The Cyrano 110 is a beautiful gun, fast and powerful, but you need to do two things IMHO:

1. get rid of the power regulator. You'll be amazed of the difference in power an 11 mm barrel pneumatic gets from that mod. If you need a 110, you are rarely if ever going to need the regulator anyway (I mean you'd probably use the gun in the max power position all the time, so take the regulator off and enjoy the 20% increase in power)
2. the Cyrano's piston and internal 11mm barrel can also accomodate 8mm spears. But you need to open up the muzzle to accept the 8mm or (cleaner job) get a Sten spare muzzle and fit it to the Cyrano. The 8mm spear makes it much easier to load and shoot big fishes, as the shafts don't bend that easily anymore

With 8mm spears and no power regulator, the Cyrano is a great gun.
