Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month
3 years
Products Used:
Benchmark 4stg X-chamber
Marker Setup: Dragun E-1 - Stainless Steel Turbo Valve, Lapco Cup Seal, Custom Cut X-Raider Series Barrel no porting 10" , Check-It Products Dragun Full Force Delrin Bolt, Check-It Products Dragun Sweet Spot Trigger Flat, Check-It Products High Volume Cell, CMI R2000 Inline Reg with male / female ASA linked inbetween marker and ACI Sub-Zero 4stg X-Chamber, Java High Pressure Coiled Remote, 20oz Pure Energy Co2 Tank, Fed by a VL eVLution hopper. Double Regulated from 775psi bottomline reg, 550psi inline reg.
Strengths: For its size and price it does a decent job of helping to eliminate "snow." I use it inline with my CMI R-2000. Due to the nature of my marker's set up I required a good x-chamber with a compact size, but still able to do a good job at expanding liquid co2 into gas. Since I would be attaching an X-chamber into a CMI R-2000 reg which added an additional 2.5 inches in length I decided to go with the ACI Sub-Zero 4stg. I felt it would do a better job then other small compact x-chambers and it hasn't dissapointed me.
Weaknesses: Like all x-chambers the grip will get cold to the touch after a prolonged period of consistantly firing your marker. Also it lacks a 360* swivel insert, you must loosen the bolt on the bottom with an Allen Key to adjust the positioning of your insert.
Conclusion: For around $30 (depending on where you shop) you can purchase an ergonomical, compact, and functional expansion chamber that will expand your Co2 giving you more shots, as well as being pleasing to look at. They come in various colors allowing you to match your marker. No more frankenstien appearances. I rate this x-chamber at an 8.5 but since I can't select 8.5 I'll just select 9 to round it up. If you plan on a compact space saving set up then I recomend the Sub Zero 4stg, if you could care less about bulk then I would point you in the direction of the Sub Zero 6stg.
9 out of 10
