New to Macdev, just got a Clone GT.

Just recieved my first Clone today in the mail. Broke it down right away to get familiar with it and relubed it. Threw some ultra evil in it and shot about a hoppers worth in the front yard. Broke 2 balls toward the end, I believe it might have been caused by the detents as they are fairly stiff and stick out somewhat far (trimmed them slightly and feels gentler). No paint in the breech but started right at the beginning of the barrel so either way Im certain it was in no way the guns fault.

Initial thoughts:
-light, love the ergo's. feels natural in the hands. looks beautiful.

-Efficiency, used around 500 for the total of about 200+- shots, so im assuming about 1500 shots give or take off a full 68ci. Excellent!

-Accuracy (or perceived accuracy), seemed to be much tighter groupings than my 2.1 with same paint and barrel. I'm assuming that is due to more consistent even flowing air through the drivetrain. Great for accurate snap shots.

-Eyes/Board/Trigger, I like the eyes being illuminated, makng it easier to troubleshoot. I also like the way the board is laid out, its simple straight forward easy to use. Less selection than an eclipse board as far as options, but I prefer that it has less BS sitting in the board I will most likely never touch. To the people that complain of OLED in the light, this is my first marker with an OLED board and I just went through it in DIRECT sunlight, ZERO issues seeing anything. Trigger feels a little "jiggly" maybe. But I had no problem hitting 17-BPS in straight semi, so its fine for me.

-Maintinence, very simple to perform standard maintenence. The expanded views in the manual make it near impossible to mess up. I would say ease of maintinence to be somewhere between a 2.1 and a dm12. very simple just a few more orings.

-Overall I am very impressed with this marker. It looks feels and performs great. Looking forward to using it next weekend.


Great job Macdev, here are some pics of the setup for anyone interested.

Nice GT man, welcome to MacDev!

Sounds like you had some good first impressions. I also like the fact that you don't think maintenance is difficult simply due to there being an above average amount of o-rings in the drivetrain. It really is quite simple once it's actually laid out for one to see. Many people have the perception that it's more difficult than it is.

Feel free to post up in the GT Militia club (link in my sig)!

Thanks, been wanting one for a while and its living up to the expectation. Its quite simple to take apart and I would feel confident putting it in front of anyone with just the expanded view of the drivetrain and HPR in the manual, and only taking about 15 mins to lube and rebuild.

IMO much nicer than the DM12 to maintain as the lpr and hpr can become a big pain for some first time users to disassemble with having to separate the frame and the sticky grip over the HPR.

just my .02

love this gun, I cant stop taking it outside and poppin a few shots off

Solid setup.

I am waiting on my GT. First MacDev as well.
I got the black/teal. I am very excited to use it already.

Hey we're local Uprising? sounds familiar where do you guys play at?

Nice GT. I'm considering trading/selling my 2.1 and getting at GT. Since you own both, can you tell me which you prefer and why. Might help me with my decision. Thanks a bunch!

Welcome, Im sure you will love your Gt! A little off topic but how do you like the deadly wind barrel on your gt compared to the stock shift kit? I was thinking about picking one up but I have never used one before.... Is it quieter than the shift barrel???

Definitely do not use the SHP. The GT is not designed for pressures that high. Out of the ones you have the SLP is the best bet. Many people have used the SLP without any problems, so give that a shot and you should be fine.
