arent the eos's firingtube the same as the XE/vibe blackheart? the original vibe didn't have the holes for the eyes if I remember correctly. Don't quote me on this though.

I believe so. The only difference is that the Eos uses a plastic tube with an aluminum insert for the firing can assembly whereas the XE and Vibe Blackheart used a metal tube.

The advantages to the Eos tube with the volume inserts is that you can keep the firing can pressure high enough to properly cycle at lower velocities. Otherwise, I'm drawing a blank on other advantages. It feels and sounds like an Intimidator at those higher pressures, you can only use certain solenoids to keep up with the increased operating pressure, you have to use a different QEV (something I learned the hard way), and efficiency really has no change (I can shoot 7 pods off 48/45 with the plastic sleeve + aluminum insert or I can shoot 7 pods with the aluminum sleeve).

IMO, the firing can options were a gimmick that could have been COMPLETELY avoided if Smart Parts built a true higher end Ion like the Eos was advertized to be and used an LPR to control the front of the bolt.

Unclebugspayton, if you get an Ion XE or Blackheart Vibe breech you can install it in the Eos in place of the Eos system, the only difference is that the Blackheart/XE breech will run at a lower pressure meaning you don't need solenoids designed to be able to work at Eos pressures.

Glad to know there people still firing EOS. Mind had board problem. The battery connector seems to be loose condition. Should I upgrade the board?

aren't those volume inserts the same as the ones for the epiphany? (which evidently do not fit the vibe/xe firing can. Believe it or not, but I actually did happen to have both the epi inserts and a couple of xe/vibe firing cans within arms reach atm)
