Point Zero-Model 83. Bob Long EX Chamber & Foward Drop, Tippman A-5 Stock Barrel.
Barrel, EX Chamber, Spring kit (i think the ZAP ZXS 400 kit works, same gun)
Cheap, Durable, Light, Balanced
Low BPS, Low FPS, Okay Accuracy, Freezes if wet/rainy, Sputters
Ive not done anything to maintain it, and I doubt my friend did either when he had it. Still hangin in there, and for what it cost me (15$) its a friggin great gun. Ive tagged out my friend who was using the AKA Viking in the face. I guess its not the fastest,strongest, or most accurate, but if you use it right, it wont really let you down. Its not a paint spraying machine though. Id say I got like 3-4 BPS max without chop. Not bad for manual blowback. It does sputter as other reviews have mentioned, and its FPS is not at all predictable. It also does leak if you dont cock it before you put the CO2 in, and I guess it kinda wastes alot. That could just be from removing the tank from the foward drop/ex chamber though.
For a beginning player like me, who is rather limited on funds, it performs great. It shoots paint, puts it basically where you point it, and fires about as fast as you can pull. If your starting out, or short on cash, its a good gun. If you dont fit that category, Id reccomend another gun (Icon, or other Spyder clone). Im keepin the Pointy till it craps out, and I may just get the Icon anyway.

:| When you are just starting out, getting a decent gun is a great deal. My friend gave me the gun and a bob Long Foward Drop and Ex chamber for 20$. I bought and A-5 barrel and threaded it on. I got the 20oz tank for free. And a grav hopper for 5$. So for about 35$, I have a fully functional gun. Hey, if i can tag out a Viking I think the guns a good deal :|
Sorry, I get loads of flak about the gun, especially from my pro shop. Its attacked me too, I nailed myself in the neck and the chest a few times with the bolt. :) Its even frozen solid, so much so that the plastic outside had ice. Oh well, its done me well so far
