Feedback on Ariakon Overlord Rx pistol?

A local shop has a special package price on the pistol with 3 spare magazines. I'm thinking that it's looking like a pretty nice main play pistol but I'd like some thoughts on it from those that have them already.

I have heard they have some of the same co2 o-ring problems as the delta68, but I haven't got one to crack open yet. Other than the co2 durability issues all these Spyder type pistols seem pretty dependable.
I put 2 bags of paint through my new Miltec G2 in the POURING rain, sand and mud this last weekend at the Michigan SPPL Qualifier without a glitch, I can definitely recommend them, although unless you're a big modder, I would get the G1 model instead-the small barrel of the G2 blocks access to the co2 plug. I installed a compression tip on mine that doesn't stick out from the gunbody.
The fix I'm using on the Delta68s should work for overlords too, though.

Thanks 'Smith. Your thoughts count for a lot given your preference to the handgun side of things.

Anytime Buddy!

Just remember to stick with the Brass Eagle brand 12grams for that gun, though they get far more 'duds', they don't have the sharp neck of the crosmans so they're more gentle on the o-ring.

My buddy used an overloard before his tac8 and he loved it. I fired it a bit and its a nice piece. The clip system is better than the zues system, as it is quicker and more durable in the long run. And like agentsmith said, stay away from the crossmans. They get stuck in the chamber quite often.

Isn't the RX the new version of the OverLord? The one where they where suppose to fix the 12gram issue?

I have one of the old Overlords and I love it. I prefer it to my Zues. Its more comfortable in hand then the Zues. My only beef with the over lord is that some times the milling on the clip gets caught in the holster. I eventually want to pick up a second Overlord to replace my Zues.
