Neither the Gmek or Emek safety have caused me any issues.

But, PE listens to the customers, right or wrong, LOL

The only thing I don’t like about the lever safety is that I can’t turn it on/off with only my grip hand without completely twisting my grip on the frame. I actually want to see if I can reverse it to put the lever on the right side where i could actually reach it with my index finger. Don’t know if it would work properly that way or not though.

I don't know why people complain about safeties. Use a barrel bag, and the safety becomes superfluous. Leave it off at all times, or rip it out.

It's for the schmucks who like to pick your gear up and rip on the trigger when they're looking with their hands instead of their eyes.

Eh, people forget their barrel covers all the time. I see it multiple times every time I play & it's not for the staff not trying to drill it into their heads. It does happen. The safety on the marker still exists for a reason. I know people who forget the barrel bad but never forget the one on the marker. In my area that one sticks in their heads better than the barrel cover.

I don't feel right not having a safety in a marker. Even my pumps. But I grew up with firearms so I'm really safety conscious and OCD about those things.

I picked the gun up for night time play and rain, which we ended up playing in. The safety isn't an issue for me if it was just for me. I just leave it off for myself and my son. I do however loan out gear to kids and I prefer having a safety for when the birthday party booger eaters are using my stuff. Anyway from the use that it received on this weekend we ran probably several hundred rounds through it. I did not use the stock barrel, but experienced no barrel or breech breaks. I only got to shoot it during the final battle and put about 650 rounds through it. During those 650 rounds I had to shake it a couple of times for each hopper's worth of paint I used. This was NOT from overfilling it. I need to get some time at home to double check the alignment of the hopper because I feel that something just wasn't right. I definitely want to do some work on the trigger. Overall still glad I purchased it, just have to get some time to really test it out. It also chronoed perfect right out of the box.

Just to clarify, this is NOT an electronic loader. It is still gravity feed, but with some added agitation. It is NOT infallible and, without a ball in the breech, firing the gun will NOT activate the plunger and hence the agitation plate in the loader. Jams are still possible, but the number you should experience are substantially less than what you would get with a purely gravity feed marker.

If you want guaranteed flawless feed every single shot, a true force-feed, battery driven, motorized loader is still the only solution.

Jack, how much rotation out of alignment can the hopper be and still allow the plungers to mate up?

The back of the feedtube has a little indexing nub so that as you push the loader down you can feel it locate. This helps you align the parts. Got to 23:35 in the video on the previous page to see how it works.
