Resurrection worth it?

Like it says above, how has everyone's experience with it been? Ive been considering picking one up. Ive never seen anyone with one so i haven't had a chance to play with one.

Cheers

I have seen a few around me and everyone I ask has said the same thing... Just shoot it.

They are tinkerers overall and they don't want to change a thing about theirs, they have not had any issues I know of and use them very often. Look up the hustle PB video of the brothers who showcase their amazing cocker collection, they have tried it all and give a rave review of the Ressy. I have only shot one once but I too was very impressed

I didn't want to put one in my hands until I could afford one. Screwed that up pretty quickly, and sold off a DYE Reflex to fund buying a Resurrection.

Best buy I've ever made in paintball. By far.

One warning: don't let anyone else shoot it, they won't want to give it back.

Picked one up earlier this year used,, then for S&Gs stuck a Vicious FLE Inception body on it. Like it enough I think it will be my main shooter for this year at the field and at LL8. Only thing I might try is a lighter spring set and a rounded lug, but thats jut the old school autococker tinkerer in me seeing what I can make it do.

I set the input about 250 and IVG in about 2 turns from flush and it shoots a pretty consistent 280 without being broken in stock out of the box.

I've had mine for about a month and its all I play with anymore. My electro's are collecting dust. Its got me to the point that i'm ready to sell off everything but my Ressi & my Axe.

It's just a fun gun to play with and I use so much less paint. It brings me back to when I was younger before electro's broke onto the scene. My mindset is completely different on the field when I play with it.. I do alot more to make shots count which increases my accuracy 10 fold. The gun itself is no more accurate than anything else I shoot but the way I play with it lends itself to taking better shots.

I don't mean to be the dick guy, but I wouldn't base my opinion on a gun against an entire fleet of classic guns that they bought non working from someone else and hadn't even gotten working at the time of the review.

Have about 3-4 cases through mine. Shot it all weekend at Legends. I really like it.

I may have helped sell a few this last weekend letting people try mine out here and there.

It's funny, I shot my Trracer during the pump games, my Resurrection the rest of the weekend, and only brought my Axe out to put on a new feed neck. Never put a single ball through the Axe, because my Resurrection is just too much fun to play with. Damn consistent, too. On Saturday at the chrony, I shot 278, 277, 279. Simon said he shot 280, 280, 280, 278, 280 with his.

This is a situation of a gun built the right way, all the way.

The one downside I've found with my Resurrection is when I was forced to use paint that was so inconsistently sized I would get roll-outs on some of the balls, so would have to remember to not point the barrel down. But Pump Scout, like you said, the typical shot consistency is awesome. Who needs a double trigger, when each ball goes exactly where you want?

...Assuming the paint isn't crap, of course.

smaller bore barrel will fix that - I always underbore on autocockers and pumps.

Ran a .680 on the Resurrection at LL8

I was playing with my eNMEy for some time now, but got fed up with the fact that neither BOSS or TechT will sell a bolt so it can have better efficiency. Now that GOG has completely dropped their electro line (G1/eNVy, and eXTCy) to focus on the new Shocker RSX.

I decided to pull the Resurrection back out of the closet. Good thing I did. I am now having fun again.
I missed the Resurrection's crisp trigger pull, consistency and best of all... efficiency.

The trajectory does seems a bit flatter on the Resurrection than my open bolt guns... or is it me?

Yeah, me too. However, on this unfortunate day the paint size fluctuated so much that I couldn't underbore like I wanted, because I would get barrel breaks when an abnormally large ball was fired.

That is the killer on closed bolt guns when you get inconsistent sized field paint and you get barrel breaks if you underbore.

I always pack a open bolt gun in my gear bag when I have to deal with field paint. I just use the largest barrel insert that will allow the large ball to pass through. This way nothing breaks.

Unfortunately if I didn't bring an open bolt gun. I would overbore on my Resurrection and be careful not to tilt my barrel down.

I was on the fence about picking one of these up compared to the other options out there and this thread has confirmed that my next paycheck will be sent towards a ressy
