Sticks out further than stock; doesn't match the gun cosmetic. no big deal
I was shooting this morning outback before the upgrade and the balls were flying every which way. After I put this baby on I was able to hit the same mark 3 times from around 150 ft away! I could've went more but I stopped at 3. I can't believe something so cheap and easy to install improved the gun that much! If you can find it grab it!! I hear you get more shots per tank too! I have the lpr at 5 turns; stock recommended. I dont have a chrono though will be getting one in the future.
1999 Angel LCD (not exactly spool valve but fast, unfortunately no eyes)
I'm a hardcore poor gun whore, ten (10) markers and counting:
3 WGP Autocockers (2 E-Cockers)
3 AGD AutoMags
2 JT E-Excellerators
1 VL E-marker
1. Remove bolt without tools
2. Lowers LPR
3. More Efficient
1. Costs $50
2. Is not made any more (EXTREMELY RARE)
I had this installed by Badlands Paintball in Vancouver (www.badlandspaintball.com)
Gun Tech / Assistant Manager Chris Hartinger could not get the DM4 marker to fire with the Hybrid Extended Bolt Guide installed, but it cycled reliably and chronographed in around the 280's with the LPR set at three (3) turns out!!!
If you can find this, BUY IT and USE IT.
It is both a cosmetic upgrade as well as a serious performance enhancement!
The Efficiency Sleeve is installed as mentioned and I am running the LPR at 3 turns out, so I am very impressed by that and would give the rating a full Ten, but it only rates a Seven (7) because the Extended Bolt Guide doesn't work (yet).
I know that EVERY marker is different, but you purchase the product expecting it to work out, ya know? Especially when you have spent a lotta coin on a nice marker (DM4) and expect a precision product from Hybrid Technologies to work.
7 out of 10
