Is the Epiphany a good choice?

Hey i am recently trying to widdle my way back into pb little by little, i have just recently traded for an epiphany, but has yet to arrive. I have had great experiences in the past with ions and shockers, will this be the same quality? And what would you recommend to run high, or low pressure?

Go with an hp tank. An epiphany is basically an upgraded ion. But I've had mine for about 3 years now. All the oranges and hoses are still the same as when I bought it. I'd recommend a new feedneck if it doesn't already have one. Other then that it's a great gun IMHO

DO IT. I've had my Epi for years, no problems anywhere, got the original hoses, orings, and all that jazz. High pressure tank is the way to go, and you will want an clamping feedneck of course.

Its pretty set to go out of the box.

Just be carefull opening it because 4 years ago i stripped out the firing chamber.

Clamping feedneck is handy. Stock one is horrible, worst ive ever used.
Probly a new trigger because the stock is unusualy strong.
Drop-foward maybe. Your choice.

really? I LOVE the stock trigger, of all the guns i have ever shot it is my favorite trigger ever. I barely tweaked the settings on it.

This. And it's adjustable like crazy.

The Epiphany is a great gun, I still think it's smoother and a bit more consistent than my Etek 2.

Yet another thing that keeps me coming back to this gun is the reliability. I have practice for my team every week, and every week i show up, pull out my epi, slap on the barrel/hopper/gas/and batteries, load up, and go sit on the field waiting for everyone else to get all their problems sorted out. It seems like every week someone's Ego starts leaking, or their Luxe craps out etc. etc. I have YET (after 2 1/2 years of using this gun pretty heavily) to have a single non paint related problem on the field with my epiphany (that includes a week of Oklahoma D-Day and tournaments).

My friend had one and he never lubed it. Not once. It still works after 4 years.

The only problem i have is that its bad on air.

Mine isn't to bad in air. And it's still stock. But I've never really did a eff. Test but it's got the dwell and every thing set up nicely.
