Recommended
Upgrades:
Barrel is the main part (marker has a decent stock barrel) like any other marker out there.

Bottle Adapter or ASA....Marker doesn't come with one, but what marker over 300 does?

Not really a necesity right off the bat but a new HPR reg would be nice.
Strengths: Accurate.
Lightweight (2.3 lbs)
Easy feild strip.
Stock delron bolt.
Feedneck is good looking.
Weaknesses: Barrel,its decent compared to most stock barrels out there...
Review: This is an al around great marker.
It comes with a guage located just above where ur screw the High Pressure Regulator (aka HPR). This gives the gun a plus becuase it will prevent you from over pressureizing and blowing the solenoid inside which practically runs the marker.

I would suggest at least a reloader hopper from empire to a Halo B from halo. Its the fastest marker out there that isn't blowback or any cheap sear tripper that shoots 18 BPS for just a price of 320 or less.

It is EASY feild strip all you have to do is pull the pin on top of the marker and presto the bolt slides out. You can see from one end to another (Back of marker to end of barrel) inside this marker stick a swab squeegie in and out and its all clean. This = less time taking your marker apart and having to clean the oily substance of paint out of your marker...

If you are getting a new barrel i suggest getting a .689 or .693 if you cant get the .693 bore barrel they work best in open bolt markers in my opinion.

The battery is located snug inside the grip so you need a allen wrench around(comes with marker) so you can take the grip off.

The feedneck is a plus to becuase its great looking and doesn't look stock, it looks like you bought it seperate from the gun.
Conclusion: If you have some spare cash i suggest getting a barrel the stock barrel is descent. Also IF you have cash, its not real much of a necesity but get a new HPR more consistancy in shots will show. I would give this gun a 10 but IMO 10's are overated. But if i were to give it a 10 it would need to have come with a great barrel( boomstick quality).So ill give it a 9 since its a great gun if your upgradeing from a Autococker, spyder, tippmann or any marker that you feel you need to achieve 18 BPS. IF you need help with the marker just goto www.PBnation.com and go into the Indian Creek Designs Forum or you can pm me

-I hope this helped

but the matrix is also 750+ dollars. if your gonna rant about your gun do it with a gun at the trixes level.

Matrix can shoot only 3 BPS faster, they're bulkier, could soop up a BKO for only 600. Unless your talking about the DM4.

why would you put a hpr reg on.that makes no sense, i high pressure reg on a low pressure gun. the bko is supposed to shoot at 200-300 psi,

running on high pressure wont affect performance and is a waste of you air
