First a bit of an admission. Seems that my assessment of the Moscart as having a fixed hop is a load of old cobblers, in as much as the hop chambers can be rotated to set the hop pattern. It might not be worth much as a feature, but as I missed it from my original review I thought I would have it here.

Right, the barrel set then. First off, for 6,800 yen she's cheap enough and made from good, machined ally as she is, she's light enough. But what else is there to say…..?

Just like the other barrel sets out there, this is effectively a number of spring loaded barrels which engage with a grenade and increase the power of the shot by extending the overall travel of the BBs before they leave the weapon (I don't understand the physics, but it seems to work so…..). Unlike other sets though, the Moscart set has not hop - the grenades themselves being supplied with the necessaries in that regard.

I have to put a hole in my lovely M79? Fitting is easy enough. Simply a case of putting a 3mm hole into the main barrel, sliding the inner barrels down and fixing the lot in place with a small allen screw (note for M79 users - you will need to file down the screw once it is in place as the front grip sits flush with the barrel).

first you have to come to terms with drilling a hole in this beauty
Word of warning though. As you will probably have worked out, CAW seriously advises that you don't use grenades other than the Moscart with this setup.

That's it. That's all yer have to do…..

Gas a shell up and blow em away………

New and improved! BTW, the second edition of the Moscart is out now. New packaging and an improved (?!) construction (all durally or Ally now - no brass hop chambers). A little lighter and better cut on the main threads, the bearings in the valve lock don't show quite such a tendency to come out as with the first edition. (same price - 4,980 yen).

"Warning alien approching.." Another word of warning. Do not fill a Moscart grenade all the way to the top, not if you want the HOP packing and O-rings to stay where they should be. 2 second's worth of gas is enough for most situations and a complete fill will, though giving you one massively fun hit on someone and shroud the whole field in a truly Baskervillian mist, run the risk of terminally ruining your cart (as Fred and I did). Moreover, for the UK/US types, CAW gave us the following fill patterns based on ambient temp (we have not checked these out though):

  • 30 celcius and above 1 seconds fill
  • 25-29 celcius 2 seconds
  • 18-24 celcius 3 seconds
  • 17 celcius or below put her away and take out the AEGs for a game.

Boom! So, you gas up a grenade and take her out. What can you expect. Well, a bloomin good increase in range I can tell you. With the hops all aimed up we found that the increased power keeps the BBs groups in a rough 5 foot circle for about 20 metres before the hops sends them on the up and down ride. Young Fred actually hit me at around 30 metres (with all of about 2 BBs and the wind in his favour, but that still counts in game^_^).

Not going to bother with the usual list of out of 5 scores here as most don't really apply, but I will say this. On the way home from testing, we saw the Airsoft Police arresting any ANGS grenades which were seen in public and even the First High Pressure jobs were being escorted peacefully off local shops under guard. In all seriousness though, Mr. Ito confirmed that Sanko will be cutting its stocks of the ANGs and First grenades from now on, so impressed as he been with the Moscart.

I said before that the Moscart has pretty much rendered other grenades meaningless, IMHO (if anyone wants any cheap First HP grenades please get in touch), and this barrel has only confirmed the Mossy as the number one BB blaster in Softyland.
