Review: Wow. This must be the nicest gun for the price. It blows away impy's and my old omen. It keeps up nicely w/ higher end guns. The stock board is very fast but the chaos board will add better eye logic, debounce, dwell, and will allow you to shoot even faster. Mine came w/ the newer reg and it recharges nicely and is relatively consistent +/- 6. A new reg is nice but you can live w/ the stock. The anno is very strong and matches well.
I have used this marker a few times now at my local field and it has performed nicely. It is relatively efficient. It has had NO PROBLEMS. the pds works great and as long as it is on i get no chops and paint color doesn't matter. The stock barrel is decent but a cp or dye barrel or a barrel kit would be nice. the trigger is nice but i like the feel of a magnetic trigger. The only complaint i have is that i have blowback. I guess i need a halo :P. this is as good as it gets for $520. I'm very impressed.
Conclusion: Well compared to any other gun that i have used around $520 this is awesome. It keeps up nicely w/ the upped trixes and the vikings and with a few upgrades it'll be up there w/ them. Stock i rate it at a machine gun, but fully upped these things rate right around weapons of mass destruction. ICD did very well on the bushy.

How bad is the blowback?

well, once you start shooting at any thing more than 10bps, you can notice it, but it is better than a stock cocker with an eblade on it.

get a vapor bolt or anybolt with o-rings it will eliminate blowback on markers with blowback
