Review: At first I had some trouble with the TES re-cocking and it had a small leak down the barrel but the guys at my local pro-shop had it going again in a day or two. The cup-seal and valve were bad. Also the stock spring was rusty but the guys at the local proshop where I bought the gun replaced it for free. Now the TES works flawlessly.

This weekend was my first time playing with my T.E.S. on a field with other people shooting at me. So far I am pretty impressed with it. It shoots awesome and is very consistent. It is semi-low pressure gun it operates at 300-425 psi, 400 psi is a good pressure to operate the gun at. HPA is recomended because the velocity is controled by the reg and drop in pressure may effect re-cocking and velocity. I've heard that people using CO2 have had trouble with thier o-rings breaking because the rubber gets brittle when they get cold. The field that I played on had there crono at 250fps and the gun velocity was set at 245fps and didn't vary more or less then two or three feet per second. Not bad for the stock reg. The TES is pretty good on HPA with a full 68 ci 3000psi tank after shooting 900 rounds there was still 1000psi in the tank and was still shooting consistant. The TES is also awesome on batteries, I still have the regular Duracell that it came with and it's still on full after shooting 2500 shoots approx.

The rate of fire is excelent, I'm new to the game and I can walk the trigger pretty fast(zoomy fast!). I have yet to break a ball in the barrel or chop a ball, the eye works great. The eye does not see darker colored paint however. Even with the eye off and a gravity feed hopper I didn't chop any paint while target shooting. The trigger is not adjustable but fairly light and short pull, very sensitive to begin with. Recomend a higher flow air system, needs a high recharge rate for re-cock. The re-cock is not adjustable.

There are not many upgrade parts for it right now. The barrel is Spyder threads so there are tons of barrels you can buy. The TES will fit an Intimidator bolt, you just need to use the stock pin because the Timmy pin won't work. All of the fasteners and screws are Metric. The Allen wrenches the TES comes with are kinda crappy and do not fit all hardware, so I would recomend buying a set of Metric Allen wrenches.

The feed neck is a bit small I had to sand my egg but the VL200 fit fine. You may need to sand your hoppers, but it only takes a few minutes. Also the feed neck is removable, not sure what thread type. The gun is adjustible from 4-20 bps. At one point in time there was an auto mode on the TES mine does not have it (not full auto mode, just more reactive trigger). The milling and the anodizing is very nice but there is a very sharp edge on the back of the TES near the re-cock pin, be careful when re-cocking it doesn't feel good to jab yourself with the sharp edge. Also the TES is easy to take apart and to clean or oil. NOTE: To turn the eye off hole down the trigger for approximately 10 seconds. The ONE kit is available for this gun which will increase your ROF to 30bps for 250.00.

The T.E.S is an awsome gun, I just wish the owners manual was as awesome. Dragun is very promt in getting back to you if you email them with a problem.
Conclusion: The TES is probably the best gun you can buy for the money I got mine as a gift for 270.00. The TES is smooth, quiet, consistant, fast, accurate, efficient, and light. Works well stock with HPA and a new barrel. Awesome gun for beginners and seasoned players alike.

Trigger is adjustable. You can replace drop without changing reg. I believe you can buy any medium drop with grooves for an on/off and simply switch it with your drop and then slide the dragun asa onto it.

Jeepnaked is my girlfriend, and thanks, challes2000 i found the adjustment for the trigger, the manual sucks poop. If you needed to change out the stock hose you would have to change the reg and drop, unless you could find some metric to standard adapters. NOTE: I was able to fix the lack of the "auto Mode" on the marker with a trip to the PBR fourms, i was able to switch a small chip around that seemed to have been installed backwards and the marker works even better than before.......

You have to pull the grip frame off and there's a set screw on the top of the trigger, use a allen wrench to turn it...........not the best but better than nothing.

I swapped out the reg and drop last weekend to a system X drop w/ on/off and an ergo reg from WGP, I have not played with them yet but I like how they look I'll have to let you all know how they perform. Auto mode is awesome, I can't believe the difference it made with the trigger, more reactive. I have a Zentiram trigger (curved) and that also made a huge difference, it's adjustable without taking the whole grip frame off and it looks good even if only comes in silver, you can paint it if this bothers you. 23-25 bucks shipped from Zentiram.
