The Bullet Drop Forward moves your tank 5.75 inches forward and 2.5 inches down. The main feature is the industries smallest compact triple sealed ON/OFF valve actuator that depresses the tank pin valve for air or releases pin to shut air off. The Bullet Drop Forward also includes an extra port for a gauge if you need it. The Bullet Drop Forward has mounting holes for the standard (#10 - 3/4 apart) or staggered mounting holes for Spyders. Will work with all CO2 tanks and screw-in nitrogen tanks. Color choices Bright Red, Bright Blue, Bright Green, Bright Purple, Bright Black and Polished Silver. All come with a two tone polished ON/OFF knob except Black and Silver.
The Dead On Paintball Bullet Drop Forward is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

-Improves gun & looks sweet
-Requires mod of stock screws
This is a great drop, it neutralizes the weight of the tank to right below the grip. Perfect for the 20 oz CO2 tank or any nitro tank up to 68 C.I. This drop also improves game play because the holding the gun now feels more comfortable and not having to "fight" with the tank in the way. Go and get this, remember that the threads are 1/8 NPT, not the standard spyder threads
Great drop, highly recommend getting this if you don't want a remote or have to worry about getting the tank in your way. Just remember to unscrew the on/off slowly or the o-rings inside are at risk to blowing out.

Comfort, the tank isnt in you way (even w/ my huge 88ci)
None, it even matched my anodizing perfectly
This Drop forward is great. I was going to sell my 88ci b/c it put my gun to far away from my body but this drop forward forward fixed that problem perfectly. Now my gun is at a much more agressive possition and has a much smaller profile. Another great feature is the on/off vale. Now instead of having to fight to get a full tank on or off I can turn the valve off and twist the tank on or off w/ ease. This is a great buy for $40 (Delmarva Paintballs price) and is just as nice is the more expensive phsyco ballistics.
If your tank is too big dont sell it just buy this drop forward!
Got this to replace my FBM drop (crappy dovetail). Did not realize it was soooo big. THe drop is fairly average, but the forward is out of control. If you have a rear cocking marker, this will make the back of your tank almost flush with the beaver tail/cocked bolt! It does balance the marker setup very well, but at the cost of sholdering your marker comfortably.
Just brings it in too close for me.
Great DF if you want the marker real tight and well balanced.

Sometimes needs oil on the adapter, can make gu a little heavier
Ok, I bought one of these thinking it might not be so good.............. well I was wrong. I put this on my gun and loved it right away. It looks awsome and feels great(except for the extra weight). Besides the weight which doesnt bother me much, I didnt have any problems with it. I got mine used so I had to oil the valve and it works fine now.
EDIT: After getting some more experiance with paintball and trying different things I have to say this. At first a drop seems like a good idea and im not gonna argue at first i loved them. Then I got a new marker and put a rail on it and it felt sooo much better. Now I cant even use a drop.. So Ill say this, when starting out this is a good item to have to work your way up.... after that its a no go.
I HIGHLY recommend this drop to anyone new whos looking to upgrade there marker for comfort and efficiancy. if you can get past the slight variation in weight, then its a VERY good drop. Look for a picture of my gun coming soon to see what I mean.

Drops tank down a lot. Very comfortable feel.

This drop is a very good drop for those who want the tank down below the gun. Nothing wrong with the drop at all. Puts the tank where I want it. The tank's weight is also centered below the gun. Perfect to make the gun nice and compact for all players. I would recomend this to all.
Buy this drop it you dont want your tank to be all over the place. Keeps the tank below the gun and the weight centered.

Maybe too big?
I got this drop for my new Autococker because I liked the drop on my Spyder (Phat flame drop), but it just didn't feel big enough, and with a new 68/3000 Nitrogen tank, I would need a bigger drop. I was pretty impressed with this drop. I like the degassing feature. It makes firing out the gun even easier, with no shots held in my macro line. The balance of my gun was very nice with this drop and the tank mounted. Besides that, it pretty much does its job as it should.
A few complaints before I wrap it up. The On/Off knob can get very stiff when the marker is gassed up, and subsequently, hard to turn. My other problem was that it didn't include mounting hardware, but since I have a bajillion screws laying around my house, I was able to get it set up.
Some people might complain about the drop being too big, and I must say, I can see their point. This drop is absolutely enormous. But if it's too big, don't use it.
If you like a humongous drop-forward, this one is a pretty nice way to go. The On/Off feature is nice (no more blown out O-rings), and it balances the gun well. If you prefer smaller drops, stay away.

unscrew the on/off slowly or risk breaking the O-ring on the drop.
This is a really nice drop forward. I had originally ordered the dead on paintball pro drop forward, but they sent me this one instead. its cool though cause i like the looks of this one better and i like having the on/ off. It was very nice of them to have it come with holes for the standard bottom line and for the spyders offset holes. The only thing you have to remember is to take it nice and slow when unscrewing the on/ off (for co2 users).
I definetly recommend this product for anyone looking to move there tank a good distance forward. Im very happy with this drop.

Big big drop down and forward, it moves your tank up a lot.
This is one cool drop. It drop your tank and moves it forward to a confortable position and it makes your gun look really really cool. 3 of my friends have this and it makes their gun look pretty cool and the ability to turn the air on and off is great.
You Should get it it you want the ability to turn your air on and off and to drop your tank forward.

Well, I WAS very happy with this drop forward, until that fateful day that one of the O-rings broke, which happened to be the one on the plunger. Well, thinking I could unscrew the knob and get to it, how wrong I was...
The knob is held in place by a set screw...mine was in there so tight that when I tried to break it free, I couldn't. Figuring that it was lock-tite holding it in, I tried the "heating it up" trick to try and break it loose, but the screw is so small (thus using a small allen wrench) that the allen wrench itself was stripping.
Continuing trying to get this screw out, (I figured if I didn't try, it was garbage at that point anyway) I drilled out the screw...to my fault I drilled just a little to far and ruined the shaft that the plunger goes into.
So to make a long story short, if Dead-On at least attempted to make it easy to get to their O-rings, I could have easily replaced it and gotten on to playing. Since getting to the o-rings is through a small-a** set screw that requires a tiny-a** allen wrench and is in there so tight that you can't remove it, I give this product a bad review.
Judging by other reviews, you seem to take a chance on a case by case basis of whether or not this product will work. Since the chances seem to be high of getting a faulty product, I don't recommend it. But hey, if you're one of those people who likes taking risks, this product might be worth your while.
