View Full Version : Q-loaded Avant

Here's my wonderful E-99 avant. My first gun. bought it umm....about 9 months ago hah. it has the q-loader, kingman acs bolt (top cocker converted to rear cause it was 5 bucks cheaper) 32* spring kit, modified valve pin, standard kingman regulator, eclipse mini gauge, 16in empire twister barrel, and polished internals. After a bunch of recocking issues (had to oil every o-ring in the gun to get it running right) i found out that it runs very nicely at 400-500psi. i've been battling a bunch of little leaks so it couldn't run that low till now. I'm planning on drilling my VA out a bit, and buying a madman rocket valve, and a t-board. not sure yet if i'll install the eyes, with the q-loader i shouldn't have to, but i might change my mind.
well, here it is!!

I'm a fan of the QLoader but the nay-sayers will be in soon. Nice setup!

I like it too. Good low profile on it. Can we get some different views of it like from the top and front?

That looks pretty cool... but you might want to invest is a better reg?....

Yeah, slap a CP reg on it and Drill out your VA.. Ohh, and get an HPA tank, and you will have your self a nice little Marker..

If that's the gas-through I think it is, he's going to have to replace the VA to add an in-line reg...but I agree, an in-line reg like a torp, ergo or CP on an assault block or trinity would be sweet. A nice on/off like a Unimount or CP would top it off nicely.

Actually i can just add the reg to the gun by removing my expansion chamber. my sig has the list of parts i'm going to add to my gun. anyways, i love my cocking knob, it's all rubber bands, so it's super squishy.

Here are some more pics
Front Shot (fake shooting hah)
Rubberband cocking knob (looks like the tail end of a bee or wasp)
Maskingtape LED filter
As for the VA and such, it's a normal VA with an ASA on the bottom attached currently to an expansion chamber

very cool. thanks for the pics. almost shot the camera there, eh? haha. how heavy is the back end of the gun with the loader & tank on there? Or is it pretty balanced?

How hard was the Q-Loader to install and set up?
And is filling the pods that much of a pain that you need 2 people?
Druid feel free to chime in.
Isn't there a way you can mount the qloader on the top without using the tube at all? Yeah, I imagine you would need to do some modification, but that would get rid of the tube.. Maybe..

there's an adaptor for it, but it makes it as high as a hopper. but i like how i have it. it's super balanced. there's no weight on the barrel so it's easy to aim and fire super fast. as for setting up and stuff, i have a revvy hooked up to the crank thing, it's easy to load that way and a lot faster. i dont' want to get rid of the tube, it gives it a certian look. anyways i have a lot of work flow wise cause it still runs 700-800psi. (checked everything today and realized it cycles at 250 and at 400 it runs decent, but i can't get much for fps, and at 800 i can get it running perfect. tommorow, i'm drilling the VA and Valve)
anyways, you'd be amazed at how comfertable it is holding and shooting. you rest the pod on top of your shoulder, and brace the bottle with your arm, and you can walk the trigger holding the gun with one hand while aiming perfectly. of course...it kicks like a b**** right now cause it doesn't flow well enough hah it deffinetly caps at 14 very easily. unloaded a full pod in about 10s
anyways, i'm glad everyone likes my little gun. when it's complete, i'm hoping for 40bps at 300psi at 280-290fps. think it's do-able?

where did u get the wholl q oader setup i have the same gun and barrel.
08-10-2006, 06:08 PM
i bought the setup direct from the q-loader site. i think it was 80 somethin bucks including 2nd day shipping. I'm kinda annoyed at my gun right now. mostly because the other night when i had it running at 400psi, it wasn't really shooting very fast. today i chucked in the stock spring (light valve stock main) and cranked it to 800 before i got a lot of speed. i can't crank the velocity all the way in, it's to heavy of a spring for that lol.
How do ya like the barrel? i don't see many people with them. Personally, i love it lol

i usually play woodsball, so for the most part, whatever i can buy in large quantities at the time for what cash i've got. whcih usually means Scorch. from wally's lol. it fires nice in my gun without any problems, but i liked X-ball Gold more.
