ANS GEN-X3 AUTOCOCKER

gx3_sibe_lg_ex.jpg

this review is about the generation-x chaos series cocker made by ans.This cocker was
my 2nd cocker and the  best cocker i have shot to date.Its looks may be decieving and
con the  customer into thinking it is a much more expensive gun but fear not this
gun is a great price($550) w/ insane performance, easily upgraded and looks to boot.


-performance-

My 1st impressions of the gx3 was amazing i bought it the day after xmas and w/ the help
of bill(www.paintballsupplyshack.com) i got it up and running, and was able to shoot him up
that night to  my desire. Unlike  the stock cocker i had previosuly owned this cocker comes
fully upgraded w/ all very nice  ans stuff(which will be listed later) among these is my
favorite and most commonly upgraded part on a cocker, the trigger.The gx-3s come w/ ans's
quick fire .45 frames, this trigger is freakin sick for a sliding trigger, the way the
factory had it setup up it was impossible to shortstroke which i found to my liking,do
to my incompetant  fingers.Everything was easily adjustable on the gun  so you can set
it to your likings,the only thing i found a nusense was the inline regulator.Its input
pressure adjuster is pretty cool and original but i would rather just stick a allen
wrench and turn.Thats about it for performance top notch shit from ans.


-looks-

Not that i dwell on the looks of my guns, but out of the box the gx3s look amazing w/ any
fade,splash,solid colors and even matte finsihe, and very nice streamlined milling
that has matching accereies such as a backblock,front bloack,bolt,trigger,and feedtube.
i was very impressed w/ the precison of the milling and the qulaity of my blue to black fade
gx-3, there was only one flaw on mine  due to the early production of my particular gun,
and that is the feedtube came off, at fist i thought it was becasue of my overwelming biceps
but  then realised that the feedtube had not ben locktied on, after lockiting it on it was
good to go.

-upgrades-

Out of the box you will need a barrel becasue these do not come w/ one.I suggest a freak becasue
of the oiption to change bore size at will,but if your on a budget like i was i would pick
up  cp barrel they are great barrels and come in many bore sizes and color, and if you
buy direct from ans they will ano it to match the gun.If you dont like sliding triggers
you will probably be purswayed buy the quickness of the quickfire, but if you arnt i would
recomened  any type of hinge(all prefernce) except the shochtech which i think is ugly as
sin.Thats about it for upgrades besides the common 12v revy and nitro(or co2)

-conclusion-

the ans is a very good cocker and possibly the best "bang for the buck" in paintball history.
I recommend this gun for any cocker lover.I myself has since converted to an other gun
becasue i just cant shoot a cocker for shit. btw i just wanted to say that ans has top notch
people working there, i had recently sent my gun away and they said they wouldnt be able to
fix it for 6 weekks, but then said they would give me a brand new on for free do to the
inconvience they had caused me. so good luck and happy balling.. and make sure to offer your
extra paint to those super cool korupt kidz...

WGP STOCK AUTOCOCKER

Bullseye Titan Autococker

Bullseye has charted a different course than other custom shops; developing a custom cocker, with performance in mind, and few gimmicks. Theyve chosen to use time-tested parts, as well as some traditional, (and forgotten) ideas to create a true shooting experience.

The Lowdown

Keeping with tradition, the Bullseye Titan is built around a WGP STO body, with a nice evolution length Reversed P-block. A moderately sprung AKA Tornado valve, and ACI hammer kit fill the bottom tube, while an Evolution-length AKA Lightning bolt with pull-pin fill the top. A standard ball detent fills out the body.

A standard benchmark grip frame has been tapped down the front for the mounting of a front set screw to limit pretravel of the trigger, which was composed of extra-wide trigger plates, and STO sear. Vertical travel was removed by use of front and rear set screws. Interesting enough, Bullseye made use of the older style slotted plates, rather than the newer WGP hole style, evident in the STO since 99. Hogue grips wrap the grip frame.

The front block was held on by a stainless steel gas block screw, rather than the low pressure chamber one would expect. Pneumatically, the test Titan uses predominately STO parts, only with some additional tweaking. Both the STO ram and STO 4way have received additional internal polishing, making them glassy smooth, while they are fed by a comfortable ANS Jackhammer II. The timing rod is a standard Lapco of the Stainless Steel variety.

The Titan, though with a wondrous trigger, had some peculiarities, such as the lack of low pressure setup, and mostly WGP equipment. The use of a WGP ergo regulator as well as the STO pneumatics, body and style, cause a bit of unease, making the marker look, feel and respond similarly to a modified STO.

Summary

Performance-wise the efficiency of the Titan was comparable to most other custom cockers. Though I would normally prefer increased efficiency, returns of 1100 or so shots on a 68/3000 adjustable tank werent out of the ordinary. Consistency was quite good, plus or minus three fps, however the marker shines in its durability and easy of use. The trigger pull was smooth through out, even in weight for all 3 mms, including in the re-cocking stage. There was no traditional hard break and feathery soft feel Ive found in other similar trigger jobs. With an out-the-door price of about $1350, the Titan is well in the price class of the newer Revenge V2s, Shocktech SFLs, and Lockout Edition Freeflow Cockers. The milling is tasteful and smooth, with the anodizing schemes (in the case of the test marker the Envy series Splash), consistent and thick. The price tag however is a bit large for a marker not set up for low pressure, as well as with limited milling and anodizing options. All things considered, the trigger pull more than makes up for the lackluster and traditional feel.
