Today i got my Massacer Kit for the Alpha Trooper By Orange Mod works(OMW). Please take into mind my blaster is like a year old and is somewhat worn down so many problems i have you may not run into.
This review will not contain pictures or video due to the fact they can easily be found on OMW's site

So to start off I got it in the mail and immediately installed it into my blaster and when i put it back together and tried to prime it, the bolt needed like one mm more of movement(which i could do by reaching in and pushing it from where the jam door was) then the gun would let me, due in part to the age of the gun but mostly the strength of massive 6Kg(or like 13 pounds) spring. I epoxyed the priming bar to the priming handle and tighten the screw holding it to the bolt sled. but that still wouldn't let me prime that last bit. I soon figured out that it was the metal catch that was to hard to move(friction of metal on plastic) and tried the plastic one(with the new catch spring) and now it works fine. More then likely that problem was due the little amount of lubricant i put on it so if your doing this put a decent amount of lub on it.

Now the parts them selves are awesome, I have no problem with them. Its also worth mentioning that to prime it you must do it quickly or it wont catch, but that no big deal for anyone who has use a powerful nerf gun.

EDIT:Ranges are here
Ranges will very for eveone
Flat shots with stock streamlines
First set (for some reason all these darts wanted to dive more then float, and some fish tailed)
44
49
50
57
62
Second set (no fish tails, this was the better set
53
55(worth noteing that it bounced like 10 feet after hitting at 55)
A cluster of 4 around 64 with one about 5 feet to the right.


Pros and Cons
Pros
-Super nice parts
-Very strong of a reverse plunger
-longer life even with the 6Kg spring

Cons
-Not cheap
-Not safe for little kids(but who cares)
-A bit difficult to get working(Other people have not had my problems but still)
-takes a bit to get used to priming it.

Over all I would give it a 8/10 and very its worth it even at $40.

Any Question, Comments,etc are welcome

Not to rain on the "OMW Review" parade, but could you guys please post very detailed RANGES? I think this is the most helpful thing, as I think many of us want to know if these things actually give better performance than your average AR-removed, spring upgraded blaster. Otherwise, ty for detailing all the difficulties you had with this kit. Would just like to see what the payoff was!

While I can't answer for socal, I haven't had a chance to do a proper range test, I will be doing one tomorrow and will update my review as such.

Anyone who has used streamlines would know that they aren't reliable enough to range test, in the few shots i took i got any where from 50-80 and more if the dart flies right.But I didn't post ranges cause it will be different for a lot of people due to the nature of streamlines

Then how were you able to give an accurate review of the kit when you didn't even know the effect on good darts?

While I have an AT. I don't have the massacre kit for it only the 5kg spring. I was more refering to my review of the Raidet kit since it sounded like a joint complaint rather than posting both of our reviews
