Experience:

Products Used:
Smart Parts on/off female valve - on/off mechanism is not a thread saver, unlike this Worr
Marker Setup: PMI Piranha Pro TS G3
stock barrel
Worr Torpedo Drop Forward w/on-off
68ci/4500psi Centerflag compressed air tank
Viewloader Evolution 2 hopper
Strengths: solid, no leaks, bottom and side holes, saves threads
Weaknesses: After 2 months the on/off adjuster froze up on me.
Review: For the $40 price tag, this is a steal. To get these items separately, you'd have to spend at least $50-$60. I got the black version, which is actually glossy, not the matt finish you see in the picture. Maybe it's a newer version. Anyway, the drop forward is perfectly solid, and the on/off knob is pretty big and easy to turn. The on/off moves a pin back and forth, so that there's no pressure to fight against when you put the tank on, assuming the knob is unscrewed of course. :)

There are 2 allen screws holding the ASA adaptor onto the drop forward. They were rather loose when I got it, but a tiny English allen wrench took care of that.

It comes with 2 holes, one on the left side of your gun, and one underneath. It also comes with a plug to plug one of the holes if you don't need it for a pressure gauge. Just make sure you pull it out and put some thread tape on there because the default plug is not properly sealed against leaks.

It drops your tank about 2.5 inches down, and about 4.25 inches forward.

After 2 months, the on/off adjuster screw just froze up on me. It wasn't damaged. It wasn't hit. I don't know why, but it just started getting very hard to turn on and off all of a sudden, and then it completely froze up. I'm guessing the threading got mangled internally, but I don't see how. I'm very disappointed. Reducing the score to a 4/10.
Conclusion: I'd recommend it to anyone. It's solid, stylish, and does not leak.

Buy at your own risk! Mine is now unusable after 2 months and there's no warranty!

Wouldn't help. The knob completely froze up. Metal is mangled, for no good reason either. :(

i don't get how it froze up. did it actually freeze up or was it just stuck?

When I wrote "froze up", I meant that the metal threads on the screw seized up. I could no longer move the on/off screw, even with a pipe wrench! The metal must have been weak enough that the pressurized system was enough to warp and mangle it, because as I said, it only took 2 months for it to be useless, and I didn't play every weekend!

Maybe if you oiled it in the first place you wouldn't have this problem.
