A-5 has the same efficiancy as a 98. With any RT/Cyclone upgrades on either gun it remains the same. The blowback happens after the propelling stage. The extra blowback is a lot more than you think. Efficiancy has been tested and it has concluded same, or very close efficancy.

You may experiance higher velocity with co2 because of spikes, inconsistant pressure, ect.

Do you think an apache would be able to keep up with the Super RT? I've heard they can feed close to 20bps.

Ricochets are agitating hoppers meaning they can not consistantly and steadily feed over 16bps. It should be fine for short bursts just under 20, but not very reliable for much if anything else. tigman250 has an Apache and Super RT, he could give you a more direct answer/advice.

whom did the efficany test you refer to. i've heard that an a5 with it's cyclone feed and an rt will have more shoot down and to over come this you have to up the velocity , hence you would use more air/co2!!

Nooooope. The valve has pretty much a two-step function. Step one is the propelling of the ball where the gas goes from the valve, through the recessions in the valve body, and down the powertube/bolt. Immediantly after this split second, the valve spring starts to push the bolt back, changing the path of the air from the powertube/front bolt to the rear bolt out of the valve body. Within this area is a "notch" like part in the valve body which leads to the hole in the powertube to the RT and out of the valve to propell the rear bolt.

And even if you did have to turn up the velocity to cope with any loss, it changes no efficiancy. The velocity screw simply diverts flow through the powertube; the valve is still struck with the same force. A gun with the v-screw all the way in will get the same efficancy with the screw all the way out.

Same (actualy more) shots with RT than without it.

Even if that were true, due to the way tippmanns adjust velocity you still wouldn't be using any more gas. Tippmann simply adjust the flow of air instead of the amount of air itself when you adjust velocity, so your using the same amount of air wheather your shooting 180fps or 300fps

Edit: darn you trig
