Please do! I'm interested to see how this actually handles paint. How much heavier is this setup compared to the stock one? It looks quite a bit clunkier.

ok im home now. it shoots ropes. it was really humid so the tippmanns were blowing some serious snow clouds, some so bad they couldnt even see to aim because the cloud was so big. this thing on 11 bps full auto barely let out a puff.
after a hopper and two 160 round dye locker pods, the first expansion chamber had slight condensation on it and was just barely cool to the touch. the bob long silver expansion chamber was still warm with no sign of running out of heat.

The setup is really balanced because all the weight is centralized between the two grips.

i remember the first time i shot co2 with this gun it blew every o ring on it and blasted air between the grip and frame, out the feedneck, out the barrel, etc. snow everywhere. now the gun cant hardly tell a difference. I do have to tune it based on the temperature outside though. If it's cool outside it wont fully cock itself back ... so i just have to adjust the reg about a quarter turn out and it works fine. and if its warm out i can adjust it back in.

but then i sat the gun down for about 2 hours in my truck and it blew the front macroline ....... I think the tank got too hot and started to boil and the pressure got too high.

Oh well, easy fix.

I think all thats left with this gun is the board needs fixed, i can still adjust all the modes just fine, but the display screen says 10.00 bps full auto... even though its not. I've replaced batteries and nothing will clear it.

This is a great tuner gun. A low pressure co2 marker is almost unheard of around here. I shoot gi sportz 3 star out of it just fine, as a matter of fact, its never broken a ball in probably 4 cases. I also cant emphasize enough how easy it is to work on these, if i break a ball, all i have to do is slide the bolt out and run a squeegee down the top tube, all of the air and spring adjustments are external, its lightweight and it looks great. Im very pleased with my quality azodin product.

GI sportz 3 star, does great. my buddy tried to shoot 3 star out of his (according to him),"gen 5" intimidator and it broke about 1 out of every 20. those are his words not mine.

I can do a full auto blast video if you guys insist.

it looks like itd be heavy but it really isnt, the chambers weigh nearly nothing. the heaviest part is actually the tank itself but theres no way around that without a remote, and we moved the tank to a centralized location so its better distributed between your two hands.... if anything it's actually LESS clunky. i dont have a foot long tank sticking out anymore.

I think this winter i can slide a sock over the expansion chambers and cut a hole in it for the macroline and slide a "hot handz" pack into it and shoot this gun when its below prime co2 boiling temperatures.

looks crazy but cool lol. Question how to you point the gun accurately without the use of a stock of somekind being that the tank is now going foward. I mean i see how it could be used but i could see myself being less accurate especially as my arms got tired through the day

edit - jw why not get an hpa tank and save yourself the trouble and get better consistency?

OP stated in another thread that HPA is not readily available or too costly in his area. there are still a lot of fields that only do CO2.
