Recommended
Upgrades:
None, this marker comes fully upgraded out of the box, although the new 44 magnum ram looks tempting but the current ram is very smooth. Some say the .689 barrel but I found it shooting far better than the freack, I was shooting PMI Evil paint.
Strengths: Accurate
Light 2.0lbs
Consistent
Looks
Quiet
Reliable
Weaknesses: They are hard to come by
Review: I will try & cover every aspect of this marker and provide comparison to others:

Accuracy: The marker is unbelievably accurate, I was shooting Power ball and was able to hit a pole four times in a row, and it was more than 70 yards away. The fact that there is little recoil on this marker adds to the accuracy, whereas my Black Magic rocks like a boat compared to this marker. My shot grouping at 50 yards is very tight, while playing I find it very easy to hit players who are lightly exposed. FYI the range is awesome!!!!

Weight & Looks: This marker is the lightest I have come by 2.0lbs with barrel & reg, every time a friend picks it up for the first time the first comment is 'this thing is light" or "unreal". The milling is amazing, no tool marks or poor milling, simply smooth. The anno job is top rate and evenly done.

Consistency: As mentioned before the shoot grouping is tight because of the MD Gladiator reg (one of the best in the industry), I get tested to play on the field and never have to worry about chrono violations. The Mac Dev LPR is small, efficient & easy to adjust. I chronoed at the field 270,270,271,270 270 AWESOME NUMBERS!!!

Reliability: Since I purchased the marker I have never had to time it, I dry fire it like a fanatic & unload on the field. When MD states that their anti-vibration technology will do away with timing they mean it, my marker has never gone out of time or skipped a beat.

Efficiency: The delrin bolt along with two o-rings helps keep any air from escaping, along the RED valve you easily get 1300 shots from a 68/4500 marker, there is room for improvement is you mess with the springs but I have not attempted to do so.

Snap Shooting: The trigger is very light & buttery smooth, I have only added a chrome flame trigger for looks, snap shooting it easy, the weight makes it very easy to maintain the marker steady, makes it a cinch to hit your target.





Conclusion: To summarize it this marker addresses many of the problems other cockers have, weight, timing, low-pressure operation, reliability and ease of use, which everyone fears from a cocker. I have used and tried many other markers as listed above and this one blows them away. The Evo-X is close in many areas but the MD blows it away in weight, consistency and in my opinion looks, plus it cost 400.00 dollars less for the 2K3 models, which will probably be the deciding factor if you are thinking about both markers (considering you still have to buy a reg for the Evo X). All of this for a marker out of the box & fully upgraded, you will not be disappointed at all. While some people will give anything a ten, this marker gets a 10 of 10 for a mechanical marker and actually desrves it!!!!
