Review: The Bko Extreme is a very good marker for the money.

The Good:
Very inexpensive for the performance.
Fast, Capped at 15bps (programming) 18bps(Mechanical)
Trigger, 4 way adjustable, Pull, Microswitch activation, Spring tension and pivot point.
Derlin bolt stock
Already many upgrades availible

The Bad:
My stock HPR was garbage had a pice of metal floating around in it and it never worked properly.
Only a 2-way solenoid meaning a spring returns the bolt back causing a mechanical cap for BPS
Mine has only 1 O-ring detent which can lead to double fed balls - can be fixed with the macroline mod
Some people have had blowback issues with the stock bolt
Conclusion: I recommend this marker, it has a few minor issues and my HPR issues may have been a fluke. There are also many colors availible. I give it an 8 due to my HPR problems and my shipment delay.
Rating:
8 out of 10

"Only a 2-way solenoid meaning a spring returns the bolt back causing a mechanical cap for BPS" That isn't so bad, because the BKO can cycle 22bps which is more then anyone will ever need (yes, there have been BKO's tested to cycle up to 22bps).

"Mine has only 1 O-ring detent which can lead to double fed balls - can be fixed with the macroline mod" I don't see why you think you're the only one with one detent, all BKO's have one detent.

Also, I don't see why this is a such a big problem, why do you? It takes max five minutes to do the macroline modification and then you are set.

Well, I am done ranting :).
