Well, took it to the range.

As to how it shoots, feels, sounds, accuracy, etc - you all know already.  It shoots just like a 98 - not surprising, given that it has all 98 internals.  The barrel is a stock 98 barrel (although I slapped a Freak on it right away).

On semi (this is the electro version) it is just like shooting a stock e-grip/e-bolt.  Much faster than a mech, but not exactly walkable.  I expect that regular e-grip trigger mods will apply, which could make it much faster.

On 3-round burst I was outshooting the Revvy.  I will try the full auto/ramping modes when I remember to bring my HALO.

It did uncock on a few occasions at high ROF.  This may be due to using nitro with the integrated x-chamber.  It may be that the gun will work better with CO2.

Overall, I am very impressed.  It is a 98 in a very sturdy package, completely self-contained.  No hoses, attachments, or anything else.  Completely plug-n-play, which is exactly as it should be.  Other than BE guns, most other "beginner" guns still require a reasonable amount of handiness to figure out what to attach where.  Not so with this.

I'll have to get back to BFG soon to give it a whirl in a real game.

Kind of ramping.  It's their "safety full auto".  Fire four shots in one second, and it goes full auto after that.

True.  I should have stated it clearer.  With my Angel I can walk the trigger easily (although not well).  With the Triumph it was strictly "pull the trigger fast".  A better walker than me could probably shoot much faster.  I would be very surprised, however, if the average Triumph buyer would be able to to that.

But, as noted, some spring switches or mag mods, some trigger stops and limiters, and this could be pretty sweet.  My biggest gripe personally is that the trigger is so contoured.  I prefer more of a straight trigger, but is really just a matter of taste.

Why would you say that?  You have obviously never held one of these.

This gun is as solid as any of my other guns.  Like I said earlier, if I drop the gun, I am more worried about the loader, tank, and barrel than I am about the gun.

And I have no reason to expect that it will be any less reliable than a 98 Custom, since the internals are all the same.
