LOL

The thing that gets you started on a pneu is the tiny, light trigger pull for an automag. If you are not careful, the friction on the trigger can keep it from resetting. They are not all that expensive in new parts. Unless you have something like Luke's Rex trigger (more expensive), you still have the opportunity to short stroke and chuff a ball or three. Pneus take some practice at high rates (12-14) and playing with other markers can set you back. With some electronics, you can have the equivalent (limited rof) of an emag that runs on a 9v battery and a classic valve.

The other thing that hits you when you get a pneu set right is that you need a force feeder to reliably keep up with it. That means batteries anyway. It's a nice use of the classic stainless valves. It is a bit of a sleeper in that it looks old and not like anything new. That makes it nice for rec ball where you have a mix of timid people and outcast speedball players. You can plink along with the group until some monkey starts throwing pods at you.

You never know... maybe I'll make you a package deal for all 3 in my collection and be done with it all.

“But Lord,” asked Gabriel, “Is this not too generous to these Canadians?”

And God replied, “Just wait and see the neighbors I shall inflict upon them.”
