Very nice, quality review. Thank you very much for taking the time to do that for everyone's benefit.

Just a quick note, the fact that the pump guide rod is hollow will weaken it so slightly you would never notice the difference, most of the stresses that would be placed on a cylinder like that are carried by the outer walls of the part. If you somehow managed to put enough force on it to break the hollow one, you would more the likely also bend a solid core one. The only difference is the hollow one would most likely break/snap where a solid core would just bend, either way they would both need replacing. Just wanted to throw it out there, I think it's a neat idea they made it into a larger air chamber.

Thank you so much Simon - I am amending my review in light of these questions. This is why I state my opinions and am always open to correction.

I am glad to have the inside scoop on my review - so that the straight dope is out there for players to make on honest decision based upon.

I am also happy that I have Simon's input. In my experience he is a stand up guy and isn't trying to 'tow the party line'. When he says it - I have found it is about right.

solid info sirs..

If someone wanted to lighten up the main spring to help lighten the pump stroke would the stock reg be able to compensate for change??

You'll probably want to lighten the valve spring, otherwise lightening the mainspring won't do anything besides lower your velocity.

Ok, while i've decidely become a primarly nelson-based pump guy, i'm loving this sniper. I'm definitely gonna be waiting for a possible price drop, maybe even a used one (yes, i'll wait a year or more for it).

yup I like the review, concerns were addressed, definitely sounds like a winner marker and I bet with some pro-tuning, it should basically be a perfect marker for this configuration!

er, you can normally bring the pressure up some to compensate if there is adequate volume behind the valve.. unless the reg is maxxed out already

Thanks TF and Simon. It looks like this version of the Sniper will be around for a while. It's very asthecitally pleasing, and I like the coloration.
Although I've NEVER been much of a "Sniper" styled gun type of guy, and recent outings with my Snipers have reinforced my dislike for them, I'm a tinkerer at heart, and I do like messing with them.

Has anyone tried running this piece on a 12 gram? How did it work?
What about bulk CO2 from say a 20 ouncer?

I'd imagine that re-springing and re-regulating it would make a huge difference in report and consistency. +/- 10 f.p.s. could be tweaked to +/- 2 f.p.s. easily enough from that standpoint.

Maybe I'll pick up a used one to tinker with for next year's "Winter Project Gun".
