-In-line reg needs a little break-in, but so do all new regs
Iíve had this marker for about 6 months now and absolutely love it. First day I got it, I took it out and ran a case through it. Straight outta the box, it was shooting 275, 270, 278 fps, which isnít bad at all for a factory reg setting. After I broke it in, now its +/-1 on the chrono.
I used a couple of different barrels with it, the stock pe shaft, my 14Ē stiffi (Bow-Chica-Wow-Wow), my 16Ē Deadly Wind with .689 insert, and a 14Ē redz with a .688 back. All of them shot great on the marker. Even the shaft, which Iím not too sure if you can consider it stock or not, considering it comes stock on the gun but you can also buy it separate as an upgrade to any gun? Hhhmmm, your call. Either way, I love that barrel on that gun out of any of my other ones. I didnít break a single ball and shot on target one after another.
After about 5 months of use, I saw a new upgrade for it, the Planet Eclipse GST Geo Soft Touch Kit. Its pretty much a drop in kit that allows the gun to improve in a couple of ways, air efficiency and noise. I got this kit for about $80 and love everything about it. It drops the noise level down dramatically and gave me about 300 more shots per tank. I have a friend that bought the same upgrade for the same gun and saw no difference between the stock setup and the new one. So Iím assuming that it varies from marker to marker.
As many spool valves that Iíve shot, this is still my favorite. I have always been a poppet guy, ever since I got my Cyborg, but this gun really changed the way I look at spools. I even favored my borg over all of my Dye and Proto guns combined. But now, Iím a spool lover thanks to the GEO.
Great gun. If you can afford it, get it!!!!!! You won't be dissatisfied.
