Questions For AKA Gurus

Hey all,

Looking for some input on the Tornado Valve and 2Litre Reg, and the lightning bolt. Im looking to really decrease the noise from my S5 Project, and these will be used in conjunction with Alpha343's Typhoon raincover.

So my question is, how do these perform?

The 2Liter is one of if not the best hpr on the market. High flowing and consistent. The Tornado valve is a high flowing valve, as is the Lightning bolt. Using the valve and bolt in combination is a wise choice.

As to the sound level.. Well, all I can think is this. The high flow internals help reduce the air pressure required by increasing the air volume. I guess lower pressure air might sound lower, but I would think a good ball to bore match with enough porting on the barrel tip would make more to lower the sound signature.

It would make an efficient setup.

Exactly the answer I was looking for, thanks sir.

Ravi has a review on the items you have in question (besides the reg)...the next part of your puzzle is a tight fitting barrel.

Funny how in that article Ravi says the Javelin is a tight bore, at a tiny .684"... and how now I get rollouts on a .678"...

Yeah, he actually goes on to say that he thinks that it was TOO tight a bore.
Thanks guys, I think that's what I needed to read.

Wow, I don't think I've been on Ravi's site since ~2003. That was quite the trip.

How does the AKA a/c hammer kit (and springs) tie into the OP's described setup?

Ravi's, or mine?

I was planning on just using the stock CCM hammer and spring. Does AKA sell a hammer kit?
