ARS Powerup Bulb for 1911/Hicapa/226


See Illusion's post on page 2, My MEU evidently was not working properly during this test, Illusion has gone through the trouble of doing a proper test.


This little think does EXACTLY what it is supposed to.. and BOY does it ever do it well! This little thing goes inside the loading nozzle of your 1911, Hicapa or 226..

If you know what you're doing, installation will take you less than 15 minutes.

I have a very highly upgraded Marui MEU, before the ARS part I was using a firefly cylinder bulb.

Before the upgrades my chrono results where;
264.4
254.8
245.4
255.3
242.8

Average: 252.54

With that one little part installed my chrono results read;

295.4
298.6
293.2
288.3
276.2
(mag running low on gas)
Average: 290.34

Overall Gain from the ARS Powerup bulb: 37.8 FPS...

This part is WELL WORTH IT. I'll be using these in all possible pistols from now on

Does it drain more from the mag per shot, is it a more efficient part, or a combination of both?

No noticeable change in gas efficiency, my gun is still getting the same 18ish BB/mag

You should be getting at least 270-280 stock, so there's something wrong with your gun.

do you think they will make one for KSC guns (read: USP Sys 7)?

IIRC, KSC uses a completely different system of floating valve... aaand I don't really think the system is restrictive in any way.. so I don't think there's much of a need to lol

That's what I thought too...

I had a very good valve in there before.. but comparing them, the ARS one is WAY less restrictive.

lol are you sure you didn't just fix something in the process of reassembling it.

Cause you're supposed to get that kind of FPS stock anyways.

I'm 100% certain, when I got my MEU stock it fired around 260... Although all these tests are in a basement with all the windows open, and it certainly isn't a summer day in winnipeg.

I've always written off the lower FPS to the temperature and anorexic magazines.
