Experience:

Products Used:
Stock VAs on Tippmann
VAs on other guns (Spyder knockoffs)
Marker Setup: 98c, teardrop, RVA, Rocket Cock, more to come
Strengths: It does its job, makes chronoing much easier
Weaknesses: Didn't fit, had to use a grinder
Review: Well, I purchased the RVA, because I didn't like using the stock VA. So, I strip my gun to put it in and the fun begins. It is ever so slightly larger than the stock endcap. After screwing my two halves back together (I had to force it more than I wanted) I noted a slight gap between my recievers. I had to take the gun apart again and had a hell of a time getting the RVA out. After I finally get that off I start to sand the grooves that it sits in. I put it back together again and it fits. It is still VERY tight, but atleast the gun no longer has the same gaps as before.

UPDATE
Used a grinder and some sandpaper to make the diameter of this smaller. Now it fits on without seperating my shells. I just need to get to a chrono now to check.


Conclusion: This is a great upgrade if you want it. It isn't going to really help anything other than give you an easier time at the chrono. I guess go for it if you got the money to spare.

I'm giving it a 6 since it didn't just drop in like I hoped. I felt I shouldn't have had to use a grinder on it. If you have access to a grinder or a dremel, go for it.
