In Topic: Ninja carbon 77ci 4500 with v2 regulators COVER?

16 May 2015 - 05:09 PM

 

sorry my friend got a dye rino cover for his tank and it fit. just go on ans and look in the tank covers.

The 68ci Rhino cover will probably fit on a 77SL tank, but not on a traditional 77, because it is longer than a 68. I have a 68ci tank, an original 77ci tank, and the 68ci Rhino cover; and the Rhino cover does not fit on the 77.

 

 

slightly off-topic but just to confirm, any 68 ci tank cover should fit the 77 sl tanks (i have old 68, 68 sl and 77 sl).


In Topic: Autococker tank reg question

no, just use a standard high pressure output (850 psi) regulator. the trilogy's are not that adjustable...kind of the point, was an easier-to-use autococker. if you're having wild velocity swings over the chronograph, the tank reg may need to be rebuilt. if you are using a c02 tank, there's not much you can do, as you've said it's not worth adding a hpr.

 

i would look more at the barrel and paint anyway. use quality paint (valken graffiti / redemption is pretty consistent) and slightly underbore for best results. or just throw on a cp .685 and call it a day.


In Topic: X7 phenom barrel

I would get the deadly wind with freak insert compatibility and barrels don't really make a barrel quieter. Its not a huge difference in sound on most barrels.

 

there can be a very large difference in sound depending on the barrel! it's a matter of length, material and porting.

 

in regards to the op, both the deadlywinds and j&j are good for what they are. they are both quiet, lightweight barrels. if you like the carbon look of the null, go for it. if you want to save some cash, grab the j&j.


In Topic: Etek 5

16 May 2015 - 04:54 PM

I have not even touched an etek 5, so take my advice with a grain of salt but yes, the etek 5 appears to be a great marker. The etek line has been arguably the most reliable gun line ever, and planet is a great company to get backed up by. The etek 5 appears to be a good gun, but from previous experience in older eteks, they are not the quietest/smoothest markers out there

 

...and here is where your advice falls short. even without touching one, if you've looked at the videos posted on them you would know the etek 5 is a different animal than previous eteks and egos. the shot quality has been compared to the lv1, and rightfully so. the tigger feels "loose", with it having just the return magnet instead of the magnet and spring. it works fine though. very comtorble in the hands as there is no lpr in the way.

 

as to the op, frankly you can get anything these days and it will be just fine. axe / mini gs are solid choices, the etek 5 is very nice if you can swing it. i've heard good things about the jt impulse oled as well.

any hpa tank with high pressure output (usually 800-850 psi) will work just fine on the a-5.
