As long as that hose requires you to attach a paintball tank to it most airsofters won't touch it for lack of realism. I am sure PS is going to come out with a 1911 pistol that also needs a hose to operate it.

When I pick up a M4, I want to hold it and shoot it, not attach a coil hose to it.

Why couldn't PS just put HPA in a modified GBBR magazine to eliminate the tank?

I'm not a fan of things with extra hoses/wires/etc...but on that same note tons of guys have comm lines/lanyards/hydration lines/packs/belts/etc...all over them anyways.

I've got two in the workshop right now...they're very impressive re. build quality and design. The setup/electronics are very simple and it works.

There's noise and all that...no real action to speak of. Sort of like a PTW (switch trigger, instant shot, etc...). Very consistent FPS delivery. And it's fun on a SAW like setup. In fact...that's where I'd see it having the most appeal. To lay in with a lot of rounds without having to worry about mechboxes/batteries...that's cool.

I'd run one on a SAW in a heartbeat...I wouldn't use it for an M4.

I think the PS is going to have to evolve before airsofters would consider it.

The $400 drop in unit does not include the extra cost for the coil hose and HPA tank and a scuba tank which you need to lug around. Only paintball fields have CO2 and HPA fills on site.

On my AEG, just have an extra battery in my admin pouch that is my back up all day. For GBBR owners, packing gas cans is easy.

If you have the coin there is this custom shop that have GBBR that is powered by the shell/magazine eject system just like the real thing unfortunately their custom rifle starts at $5500 + Mags + Shells

The PS system is byfar teh most efficient and problem free when it comes to operation unlike teh Daytona gun gas there is very little parts/seals that can breakdown, they have CNC parts ready unlike the other GBBR utilizing pot metal, they use HPA instead of Propane and NO cool down effect, the only downside is the coils but I'm ok with it, it's like going back in time playing with my JAC. The fun part about the PS system is on a AEG set up you can run your regular mags instead of the expensive yet fragile GBBR mags. I've put a PS on a stoner SMG eventhough the boxmag was having a hard time keeping up with the gun the solid stream of bbs with the range and accuracy to boot is a dream every airsofter have, I'm almost tempted to say that the amount of white death being put downrange can easily put a PTW to shame.

60oz tank can easily shoot over 3000 shots, on the stoner box mag (1500) I went through almost 4 mags worth before the HPA level drop too low to propel the bbs past 25ft
the tight seal and the efficiency of the system will allow it to only use a very small amount of air to propel the bbs

Everywhere I have seen these discussed it has always been in a sniper rifle setup. Guys like the consistent power they offer, as well as the smooth trigger responce. And they don't seem to care about the line and external tank.

I think it has more to do with the extremely high FPS you can get out of them.
One guy was talking about getting 425fps with .6 BB's, and hitting guys at 400+ feet.

Well I have one being worked on a Socom Gear M82A1, the first time I got this I jerry rigged a innerbarrel to the High output nozzle and fired it in my backyard at one of those heavy claypot planters you buy at Rona (at least 1.75"thick) the distance was over a 35ft pool plus some green space so approximately 70ft with the experimental bastard .66 silicas, the result was quite shocking apparently the first shock cracked the pot but I didn't notice it (no scope) the second one a huge chunk of the claypot broke off. I chrony the jerry rigged contraption it was shooting at an insane speed of 458fps with the highpower nozzle this could have been that teh barrel was pushed right into the nozzle with very little or no movement (so no air seal loss), I was actually glad that I bought three other nozzle as this one would have been absolute no no on the field. The other three were a lot milder ranging from 369fps/.25 to 420fps w/.25

I'm actually looking forward to their V3/LMG release which was delayed, I want a few for my piggies and the M240B

Can't wait to test this puppy out.

I am not to worried about the air line :P
Thanks though!

I am more worried about the FCU/LiPo flopping about in that massive stock, makes a lot of noise and the FCU cable is not quite long enough to get it out of the stock for access to the battery connectors.
Time to buy a replacement stock :P

Looks like I'll have to do the Heat shrink mod on the selector plate as well, I can only get semi out of it. Oh well, I knew that might be an issue going into it.

She shoots GREAT though, I can't wait to get the hopup, rubber, and barrel switched out to a full Promi setup.

Edit:

Fixed auto, results....
