Sorry, im shooting a DM9 now(better efficiency), Im still waiting for PE to make a FIX for the GEO. They'll be hearing an earful from me in Malaysia come WCA so they better be ready.
Sorry you had troubles with your gun, and i will agree that the "birth" of the GEO did not go smoothly, but as with all of Eclipse products, the entire company works day and night to correct any shortcomings, and they have more than done so with the GEO...the gun absolutely rocks. It has all the benefits of a spool valve and none of the drawbacks (for those that atually take the time to set the gun up the way PE tells you to).
and regarding efficiency, this is an old topic which has all kinds of hyperbole thrown around on PBNation...bottom line is that when set up the way they tell you to the gun gets exactly what they said it would get.
Most of the problems with the GEO from everything i have seen first hand is due to user error or user mis-understanding about how the gun works (which is the case with most paintball guns i might add!
But good luck with your DM. Hope your experiences with PE products are better in the future.
