Hey guys, found myself a spare hour where the Mrs and the kids aren’t home - so instead of you know… I did some tests on the Abbey Green 144a vs Abbey Red Predator on a bunch of different GBB blasters. These are all done with 3hrs Xforce Black Labels at 7.0-7.1mm.
The TEH Azreal TTI 2011 does not have the metal poppet.
Not all the possible combinations was tested because I wasn’t organised.
GE Hicapa Silver 4.3 - with GE Hicapa Mag
Green Avg 221.5, largest variation 16.2
Red Avg 246.9, largest variation 35.9
GE Hicapa Silver 4.3 - with Tactical Tomato Mag
Green Avg 242.2, largest variation 47.6
Red Avg 259.2, largest variation 50.2
GE 1911A2 - with GE Single Stack Mag
Green Avg 231.6, largest variation 30.8
Red Avg 251.2, largest variation 45.2
APS XTP - with DB G34 Mag
Green Avg 247.9, largest variation 56.1

TEH Azrael TTI 2011 - with DB TTI 2011 Mag
Green Avg 181.6, largest variation 40.3
Red Avg 222.8, largest variation 26.2
TEH Azrael TTI 2011 - with Tactical Tomato Mag
Green Avg 193.1, largest variation 23.1
Red Avg 189.5, largest variation 44.0
DB TTI 2011 - with DB TTI 2011 Mag
Green Avg 290.5, largest variation 43.3
Red Avg 286.2, largest variation 42.9
DB TTI 2011 - with Tactical Tomato Mag (forgot I actually did this one but posted in another thread)
Green Avg 264.35, largest variation 24.5
Red Avg 296.65, largest variation 66.2
DB TTI G341 - with DB TTI G34 Mag
Green Avg 292.7, largest variation 36.7
Red Avg 282.3, largest variation 54
Most interesting to note is that whilst the Red Predator generally performs better than 144a, the exceptions are the DB blasters with their default mags and TEH Azrael TTI 2011 with the Tactical Tomato mag where the 144a outperforms Red Predator by a small (with the margin of error) amount.
Using an Acetech AC6000, there were some quirks with it - I’d say 1/10 of the rounds would not read even if it came in and out as one single piece. I got a read of zero - not that it didn’t read, but it displayed the round that went through it as zero fps.
