Hack of a lot of fun to shoot

This is a very fun gun to shoot, but there are a few minor issues with how it is configured IMO. Firstly, this is basically a remanufactured Tippman paintball gun to turn it into a pellet SMG so there are some fit and finish issues- it's obvious that slots were milled and extra holes drilled and there are some blemishes in the original powdercoat that were obviously retouched with spraypaint. In terms of ergonomics, I think the tank location below the grip is incredibly unwieldy, this should have been sold with a remote hose so that the tank can be out of the way . A stock is provided in the kit (more on that later) but tank is just in your way when shooting from the stock. The only way the tank doesn't get in your way is if you shoot from the hip.. Back to the stock, it comes with a folding joint which is fine, but it adds two inches to the length of an already long AR-style stock, so shorter individuals will find it too long to comfortably use. This should have come with either a compact stock if the folding joint is used, or a rail style collapsing stock. Shooting performance wise, my unit came with rear sights that were windage adjustable only, no elevation (the manual shows a windage and elevation adjustable rear sight), not that it matters that much as the groups are kind of all over the place.. I attribute this to lack of positive stops in the belt feed as well as very sloppy gas seal around the belt- the belt does not always line up perfectly with the barrel and the barrel end does not have any appreciable ramp or chamfering to help the pellet line up as it enters the barrel and the belt link does not fit snuggly between the gas port and the barrel so there is a fair bit of gas loss with every shot. I found that putting a piece of UHMW low friction tape with holes punched for the gas and pellet front and back on the gun helps seal the belt and smooths the feeding and does improve the groups. It will pretty much shoot 3 full belts on a 3000 Psi fill on the provided tank, but the last belt is pretty anemic, and I'd recommend refilling the tank after two belts or just using a big remote tank as you *will* be shooting multiple belts :).. The tank is pressure regulated to about 700 Psi probably as part of the Canadian detune. I suspect that it might perform better with a standard 850 PSI regulator. for those with additional tanks and the appropriate licensing.

This thing is sick!

Wow this gun is so much fun, you can adjust the rate of fire and id use a scope cuz with the but stock on the gun the iron sights are to to low, its very accurate and powerful and takes many lengths in pellets of 22 cal. also you can link multiple belts together, i think you can get around close to 300 shots per hpa tank so you can link 3 X 100 rd belts together but it wont fit into the drum mag, i am gonna get another im glad replica airguns has them now, wish it was sooner its a better deal from rep airguns
