I think the Expansion chamber is a very good investment for how cheap it is. Some say akward placement of inlet but seems lines up perfectly on my gun and is completely out of the way. It feels good and works well. It is great for a beginneer or even an advanced player who does not want to break his wallet.
Definetly buy one, it is a great investment for the amound of money.
PMI Piranha BL VF G3
PMI Perfect Expansion Chamber or PMI Gas Thru Grip
14" SPAA Barrel
32 Degrees Remote
20 oz CO2
Works well in cold weather
Mine leaks badly
Poor place for line to exit
I had a problem from day one with mine. I had a huge leak at the top of the chamber where it inserts into the ASA. I changed the oring, changed the ASA, and tried to tighten the connection overall, but it still leaks. When I put my bottomline or gas thru grip on, there are no leaks, so I know it is the x chamber. Still can't figure it out!
I would recommend this for those who want to keep their CO2 from freezing your gun, but make sure it is a good one! If you can, buy a Palmer Stabilixer, they work great!
32 Degrees Expansion Chamber.(my brother had one and it broke the first day he used it)
Pro/Carbine with 32 Degrees Ice Cold barrel, JCS folding combat stock with RVA, vertical adapter with 6 stage expansion chamber, ben tippmann raised sight rail with red dot sight, 32 degrees drop forward, gel grips.
It does its job well and is reliable.
I have used this expansion chamber on two guns: a Spyder for 2 years and a Pro/Carbine for two years. It has worked well on both and I have never had any problems. My Pro/Carbine had velocities ranging anywhere from 300 fps to 240 fps, but as soon as I put this expansion chamber on it cleared right up. It works well in cold weather and increased my range significantly.
Overall, it is a very reliable chamber that does its job well and won't give you any problems. I've been using mine for 4 years and have nothing to complain about. Buy it.

Pirahna e-force r6, with phat pipe 14" barrel, vert exp/reg adaptor, PMI perfect exp. chamber. Custom drop forward by brotherhood paintball products. and soon a microline
Excellant flow rate
Gets very cold which is unusual even with most expansion chambers
I have been useing this chamber for about two years and it still works even though it is used and still works which is good. It has a good flow rate and my valve hasn't ever frozen over. It has a good feel to it and it's inlet port is at a nice height when though it might be odd for some players with a smaller marker. It has never given me any problems and i would suggest it to other players as well.
Its a firm exp. chamber that has taken all my abuse and i am a hardcore player. Its a good buy for a good price.
I got this X-chamber because the vertical setup with a 20oz tank didn't work out all that well. This was pretty cheap and I always seem to be pressed for money so I decided to get it. I put it on screw in the co2 and it leaks. Took it off and oiled the o-ring no more problem after that. Another thing I noticed is that where the line screws in isn't in a very good place it should be in the bottom rather than the side because at times it does become uncomfortable. It doesn't seem to expand the co2 very efficiently but it does expand it somewhat. Yet, im not sure about other x-chambers but, when you let out long strings of paint it begins to snow. A positive is that it is a little easier to hang on to than the co2 tank was.
If you are poor and looking for something to hold on to try this. If not go for something more expensive.
-Very good looking
-No co2 velocity spikes since i got it
-ill get back to you
This is a great expansion chamber as far as i can see, it looks awesome and takes the place of your gas-thru grip also. If you are thinking about gettin a gas-thru grip... definatly check this thing out, you will not regret it. I connected myne with a metal hose to a pmi bottomline adapter and it looks awesome and as far as i can tell it works awesome. i would recommend this product to anyone looking for any kind of gas thru grip/expansion chamber
I would definatly recommend this product because of the above reasons... 10 all the way
Smart Parts 10'' All-American
PMI "Perfect" 6-stage X-chamber

Get More Shots per Cylinder
Threads May Sometimes Give You trouble
I am extremely glad I aquired this for my gun. It Has payed for itself in savings on Co2, ad nowmy shots are much more efficient. This X-chamber is also very comfortable making it easier on the hands to play.
The one thing i did have trouble with was the GasPort. It did leak but a little teflon tape and a little more tightening fixed it right up.
I HIghlyrecomend this X-chamber. It Will pay for itslef in Co2 savings within the first 4-5 times you play. If You're considering getting an X-chamber Make it this one.
