The longbow receiver would need modification or the Drone itself? Sorry I think I'm reading that weird but I would like to clarify. I love the Drone but I'm not a huge fan of center feed, and I find I play much better with a limited ammo supply. I'm still picking one of these guns up before next season though.

The Longbow receiver would need the slight modification. The Drone wouldn't need any modification at all except to remove the feedneck.

Cool, thats what I thought you meant. I might try this unless you have the kits already made by then.

What is the DX Drive?

official online catalog page with a picture:

http://macdev.net/st....roducts_id=177

In a nutshell, here is what it does:
1. works in flawlessly cold weather, tested down to 20 degrees F. It still requires a small increase in dwell, but that is expected in cold weather with any marker.
2. Much more consistant velocity on the chronograph
3. Lower operating pressure- 270ish at 95 psi with a good barrel/paint fit.
4. More consistent gas efficeincy-at least 1245 shots with a 68/4500 fill.
5. More reliable operation.
6. Less paint breaks and more consistent cycling (lower pressure operation)
7. Makes the marker louder. This is a feature, not a fault.

The drive train is completely drop-in. No modification is necessary, other than to remove the old one.

The most noticeable difference is the machined air chamber in the back, which makes it reach all the way to the back of the body. Also, the power tube is now milled delrin, and a completely different design. The bolt is now milled AL, and not delrin, and has more o-rings on it. It is not compatable with the droid or clone.

It takes far less pressure to make the gun fire with the new system. With stock DT chronographed at 230ish, the new drive droppin does about 310, without touching the regulator. When turned down to 270 on the new DT, it was about 95 psi output at the reg (insead of 120-130).
