Default New Empire Ram Sleeve Upgrade

Just thought I'd let all the curious timmy owners know that there is a new drop in replacement ram sleeve (made by empire) for the 2k2/2k5 style markers. It's a new pressure balancing sleeve that allows you to drop your lpr pressure (thus less kick) and a more consistent valve (poppit) opening (better accuracy and a lower dwell)
Here's the review froma respected intimidator owner (paintballer187). This product is said to be released by NPS this week. I'd get with Durrell on ordering one as I plan on doing.

Let's chat.

I carry them, they're going to be running about 185. I imagine that will beat everyone else, haven't heard word of a MAP price yet.

hmm, I heard msrp was $190 but I heard we were going to be able to purchase them at $90. Knowing pbn, this may have been an arbitrary statement but look into it for us D.

Sounds like it could be nice, but from his review it doesn't sound like the change is very drastic.

Well from the looks of things my dealer price is WAY higher than 90, so I'm not sure..

That sucks, $190 just for a ram sleeve upgrade is insane, what's empire and NPS thinking?

$100, great price from what I've seen most dealers are selling them for. I'm going to wait until I see some reviews from members of pbn and see if it's really worth it.
