Review: After playing with this marker a few times, I've got to say that it absolutely rocks. Out of the box it's great looking. It does take a little time to learn how to tune it. I tuned it up with the HPR at around 275 and LPR estimated at 95 shooting 280 fps. The trigger was adjusted down to about a mouse click. I played one day with it stock and was impressed overall. On that day I did chop one ball (out of about 1500) when wailing on the trigger (I did not get the PDS eyes because I have an OTB blind bolt on order). I had a leaking problem from the macroline fittings that first day, but a little teflon tape solved that.

Since then, I added an 04 Macdev Gladiator HPR, Macdev Sonic LPR, and 04 Zenitram Valve. I'm now tuned to about 185 on the HPR and (edited review to update LPR pressure now that my ram gauge is working) 45 on the LPR shooting 275 +-2. Shot about 1500 rounds more with no chops, and the marker is much quieter. Efficiency is better too. It was not too bad stock (guessing 900 on a 71/3000), now it easily getting over 1200 shots from a 3000 psi fill on my tank.
Conclusion: If you're considering buying a marker in the $300 (save a little more or look for a used on ebay) to $900 (get some upgrades along with it) range and beyond, take a good look at a bushmaster. This is a marker that competes with the high-end stuff and has tons of upgrades available. Honestly, if I won the lottery right now, I don't think I would have any interest in picking up another marker. I am completely thrilled with my Bushy.
