the more i see it, the sexier it gets. jack i think you may just have made one of the best looking guns out. and going from fugly to sexy, especially in this market where looks are important, thats quite an acomplishment (especially when you are competing against big companies that probably hire people just to make stuff look good)

Can anyone with both an 08 and an 09 post up comparison pics of the two? I'm getting a Geo soon, and am very seriously considering just selling it straight away for an 09 Alien and a chunk of cash. Damn, if I could just sell this thing straight to Jack it'd make my day.

Top Ten plus one - '09 changes - in order of importance - IMO -

1. High flow hose (3 times cocker hose with high flow barbs) and quick release fittings = lower LPR for less kick and smoother shot. Also ends hose blow off and easier to service.

2. Ram out back - clean and lube ram. However is not open to paint, dirt or shell getting inside - unlike other rammer guns.

3. New shop for machining - excellent tolerances

4. SMC solenoid, rated it lower because some '08 have it - will not blow the noid. Best improvement so far - more noids blown than any other problem - and not just Aliens - dealers have told me they quite often have several rammer guns in for noid replacement.

5. Redesigned body, trigger frame and Ram - 2 screws lock the modules togeather. Looks great and very easy to take apart and put togeather. Plus holds loader better

6. New Regulator design. Seat can't come out. Higher flow.

7. Integrated ASA for inline regulator = strength, looks and weight.

8. SofTouch on hammers - now delrin tab to reduce sound - '08 rubber could wear and change efficiency or come off.

9. Smaller LPR cap and piston = improved looks

10.Redesigned On/Off - purges air much better and knob can't come out unexpectedly.

11. Fit and finish --

So other than the new SMC solenoid, what items here (if any) could be added/upgraded for the '08 Indy?

I know this is an old thread and I don't see a public answer to the last post. Could someone please inlighten me as to what updates I can put into the 08 Indy I am getting here soon.

Thanks.

Alien is still not a highly distributed company, so upgrades are few and far between. The 09s changed that but your 08 doesn't have a lot of upgrade options. You won't really need any though to be honest. Most upgrades are just bunk. Get a nice barrel kit......maybe a reg if you have trouble with the stock one. Other than that, have fun.
