Review: the gun as a whole:

weight: 2.4-2.5 lbs.(my scale isnt that accurate)

dimensions: 19 1/2'' by 9 3/4'' so its a little long

looks: nice looks. way better than the xtra. though very bright

now to the field:

Well when i took this out of the box it looked real nice.comment to kingman- get a box for each gun. the box had cutouts for guns with a beavertail and diff feeds. they just mass produce them and slap all their guns into them. well anyway the gun.
I took it out of the box and gassed it up. i went and shot some down the road(we don't live in the city so don't worry). velocity is a little low but that is fixed anyway. what gun doesn't need tuning. i then took it to our field and played a couple games. it does everything the other reviews say it does. the accuracy surprized me though. my friends e-99, peoples xtras, victors, and even a guy with an electra wit all american all shot worse. i could easily hit a 8'' tire from 100 ft with one shot every time using draxxus dusk paint. i could also shoot cans off a barrel at 15 yrds. it was great beating all the more expensive guns in accuracy.
After a couple games we went into my house to eat lunch. it started raining. we all rushed to the field to save our equipment that we stupidly left there. all the stuff was ok because most things were under t shirts but the guy with the mongoose had his trigger frame short out. my gun was left plain out and was dirty and wet. i field stripped it, squeeged it and oiled it. perfect order no scraches on the bolt(i have expierenced scraches in later times after 6 days of play).it will not break.another good thing was that since its top cocking it takes 2 or so inches off the back. this also prevents dirt getting in more.
now im going to compare it to a gun in its class:the xtra

it is top cocking so it takes 2 inches off the back and prevents dirst better compared to the xtra.
it is lighter than the xtra.
it is 10 more than the xtra but worth it.
it has milling yay
it is shinyer than the xtra. boo
it is way more accurate than the xtra though the e-99, victor, and tl-x all have the same barrel, hmm?
it is better than the xtra period.
Conclusion: Well my first gun and it certainly pleased me. hope this review was helpful. umm it is a good beginner gun yeah yeah blah blah. the imagine is the only gun i can think that beats it for the cheap price range. i think it deserves a 6 cuz 5 is supposed to be normal but who goes by that when the stingray gets 10's from people. umm 10 is redicules because not angels are perfect. maybe an 8. aww screw it
Rating:
9 out of 10

Interesting. If you only had:

(1)VERY (2)FLASHY (3)Can (4)be (5)seen (6)easily

(7)Elbow (8)makes (9)it (10)stick (11)up (12)half (13)a (14)foot.

It would be within 15 words.
