2013 Demon: Heres the lowdown on it!
Just got my 2013'd demon back, heres what went down.
When I got it back, it had a small leak in it, that I'm guessing it was from overlubing, b/c once I cleaned the bolt off, and regreased it, it was fine.
I got my 2013 Demon out to shoot some paint through it, and heres how it did. First 5 shots over the chrono with some fresh Formula. 286 291 287 290 292. Doesnt get much better than that.
On 12.5 ramp, it shot a nice tight group at around 50 feet. Accuracy/consistency is definitely great on this gun. I was shocked at how well it held its grouping with some decent paint. I'd love to see it with some Evil.
I then switched to some old, dimpled FPO Heat that I had laying around. I expected it to be all over the place, but to my surprise, it stayed relatively tight. Not as good as the formula, but good enough. I put the same paint through my Ego and my Geo2, both using the same barrel as the Demon. The ego was having flyers left and right, and the geo fared better than the ego, but not as good as the Demon.
As for gas mileage. I got 2 pods and a hopper from about 1000 psi on my 68/4500. Definitely not a gas hog.
I was really impressed with how well it shot. Great groupings, no shootdown, no breaks, and it handled the bad paint pretty well. If you are on the fence as to whether or not its worth it to do the upgrade, I hope this helps you decide.
