    26 w/o shootdown for the RT/retro

    im not sure about other guns. But I know the RT is the fastest valve on the market today.

    Beware, there is a diffrence between cycling and cycling w/o shootdown.

    i've seen a video of a regular mag doing 16 with no shootdown. but i think the average from gun to gun would probably be more around 13 or 14.

    Can you tell if a marker is downshooting? do the balls visibly drop quicker or does the gun cough or something?

    balls will start to fall shorter. your velocity will drop off.

    a regular mag will have shootdown at 16bps. a regular mag can do about 12 before shootdown will occur.

    no the balls don't drop faster. they simply don't go as far. Newton's law of gravity says that any two objects of equal size and mass, one dropped and the other fired perfectly horizontally at the same time, will hit the ground at the same time.

    shoot down will also depend on how the air is run. using a gas through grip or external reg or micro, macro, steel line, they make a difference.

    it wasn't modified in any way. just a stock valve assembly. i dont remember what video but i'm sure you could find it somewhere.
