Xtra Power

Overview

The XPs improved on the Classics initially with one major change: the valve. The firing valve of most of the Classics was a simple pinch valve that closed shut a piece of tubing to stop flow; the XPs used the first pull valve, which operate by retracting a disc from a sealing face, allowing flow. Later on the XPs introduced screw-on reservoir caps--the first few XPs had removable reservoirs like the Classics. In the end, they operated on the same principle as the Classics: the pressure difference between the air in the chamber and in the environment pushes the water out of the gun.

Pros

  • Decent power
  • Improved power over the Classics
  • First series to use reservoir caps

Cons

  • Performance dropoff from use of air pressure
