If you're comparing it to the 98, well there's your answer. I challenge anyone to find me a worse stock barrel.

I had same experience. First time I used one I pick up it shot dead on was so much fun I played all day with it. I was shocked because couple friends had 98 and a5, first think they was change the barrels.

Do they run well on air, I thought they only ran on co2?

Pro/carbines run every bit better on HPA as any other gun. Essentially the valve is the same as a 98c or A5.

All guns have the same accuracy in a vice in a controlled enviorment. In the real world a lot of that changes. Ergonomics and what not. If it is comfy in the hands it will shoot well on the field. See my sig.

When I got my first Pro-Lite (~94ish), I took the prevailing advice and bought a 12" stainless J&J barrel. Accuracy was OK, but not great with the field paint I was using (Polar Ice in winter and PMI Premium the rest of the year). Being bored and poor, I polished the snot out of the stock barrel and saw huge improvements in accuracy. Nowadays, if I can find big enough paint, it's fun to hit kids with one or two shots (at 20-25 yards) from a gun that's older than they are.

Not exactly. the valve actually has 2 depressing pins on the same spring.
so instead of routing air around the power-tube it pushes the valve forward to depress both pins wich recocks the hammer and propels the ball forward.

But for accuracy the reasons are:
-It's not a clam-shell
-the power of suggestion
-Sentimental powers
-their lack of need for maintenance
so basically they almost always work well

The valve you are describing is a prolite valve. Procarbs have the cvx valve, like the 98's.
