Interceptors or Remains

What are the actual differences in the guns besides frame/weight? Thats What I would like to know. From the sticky's I'm not quiet so sure.

I'm mainly talking about maintance and performance.

thanks!

same maintinence and same preformance, remains is just a smaller package with an integrated lpr, more like an egos an less like a timmys(no frontblock). both take same boards same feednecks and same barrels.

Remains has a 45degree trigger frame I think and the Interceptor has a 80degree frame.. other than that they are the same cept for remains is a bit lighter and a bit more efficent....

I looked in vs stickies and did not see an Interceptor vs Remains thread. Since the subject comes up quite often it seems like there ought to be an easy place to send people. Anyway, I own both so I'll comment. The Interceptor is a full on tournament level gun. It's light, fast, reliable, very consistent, reasonably effiecient and easy to maintain. The Remains is just a little bit more of all those things. The major differences for the Remains being:

1. Noticeably lighter
2. Refined build quality
3. Better LPR
4. Lower operating pressure/ram bumper- no kick.
5. Smaller, lighter trigger- faster and smoother when set up correctly.
6. Better trigger plate system- much easier to put back together.
7. Better stock barrel- the 14" Invasion is spot on.

It's not much but these subtle refinements add up to a better gun. Yep, the Inteceptor is a great gun in it's own right but in this case You do get what you pay for.

Could someone clarify the Interceptors LPR. I'm confused now. The remains has a better one? how is it better?

Sorry, I'm like technical jargon noob. I can't translate reading stuff very well. So laymans terms plz!

The Remains lpr is intergrated into the body. This creates a larger volume of air. This allows the marker to operate at a lower pressure, creating less kick. The Remains lpr is not exactly "better," but it is mounted in a way that allows the marker to run at a lower pressure. You can achieve the same resulte by putting a volumizer on an Interceptor.

Sorry but in my estimation the design of the Remains LPR is "better" if for no other reason than it is easier to completely disassemble (you don't have to shoot the piston into a pillow). The Remains LPR is simply less problematic. Given a choice between the 2, with all things being equal, I would choose the Remains design over the Interceptor design.

Hmm, true. I was assessing it more by performance: to my knowledge, neither is more consistent or quicker recharging than the other. But you're right, disassembly is much easier with the Remains!

Yep, the improvements on the Remains are small, perhaps even barely noticeable in part but the sum of those parts does make a distinct difference.

i own an 06 interceptor and have used the remains, and basically the only difference is remains runs at lower pressure that can be achieved on the interceptor by getting a hose kit and its a little lighter.

how would a hose kit lower lpr pressure? if it is bigger, it can't be too much bigger
