The standard Qloader socket, which is sub-par compared to the custom mounting socket.
I use a SIM-4 with sniper barrel, A2 handguard, Harris bipod, single trigger, Ariakon red-dot scope, Palmer Stabilizer, ACI remote with slide check, and an 88ci 4500psi HPA tank. I also use a SIM-5 with RIS vertical grip, deluxe tac-light, Palmer Stabilizer, ACI remote with slide check, and an 88ci 4500psi HPA tank.
You increase your mounting options greatly.
There are no weaknesses when comparing it to the standard socket.
For all of you current Qloader owners, the custom mounting socket is a must have. For those of you wanting a Qloader but didn't like the mounting capabilities with the standard socket, this will change your mind. There are three mounting brackets included with the custom mounting socket: one that you can attach to the grip frame of your marker, one right angle bracket that you can attach to a cylindrical object on the marker (barrel, foregrip, regulator, etc.), and one straight bracket that is also used for cylindrical objects. The socket itself swivels for even more flexibility when mounting. It also includes two brand new feed tubes, a new accessory kit, and a new elbow. Those are all a big help if you've already butchered the parts you already had (mainly the feed tubes). For the price of $35 I don't see how or why you would go without the custom mounting socket.
If you own a Qloader and need/want more mounting options, you cannot go without the custom mounting socket. For those of you who don't own a Qloader, you might want to check out their website. They have a very nice video of a Qloader handling 30bps.
I don't have much time to write this so I'll be as concise as possible. Strength: This set revolutionizes the concept of qloader. It actually makes it sturdy, strike that, VERY sturdy, aw hell, SOLID AS A FREAKIN' ROCK! I seriously have to work to get it to even swivel on the whatever its mounted on, much less slide or twist.
THIS THING IS A MUST HAVE. Not only does it limit your mounting options only by your imagination, it removes any and all woble in the Q system.
Versatility: You can mount this thing ANYWHERE. Under the tank, in front of the tank, unber the barrel, over the barrel, on the sight rail, next to the sight rail, along side the tank, YOU NAME IT, THIS CAN DO IT!
The CMS also makes the Qloder about an inch to an inch-and-a-half shorter than the stock mount.
If you have a Qloader and don't have a CMS, it's like only having half a qloader - You don't know what you're missing. GET THIS OR I'LL TYPE OBSCENE MESSAGES AT YOU!
Well, with the CMS (custom mounting system) your able to set you q-loader pretty much anywhere on your marker. The extra brackets are made out of steel which is really nice because I would have been really scared of breaking a plastic bracket by hitting it. But even if that would occur, the customer service at AIC is amazing. I broke a part of my CMS and they shipped me the same replacement part twice about 1 day after I mailed them. Didn't cost me a thing either.
Get it if you don't like your current Q-Loader setup or if you want to be creative :)
Increase almost unlimited mount option for Qloader.
I ordered this CMS along with the Qloader. It is good idea because the standard mounting kit only let you mount the Qloader to a vertical or a horizontial round shaft. CMS comes with a varity of metal plate and hardware to mount the Qloader almost anywhere on the gun. You can also change the angle/position of the feeder tube. The original mount socket only allow feed tube be at 10 o'clock or 4 o'clock position.
You should get this if you want to mount the Qloader at exactly where you want it.
