Shooting a Planet Eclipse Sovereign 1

Here is a quick video we filmed last december we shoot a Planet Eclipse Modified Sovereign 1. I’ll do more of an in depth video on Lada Precision’s Sovereign 1s later on (when I can find some of the others I have) but this video is mostly just showing off this beautiful Eclipse modified Sovereign.

Unique features to the Eclipse modified Sovereign are:
•Venturi Ram bolt
•Custom milling
•Eclipse stickers
•Jacko barrel
•Awesome splash anodizing (if anyone knows the color please lease a comment).
•The frame is cut for a double trigger, which I normally wouldn’t like but at the same time there are brass set screws put into the sides of the frame to eliminate slop. I’m not sure who performed this tweak but the trigger is pretty smooth.
•Wire detent

This was the last video we made in Northern California and we were getting a little rushed and tired so I have to admit I didn’t do a very good job on the trigger. I can partially blame that to the fact my HPA tank was extremely low and you can hear it start venting in the video. I think we started at 600 PSI or so so by the time we got to the end of the video our tank was empty.

This is one of three or so Eclipse modified Sovereigns I’ve seen. Most splash Sovereigns you find are not cut and most Sovereigns that are cut were likely done by BBT.
Probably the neatest modification on this paintgun are the brass set screws in the sides of the trigger receiver to eliminate slop. Not sure if this was an Eclipse modification or done by another shop.

Doesn’t help me avoid chops (well my tank was also nearly empty)…
