Things I liked:After wasting a lot of time and money on mounts that claimed to compensate for barrel droop on my RWS Model 54, but didn't, I finally have a very well made mount base that works perfectly with my Leupold scope and Rws Model 54...and it was the least expensive one too. Things I would have changed:It will probably not need it, but having 4 mounting screws rather than 3 would give it a better grip and more symetrical look.
Things I liked:The concept of having one gun with multiple air power sources for very different conditions is fantastic. I could use HP air from a scuba tank for hunting, and lower pressure but more stable CO2 for competition shooting.
Things I would have changed:Unfortunately, when I went to put concept to practice, the tank appeared to be empty. So I took it to a paintball shop to get it charged. The tech told me the tank was full, but the tank valve was defective. So I contacted Pyramid Air and arranged for a replacement. Despite having to send back my original 12 oz. CO2 tank for having a defective valve, and receiving a replacement, after just a few rounds out of the new tank, the replacement tank has now gone toes-up, and refuses to deliver any of its ample supply of CO2 to my AirForce Condor.
Both CO2 bottles arrived at my home well-packed, and without any sign of mishandling, so I must assume there is a bad batch of valves.
So, what would I change? I would like to see a higher quality valve. Don't use me and my valuable time to quality control your products. What others should know:I doubt I will send this second defective CO2 system back, because I would likely receive a replacement which I have NO CONFIDENCE IN. I have already spent much more than the purchase price running around trying to identify and fix the problem, as well as having to sit out two competition days. For other shooters thinking of getting the CO2 conversion, I suggest you purchase the AirForce valve by itself, and get a high quality CO2 tank from a local source. You are going to need to use a local source to charge the tanks, so you might as well start out a relationship by purchasing a tank from them, which they can service on-sight.
