2002 std. feed cocker w/ eclipse blade trigger, dye stickies, twisted cocking rod, CP flame drop forward, kapp on off valve, freak set, 68 4500 nitro duck tuff skin tank
new 3 way, decent barrel, eclipse blade trigger, new beaver tail, new bolt( I don't care for the bolt much, stock cocker bolt works better and has better flow), maybe a new inline regulator...
This is a great gun for the price. You get all the ans parts you could ever wish for. The gun itself is nicely milled and it has chaos series written on the side. That looks sweet. The pneumatics on the gun look nice, and are anoed to match the color or fade of the gun. This gun is very accurate with the right paint to barrel match. I prefer the freak system.
Ans likes to use locktite on their guns when they ship them. That can make the gun hard to take apart and work on if it messes up. You have to buy a barrel for the gun. The beaver tail will not stop the bolt from hitting you in the face because it is not long enough. The bolt gets scratched all to hell easily which shows me that the gun must be lubed a lot because there is a lot of friction with the internals(maybe the internals aren't cut right). The gen x regulator is very hard to adjust with air hooked to the gun. So if you have to change the velocity, you have to unhook your air and adjust the reg, and then you can hook up the air again and chrono. This can get on some peoples nerves. The ans 3 way doesn't have the shortest pull in the world so you may want to get a new 3 way like the 3 way on the orracle cocker, or a belsales hollow point 3 way or a bomb 3 way.
This gun is fairly decent. It is definitely a bang for the buck because if you try to buy all these ans parts separtate it can cost a lot more than the 575 you paid for this gun. I shot the gen x 3 cocker, and to find that my 2002 std. feed cocker shot better was a bit to my surprise. If you just get a regular wgp cocker, a new trigger frame and a new 3 way you will have a better gun performance wise. Trust me, my buddy hates his genx now that he tested out my gun. This gun is mainly looks and not so much performance. If you want performance stick with WGP(Orracle), professional paintball(free flow), or smart parts (evolution x) cockers. They are certainly performance guns. If you want to have a pretty gun that doesn't perform as well as those others, get the gen x.
This guy is out of his mind, it's a great gun, and his poor review is dragging down the overall score of the review, it's sad one guy could do this. If you think I may be wrong, read the other 100 some reviews, almost all are 10's.
I have to agree, the next lowest score is an 8. Mine shoots arrows, and although I am anxiously awaiting my wifes approval to get a Matrix, the only thing I will gain by getting my matrix is speed. The accuracy of the Matrix is close, but no cigar. You just cant touch a cocker period !
One thing is certain, My cocker and my Tippman 98 will always be there, regardless of my Matrix. He only makes one decent point. She is real pretty!
My friend has this cocker ,and it rocks....he got it for 480. I'm get one for 389..new.how can you compare this gun with ones from WGP(Orracle), professional paintball(free flow), or smart parts (evolution x) cockers?These guns cost twice as much or more.I'm sorry this kid dosen't have a clue.
First off- this guy is a dumb dumb- I have this gun- its seen 17 tournament plays this year and My team won 9 of them- three of us shoot tricked gx-3's (Maxed with freaks, eblades/race frames, halos/evo's) in my PROFESSIONAL opinion you cant buy a better stock gun unless you are looking for ROF's in the 20's. Dont give me that a 1000 dollar stock cocker is better than the quality ANS gx-3 with soem decent upgrades- you must suck because its up to the player to make the gun work for him/her....
Son if you don't get your head out, your colon will explode!! First off every top manufacture includeing Bob Long, Dye, WGP, WDP ect. use locktite on their guns. You really don't want it coming apart in the middle of a game, and do not ever use teflon on your gun unless you want a screwed up reg and solenoid. My ANS was not only beautiful, but would keep up with the best of them on the field. ANS customer service is superior and if ever you have a problem call them they will fix it for you or tell you how to fix it. I have a timmy now, but I am looking for a GX3 for a back up.
