Review

The XP 110 is a great gun for backyard soakfests and casual summer fights at the park. The weight balance is near perfect, the pumping is smooth, it only takes 10 pumps to reach max power, and it’s even got a pressure guage. I love firing this gun one-handed, which is something that you can’t do so easily with other guns this size. I’m also a huge fan of the colors and the translucent reservoir and pressure chambers. This gun is a classic.  For 1hk, 1hs, or ctf games you will most likely be overmatched by CPS opponents due to their range advantage. However, this gun can be used effectively for ambushes or flag rushes if you can get in close enough.

There are 3 structurally weak points on the gun: the pump, the joint between the pressure guage and the rest of the gun, and the reservoir shell. The pump is very quick, and pushes an adequete amount of water into the pressure chambers (10-11 pumps isn’t bad), but it is placed at the very front of the gun, so it’s easy to snap off if someone falls on it. I recommend doing a pump reinforcement just in case. The joint where the pressure guage connects to the rest of the internals is weak and is known to break. I was easily able to repair this by mixing up some JB Weld, applying it to the broken joint, and clamping it on for a day. It stopped the flow of water to the guage, and thus, the pressure guage no longer works, but the rest of the gun still works perfectly. Lastly, make sure you don’t drop an XP 110 on concrete or other hard surfaces. The plastic used on the reservoir is thin enough to crack if enough force is applied.
