First impressions, marker is really light. Quality I give 7 out of 10. Gas through grip is not cheap foam and its actually nice and sturdy. Trigger Frame grips screws are not machined but are more of a seft tap, but does hold tight. First use will be this weekend with the View Loader Revolution C.A.T. and HPA tank. I can definatly tell that C02 is not good for the internals for this blowback.
EDIT: the viewloader is okay, but noisy and since semi mode is really the only thing she uses. Proto Primo will work just fine as a hopper.
next to my ACS
We hooked up a Pure Energy 50CI 4500 PSI Tank that didnt even add much more weight to the marker.
At the chrono, the stock spring would not make the marker go past 240FPS. My Spyder was at 260-270 and I chopped 2 balls during the day. Paint was not the best though we were shooting the fields econo paint..not that greatest but decent.
No Chops whatsoever we put about 1000 balls through it.
Stock Barrel was okay but 10 inches you cant really get the range playing defense. We were going up against rentals in our party which were Mech Piranahs.
after 10 games only needed one refill on air just incase, but the marker was very gas efficient and could of lasted the whole 1000 balls without a refill.
Changes I would do first, get a stock Spyder spring and cut it to size to match the stock Stryker length..and install a longer spring guide. I will have to look into that more but I think the stock one is really small.
#2 Better Barrel..
#3 As part of the lower quality the stock Velocity adjuster is a plastic composite built part. I have a metal one from a 07 Xtra that I want to use to replace it but I am not sure if the retaining pin will match up..
Any questions let me know..no haters please this is a marker for my wife to use whenever I play private with friends.
