It's a standard A4 that's had the MT "Fly" eye conversion. If you take a pic of the board we can tell you for sure what it is.

In case you're wondering that is also a A4 Fly trigger and a Force back plate.

I think its funny that they included the stock volumizers. When I got my 4 originally it came with 3 different sizes I believe. To this day I'm still not convinced that they really do anything.

*Edit* Random tip with that gun. If you're playing in bright sunlight make sure the grips are on tight. I played at NCPA Nationals in Orlando shortly after I got my 4 and had pearl grips. I could not for the life of me figure out why it was acting so flaky. Just something to keep in mind.

The volumizers add volume (varying amounts with the different sizes) to the valve chamber, allowing you to lower pressure (remember that volume and pressure are inversely proportional, all else equal). The actual functional difference in how the gun operates, though, is pretty negligible.

Yeah, I understand the principle behind it. I just have never felt that there is an appreciable difference with or without the volumizer.

Hence the caveat in the last sentence. Using less pressure with the same volume results in better efficiency, but lower pressure for low pressure's sake, created by expanding volume, doesn't enhance efficiency, and the practical results are pretty negligible. It can be beneficial in the sense that it allows you to use less force to open the valve (either by lowering LPR pressure or reducing hammer weight, both of which affect perceived "kick"), and may also be easier on paint (although the acceleration forces didn't vary much with pressure in tests conducted by Tom Kaye, but that wasn't with a poppet platform). But you have to tune to take advantage, and even then the difference isn't very dramatic.
