AT85?

Anybody have information on the AT85? Really have a craving for one latley. How reliable are those chain drives and are they a really mess to repair?

I've had three.... I found them easy to work on once you understand the operation, and very reliable.

You gas them up/down in a certain sequence and they work great.

A good buddy of mine has a couple of them. The one piece of advice he gave me if I ever decided to get one is, "Don't take it apart unless you really, really need to." The chain drive is reliable but it can be bent if you're messing around with it (as my buddy found out). But they're nice and loud. Yeah!!!!!

I've seen one up close. Pretty neat, sounds like a Nelson ATing.

They aren't that bad to take apart, you just need to follow the directions to the letter especially with the oil type, the clip, and gassing/degassing.

That being said, when they go down, they can be a bear to fix. But well worth it. NO HOPPER, Loud, intimidating, and accurate. You cannot ask for a better marker. One of the few GOOD full auto mechanicals.

Can they run CO2? I seem to remember hearing they couldn't. Thanks.

They used to have two different cycle valves(one hpa and one CO2). Now there is only one much more reliable s.s. cycle valve(old one was brass) that they maintain is for hpa only because it is more reliable than CO2. Anything less than 60 degrees and the gun would freeze up in short order. You can however still use CO2 if the regulator is adjusted up a bit to compensate. The passageways are tiny and CO2 is thick by comparison. Using CO2 on hot days isn't a problem if you adjust the regulator and are able to get off of the trigger once in a while.
