Period of
Product Use:

More than 5 years
Products Used:
Trracer pump
Marker Setup: AT85 w/bottomline 12oz CO2 (soon to upgrade to HPA), PT Xtreme w/bottomline 4oz CO2
Bottomline, Gas-through stock, remote tank, ***HPA***
Strengths: Durability, Reliability, Coolness, Uniqueness, Accuracy
Weaknesses: Doesn't like CO2, hard to modify much (not that you need to)
Review: I'm used to good, accurate paintguns, but my first thought upon using my AT85 for the first time was that someone had swapped my paint for homing missiles and had neglected to inform me. It was THAT accurate! That entire day, I fired some 300 rounds of paint and (I counted) missed exactly 14 times. Wow.
Conclusion: Best marker I've ever used. Impossible to chop a ball unless you're a total idiot, shoots 6 inch shot groups at 100 feet, looks and sounds amazing, and is equally useful for backwoods sniping as it is for speedball. I once slipped off a log and landed on my gun; Not a scratch or ding, and once I squeegeed the mud out, it continued to shoot like a dream. The stock barrel is better than the $100 barrel I had on my old Trracer, and with the breech sizers, it accepts ANY paint flawlessly. The only time anything on it ever broke was the time I checked it as luggage when flying to California, and some clumsy baggage handler dropped the suitcase, apparently. The lockout screw for the safety/selector switch snapped off but the gun itself shot as well afterwards as it did when brand new (and still does, a year later). The only real drawback is the gun HATES CO2; But since new guns are no longer sold with CO2 use as an option, this isn't a big deal (and once I get around to mailing in my gun, it won't be a problem for me ever again).
10 out of 10
