Great choice! I have an Octane 9 and I love it.

Yeah, the only reason you NEED to take apart a can is if you're shooting .22 or un-jacketed lead bullets through it. But it still makes it a lot easier to get the carbon buildup out. And the Octane is stronger than the Osprey and it's a heck of a lot easier to change out the piston if you want to put it on a barrel with a different thread pattern.

Also, I have never seen regular-size pistol sights that will let you see over the top of an Osprey; you usually need higher sights even with the Osprey's lower height. But I don't bother with higher sights anyway; as long as you can see the front site clearly it's not a big deal.
