Review: If you plan on scaring birds away, then this is the gun.

If you plan on scaring people to duck behind their bunker because you came 1 inch from their face after unloading 90 rounds at you from their Angel or Timmy during a hardcore game of speedball, then this is the gun.

If you want everyone and their mom from the opposite team to gang up on you and personally try to hunt you down for bragging rights... then this is the gun.

If you want a beautiful marker that people will compliment and gawk at on the field asking questions about the marker, then this is the gun.

This gun is so damn accurate, that I recommend a red-eye sight & shoulder stock. 1cm of a tilt, and that's where the ball will hit.

If you want to spend alot of money, then this is DEFINITELY not the gun.

Well, after a 12gram and 22 rounds, I was able to line up my site at 100 feet. I was able to hit the targert on spot. If not, within inches.

You need to be careful of the 2 screws that hold the pump to cock.

If you want a 4oz stubby canister w/on/off valve, then you need to look really HARD.
Hard to find those 4oz stubbys.

Also, I was kind of disappointed to see that for this price, at least Carter could tap in some industry standard "stock" holes for a bottomline or ASA or stock adaptor. Had to pay a guy $20 to tap it for me.
Conclusion: Accuracy is just as accurate as SVC Phantom. For me and the type of paint I used, the Buzzard seemed more accurate. Paint is extremely important for the marker.

Cleaning on this gun sucks. Inconvenient to take off since you need different alan
wrenches, screwdrivers,

I am much faster at cleaning/re-assembling a Phantom. Phantoms are really convenient like that.

Unless you have muscles, this gun will feel heavy to a stock player. I carry a 68/3000 aluminum on my semi, so to me... this gun is still pretty damn light. But after playing a
week with the Phantom, I have grown to like nearly feather weight guns.

You need to get a stock.
You need to get a sight.

Overall... dope. Gets an 8 for high pricing & making it not so easy to disasemble the
marker compared to Phantom... and cleaning is annoying. Much rather clean a Phantom. However.. I DO like the feel of this gun better than a Phantom. Phantom's feel flimsy, but they are not. I like guns that field solid built.

Actually... I will give it a 9 since each gun is hand made 1by1 .(or so their advertising says) Also, it gets a 9 for looking great. and shooting straight and getting me MAD props and compliments every single time I take it out. I have never gotten so many compliments before about people wanting to check out the gun and saying how awesome it looks. I've had people tell me... Normally I am not a fan of silver/chrome colored markers... but that thing is sweet.

Recommended paints ..689-690 ball size. Dont sell the barrel for a cocker threaded
one. The stock Buzzard-Boomstick is fine.
