Realistically though, if you play magfed you are not going to shoot anywhere near that amount of paint in a day.

Not sure I turned the knob one way trying to get the piece to move but no matter how many times I turn it or which direction it won't move I must have stripped something.

I got to shoot this a little at Fulda. It was pretty sweet. Not sure if it's sweet enough for the price tag (and because I don't really play Mil-Sim/Tactical), but it shot really well.

Maybe if I win the lottery, and they do 100 round drums or something for First Strikes, just so I can run around yelling "Say hello to my lil' friend!" and shooting off a burst.

What are the circumstances of the ball breaks from the magazine? I have shot thousands of regular paintballs through the magazine and have only had barrel breaks in the production version (bad paint). There is a small chance that the magazine you are using has a molding error that can cause drag on the bumper that follows the paintball. I haven't seen this since we went to full blown production though. Try putting some lube on the bumper arms.

And FYI the magazine loads faster then a Rotor.

It was only 4 breaks so far not a real big deal just a pain to clean. It was just the last 1 or 2 paintballs from the stack and only with the 20 round mag. Haven't had any trouble with the 10.

Have had no barrel brakes yet

My plan is to use fs only so it doesn't really matter unless I'm screwing around with regular paintballs

How many shots does this get when using the in-stock tank?

Just checked this, my 13/3000 was filled to about 2800 psi, and got 165 shots at 270 fps. Dwell is at 14 still need to mess with it a little more to fine tune it.

Ooh, airthru stock on the way! That's half the issues taken care of... now I'm waiting for 20 round mags that aren't 10+10 and I'll happily pay a bit more even if they're only for round paint. I don't play the sniper role.

Also good to see that they plan to pump the platform up with extras - sounds like a box mag is almost certainly in the works for one thing. Ecosystem!

In future maybe a double trigger frame? Sniper length barrels for the look? FS Sniper scopes in a matching style? oled board? (lol unlikely)

160 shots on a 13/3k sounds fine to me. Must just be a matter of tweaking some settings, which is where an oled board would come in handy. I could never understand why dye don't do those.
