Difference... Blazer vs. Typhoon
Hello, I am a total newb and I did not use the search tool. Would someone please tell me the difference between a typhoon and a blazer? Is one better than the other? That might be a dumb question, but like I said " newbness".

Here is the best explanation I can give you having owned both...
A Typhoon is a Lamborghini, and a Blazer is a Corvette Z1. They are both fine guns, and they both shoot fast, but one is hand built.
At the field I often hear "What is that?" when people see the Blazer.
When they see the Typhoon they say "Oh my God! What is that???"

Roberts - good description.
I dont like PPS soldering, or PPS anodizing..so its kind of a toss up as far as finish work on either gun.
Im more bent towards hard coat anno than nickel plating though.

PSA: Please don't use photobucket to post images. When you go through one of the older picture threads and find a lot of dead photo links, it is because of photobucket. They limit the amount of bandwidth your free subscription pictures can use, and then make the photo unviewable. Please use imgur.com or another free image host that does not ruin picture threads.

If were using cars, I think a Typhoon should be something a LOT heavier, like a DeLorean or one of those all-steel 70's muscle cars. The Blazer is more like a Lamborghini than a Typhoon would be, if you ask me. Fast and light and slick compared with fast and heavy and shiny and perhaps a little archaic.

Biggest difference in the Stroker VS Typhoon is the valve train.
The Typhoon's valve and hammer are based of the Sheridan KP's, which Glenn P has said was a more efficeint system because the hammer had longer throw.
I assume this caused less hammer bounce and required a lighter springing in a semi.
The idea is nullified if you got a KP stroked, wood stock or not.
