ANS Gen-X Autococker VS STO Autococker

I wanted to get your opinions on which is a better paintgun.  The ANS
Gen-X autococker or the factory STO Autococker.  The price seems to be
about the same.  Please mail me directly if possible:

 
 
 

ANS Gen-X Autococker VS STO Autococker

Post by VM Ra » Fri, 12 Feb 1999 04:00:00

I dont have an STO or a GEN X, but i have a stock***er with all the stuff the
GEN X has excpet the regulator, I have the stock WGP inline reg.  No LP chamber
though.  An ANS bolt, and front Extreme Pneumatics system.  Really sweet setup.
 Shoots long and true.  But if you like the centerfeed body, the STO is your
choice.

Both are good guns.  The cool thing about the STO is the centerfeed body.
Other than that, the upgrades on the ANS are a lot better and it handles
like a dream.

I asked about the ANS***er on the www.paintballresource.com message
board, this is what I got back:

+----+

Seriously, from all I have heard and seen - it is a very nice***er,
if they're your thing. Apart from adding a colored Revolution and
cosmetic upgrades, it is pretty well set. The Jackhammer is a good
reg, and the ANS 4-way valve is also supposed to be good. The only
other gun that has as good a reputation (not counting Westwoods, and
high end Evolutions and other $1500 dollar guns) is the Palmerized
***er.

Check out Ravi's page for reviews of the P&P - a good and not always
expensive custom***er, and other high end specialty***ers. I am
surprised he hasn't reviewed a Gen-X.

Also, the new Gem series colors of the Revolution and VL bow go great
with the ANS colored parts....

Good luck,

The Gen-X is claimed to be an LP***er, but falls short. I like the
Jack Hammer, but dont personally care for the rest of thier front
parts on a***er, they just don't hold up at times. I have seen way
to many posts about leaks with thier rams and 4-ways. The Barrel on it
is a large bore barrel, so unless you use First Choice, BE, or maybe
Neslon, you will not like its performance. The trigger on it is very
good, but not easy for the ameture***er tech to keep in time. With
thier design there is no room for error at all in timing it, and any
slip, or wear results in going out of time. Now thats not bad, but
just something you should know, as it could be a problem for some
people.
Basicaly if you want a gun thats flashy, and doesnt cost much and is
pretty decent then its not a bad choice. I just have to suggest you
take a look at other options. I still feel the Deluxe with Mammoth is
better in all catagories but the trigger, and then its not worse, just
a bit easier to deal with as the average Joe***er owner, and still
damn short and light!

For what its worth BullsEye did a review on the Gen-X!

??? Shitty trigger, that is one of the reason why people like the ANS***er
is **because** of the trigger job. BUT you need to know and be able to
handle a short trigger pull, that is you can be a --------> short-stroker.

If u aren't looking specifically for a centerfeed***er, i would just
go with a stock***er and upgrade from there.. although it would be a
little bit more expensive, you can make the gun to how u want it.. the
STO, IMHO is a waste of money for a centerfeed***er + a tiny trigger
job.  The ANS has a lotta ***on it, and is a very good value, but
personally i don't like the trigger, if u like the trigger on the ANS,
by all means, get it, it is a very good value, and i probally would
have one if it wasn't for the shitty trigger on it.

What's wrong with the trigger on the ANS?

in the 3 ANS***ers i've shot, the trigger was SHORT, but it was
sprung much too heavily, i don't know if it was for reliability, or if
their 3-way needs the harder springing, but the trigger was too hard
for my liking.  The other part of the trigger that i didn't like was
that the sear release was VERY VERY ***.  the reason behind this,
is that because the trigger was so short, and the sear that to just
BARELY catch the lug, the sear lug had to be rough and sharp edged so
that it would catch the sear reliably and still allow for release in
the first part of the TINY pull.. i personally like my***er triggers
to be around 3.5mm and to be VERY soft.  but if u like short/hard
triggers, and dont' mind *** sear/lug interface, you'll probally
be able to hammer on the ANS trigger faster than hell... personally i
did not like the trigger job, i probally shouldn't have said "shitty
trigger"  without adding (shitty trigger) "to me".. sorry if i got ne
of u guys mad :)
