The Lower half of the reg is a beautiful stainless steel. The upper portion of the reg is aluminum which allows it to be anodized to the color of your gun. A Thumb Adjustable Quick Twist is included for easy adjustments over a chrono. An out-put gauge is included so that you know your regulated pressure. This is important to know so that you can make sure the Gen-X is operating efficiently. Finally ANS used there patented Phase II valve face which allows unsurpassed recharge times.
The ANS Gen X is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
My STO and a couple other cockers...then again, a cocker is a cocker
My gen x with j&j 2 piece, shocktech front pnuematics, superfly bolt, shocktech dropforwad, 68 ci 4500psi nitro, jack hamemr reg, dye sticky grips, benchmark trigger frame
new barrel, "stock" is nice but the gun is so much better with a better barrel
Fast, accurate. I choose it over my sto and tricked wgp all the time, just get a new barrel and the gun is perfect, let alone if ya wanna upgrade
Not the best fro upgrading, i wouldnt reccomend messing with it unless ya know what you're doing, upgrading and all, cause i almost had mine completely f***ed up, but got it fixed (thank god) luckily its good right off the shelf, no upgradings needed.
The thing is heavy, especially with a 68ci luggin it around and sliding can get difficult if ur not careful. dropforward u'll need to balance it out too
All-in-all a great gun for people who dont bother with upgrading and dont mind a slightly heavier gun, fast, accurate, quiet...hell, its yet another great cocker
i also have a 2000 cocker with a benchmark frame, trigger job, and a boomstick. it looks cooler cuz it has a blue-black fade job but performance wise, my gen-X is far supirior
ANS Gen-X Minicocker w/benchmark frame, trigger job, smart parts 12'' AA barrel, ANS venturi bolt, nitro duck 68/3k
nothing really. i put my 14'' boomstick on it a couple times and it kicked ass
everything. trigger pull is comprable to that of a 'pulse when you get it set up right. i can shoot just as fast as i could when i had the angel LCD (gun wastes paint and cant hit a damn thing, or maybe its just the player behind the gun getting too carried away, either way id take a cocker any day) accuracy is insane. awesome milling job. gun balances very well with a full hopper and a nitro duck 68/3k Gen-X reg is impossible to outshoot and starve for air
3-way leaks occasionally but this is easily corrected by tapping the timing rod with your finger. i dont know why this stops it but it does. Gen-X reg works great although if you run co2 it will get unbarably cold. this doesnt affect performance at all. it doesnt freeze up you just need to get some gloves
this gun rapes well worth the $1000 you spend on gun/tank/hopper
- the gun is extremely accurate with the all american barrel
-very quiet. so quiet that people can't hear you shoot at them which is an always accepted bonus.
-gen-x 2 regulator...
-all ANS stuff.
-mine has vertical feed. most don't though.
high rate of fire if you know how to shoot a cocker.
-very smooth trigger pull.
- you cannot really do too much to the gun as far as upgrades go because of the fear of offsetting the timer. this is true with any cocker though. it just sucks when the timer goes off. but the gun is already pretty maxed out as far as hardware goes and performance. the only upgrades you need are just for looks.
- it's pretty heavy. about 10-12lbs with a 4500psi nitro tank. doesn't seem like much but when you're playing for about 4 hours running around, it gets to you.
i would recommend this gun very strongly to an experienced player. the gun will never really let you down unless you do something to the front block or something. with this gun you definately have the upper hand in firefights and stuff.
This gun is a fascinating piece of work by ANS. They made this gun hard to upgrade right out of the box...even though it's fun upgrading, it's got everything great on it already....the qucik fire 45 frame, vertical feed, A.N.S Quick pull venturi bolt, the A.N.S Gen X Reg, and more...I can't believe how sweet this gun is...BUY ONE!
The only this bad about this gun is that sketchy 3D Phase II barrel...otherwise the gun is great...if you get this gun, all you have to do is get a 12 in custom products barrel or a J&J Ceramic barrel and you'll be shooting marballizer like you've never shot paint before...
Do you want one? Did I persuade you enough? If you happen to find one, you better get it now...they are going fast...I guarentee happiness with this gun... You'll be throwing paint so fast...it might even catch up to the elecs...
'99 verticle feed A.N.S. Gen-X 'cocker
very good marker. shoots very fast and very accurate. it has a good solid feel no plastic parts here. the trigger pull is nice. short, snappy, and fairly light. trigger pull about 3mm in length. and the marker cycles fast.i got mine in a verticle feed setup with only a 9-volt feeder and i out shoot it easily. velocity is adjusted through the regulator.you cannot adjust it's velocity any other way. there is NO velocity adjustor behind the cocking rod. need higher fps dial the reg a bit higher. but don't go over 300psi. if your at 300psi and shooting low still just a quick and easy change of the spring and you can get up to speed. my f.p.s. always stays 285 give or take 3 fps @ 250psi. a part of being a consistant player is having consistant equipment and if this is one thing it is consistant. this is a good marker for a front player for snap shooting. or a back player for layin on the spray. i love this marker.
nothing bad here! well maybe a nicer barrel but with all the other stuff that this markers got i really shouldn't complain.
once you get the marker the only thing that you have to upgrade is a barrel. it comes with one and for a "stock barrel" (made by a.n.s) its good but i still suggest one. i get about 600-650 shot out of a 47c.i. n2 tank. which is good i think. how does this marker compare to other 'cockers? well it's not a free-flow. but it doesn't carry that $1200 price tag.but it is much better than all the cockers that i have seen in it's price range.the STO is toylike to me. i gues it's the plastic grips. and all the other ones came with out regs, barrels, air adapters and such so thats just more money you have to spend before you can play. the Gen-x is ready to rock out of the box. just ad air or CO2. and like i said before that you get a lot of bells and whistles for your money. would i recomend it? if $700-$800 is what you want to spend - hell yeah!! it's a great gun for it's price. and remeber that you get what you pay for. with this marker you get that and a bit more.
