23 April 2009 - 07:39 PMah, you just reminded me of something I may want to add.
and yea, I really like the idea of a cyclone with that tac-cap styled hopper. the only blemish against it for me is that it makes my marker a little more wider ( which isnt so bad seeing as how my arm usually takes up that same space) and the actual price of the cyclone. but thats it.
and just out of curiousity... all the pictures of the Cyclone show it with the 200 round hopper and cyclone and rod thingy's at the and and a new valve. and if it means replacing a my valve and the connecting of a couple rods and such, but im sure thatd not to bad.
OH I would have to also remove the Vertical Adaptor and replace it into the new valve. which means I need to get through red lock-tite.
You will be able to get through the loctite, or you may have the screw that covers the port for the air to power the cyclone already installed on the gun, seeing as it is a custom pro. check it out quick, because the only difference between a regular power tube and the one that comes with the cyclone is the whole to connect the cyclone feed to.

$220 straight up. not a cheap gun, but you get what you pay for. Tippmann has decided to go against the theory that a pistol should be cheap because it's a "sidearm", so I give them credit for making a good-quality pistol.
20 April 2009 - 07:21 PMOk this is the first time i heard of the marker so i googled it and is it just a 98 with some M16 stuff on it or are the internals not the same. And if it is just a 98 then i think its cool since its way cheaper to make into a m16 the a regular 98.
I own both, and the internals on the original 98 custom (not the ACT and all that crud that was later added) are identical to that of the Alpha, apart from some different-length rods to accommodate the newly shaped M16 style body. They fire about the same, and I find that with good paint, the stock barrel is very accurate, though not by any means quiet or light. The gun overall is very heavy compared to my small 98 with its sawn-off and folding stock. It's a good, durable, reliable gun and has given me less trouble than my 98 so try one for yourself.
20 April 2009 - 07:16 PMIf there is any thread that I can add my input on, it is this one. Recently, I replaced the sear and trigger springs that came with my gun originally with similar-length pen springs, which were slightly less resistant. The theory was good, in that it did take less force to fire the marker. In practice with gas attached, however, the concept proved less than effective. The gun was more-easily fired, but a good percentage of the time, the sear did NOT catch the bolt on its return. This caused an automatic-like effect that was not desired. Re-installed the stock springs to my 98, problem solved. You can try adding weaker springs to your marker yourself, but the results may not be as pleasing as you might have imagined.
27 November 2008 - 08:57 PMi hope its cheap, less then $100 then id buy it
compared to the Tiberius 8 for 240-some dollars? I'd buy it if it's under $200. Plus, the front rail mount does look as if it can house a 12-gram C02, which is a really cool new feature that pistols haven't yet seen, so this pistol will definitely be something core scenario players will be noticing. Under $100, then YA, I'll be buying this one.
