PhantomSix4 Thursday, November 4th, 2004
Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month
Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Similar
Products Used:
PGP. PGP is sturdier and more accurate. It is also like $60 more expensive.
Marker Setup: MicroMag with Smart Parts Tear Drop barrel and VL Revolution hopper.
Recommended
Upgrades:
If you wish to use the Beetle as a sidearm like me then convert it to a stock class marker. I cut off the feed neck and used epoxy putty to attach a cut down 90 degree pvc fitting. The fitting is just big enough to take a 10 round tube of paint. For less than $5 this is a good upgrade.
Strengths: Cheap
Easy to clean and maintain
Good on CO2
Light
Weaknesses: Not very accurate and mid to long range.
Likes to double feed
Review: For its price it is not a bad little gun. It is quite effective at short range as long as the 12 gram is not near its end. It is also very simple to clean and maintain. The breech has no detent therefore it occasionally likes to load more than one ball at a time. This sometimes causes breaks. Or sometimes both balls will fly straight and break on target. Great as a backup or a sidearm.
Conclusion: For the price I would say this is a great gun. I wouldn't recommend it as a primary marker unless most of the people you are playing with are similarly equiped. If you want a cheap side arm or back-up marker then this might work for you.
Rating:
9 out of 10
