My friend is giving me a classic mag he's had in storage for 10+ years and I want to have a nice mech that will handle co2 or hpa well.
I've got a small angled mini drop (scavenged off an old spyder) and I was wondering which X chamber to choose?
An ACI subzero 4 stage or a Dead On X-core 8 stage. I don't really want one of the ginormous ones that extend really far below the grip frame's bottom and so narrowed it down to those two.
I'm not looking at this as my primary gun or even primary mech, just a fun project / loaner and co2 capable so I can play in the woods at a couple of places where HPA isn't readily available.
Edit: I was also thinking of an RT on/off, lvl 10 bolt, and Helios body when I can afford them. Are those co2 compatible? Probably going to leave it single trigger to keep the ROF co2 friendly and slap a CP barrel on it. Oh, and what is up with he trend of automags and short barrels? I've seen more pictures of mags with 6-10" barrels than any other gun.

Reason: More ?'s
So I found out the ACI subzero is a better expansion chamber than the x-core. I researched and then just got both, at 10-13 a piece they were cheap enough. X-core is way comfier and more ergonomic though.
I dug up another angled drop forward for it. A different friend had a SP drop in their toolbox for years.
Also found out the dimensions for the RT on/off. Most likely gotta get a 740 pin (728 might work too it depends on the individual marker) to run it in a classic valve.
I think I'll keep it single trigger to keep the rate of fire at levels that don't frost the marker. After all it's only for the odd outlaw game with people shooting spyders and tippys in the backwoods.
I was looking into a Helios body for 85 + feedneck and detent separate. ULE bodies were 135 to 150. Then someone offered me a ULE bodied classic for $100 and I couldn't pass it up.
So uhh... Now I have two mags. That was unexpected...
Still never did figure out what the 6-10" barrel trend was. Nostalgia for when they came stock with barrels that length?
