Default Double cone

Can you not try it full length first with the Ev stripper ?
The twin cone is supposed to work wonders Dave.

Based on my ev2 carbine and plenty of time spent with various ftps
It's highly unlikely.
The rowan stripper out performs the eV one significantly too.

I did find that increasing the reg pressure helped reduce any flip and smothed the firing cycle massively.

Take the tank muzzle off the front and replace with a shimmed twin cone.

if you get rid of anymore will it not be classed as a pistol

just had the reg and stripper done on mine by mr Ostler, its come back a totally different gun, much lighter and certainly more consistent over the chrono, here,s a pic
