as im sure you are aware, jack has a very good set of videos out on the performance of the independence and sweep bolt system. however, i have not seen any performance reviews on the invasion yet so im going to make a couple of videos when my shop gets our first set of guns in.
so far what i have heard from non alien fans is that the videos jack has up are inconclusive (what the heck?) ive heard "he didnt chronograph the gun after every switch" and "the video didnt show the gun while it was shooting." so i plan on doing both of those plus what jack has already done in his set with the independence.
i think that a third party doing the videos may help simply because i dont work for jack, i just love his guns. and seeing as im not on the payroll, im not as biased to the other viewers.
my question to you is what do you think needs to be in the video to make it most effective? the point is to show off the invasion and its use of the sweep system so what would you like to see? i have a barrel camera that shoots 720p at 60 fps or 1080p at 30 so barrel shots can be added to any shooting footage.
my current plan is to take the invasion, clamp it down and switch bolts back and forth just as jack does for the indy. take chrono readings every time i switch bolts or paint and keep it at a solid 300 the whole time. i have half a box of dxs gold that will shoot wonderfully with the 691 barrel the gun comes with and shoot at a target 125 feet away. i will be doing this with the barrel camera on the top of the barrel and with someone filming the actual shots from behind me. should only take 2 or 3 minuts from start to finish.
if i start with a full 4500 lbs fill, should i keep shooting untill the tank is empty to show how many shots it gets or leave that for another video? i noticed that when mike cramer did his review of the 09 indy he only had 4k in his tank and acted as though the gun got "alright" efficiency.
i plan to post the videos here, on the alien army facebook page
and wherever else i can fit it in, maybe even on my companies invasion item page if the boss allows it.
@jack. what would you like to see? what would you like to be said that hasnt already been said?
