Okay so i got my kit today and had a few issues!
1.) I was missing two important parts! The meat hook and cover for the breach. I called RAP4- spoke with John and he is sending me the two missing parts (i requested they send them overnight and he said they will)
UPDATE: someone screwed up and sent them Priority mail! I sent them a pretty disgusted message we will see what they say! I called RAP4 directly, and referred me back to John, he was in a meeting and end up writing me an e-mail stating that there must have been some "miscommunication" with shipping dept. So basically they screwed up, big surprise! John did offer me free shipping and a free t-shirt (big whoop!) Not going to help me out this weekend! So I would suggest everyone check over the parts list with the parts you got very carefully!
2.) The pressure gauge plug was really hard to get in (compared to the X7 phenom stock body) I had to use a rubber mallet to get it in. I also contacted John about this and he said it is an issue they know about and the first run will have this issue and hope to fix it next batch. You can see that the hole in the body is off a little. With the plug installed you can see it does not sit stright and is tilted a little.
3.) The nut for the magazine well had some left over metal in it and made it just enough not able to get the nut to sit all the way down, causing the magwell not to line up corretly for the push pin. Had to use the dremel and small sanding cylinder to get the extra metal out of there. Works good, may go at it again to make it better!
UPDATE: Sanded more and it is much easier to put on and off now!
Since i did not have the covers to actually shoot any paintballs i am not sure how well it shoots yet. Also i noticed the mag they sent me does not release all the way, unlike my other 20 rnd mag i already had. I will open it up and see it there is something getting stuck someplace!
UPDATE: The mag they sent me for some reason the winder was sticking out past the mag just a little bit and would get caught on the side of the magazine well (since the mag wells are much tighter). I just sanded the winder a little down and now it works perfect!
Update 7/23/2011: i got my missing parts today! I was able to put 2 mags through it and it shoots great semi and full auto- 13bps! I tried PMI premium (about 3 months old) and cryptic paintballs (about 1 month old) both shot great with no breaks! I have another brand of paint (not sure the brand but it was in a local pb store box). I think it is a little more brittle than the Pmi premium paint, will see how it shoots!
