A-5 with everything upgraded but no weird stocks or annoying recon style barrels that dont work....

And soon to have, and looking forward to get a NAUGHTY DOG FREESTYLE!! WOOOHA
Strengths: No Leaky
Never had one problem
Never "Drops off"
Weaknesses: None, never ever had one small problem ever
Review: The thing i like about this is that the Cup seal ACTUALLY FITS ON THE SPING!!!

The black magic one u need to sand down a little which is a biotch!
( iv tired 2 different black magic cup seals, and 2 different springs.....)

For one thing, the mac dev value and cup seal do not leak.... at all! wuwu

The consistency is little lower i have found than the vapor value, but its very small.. and since i do have both, i found that id rather take one that doesn't leak!

U can say to me.. oh but vapor said no leak guaranteed.. well i call up NW paintball, and hate to say it but there CS just sucks.. very hard to deal with, they are one small company and they try but, id rather not deal with them... ended up buying a new cup seal from the place i got the vapor value from, but still had cup seal problems... weird

My problem was it was leaking around the seal and made my gun just shoot poop, it would just go like 20 feet and hit the ground... if i took off the lpr and then put it back in, it would sometime fix the problem but come back if my psi was lower than 1000, very strange, never had that problem one time with the Mac Dev one.

With the LP kit from Mac dev, sonic lpr... with the mac dev value that combo is very stick.. makes your consistency very very very steady.. here some hard cold facts. i did at the range...

My gun complete.. look up at what i got for upgrades
299,299,298,300,300,300,298,297,298,299

With just the Vapor value (when it worked) in and stock lpr here is the results
290,294,290,296,290, 287,290,294,299,290

Here is the vapor value with the Sonic LP kit system
292,293,299,293,294,295,294,291,294,299

And well we all know the consistency of the stock one.. not bad.. but not even close to this, both these values are ALOT better on gas to.. no need to test out the stock value..

Conclusion: Mac Dev Value > Vapor Value > Stock one.

if u dont have the money stock one will be ok for now.. i would must rather put on a Mac Dev Value, then latter get the sonic lpr made by mac dev too.. it really does make a difference!

All in all.. id much rather take mac dev, but vapor is way better than stock as well... just my thoughts! Hope this helps!

Products Used:
stock valve
not as good
Marker Setup: bushmaster, RED valve, gladiator, sonic asa, sonic lpr, sonic frame.
Strengths: the product really gives the marker a crisp feel. you can practically feel the air whizzing through the gun everytime you shoot. it really brings down kick. the gun feels like it's popping when you shoot a ball. The valve never leaks when you get low on air like the stock one did.
Weaknesses: buzzed a bit when i first got it. then I started to liek the buzz, then the valve got worn in and it went away and it just feels good now.
Conclusion: really nice feel and high flow. my gun operates at under 200 psi shooting 270. real nice product

Strengths: High flow, precise milling, just about everything that is good in a valve, this thing has
Weaknesses: If you are not careful the orings on the vavle will cut themselves as you put it in the gun. I didn't do this, but i just noticed that if i was in a hurry it could have went bad.
Conclusion: Best vavle out there for the BM2k and not sure about the cocker version yet, i haven't seen one in action. If you want to get a low cost upgrade for your gun get the RED vavle, but i wouldn't recommed it if you don't have a good after market reg. It will improve preformence and it's a MACDEV product so it is very well made.
