hmmn, well the electra chops once in a while but if you dont put the velocity up too high then i usually get like 1 chop out of 2000 and thats like 3yr old paint. but i wouldnt get the pirahna, go for an electra or an ion...

I can tell you (as an Electra owner) I've never had any chopping issue's with it when it was stock, or even now that its all upgraded. You can get the Electra's for a really good price these day's (I'm sure you've checked that already).

oh man, ur stalking me lol. thats the same hopper im looking at now on ebay. the halo tsa, found it for 49 bucks. they told me the electra shot 10-12 bps so i figured that hopper was good, am i right?

You'd probably be happier with a faster feeding hopper. Say a Halo B or Vlocity. An Evolution II will do fine as well. I know, I have one.

Arg_King
11-09-2006, 02:42 PM
yea, the better the hopper the better, and the gun would probably wont chop and ill get to shoot more bps.but if i waste the money n the gun then i wont be able to buy a good hopper for a while...lol

I would suggest the vs2 for $189 (http://www.actionvillage.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/eCS/Store/en/-/USD/DisplayProductInformation-Start;sid=u95NsKYf_llN8-NLRu2NGKzL87FooyeuuAs=?ProductID=rTzAqArbywEAAAEOX IWgmDPg) and any hopper that you want because it has eyes and wont chop.

Fact: New electra w/eyes and rocking is 250.....
Ion New w/eyes 200

Fact: ELECTRA DOES NOT CHOP....ive prolly put 6-7 thou paintballs thru my gun and havent chopped yet. Keep your gun clean, oiled, and the eyes on and you wont have a problem.

Fact: Piranahs suck!!! Dont buy one, i know its tempting because of price, but you will hate it when your gun chops, wont work, is broke, and u cant play...man up, pay a few more bucks and get some quality.

The new Electra does have an eye. Personally I'd go with the VS2 or VS3.

Yeah, if you can afford to buy an HPA tank, get the vs2 or vs3. Its better (and cheaper) than the electra.

The electra has a few problems, the stock control boards has problems with battery usage, the regulator is not consistant and is slow to recover. The VS 3 has all the features, rocking trigger, eyes, a good reg and most importantly it is LP right out of the box, no need to roll the dice with converting your marker its already set up to rock. Now don't get confused, the Electra rips, however the VS's are the next step, and you can't argue that. The fact that Kingman has not dropped the price of the Electra's somewhat confuses me, but what do I know, I'm just an educated consumer.

true, ur very correct, but i was talking about the electra with rocking trigger but with acs , not the '06.

MVS1
11-12-2006, 02:40 PM
I'm tracking with ya, however I would still go with the VS's, especially with the VS 2 coming in around $185+/-.

if ur interested i might be willing to sell my 05 electra. BNIB only shot for upkeep less than a case through it. ill let it go for $200ish.

Is that with or without eyes? If its without you might want to rethink your price, might be a little high. Not trying to insult ya, just keep'n it real.

Bigwrecker
