I have had these Pnumatics for a little while now, and I have to say that they are easly the best I have used, I have my timing set so close, and with the ANS 90* frame, and QEV's, the gun in litterally walkable (in short bursts of course), and I have no wories of choping because the gun easly pinches paint rather than choping it!!!
I shot my gun again today just because, and I completely fell in love with it again, my electo might have to go on the shelf for the next tourny, this gun preforms, and is just as reliable as my electro!
I definatly recomend this product to anyone who wants to have a very high end preforming mech, rather than a ediocre preforming one! They look great, and they preform just as great!!!
Pre-Assembled, Easy to Attach, Quailty Craftsmanship, Durable, Inexpensive
I bought this item after I took a nasty "Bunkering Hit" to my sotck front block. The person must have been shooting hot, because the hoses were ruptured, and paint got inside of everything. I bought this one based on the price. It was easy to install, and easy to set the timing. I didn't care for the "Mini" ram, but all in all..... it is a quality product.
If you are looking for a "Better than Stock" front block, then here is your solution: buy the A.N.S. Front Block Kit (mine came with the "Jackhammer 2" LPR).
ANS pnumatics are not only nice looking and in a variety of colors they perform well and work forever the 3 way has a smooth short pull the jackhammer has nice contour and adjustable knob the ram performs very well but I just dont like the fact you can only get it in stainless yea it durable but it doesnt match the rest since it cant be anodized
If you are thinking of getting ANS pnumatics you will not be disapointed due to its capabilities of high performance.

great for a mech cocker, reliable, durable ,adn great preformance
This is the best front block kit on the market for a mech cocker. I have no doubt that the ANS would out preforem any pneu's. the ram is fast the lpr is one of the best on the market and the 3 way is one of the shortest around.
Go ANS if you have a mech cocker they will out preform all the compotion and give you a high rate of fire.
Excellent. Easy to maintain, very flashy, easily adjustable
Love it! Not the cheapest overhaul you can do, but it's well worth the money. I have had a couple problems with the outfit though. The interior bore of my 3-Way was too large and it leaked uncontrollable. I was able to get a replacement part through the company I purchased it from and everything has been fine since.
Just recently had the O-Ring in the Jackhammer II go out on me, but it's a very easy fix and a nice design overall.
The only complaint I have it that the nipples on the 3-Way and the Jackhammer are VERY VERY fragile, and will easily snap if too much pressure it put on them. If you have the old stock "swivel nipple" that was on the Stock Ram, it will fit nicely on the side of the Jackhammer II and will greatly improve it's durability.
Outstanding action! Another fine ANS product and the cornerstone of any custom cocker.

Short trigger, fast, regulator is easy to adjust
Block bolt is solid.
3-way is touchy.
Disassembly will ruin the ram, no rebuilding.
Ram is quick and responsive even at lower psi. My ram psi is low enough that paint won't chop when I short stroke the trigger (even with stock hammer and valve springs).
Trigger pull is shorter and hard to short stroke. Good shot groupings, distance (but I think thats more in the timing)and consistency over the chrono +/- 5 fps average. The speed of these pneumatics are only limited by the trigger speed. I out run my viewloader with ease now, which actually causes a chopping problem. The adjustable reg ads a great level of convience to the operation of your marker.
3 way (4 way, whatever) can be tricky
-jackhammer psi too high = trigger won't return well
-jackhammer psi too low = 3 way "O" rings leak
The 3-way shuttle has to be adjusted perfectly and well lubricated to stop that little hissing leak. Sometimes the 3-way will start to leak (very slightly) and just stop again (regardless of trigger position) for no apparent reason. Out of the box 3way is set up for a slide trigger so hoses need to be reversed if you have a hinge. BE CAREFUL!! The barbs don't use top hats so If you stretch the hoses where the barb holds it (like I did) they will leak like crazy when you put them back on. I ended up cutting 1/16"-1/8" off the hose length so they would fit tight and not leak.
The front banjo bolt is not hollow all the way through so it's not a volumizer. That kinda sucks!
Co$t is high. Looks great. Weighs 1/2 lb on the dot. Great reflex and speed.
Works better than stock pneumatics gets 8/10 because I have little experience with other pneumatics .
Added ANS QEV's which shortened trigger pull by almost half , freakin' rips!
Added Shocktech Bomb 3-way, so far only slightly better than ANS 3-way.
After close to 2 years use; and only God knows how many cases later, the ram threads seperated from the ram and stayed in the block. Good thing I don't use loktite.

A stock front end on an 2k3 autococker and another shocktech front end and that really sucked
2003 Black Gloss Nast Impulse with:
-STD magnetic trigger
-vertical MAX FLO Reg
-68ci 4500psi Pure energy tank with Air America 5000psi gauge
-Psycho Ballistics Drop Forward with cradle
-Freak Barrel soon to get whole freak set
-and any thing else that would be on a nasty impulse standard
VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY efficent
the gun tends to need cleaning when it is shot in the front end area
The front end kit is very very well built and it allows for maximum [performance and many other things that allow it to helpo your autococker run awesomelyh and that is one thing that you need on an autococker I sold my ANS GX-3 and thois was the best front end that I have ever played with so BUY IT BUY IT AND AGAIN BUY IT
This front end kicks serious butt and you shoudl pay the money for the front end that you want and i promise you that this is the one that you want i sweree to you.
the adjustble jackhammer 2 is very nice and i would reccommend this to anyone
there is nothing bad about this product it looks good on my gun
the ans pakcage looks good on your gun and works even better the jackhammer 2 is very adjustable and work great , cant stop saying how great this product is.....there is nothing bad about this product it looks good on my gun and works well i love this thing and its just as good as my palmer front pneus, this has a high resale value and ans did a very good job on this product
this is a reasonably priced item and works very very well .

Very adjustable with the Jackhammer II reg, very short 3-way, snappy ram, set cycles well, once adjusted there are no leaks and it is very efficient. I don't have the ANS gas block, i have a custom block, but the ANS one is very good as far as pressure and flow. People complaining about leaks need to either learn how to maintain their equipment or sell it.
Nothing bad that I have found. I am a marker tech, and I recommend this product to anyone.
Very good product, made by a very good company. Kudos to ANS for their pneus.

Cycles so fast and the 4-way is shorter than stock but if your going to get a hindge get a bomb. External adjustements can be done on the LPR thats nice to have. Looks great, people say they have 4-way leaks but i haven't had one yet. Hard to put on so i didn't put it one, laziness is also a factor in that. Got mine in red to match my marker but you can get it in a huge selection.
People say it leaks but i haven't had problems with that, hard to put on. People also say ANS is not that great of a company, but i havne't had any problems with the front kit or my ANS inline reg. PRICE IS HUGE ON THIS, i 130 man i had to throw out 160 for it. im thinking 130 is wishful thinking.
Buy it if you don't want to waste time building your own custom front kit. Works just as well as other ones but the rock and bullet have advantages over the ANS LPR and 4-way. Still get out there and get this if you have the money.
