they are alright, if you can get one for under $300 jump on it, otherwise, it's not worth it.

 

Shot quality wise, isn't too great, it's about the same as a geo +, so it isn't bad, but it isn't amazing

 

Efficiency is meh, but as to be expected. Simple bolt engine, easy to fix any problems.

I personally love mine to death, but that's because it's special, not necessarily for any performance reason. However, stick a TechT bolt in a Rev-i and it's an awesome shooter, though some people are dissatisfied with the stock trigger. They feel that the switchblade design makes compromises to be both without really excelling at being either rake or scythe style.

I have one of the 5 or so prototype bodies that DP milled for the 2008 Huntington Beach Open to gauge interest in a new gun, before they changed designs, and to my knowledge it is the only prototype of this design that actually works.

Buy some
This is exactly what marketing guns has come down too. a dick waving contest. You can say all the stuff you want but until you whip it out wave it around and prove it to the world everyone will doubt you. -bigx

Dow 33 or any of its derivatives. I personally use Lurker lube in mine. Does the gun have the gauge back cap in it right now? From the picture, it looks like it has the TechT tool-less back cap.

it is im sorry it wasnt tool less bolt i meant to say back cap. They stopped making them with the gauge and replaced them with the tool less back caps because EVERYONE was losing the 5/16 T handled allen wrench. I dont get it. How do you lose a Giant tool that is only used when taking the bolt out. Even Mike lost his. Face palm... I just facepalmed because there isnt a facepalm emoticon. Facepalm for that too. Face palm for face palming 3 times ........ :blush:

 

Also The previous owner suggested the Techt gun sav. Would you say that would work as a alternative?

That would work fine. All the back caps Rev-is are now coming with look like this:

Where the TechT back caps look like this:

Is that the sexy ocean colors?

 

I actually picked mine up for 425 and it came with the L7 engine and TechT back cap. It's a great feeling marker but ran into problems like everyone else. 

- I have inconsistent FPS like between jumps of 20 and 30.

- I blew out my macro line

- Replaced the RAPS and then started to have leaks out of it.

 

Both at LL6 and Tombstone it stopped working on me. The marker is one of the 1st Gen Rev-I's but I love it when it's working.
