Do you guys remember The Alleycat?

Just wondering if you guys remember the Alley cat? Any experience with it or anything? Looks very well built to my eyes!

Yes they're one of the best sear tripper blowbacks you can get. The machining tolerances are very tight, they're made of high-quality alloy, and they have a smooth operation. The hammer doesn't smack the valve, it pushes it open as it slides past. And you can separately adjust the amount of gas sent both to the recock operation and to fire the ball. Mine is one of the smoothest, quietest guns I own, with very little of the usual blowback kick.

My friend just bought one and it leaks like crazy. I like how it feels but even after replacing the o-rings and putting everything together correctly it still leaked. Thus I haven't had a good experience with the Alley Cat.

My Alleycat DX. My current goto blowback. With the more heavily ported barrels (like the 12" AA, or using my Freak kit) it's scary quiet.

You can get a whole alley cat for the price of the automag classic valve. Alley cats are not stainless, for better or worse. Alley cats are all 6061 aluminum which ano's easily and polishes nice. The stock finish is not very smooth with a heavy ano coat. There's fat to machine on if you like. The cats without the front adapter tend to be harder to run on HPA (if at all). The system is well designed for CO2, but if you give it some volume under the valve at the vert adapter, they can get along well on HPA.

It's very interesting to take any of these old markers and give them the advantage of force feeders and HPA.

You can still find a few alley cat here on the BST, sometime on ebay there are NIB alleycat or thundercat.

I use to hoard them a lot but now I only have 2 cat left.
