Marker Setup: Misfit with bandit bolt, empire reloader, freak barrel and nitro.
On Off drop forward and bandit bolt. Polishing the internals, and the stock bolt with 1500 grit polishing paper, will smooth out any imperfections, or burs in the metal, which will keep your gun shooting great.
Strengths: Speed, Reliability, quality construction, looks, price, hey and the barrel isn't too bad either.
Weaknesses: Not much. little heavy, little loud, stock bolt jammed.
Review: I've had my syndicate misfit for about 3 months and for the most part it seems to live up to its good reputation. It shoots very fast, trigger is easy to walk, and is adjustable. It is a very accurate gun, and the stock barrel is actually decent. It also lives up to its claim of being low pressure out of the box. Mine shoots great at about 400psi without any tuning or upgrades. Hey and the anodizing job is great. Nothing looks cheap on this gun.

Problems : The only problem I've had with this gun is while I was shooting my first case of paintballs the bolt jammed in the body of the marker. I wasn't sure why this would happen, since I cleaned and oiled the gun prior to testing it, but I was able to get it out with a little help from a pair of pliers. After I got the bolt out I cleaned the inside of the marker, and wiped off the bolt, and to my suprise my cleaning cloth was covered in metal scrapings, and the bolt had a large scuff on the top.

Solution: Well to fix this little problem I decided to buy a bandit bolt which is made from a nylon material, so it won't scratch the gun, and I polished my internals with 1500 grit polishing paper. I also polished my stock bolt with the 1500 grit paper, which made everything slick as snot. I really recommend polishing the stock bolt and internals, so to remove any sharp burs that might scratch.

Future: I just want to say to the designers at syndicate that this is an awesome gun, and in the future the only thing that I can see added to it would be antichop eyes.
Conclusion: This is a great gun for the money, and as far as I can tell. No one else has run into my bolt problem, and the gun has shot flawlessly ever since. That's why I'm going to write it off as being a rare manufacturing flaw, and give this gun high marks.
10 out of 10
