Does anyone have or have they used the new RAM combat based on the Glock?

I love the Glock and it'd be nice to have something that fits in a Serpa holster. My T8 though reliable, and accurate is massive and heavy. I'm starting to favour having something a bit smaller as my back up rarely gets used anyway.

I'm interested to know the reliability, and accuracy of the marker.

I use a P99 as a back up and really like it. If i'm not mistaken the new glock has the same basic internals as my P99. I have put about 1000 balls through it and never had a break or issue with reliability. You lose quite a bit of distance going from a .68 to the .43 especially with the pistols. The max velocity is 300fps. And a good fps for .43's is 450-500fps. I can pull off head shots consistently as long as the shot is 50ft. or less. Hope this helps. :gunslinger:

i have heard that the combat is MUCH better than the older pistols.
supposably able to shoot as far as the RAM mp5
i am also really interested in it but i think im gunna wait until more reviews can be had and the tippmann pistol comes out.

Muttly - Thanks for the info' and nice to hear someone with 1000 rounds worth of proven reliability I'm impressed. As for distance if I can get a good grouping at 50' that's fine as the pistols only a last stand thing and would only be used up close. How does the .43 paint peform does it break well?

googledotcom24 - Didn't know Tippmann were realeasing a pistol? If it's a 1:1 of a USP firing .68 I have it :)

With the orange shell/fill you get a harder shelled paint which you need because the stock spring pressure is a little much. But at the same time the ball doesn't always break. If you hit your opponent in the mask it will break, but if you hit them in a soft part of their body there is a 50/50 chance that the ball will not break.

I have the Sig 226, and for paint, I use the Gen 2 blue shell, blue fill paint.

I must say this is far better than the orange paint I had previously.

(Sorry for hijacking the thread 8) )

Muttly - hmm that was a worry of mine the paint not breaking sounds like I'd have to make sure I shoot them in the head :)

Ghostwalker - Not at all mate that info' was just what I was after thanks. How does the Sig work out for you? My mate really wants the SIG but we're very wary of RAMs.

Sourcing the .43 ammo might be a choir over here and one of the reasons I got the T8 instead. But as said earlier I hardly use my back up and the T8 is a fair sized piece of steal to be carrying around.

Thanks for the info' guys :thumbsup:

i have heard good things about the RAM50
but not so good things about the RAM226
from what i understand the RAM50 has a couple quirks but they are easy fixes if you are willing to invest some time in them


i would still suggest getting the glock combat over any pistol though.
if you do a google search for the NZTGA you can find some good info from them
they are a group of guys in new zealand who just play RAM on RAM games and they are pretty knowledgeable
and from what ive read over there....the glock combat is the king of the pistols right now.

googledotcom24 - Thanks mate I'd heard dodgy reports on the 226 aswell though I thought the RAM50 was the same. But I think it's the improved version base around the P99 but I'm not 100% on that.

I'll go check over on NZTGA and see their thoughts.

Just a couple of vids of the RAM Combat, RAM50 and P99. Very good walk throughs on the markers. I just hope the guys over his cold now :) They all look to be quite nice. But I'm digging the Glock as I've always liked them since I first seen them.

i have recently bought a RAM X50 and it a piece of work . It has a de cocker with the combat ram doesn't have and it gives the user other operations like the RAM X50 has single action for accurate shots and double action for rapid fire , The RAM COMBAT glock version only has double action . The difference between single fire is hammer is already cocked
and its accurate , double action is un cocked is rapid fire . on that note i like the glock version too that's why i bought both .
RAMs are good but i'll go for the x50 any day

it will de-cock but you need to remove the magazine, pull the slide back, pull the trigger and slowly let the slide forward. allot harder than a De-cock button though.

yes it does, as well as the original glock 17( i think it was 17 or 20 cant remember). A bit silly though having an internal hammer and no external de-cock button.
