Review: The first marker I've ever owned. I got this baby used with standard configuration - tank under the barrel sorta. It came with a 14" thick bull barrel which makes it look really cool. I sent this gun to the airsmith to make some modifications. They drilled port holes on the barrel and they drilled internal expansion chamber. With this setup I'm getting fair efficiency with my 9 oz tank. Oh it also comes with a wire stock. kinda like the trigger guard but it extended all the way and curved up like an assault stock. Waay cool. Hahah i sound like a noob, but this is the thing that get me started into paintball. I learned to take this thing apart, learn how the trigger works (complicated). I actually drilled the face of the bolt myself so it looked like a starfire bolt.
I also made my own feed neck to change the curve metal that it had. I bought a brass pipe and cut it about 1 1/2" and replace the orioginal feed neck with this so it would accept standard elbow and hopper.
If i have the money, I'd get this again and turn it into a scenario gun.
Conclusion: Well, for those of u who couldn't find parts, u're not doing ur homework buddy. Check on ebay; they got field strip screws, barrels, bolts, stocks, etc. And i used to know an online store that has all the internal parts of the vm 68. Overall, this is an old marker, with early design. It's a pioneer and well known for its durability. I'd give this an 8 because there's a whole bunch of better markers out there that I've yet to try.
