2nd Gen Skyforce
By Bill Mills - Sept 2005

Aim Paintball is a company specializing in machined accessory products for paintball.  Their product offerings include drop forwards, aftermarket paintgun bodies and ASAs.

Among the company’s product line is the second generation version of their Skyforce drop forward and ASA.
Compared to their Tidal Rave, the latter model Skyforce system differs from the Tidal Rave in added length.  The Skyforce drop forward features a longer 3/8 inch dovetail rail at its bottom, able to more fully support longer rail mounted regulators.  From front to back, the rail is just under two inches in length, and features a pair of locking set-screws.  Also inline with the set-screws are a pair of industry standard 10-32 screw holes to mount screw mounted ASAs or accessories.

The Skyforce ASA is also longer, matching to its drop forward.  It is simpler in design than the Tidal Rave lacking the de-gassing feature, and having two 1/8 NPT gas ports, one on the bottom and one on the left. 

Cosmetic dual rounded channels are zig-zag cut into the body of the ASA.  The rounded on/off knob has a star shaped pommel, making it easy to grip.  In testing for review it proved easy to grip and turn on and off, and trouble free to operate.
