These Expansion Chambers are unique in the way CO2 is distributed. It enters the bottom chamber and travels through a series of diamond-shaped cones where the liquid and air are mixed evenly, giving a more consistent flow of pressure to the valving of the marker. Unique to its design, the housing works in any position, even if inverted for remote set-up or crawling situations. If excess liquid is pulled through the system due to rapid firing rates, the diamond-shaped cones act as a centrifuge, slinging excess liquid outward to be recycled through the system.
The ACI Sub-Zero 6 Stage Expansion Chamber is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
great for stopping liquid, great feel as a foregrip (i still use it, even though i run nitro because i like the feel of it), rotating housing for optimum hose positioning
nothing really, kind of long?
good if you run co2, cold temps or not. but get a anti-siphon too, for goodness sakes, or you're gonna make your front hand freeze.
i used it with regular co2 tank on my automag (notorious for dislike of liquid) never got liquid, no matter how fast i shot (even shooting it shooting it straight down to suck liquid into the x-chamber. i would get bolt stick though because of the cold co2 vapor. never ruined a o-ring like liquid does, though. my gun was so cold, my dye grip frame was freezing cold too
this expansion chamber is amazing! i bought one for my TL Plus and it performed oustanding. It's very gas efficient and the pressure stays stable. It incresed the accuracy and consistancy on my spyder
If you use it for a front grip it sometimes comes lose and ypu have to tighten it, but that is no big problem. Besides that it works just fine
if you own a spyder or any marker that takes CO2 I recommend that you get one of these. i bought mine for 50 bucks at a local field and got every bit of my money back. I gave a ten because i think that this little accesory is very handy and out performed many expansion chambers that i have seen
It's awesome with my TL Plus. It greatly increaces CO2 efficiency, and keeps the gun from firing snow.
Nothing really. It only made my gun better and it's cheap.
If your think about getting an expansion chamber, get this one. It works great, and for around $40 is pretty cheap. It is a must have for TL Plus owners because the so-called "mini-expansion chamber" it comes with is fake. I would reccommend it to everyone.

Does exactly what it is supposed to do; expand the liquid CO2 to the gaseous state and provide more bang for your tank size. It is also very reliable and durable in every aspect. Mine is a little scratched after 4 years of play but thats a sign that it has been working. One of the best out there. It maybe a little big for some people but Im not what you'd call small (offensive/defensive lineman). Works great for my Spyders.
I can't really find anything that would make any other product better. If you have a Spyder and have snow (especially on the TL Plus) this will fix that in a snap. Excellent product.
This is a must have if you decided to get an X-Chamber and you are running on CO2. You save so much gas with this you can shoot @1800 shots with a 16oz. I love the feel of it. It is much better than the gas thru I had before.
Get it if you want an x-chamber. Don't pay over $40 for it. I got it for $25 so I'm happy with it. I'm probably getting a Palmer Stabilizer to upgrade but this was a lot cheaper. If you don't have $90 for a CO2 Reg. get this, it will help with gas consumption.

I bought this expansion chamber thinking it would help me out a lot. When I got it I installed it and shot frosties for the first hundred shots. After that I would shoot frostie after every 10 shots. I thought I had it installed wrong so I took it off took apart everything put it all back together and it still didn't work. It didn't do anything for me except maybe a forgrip.
Don't buy this. Save your money and get a Palmer Stablilizer
