In Topic: HK Army TFX Loader

10 March 2015 - 09:42 AM

Had one on my gun at Extravaganza in the booth - got to take it apart and handle it in my room overnight.

Didn't see even one thing I would have changed.

There is a tension adjuster, set at it's loosest point it shouldn't break paint. 

If indeed it is easy on brittle paint this loader is as good as anything. My Rotors can be hard on paint. Also this one looks easier to clean.

I offered to buy the one I had but they didn't have stock for inventory. Steve Nobi told me I could buy the loaner I had but then they swapped it out for a different color that didn't have internals, and then he wasn't around so I could buy the demo back.

Anyway I will buy one as I think it looks great and at least - in my room - the mechanics are right.

While it isn't a new idea -  a Gear loader where floor moves - it is a very solid design and the shell had plenty of reinforcement in all the right places. The tray for the ball is even cut a little right at the edges so the body can be the very narrowest possible.

Other comments also that echo these and some of the comments from players that started out doubtful. 


AND - despite what some that have never given the gun a fair chance say - the lower operating pressure of this gun has an even better shot pattern.

Find someone with a Alien and just shoot it compared to other more expensive guns, at about 120 to 150 feet you will see their shot drop and the Alien Deception visibly carries flatter longer.  

Deception is something special in both shot feel and quality.

This falls somewhere in the realm between lies, magical optimism, and confirmation bias.  Physics will not let the bolt deliver 


But I'm sure the Deception will end up being a loved stacked-tube poppet

The physics are the same as hitting a pool shot below the center of the ball. 

As I said - shoot the gun, it's just that simple, shoot the gun

As far as loved stacked tube - thank you - add that this one is special. It's  not the 10 iteration of a Matrix or even leverage, delay and extension by a lever. It's decidedly more.

Wow, a mod from pbnation said it so it must be true! I don't care how badly you want this sweep bolt to work, it won't. Your gun cannot defy the laws of physics.

Maybe you should get one and shoot it first - First strike rounds work - they too add spin, just  more. Shoot one, then your opinion matters.

I set up quite tight perimeters, but get a box of paint and put it on a table. Then hold the barrel flat on the box - do it for other guns. Have someone down field to see where they land. 

It add a little distance and makes for a flatter narrower shot. Slight oval and bit flatter shot and noticeable distance. Fight has been because others claimed that I said it was a huge improvement - it's worth adding the feature in the gun - not a feature that costs that much.

I don't understand why anyone wouldn't want it. No one has ever said that the Sweep takes away from the shot - and most everyone who has shot the gun says as good as or better than any gun they have owned. Yet those that have never shot the gun still want to come on and hate on it. 

Now a couple of vids show a new double stacked as quiet and as calm as any gun - including any spool - this becomes a reason to again post hate. Useless. .

Guns are at anodizer being polished. I'll get one to Mike first thing so TechPB can review. Also promised one to Hustle for review. You will start to see players commenting on their guns in November
