Onslaught Owner Impressions/Feeback

Debating on getting a new Onslaught. Just wondering if owners are enjoying their Onslaught. Have there been any issues with them? Efficiency and shot quality as good as advertised? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!

I just used mine on Sunday and I loved it. Only thing I would probably adjust is the trigger a little or just get a whole new trigger. I did not use the stock barrel just yet. It is still cold around me and I had to over bore a little with my .688

I wish bob made the board 10.2 compatible because the board is only 10-10.5 for us PSP guys....

But I am going to test out how much in between lubing this thing go can go until leaks or drop off. That was my problem with my insight, I had to lube after 2-3 cases or I would get drop off or bolt stick. In a tourney you sometimes shoot 4-5 cases a day and you can't be lubing between matches.

But the gun definitely eliminated any barrel rise and vibration that the insight had. Bob really made an excellent gun with the insight and just improved its small weakness and made the onslaught.

I've NEVER had a problem re-lubing any of my markers in between matches. Race to 4 D3 WCPPL. Sometimes can reach 7 points. Never a problem during a match either......

I really need more than one day of play with a marker to give a full review and I have not done a full efficiency test yet.
I can tell you I was able to one ball folks like I can with the Geo 3.5 as the Onslaught points just so natural for me and I was getting about 750 shots off 2k of air. My first impressions are efficient, around Luxe or Demon smooth (not quite Vcom or GTi smooth) and a natural pointer. I'm really liking it thus far.
Due to work I have not had more than one day of use yet, but that will change Sunday. I have 2500 ish shots on it now and have not cleaned it since it was used two weeks ago and I plan on putting another 3k or so shots through it this weekend. I'll report back on how she does.

I played some local events where after 2-3 cases it would start getting drop off and problems. I always use Monkey poo and been wanting to try pathogen grease since everyone talks so highly of it.

I have MSXL, but will be using my Squish 2.0 for the even. but when I come back I will be putting the Onslaught in for a torture test. Will be getting all tanks filled and couple of cases of paint and also have some friends and local guys using it. In April I will go close to 6-8 cases in that month for sure and will see how does.

But I love the gun and looking forward to shooting this thing a lot more after this tourney.

I have used mine a few times now. I have a luxe 2.0 and sold my LV1 for the onslaught. I am still a bit iffy with it. I like the luxe a bit better as far as smoothness.
The efficiency is great, but i cant stand the trigger.

Yea, I don't like the blast triggers, either. I replace all of mine with violent triggers.

I used mine finally on Wednesday. A little reminiscent of the insight but much cleaner . The sound signature is similar to insight just a little more lower . And recoil is reduced , pinging noise is gone . The recoil that is left seems to be a straight back without much barrel rise. Can't say about efficiency yet since my field was filling to under 3k . I had to adjust some settings to use my spire and had to adjust my trigger for the bounce but that's it for problems

What settings did you need to adjust on your spire?

With the insight the gun cycled very fast and it was very eager to fire asap with actuation. It literally took the ''Lag factor'' out of equation compared to other spools.

Whats the point of owning an Onslaught if the bolt has been slowed down ?

I imagine that the forward actuation of the bolt is still the same or is very similar while the spring merely slows down the return of the bolt to help smooth out the shot. Even with the spring I doubt it was slowed down very much.

I just shot my onslaught in 32* right now with 3 week old cheap indoor paint and Zero breaks and no bolt stick. I placed 1500 rounds through it and this thing was having zero problems and my squish 2.0 and geo2 both where having a lot of bolt stick and barrel breaks.

This Sunday I have MSXL and looking forward to using it

Used mine for its first real practice yesterday. Had some issues initially with it not feeding consistently. I believe I had my feedneck screw tightened down a bit too much for the Spire to handle. Backed it off a 1/2 turn and had no issues feeding for the rest of the day.

The shot feel is much better than the Insight hands down and this is pretty much right out of the box. Definitely less ping-y than an Insight. No issues with breaking paint or shoot down to report. I had it lubed with Dow 33. Probably switch over to monkey poo shortly.

Other than the feedneck being too tight, at the end of the day I took out the bolt and noticed the two halves of the engine were loose. I thought this issue was fixed with an updated o-ring?

Jorge are you sure it wasn't undertightened to begin with? After putting mine through a months worth of shots, I feel that I would've noticed an issue.

Not calling you a liar - as you're a friend and a scholar - just asking.

I too have seen the two engine halves coming a little loose. I just used the old 1x15 o-ring trick on the engine back and problem solved.

When the can on my insight were coming loose, I used this instead of blue loctite.

Doesn't harden and stays gummy. Smells like the lower hells tho

I mean, I hand tightened the two halves together as tight as I could before I played. Shot about 2 cases and then at the end of the day I took it out and the halves were loose. Maybe I don't have the larger o-ring that sits be the halves? What size is that supposed to be? 2x20?
