First impression. Solid,
First shot impression. "HOLY F****" Running C02, this thing is loud. Really loud. Power, lots of power. Range, lots of it.
Really something I found to be disappointing at first, but later found to be a "pro in hiding" was the fact these shells are so long, that when I load them into my ICS M203 long type launcher, the end remains in the breach of the tube while the base is still locked by the shell extractor. At first I was quite peeved at the idea of having to fumble with the extractor to remove the shell and reload. It seemed as if these shells would be...impossible to quickly reload with.
But alas, with simple pressure to the base of the shell *you push up and forward* the shell is able to slide forward enough that you may easily remove it from the breach.
MASSIVE PRO, you shell doesn't just flop out and land in the dirt when you want to reload. The motion is quick enough to be effective, yet you keep control over the shell while reloading. Which keep this thing from falling onto the concrete, dirt..w/e.
It is a beast.
People are going to get these now...and I do not look forward to getting blown away by one of these things. Seriously not looking forward to it. The prospect of coming around a corner or through some underbrush knowing that enemy is packing one of these. I would say...daunting.
