Electra's Updated Features
Well she not only looks hot but is the single most updated kingman ever and even pulls away from even the recent marker such as the VS2.
-Top cocking Quick Strip Bolt
-decent quality 2 piece barrel
Pulling away from the VS2
-Claming instead of Twist-lock Feedneck
-Tadao board with several commonly used modeds
-Blade trigger with magnetic return
-Reg uses the standard reg threads (ASA)
-Frame Forward + Shortend Body (allows for better perfomance
Now the question is to balance vavle or to SE valve. Someone along the way may have lead you astray and told you that the VS2 couldn't work on CO2, well they lied. While using CO2 on the VS2 may void your warrenty its will still operate like any spyder or gun for that matter on CO2.
Electra not only can use CO2 without voiding the warranty but the valve is far more efficient. With the balance valve your paying the price for a even sub 300psi Lower Operating Pressure and will probably only ever expect to get 1300-1500 shots per 68/45 tank/ 20oz CO2. On the other hand your have a SE valve operating around 300psi will expect to stretch that to 1500+ shots per equal tank. VicReschke of Pbnation has properly tuned his RS using the same valve and see's consistently 1800+ shots using a 20oz CO2 tank that is anti-siphoned.
Well both guns are Low pressure spyders capabilities of meeting or exceeding your needs as a spyder enthusiast. While you can pick up a VS2 for less than 100 dollars and the Electra can be bought for MSRP still I would say that the Electra is a clear win. Everything you want in a spyder is in this very spyder to some degree or another and very little if any money will be spent on so called "upgrades" when your purchase your Electra.
the electra, would be the new 09' electra ?
any info on the rsx ?
