Review: I got this in March shipped direct from the manufacturer through a dealer. I didn't come with a barrel, regulator, or drop forward. Some people see this as a bad thing. I see it as a good thing. Nobody buys a nice marker like this and keeps the crappy barrel they throw on there. The next thing people usually upgrade is the stock regulator to one that can cycle as quick at the electro frame. I enjoyed picking out the parts I wanted to make my marker personal. Then you get exactly what you want in the colors you want. Some setups being sold come with the dragun reg and bottomline hookup - decent but how long are you going to use that setup? 75% gun looks and works great, but the rest lags behind. By leaving these things off, they kept the cost to an insanely low price.

I mentioned the quietness and accuracy seem good. My setup is extremely quiet and accurate. However, I never used it with a different setup so I can only base my opinion on mine. I let my brother use it for a game (usually uses a spyder DX w/ empire twister) and he was impressed at how he could pick people off so easily. His barrel was accurate to begin with. That's why having a barrel kit is nice - paint to barrel match makes a big difference.

He did have a couple chops though. I had a couple chops the first time I used it too because I left the dwell at zero. I forgot to tell him to set it higher too. Plus, I'm used to having an EYE like on my TES and not having to even think about short stroking.

Another cause of chopping, I believe, is the trigger. My TES trigger pull is short and quick. I recommend putting in $20 for a zentram. That and setting the dwell higher will reduce/eliminate chops. Once the EYE comes out though you can rake the heck out if without worry.

The gun can shoot up to 20bps - faster than 95% of the markers out there. The only competitors in this price range are the other OGI/Draguns. Otherwise, you're looking at $1000+ Angels.

So, you combine the speed and accuracy (and looks) of this marker and few can equal it. And those that can cost 3x the price.

I had no problems timing this gun and it was my first Autococker marker.

I'm not sure why, but somebody gave this gun a 7 because no EYE. Are you for real? How many guns come with an EYE stock - especially at this price? Do you see people giving them lower scores because of it? It didn't come with a Halo Hopper either. Why not knock it down a couple more points. At least it is EYE ready.
Conclusion: I would get this gun soon because Worr might be suing them for copying the orracle body. They will probably end up discontinuing this look. There is no other marker out there that gives as much bang for your buck as far as I'm concerned. It has surpassed my expectations. I really don't care if you get one or not. I'm just happy I have one. The less people that have one, the less competitiion I have.

Unfair as far as price is concerned, but I would guess that some people focus on the lack of an eye, because the E-Orracle has one. Despite the difference in cost, it is only natural that people will compare the Drallion to the E-Orracle, taking in to account that Dragun have gone to so much trouble to copy its appearance.

Yes and to the fact that there is holes/slots for the eye to go into and their is no eye, so it is kind of stupid that they are selling them separately. Also the noid lacks a lot of coverage that the e-blade has. I have seen far too many people at the fields walking off with a leakin noids because they got hit there or they bumped it on the bunker.
