Universal Charging Cord
The steel cord visible at the back of the system is attached to a cocking mechanism for the internal spool valve. Although the system automatically cocks the spool valve when the system is pressurized, since the Kythera uses a balanced valve, it is possible in certain situations that the valve could stall and needs to be manually cocked. This typically only happens if the system is run completely out of air so that the pressure drops below the operating range of the system. The cord is designed to be either routed through the grip of the rifle for easy access or even possibly attached in some fashion to the charging handle.
The Kythera SA system installs into a standard gearbox as a single assembly and typically does not require any modification to the gearbox. There are no separate parts to install and the only parts needing to be retained from the gearbox is the trigger, spring guide, selector and safety components.
Wide Velocity Adjustment Range
The Kythera has a wide operating pressure range of 60psi to 180psi which allows you to fine tune the velocity of the system and tailor for different requirements and applications. Within this pressure range we observed a muzzle velocity of 270 - 500fps w/ .20g using a 6.05x380mm barrel. This lets a single Kythera be used in any role ranging from CQB to Sniper by mainly just adjusting the input pressure from your air rig.
Designed from the ground up as a high performance mechanical HPA system, not a modification of a solenoid operated design.
Patent pending valve mechanism provides excellent efficiency and consistent velocity combined with a realistic trigger pull and reset.
Completes a full shot cycle on the trigger pull alone which translates into consistent nozzle movement and rapid follow up shots.
Adjustable trigger. Adjustments include: Weight, length of pull and over travel.
Adjustable nozzle dwell/return speed.
Wide operating pressure range of 60 to 180psi.
