Dead On Paintball X-Core 8 Stage Expansion Chamber Reviews
This expansion chamber is setting new standards. It has a large liquid cell at the bottom and then 8 micro cells on the top. We ask you to compare it to any other chamber on the market. This grip is the first grip that was designed with both CO2 and N2 users in mind.
The X-Core will give more than enough expansion cell area to break up liquid CO2 while still keeping a straight through, low resistance air flow for Nitrogen. Also, the port hole is on the bottom. Most x-chambers have it on the side and you have to get the hole lined up. With the hole in the bottom, you just get a 90 degree connect elbow (same as with a gas-thru foregrip). The best thing about the x-core is its price. It will do a better job than any other chamber on the market but the price is much lower.
Available in Black, Red, Blue, Green and Purple, and Polished Silver.
The Dead On Paintball X-Core 8 Stage Expansion Chamber is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Semi Gloss Black Paint is not too shinny
Needed extra part to make it fit into my gun
I bought this product form action village paintball online. I have bought products form them before and their service is wonderful. I took my time to shop around because I wanted to get the best product for my money. Under the threading specifications of this product it said universal. Thinking that universal meant "will fit every gun" I bought it and some other products form action village. When I went to install it I discovered that the product had 1/4 in threading and my gun had 1/8 in threading. Now I had to go buy a gas fitting to fit my gun. This is not an incredibly big deal but a hassle none-the-less Just a forewarning for Piranha and Kingman users.

Easy to install, operates great, quiet.
This was a great buy for my A-5. I get a lot better gas operation now and the product was a breeze to install. I have had no sound issues through it and fits just fine next to my Grip. Just like any expansion chamber does get extremely cold if you run C02 and shoot a lot. I would recommend putting teflon tape on the threads before installing.
Great product, excellent gas operation, and quiet. I would recommend this to anyone who is in the market for a good expansion chamber.
Clogs up all the pressure so my paintball only went like 10 feet. Also leaks.
At first, I thought it was going to be a pretty good chamber. But then, even though I had the right threading and everything (i even got the chamber re-threaded), the elbow (that connects the micro-line hose) won't even screw in all the way, so it leaks. So then I put some teflon. Actually, I put A LOT of teflon tape to keep it from leaking. When I solved the problem of the leaking, the gun won't even shoot right. The ball only shot like 10 to 20 feet. I don't know if it's the elbows or it's the chamber, but this chamber has been giving me a hard time. Now, after I was about to take it back and get a replacement, the elbow gets STUCK. Now the elbow is completely scratched up because I used pliers. Now I have to find a way to get it out.
I would definitely not recommend this product. I'm not saying it's bad, but maybe there was something wrong with mine. If you do get one of these make sure it's in perfect condition and make sure that you take it to shop if there is anything wrong ( I didn't take mine to a shop, so maybe it was my fault).

Works well even in the winter
Tried it out, works great, velocity is very consistant, more shots per tank, before i used a 20oz co2 on 700 shots, now i get 1200 shots out of a 20oz co2. Looks sweet on my tippy, love it. Go get it you wont be dissapointed. CO2 comes out in gas form not liquid so it does its job, i played a whole day in the winter and not one liquid shot.
Get it its cheap and it works
10 out of 10

I went out this last weekend and laid out about 1,000 rounds with a 20 oz Co2 tank. That's pretty good compared to what I used to get before I had it, and as you can see from my setup, I don't have anything else helping. I don't remember the grip/chamber ever feeling cold, diffinitely didn't freeze. I cut extra notches on the top and bottom of the "guts", to make it flow a little better.
For an inexpensive upgrade, buy this. I don't like having a grip and expansion chamber, so I purchased the verticle adaptor with it, that's only my feeling though. Dollar for dollar, this can't be beat for $20. Just like anything with paintball, you should try it out before you buy.

cheap, consistent, looks good, quality
heavy (like all), not best on market
this is a pretty sweet thing. i tested it out in all sorts of weather it it proves its worth. though there is better, this is the best for the price. it completely takes out spikes and keeps all ur shots consistent and steady. and for the tippmann, it saves a ton of c02. i played through 1000 shots with my 12 oz.

This product is sooo cheap, it just performs like nothing else
occasionally this product will have bad days and make your marker snow like crazy
This is such a good x chamber for the price. I dont know if it is just the chamber i have or they are all like this but occasionally it snows like hell. But it stil helps the consistancy alot. i got mine for 15$ brand new on e-bay.
I would reccomend it to anyone mostly because it is so cheap it is pretty good for the price but if it is just mine that snows i think that everyone should buy one that is running c02 so i am going to give it a 10 assuming that mine has problems

Keeps Liquid out of your valve
Well what an expansion chamber does is gives your liquid co2 more space to expand into a gas. Thus it makes it more effciant and more consistant by keeping liquid out of the valve. Also this is very cheap 19bucks at countypaintball, looks great and serves very well as a foregrip. One thing I will say though is that you *can* use it with nitro I would recomend against using this with nitro and just get a gas thru grip, cause this will only restrict the airflow of nitro. Not to an extreme but it wont help your performance. So if your using co2 this defintely will help your gun run better for not to an expensive price.
If you use co2 this very well could be a great improvement. Couple this with anti sipon and you can get around 5-7 +\- at the chrono on co2 for around 25 dollars. So a great cheap alternative to nitro.

-Does its job
-Bottom hole for fitting
-Not the best X-chamber on the market
This is a really good choice if your looking to spend anywhere from 20-25$$. It does what its supposed to do, but there are better expansion chambers on the market. I chronoed my marker, and with the X-Core my fps changed around 5-10fps, which is pretty good. Also, the fitting goes in the bottom, so its really convenient if you have a 90 degree fitting.
Get this expansion chamber if your on a tight budget, definitely get this. Otherwise maybe spend an extra $15 and get something a lil better. Still overall pretty nice.
its good nice small exchamber
it fit nice on my tippmann
its very nice bc the hole is on the bottom so its easy to run a hose up to the hole and u dont have to line anythign up
its also a very cheap (price wise) xchamber u can easly afford it
Its worth getttting if u want something cheap and effective
