RaceGun....consuming air?

I've been reading about how these things seem to be consuming a lot of air. Is this a common problem that happens with all of the racegun cockers, or is this rare? I've heard really good things about the racegun frames. But if they consume that much air, then that makes me re-think them alittle.

Late!

Thumbs down 'net hype..

Can't weed through it eh..

It's a cocker. Cocker's can be as inefficent or as efficent as you want them to be. Learn how to spring a gun and it won't be an issue.

Not true.. When I first got mine was getting around 1000 from a 68/3k but I started playing with the springs and am trying to get my efficiency back!

Moral... Don't play!

My efficentcy is pretty much the same w/ or w/out the race grip on. I agree with timebomb, it's all hype.

Well, what I posted in my review wasn't net hype. I have the same springs in my gun as I had before and it's using more air now that the race is on there. Don't get me wrong. I love the race grip, but there was a difference in air consumption. I was getting ~1500-1800 shots on a 68/45 and now its ~1000-1100. Doesn't really affect me since I usually don't use more than three to four hoppers in a game, but it could change a back player's game.

Later

P.S. We(sam and I) have found that lowering the dwell has lowered air consumption a bit. I'm sure if we messed around with the guts of our guns we could get better consumption, but like I said, it doesn't really bother me.

Now, I am curious,

I KNOW that the racegrip cannot affect anything except the action of the 4-way.

The grip doesn't affect the valve in any new manner. Or change hammer weight. Or change the distance the hammer travels. Or change the volume or pressure of the system.

The reg/4-way/ram system doesn't use that much air anyways. And the volume of the front pneumatics is not changed by a lot. Or the pressure.

So where is your efficientcy problems coming from?

Could it be a change in spring settings or something else? I think those are your problem, and not the grip.

That's what I don't understand. I just can't see how a trigger and a new 5-way can change all the air. I'm fairly positive that Ethan didn't change any of the interal springs. I dunno. But since it doesn't really bother me, I'm not tinkerin around with a way to fix it. So far, I think sam and I are the only two that have noticed anything with air problems.
