I'm going to have to work out some way of putting my Izon site on my Spearhead... where there is a will there is a way...

Thanks!

The Gauge is a MacDev 0-700... the ASA adapter is from ShockTech.

Although I dig the nicely anodized ASA adapter... I swapped it for a chrome ShockTech for one reason.... to put a gauge on it. (MacDev 0-700)

I went to my local shop and aired it up. Out of the box it runs at 210-225 input pressure. I think this will go down as it gets worn in.

I had a bag of pretty old and Very brittle PMI. It fit my 16" Ultralite.

The WGP trigger is quick and direct. A notorious short-stroker had no problems ripping with and without paint. I tore into a hopper of paint at full tilt. Smooth and quick.... It made a steady rope of paint to the tree. The set up provides a crispness/directness while having VERY little vibration as it shoots. Single shots were just as sweet -- Solid and deliberate.

I sold a near perfect EvoX to buy this and as of right now I do not regret it at all. I need to throw a bunch more paint before I can do a full review.

My first impression... Itís a worthwhile choice. Well designed and well made.

It would look REALLY sweet if it didnt have that ugly WGP hinge on it. Why not go with the Blade?

Talking Its actually made me rethink the WGP...

It has a faster & snappier feeling than the Eclipse. Yet its still smooth.

The frame may not have the style of the Eclipse but the WGP seems faster, shorter and very difficult to short-stroked.

I took it apart and lubed it well. Its so smooth I will probably not put a roller sear in it.

Talking 68/4500

Yea the 45's are extremely light. 68 is the perfect size for me.

Talking No clue yet...

I'm going to get another air fill and shoot it before I play on Sunday.

MacDev had some very good comments about the marker's efficiency.

I do know that MacDev respecified the spring set for even better efficiency just before they sent this out.

Its the MacDev Sonic Yin-Yang Bolt. Its VERY light and super smooth. The Front section is replaceble for different faces MacDev is going to release.

This one is a LP Open face.

Talking I just discovered another cool thing about the Sonic...

Its arrived already seriously suction timed

I didn't get to play but was shooting a couple balls... and got curious. With a ball loaded, I put a tissue piece over the feed tube. Its amazing the suction it has. Wahoo!

Easy, just make sure the back block doesnt start to recock until the instant after the gun is fired. A quick and easy way to make sure that your back block is properly in time is to use your thumb and apply a moderate amount of force on the timing rod pushing it forward into the 3way. Then with your other hand start to slowly pull back on the trigger while keeping your eyes on the back block. If the back block moves at all before you hear the gun fire then you need to back out the timing a bit. Also note that if your back block recocks way after the gun is fired then you wont get the suction effect because the air has had time to equalize in the breech. The suction effect occures because the bolt opens the breech while air is still being pushed out of the gun which sucks the next ball down into the breech.
