ive used most markers to date.....wgp, ans, dark etc.
bone stock vengence revy and a no name 68/4500
hmmm.....if you can afford it a new barrel but thats about it............i will say eframe for those of you who are looking at haveing an electro cocker as your main gun, but im not thrilled with the ones ive seen
i couldnt find any real weaknesses to the design
Well honestly im very new to this gun and cockers in general, ive never ownd one ive shot alot though, and ive used alot of other markers......
Ok let me do the bad stuff first and it was only 2 :D
1 i had a leak between the reg and the va it started during a game after i shot along volly, the reg had come lose i just screwed it back in
2 during the volley i fired be for my reg leaked i had some minor shoot down.....i belive that it came from the gas escaping my gun from the lose reg
i did run this marker through a few test (remeber that this was all done in the first 500 shots through the gun i belive it may improve after i break it in a bit more)
1st i used a gunstand to benchrest it and shot at a 12x12 metal plate at about 30y all shots grouped right on top one another
Next i slow fired over the crono and got 275, 276, 275, 275, 273
Then i shot it as fast as i could off to the side and very quicly fired a shot over the crono i got 269( i only did this once cause i was runing out of paint)
And last just because i could i 1/2 loaded a ball and tryed to cut it.....it didnt work
As for on the field play it keep me in with the other players all using electros
it fealt wonderfull when i was firing long vollys and its "pointablility" was awsome
ive honestly been a terribly snap shooter since i moved away from my black dragun as my main marker and i always figgured that it was just me needing to practice more (and im sure it is part of it) but with this gun it was unbeliveable i came out of a buncker and could just feel where my shots were going (an awsome fealing let me tell you :D )
As far as moving with it no problems there it just kinda flows with you i ran up the tape firing and i can say that it was almost as if i was standing still......well not quite but better then any other marker i played with....well any way about 1/2 up the line i started catching fire and floped down behind the snake and it felt WAY more natural then it does with my matrix.......oh i almost forgot its also an easy gun to fire from a realy odd position like 1/2 sitting behind a buncker and shooting left handed while keeping the buncker from being blown away by the wind.
well like i said im very new to autocockers but this marker made me a believer, i may not be runing out to sell my matrix or my other electros but ill definetly be using them less now.........................
ahh for the ratings
looks 10....... comon tell me its not sexy
performance 10.......i did notice some shoot down after a realy long volly...say 1/2 a hopper (may have been a reg problem)
handeling 10 this is kindof a hard thing to express in numerical terms. it was more like a realy good dream (but also it might be a nightmare for other people, handling characteristics of a marker will find favor with some and dispise with other... but then this is my review isnt it :P)
price ........ummm can i give it a 20 (no other high end autococker or any other marker for that matter comes set to play right out of the box)
In conclusion I will say this there may well be other autocockers on the market that are better (i havent shoot any but im sure they are out there) but for the price this beats anything in its class and a few classes higher up hands down.
so guess what this may not be my first perfect 10 but it is and will be one of the few
