Review: Edit: *3 years later after i sold this gun.....i totally regret it now, out of the box these cockers were the real deal in performance.....hand built and tested by shaw from kapp.....and for a true mechanical cocker.....the cycling was one of the smoothiest you can have........the money you paid for back then was totally worth it because you were buying the performance of this gun besides it exotic milling and aftermarket parts*

my old story: I personally went to the kapp store in san rafael, ca and saw this cocker first hand before i bought it. i must say when i first handled it, it was pretty freakin lite with the barrel on and i just loved it from that moment on.

the pictures online dont do the reflex justice because the milling is quite exotic up close and the body is gutted out in the middle (in other words you can see thru the body of the cocker). anno job is very even and the barrel is annoed the same color as well.

kapp aired it up right there and it had no leaks...which is a dam good sign...then the reflex trigger....whooaaaa...its one smooth trigger stroke and with it aired up, i immediately found its sweet spot when testing it out.

also the reflex runs around at 205 to 285 psi as i was told but never had time to gauge the input or a guage for that matter however it was gentle enough for the bolt to stop on a paintball without chopping it and was also very hard to short stroke due to the very close and tight timing from shaw.

the reflex also has two ball detents on both sides of the gun thus your shots are always well centered....plus the feed neck is removeable....also kapp provides its own two piece barrel (kxs) which u can get different bore sizes for it and make your own barrel kit from the range of .685-.691 (simply amazing for a barrel that comes with an awesome cocker as part of the package)

when i took it home, i ran some paint thru it....i was not surprised by the performance...but absolutely shocked and amazed on how fast i could shoot this thing (something like 8 bps on a steady rhythm *again very buttery smooth trigger pull*)....and the paint i used was horrible too (no chops regardless even with the k2k aluminum bolt), pretty straight and flat trajectory and the balls fell right on top of each other at 40 ft.

lastly the reflex is very quiet and the kick is very small compared to stock wgp cockers

the last thing is.....if you order this cocker, you should call kapp to tell them what bore size you want....lucky for me i went there and told them i wanted the .688 size which fits marbs and pmi....otherwise the reflex i picked up originally had the .685 size which fits very small paints and i really wouldnt have used this barrel if this happened.



Conclusion: All I can say is this cocker shoots darts and this is a great valued packaged....u get all of kapp's highly quality products on it (internally and externally)...im very happy with this cocker and kapp provides a 1 year warranty for it as well....highly recommend this cocker if your looking for a good valued hinge cocker

*Edit* after 3 years time has passed.....this to me is still one of the best hinged mech cockers out there..........if i could find my old one......i would buy it back in a heart beat...however people that do get lucky and find old kapp reflexes beware that those guns maybe out of timing by now or previous owners may have neglected them.
