barb as it doesn't have a place the get a wrench on it, but at this point Im so feed-up with it. Well thats my rant on the 3-way. I hope mine was just defective and that you all don't have to deal with the same non-sense. Now on to the rest...

The rest of it i really like. It looks awesome. The finish is very clean with nice accent milling. It comes fully assembled and ready for bolt on. All pieces where very firmly in place (took me some effort to break loose the 3-way for replacement).

The ram worked well for me, put some lube down the shaft just as precaution but never had a problem wih it sticking and I thought it was a real good size.

The LPR has some nice milling on it and is adjustable. Mine was very hard to adjust, which probably lead to the 3-ways barb seal breaking. I would have to take vice grips to the LPR (with a cloth so not the scratch the thing) and an allen key to the adjustment lug.

Some complain about the barbs being big but I never found it a problem. Just don't twist and bend the hose when you remove them, pull straight out, and be patient when you reconnect. I swapped mine out in a matter of minutes.

I found the kit easy to time. I was kinda iffy about the couplers not having any set screws but my timing never slipped bad enough halt firing. Make sure you use the right coupler, if you have a hinge trigger, more than likley you will need the large coupler. I personnally like to have a gauge on the bottom of the front block and this did not have a port for it so....
Conclusion: Oh, this is the hardest part. I want so bad to recommend this and say "Its awesome you wont have any problems at all!" but I just cannot ignore all the problems I had with the 3-Way. As it stands now the going internet price +\- $30 which is much cheaper than any others. After buying my new 3-way I am still spending less then most kits. Overall its better then the massive stock pneumatics so i would say get it if you can get a good deal and cross your fingers you dont end up with the same fate as me.
