I think one person had an ASA o-ring break, so I wouldn't worry about that.

Most threads I see that have anything to do with dropoff are in the extremely early stages (like first 1000 shots) while things break in a little.

Do yourself a favor and read some of the threads about the GT in here and you will see plenty of our opinions on it in great detail.

Honestly you are not going to find many people in here that are going to tell you not to buy one, as most of us are MacDev fanboys, myself included.

I love my GT to death...just returned from playing and it shot incredible, which you will get accustomed to with the GT

You posted a couple days ago about a pressure tester making the "best" gun even better referring to the Clone GT?

To the OP, you would not regret getting a GT, best gun I've shot to date, haven't shot my Vapor yet though. I was always a Luxe fanboy but the GT is keeping my Luxe in the box! Aside from that DLX cs seems to be going downhill and Macdev is getting better! I've sent DLX countless emails and phone calls w no attempt at a return phone call or email and Macdev returns emails within 24hrs!

I was kidding. Do not hesitate to buy one. There are no problems. FSDO - did not happen to me and if it does you can fix it electronically. The oring on the ASA can be a problem - but it's a 10 second fix if it does happen. And I have not had or herd of any regulator problems.

Seriously, this marker is just pure wholesome goodness. If you go to the planet eclipse forums they will tell you to get an ego 11. But you shouldn't. I have shot both and the GT is mo' betta.

the gt is the way to go. I have die hard PE fans, drooling and wanting to shoot it all the time. Its a great gun. once it's broken in, it gets even better. my only complaint is the trigger. im so picky with them, but a little tape mod and i love it. see if there is one at your local field, fondle it, shoot it a couple times and see if you like it.

The GT is an amazing marker, I'm loving how smooth the shot is. For what it's worth, there haven't been any problems with mine or anyone I know.

Do not hesitate to pull the trigger on this great marker. Anyone that has any issue will have it resolved by MacDev.

You have to remember, running at 100psi is incredible! And makes for a buttery creamy smooth shot!

What is this tape mod you speak of? will it cut down the side to side play?! PLEASE say it does!

yeah, that or you can put a few small shims between the two bearings. so the trigger barely slids into the frame, that will decrease the side to side play by a lot. Pick these shims up at you local hardware store or mcmcaster. Or you can cut a slice of macro line.

Just curious, will an additional bearing, such as one that comes in the trigger pin & bearing kit, fit in there?
