The only thing I don't like about ANS is there online chat. If you have a question about a product, you are going to to get told to call tech department.

90* Hinge Frame (ripped off Jackal? Idk, don't want to get into it but I like it haha.)
3 Way - Smooth short throw (compared to my Trilogy lol)
Jackhammer - Externally adjustable, no complaints
The 90 hinge and their last 'cocker body (the X5, I wanna say) were based off of designs from Jackal Machine after they closed up shop. I had one of the last RDL bodies from Jackal, sold it off a couple of years back. 'Cockers are just too much work these days for too little performance. Old skool cool? Definitely, just not my cup of tea.

EDIT: yep, the X5, even came with their version of the Jackal vertical hinge. Good marker, had the vert frame, forward leaning 15* ASA, and a big drop forward. All it really needs to be modernly competitive is a lower feedneck, and for my taste, a FBM Power Angle or a NDZ Drop Kick.

100% agree, I buy from ANS a lot (1 day delivery since they're just a few hours away!) and they have good prices, great selection, lots of sales, and quick shipping. The only problem I've ever had was with the online chat. I really hate getting vague 3-word answers after 2 minutes of waiting.

From my experiences with ANS, I have never really had a problem. I attempted to purchase ~200 ion bolts from them and received a bunch of BS but that's besides the point.

I do agree with the notion that they should take broken items back instead of going to the MFR.

I bought a crossfire 68/4500 tank and dye 68 cover back in August. Found out the cover doesn't fit right. Life got busy and I went back a week before christmas(4 months after purchase) to get a tank that fit the cover or a cover that fit the tank or both. Turns out they don't make 68 tanks in the old length anymore so I'm stuck with a useless cover. They offered to refund the cover I bought back in August, but I refused because bringing it back 4 months later was my fault. Some of you guys must have really bad people skills.

Nice, finally can get them to ship to Canada. In the past year I've ordered a few times from ANS, no complaints yet.

I use ANS on a regular basis, I've never had a problem with them and I'm on the East coast. I have a preorder item waiting but they clearly state that on the item I purchased. Use them often and will continue to do so.

I honestly wish I could buy local again but the nearest pro shop to me is a good 30 mins away down a treacherous canyon in the winter. Not only that but their selection is somewhat lacking; I had $$ in hand to buy a EFlex, they had only one color in stock the numerous times I called so I said F'it and ordered from Hustle Paintball (great guys). I want a Hammer 7 but they refuse to stock it or even bring one in because 'pumps don't sell well around here' according to the sales clerk. The only pump guns they had were a Trracer, KP Pump and maybe a Sniper. No wonder pumps don't move for you...
