A flaw with the Alpha Trooper?? The gun workes great stock, and the priming rod is not flimsy and prone to breaking. It is the addition of this kit, with its too-powerful spring that is breaking the gun. The Alpha Trooper is not flawed. OMW should make a stronger priming rod that comes with the kit if they are going to sell it with the 6lb spring.


I have seen OMW's posts on the alpha trooper kit, they said it was a tough decision to include the 6kg spring. However because they only tested 1 kit and one alpha, they did not catch any of the problems people have been having. Trust me, if they had included te 5kg spring, hardly anyone would be having any problems. There would be no way for them to consistently create a perfect priming rod strong enough to support the 6kg spring.

And why not? Metal manufacturers sell set-strength rods. OMW could easily buy a bulk order, and shape it themselves. They certainly seem to have the equipment. Or, they could simply sell the kit with the 5lb spring.

I agree with the spring replacement, but because OMW does all the kit creations over sees, by factory, I don't think the factory would submit to forming individual priming rods for the kits. This is just my 2 cents of course.

UPDATE

In lieu of the many complaints about the Alpha Trooper Kit especially, OMW have decided to change their kit. Many users ( including myself) have found problems with the 6kg spring, i now use a 5kg in mine, due to the flimsy priming rod.

OMW said this in their latest email:
In order to address the various concerns regarding the reliability
of our Alpha Trooper Massacre Kit, we have started shipping new
orders with the 5kg spring (instead of 6kg), and an o-ring pad in
the plunger. This pad gives the plunger an extra 2-3mm of travel,
necessary to compensate for any travel distance lost from the metal
priming rod flexing.

The 5kg spring will further increase the durability of this kit by
reducing the stress placed on the metal priming rod during use.
Using the 5kg spring will result in a slightly lower muzzle
velocity when compared to the 6kg spring, but the overall firing
range is not reduced, due to the fact that stock streamlines are
more stable when traveling around 70-80 feet per second.


Now, all kits will not need as much reinforcing and have the plunger travel increased as standard - solving any problems. Just proves that they listen to our feedback!

Exactly, as a matter of fact, the only reinforcement I have needed is for the priming handle, the rest of the kit works flawlessly, the way it should.

I reinforced my priming rod and my AT kit holding up fine. But I do have a question, for everyone who did pre-order the kits with the 6KG spring, are we able to get the 5KG spring free if there are problems with the 6KG, or does the spring still have to be bought?
