Review: This marker is the finest i've ever owned (mostly personal preference). It's big, it's beasty looking, and you could literally through this thing in a sand pile and she'd still shoot flawlessly. I don't know why sheridan ever stopped making these or people ever stopped buying them because they're really a fine paintball gun.

When I first bought it from ebay i thought the stock bolt (seeming it has a flat face) would chop paintballs like no tomorrow. MAN was i wrong as long as you don't try and spray out paintballs it won't jam on you, i either use just 1 round or i tap the trigger a few times for 3 rounds which is as much as you need. I bought a Starfire bolt for it and was i dissapointed to find that they make em out of plastic now! But i tried it for a few months only to find i couldn't get the velocity much over 230 ( because there is no velocity adjuster in the starfire as there is in the stock bolt ). So alittle advice, don't buy aftermarket bolts unless you find a metal Venturi bolt because the stock bolt is more then sufficient.

One thing i didn't like about this design is there is no site rail built in. The typical VM-68 has no site rail which kinda stinks... but the newer VM-Magnums and the VM EXC's both have pretty nice site rails, also parts can be difficult to find if you don't know what to look for...
Conclusion: I have alot of friends who play speedball and i'm pretty much the odd one out with a big old school gun and they all have 300 to 1000 dollar guns with electronic grips (USELESS!!!). I would set my gun against any one of theres in an instant, this thing is the most accurate gun i've used in my 6 years and i wouldn't go back to any little speedball gun.

It's just to satisfying being in the bushes and shooting someone and hearing them say, "Where did that come from?!"
