Products Used:
None
Marker Setup: PMI Piranha power feed with ACI 6 stage expansion chamber, 9 oz c02 bottle
Strengths: Precision, economical, ease of installation, PRICE, boosts accuracy and consistency
Weaknesses: Slightly heavy, DONT let that keep you away though, read on....
Review: Precision - The machining on this part is excellent, the cones on mine were very nicelely lathed and de'burred, nice running fit inside the chamber housing

Economical - WILL save you air/co2 in the long run, and it will pay for itself after a few fill ups. Uses less co2 per shot and allows the co2 to expand quicker, no bottomline should be without it

PRICE - $25

Ease of installation - Didnt take me that long to get all the fittings installed and line everything up. Just remember to have the threaded port on the body pointed where you want it,(use the allen screw on the bottom to loosen, turn as desired, tighten when done) whether youre using a 90° elbow or just threading the hose directly to the port. I had to use an elbow because my 7 inch hose was too long, if youre using a piranha get a 6 Use telfon thread seal tape, about 3 wraps per thread - i havent had ANY leaks at all doing that.

Boosts accuracy and consistency from shot to shot, period.

Now for the weight - it is slightly heavy and sort of large, but its a great grip, better than being too small, once i had it fitted to my piranha it wasnt that much heavier

*NOTE* If you are going to buy this, use an on'off valve on your co2 tank, it will let you turn off the co2 and always dry shoot the marker to use up the rest of the co2 in the chamber (which isnt much)
Conclusion: Great upgrade to any co2 powered gun, period. Just use an on'off valve and youll be golden.

Instead of buying an on'off valve just unscrew the tank 1 and 1/2 full turns. It achieves the same effect by taking all pressure off the pin, and it dosn't cost 10 extra dollars.
