Products Used:
This was my first gun and it still is my only gun...
Marker Setup: I use the Dark Raider with an Evlution II hopper, All American Barrel, ACI x Chamber, and 20oz CO2.
When I first got the gun, the stock barrel was good and the rate of fire was great but it chopped balls pretty bad. Once I got the electronic hopper to keep up with the ROF and the ported barrel, the gun was GREAT! (Needs electronic hopper and better barrel with porting)
Strengths: Very Durable Gun
Great ROF
Good Stock Barrel
Accepts Most Spyder Parts
Good CO2 Conservation
Weaknesses: Heavy
Hose Placement
Hard To Find Parts (Company Out Of Business)
Velocity Adjuster Comes Loose
Review: This gun starts out good for a beginner and as you upgrade it, it becomes a really great gun. I have been in battles with Autocockers, Spyders, Tippmanns, and some of the more expensive guns and it compared really well with them all (upgraded of course). It is a gun that many people haven't heard of and it isn't commonly used, but that is no reason not to buy it if it is good.
At first, my brother and I were skeptical about it because we didn't know what to expect. When I started shooting with it and seeing how fast it could shoot, we were amazed with both its performance and its potential. This gun is great with the recommended upgrades and will be a great gun up until you buy a really expensive one.
About the weaknesses of the gun... the hose is annoying but to be honest I hold the CO2 tank instead of the forward grip, so I never noticed a problem. I fixed it anyway when I got the x chamber. Nu-Line is out of business but the gun is good anyway. Tippmanns are really reliable guns but if you like the Spyder style than this is the way to go.
Conclusion: Buy the gun as it is a really great gun for both the price and the performance. Little things go wrong here and there with it but these are mostly stock parts that should be customized anyway. Good speed gun with great accuracy but will chop balls without an electronic hopper of some sort. The upgrading I did payed off and now I have a great gun! I gave it a 9 because there are better guns out there but I like this one.
