You are able to switch, in no time, between Full-Auto, Semi, Safe and Burst. Moreover, users are constantly commenting on how great it fires and the reason lies in the spool valve system.

It’s actually easy to access it and all you have to do is to remove the back cap. Make sure you lube the bolt also after each use.
