This gun is much more powerful than I will need. I keep it on a lower power setting until I need to torque sub frames etc. The gun really is as quiet as I had hoped it'd be. The only drawback with the gun is its weight. It's still lighter than most other guns, but it is heavier than the less powerful IR ti version. No an issue, but it is worth considering. What's not worth considering is getting another gun other than the qtimax.
