I was trying to find out if the Promaster has multi firing modes, but couldn't find anything. This led me to believe that it is semi atuo only.

Is this true?

If not, then what modes does it have?

Can I somehow get it to fire in ramping, burst, and full auto?

I know many people disapprove of others using modes other than semi and if they can't shoot 15BPS with their own fingers then they have no need to "cheat" to do so. Well, I have been able to achieve 7-8BPS on some markers in the past, but not for very long periods of time. Aprove or not I want 3 round burst and around 10BPS full auto and would like to know if this marker can be made to do so if not already when stock. I don't play at any fields because we don't have any locally, so that isn't an issue. Also, many of the guys I play with use E-Triggered Spyders, E-Gripped or R/T Tippmanns, Ions, or similar. Now I know that just because so and so has a marker that shoot's 20+BPS doesn't mean I'm at that much of a disadvantage only shooting 5-8BPS, but I still want the ability nonetheless. I think the Promaster may have some sort of ramping mode, but I don't full understand ramping. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It is not strictly semi. It has ramping and full auto.

You gas up the marker, put on the gloves, strap on the mask, and walk onto the field.. it doesn't matter that you failed a test, that your girlfriend broke up with you last night, or that you got a ticket on the way there...your world is right for the next couple hours, this is your heaven on earth... live it... love it..

How the hell could you stop me? Why in the world would you try? I go hard forever that's just how I'm designed, that's just how I was built.

I just found that it supposedly has semi capped/uncapped, Ramp/uncapped Ramp, Ramp Auto/uncapped Ramp Auto, Burst Ramp/uncapped Burst Ramp. I don't understand what it means by Ramp Auto and Ramp Burst. With Ramp I thought you had to keep up a certain BPS and it would suddenly double what your shooting so to speak. How can you do Ramping with a burst? And Ramp Auto sounds just like plain old Ramping to me. Am I missing something here? I just don't get it.

BTW, thank you Prodigy for informing me that it does have other modes. You say it has auto, now how does it work on full auto? Do you just hold down the trigger or do you have to keep up 5BPS or something? Do you own or have you used one to know how this works?



And could you explain it to me?

I don't understand Ramping Auto Or Ramping Burst. Does anyone here understand how these ramping modes work and able to explain them to me?

I didn't think it had that many modes, and some sound like different ways of phrasing the same thing...


You're generally correct on ramping

Well it's only four firing modes that can be capped at like 15BPS or uncapped.

So, I'm correct on Ramping, but how would Ramping Auto or Ramping Burst work?

Ramping auto means that you have to pull the trigger 3 times to get it up to speed and then you hold it down and it is full auto. Same with ramp burst but it is with three shot burst instead of full auto.

A stock promaster board has semi, ramp, ramping burst, and ramping auto all in capped and uncapped. I think a lasoya promaster is different though.

The Lasoya has different programming modes such as bounce and bps from like 8 to unlimited.
