My Lightning AutoCocker

So heres my review

I have modified this gun. The upgrades or (downgrades to some) are

-CCM pump kit
-Freak Kit
-Cp Regulator
-Cp on/off
-Dye Sticky Grips

So i took it out for the first time today. Filled up my tank (compressed air) and screwed it in. Turned the on/off to on and wallah leaking heavily. Pour water all over it and find the leaks teflon tape 'em and I'm rolling. My first shot was 300fps. Relatively easy to chrono (just play with reg) when I'm finished its shot 284, 287,279,285.

My setup was a 68/45 CP tank

Viewloader electric hopper (the cheapo ones that have a little x in side them to shuffle the paint )

Freak Barrel Kit (properly adjusted to the correct insert for the paint)

Draxxus gold paintballs (fresh and turned regulary)

Accuracy Wise:

The gun was relatively accurate. I don't have any statistics on the exact details, but I was putting the paint in about a 12in circle from the starting box of a regulation Nppl field to the 50 standup

No chops in the breach, one at the end of the barrel, but that was caused by dirt from a slide in the snake

the kick was small but really didn't effect anything seeing as I had to re-aim after every pump

Pump Stroke:

the CMM pump kit (w/ return spring) was the BEST i have ever used. Crazy smooth (almost to smooth) and never jammed or had any malfunctions

*note there is not (and never will be a autotrigger kit in it defeats the purpose of pump)*

All in all I feel that this was a good (not great) gun for the money I put into it
(Prices 80-gun,60ish-reg,40-on/off,90ish-pump kit,total-270ish)

If your looking for a project to build a cocker up then this is a good body to start with. The internals are plenty good and don't need replacing but you will need to pick up a regulator.

8/10
