Auto Cocker Trilogy Pro
16 inch Freak Barrel
CORE Universal Drop w/ guage
20oz Co2 (until I upgrade)
Egg 2 electric Hopper
Off Set site rail
Black Magic rear cocking rod (for looks only)
Gun comes out of box with almost no upgrades necessary, the stock barrel is insanely accurate, although it might just be because its an auto cocker and thats what they're known for. Of course a new barrel can only help though. Run comp-air not Co2, even though the gun runs pretty good on Co2, and the only upgrade that you need that I would recommend is a electric hopper.
ACCURACY, ACCURACY, ACCURACY, More so then Angels and other expensive markers.
Not WorrBlade compatible, no biggie though. And don't short-stroke.
OK, Ive only been playing paint ball for about a year now, Ive owned 2 other guns (mentioned above), which were pretty basic guns, ok for beginners, but I'm getting past that now. This gun is incredible. I just turned 18 and got a full time job making $1500 a month and I love with the parents and I have hardly any bills, so I decided to look for a good gun. I searched all through pbreview and when I saw an auto cocker for $260 I didn't believe it. Id heard great things about them, so I read the customer reviews and everyone gave it a 10, so I ordered it. Out of the box I was a little disappointed in the trigger pull of the cocker (its the same with all of them, w/out worrblade) but when I gassed her up and started testing, I couldn't believe the accuracy. If you can be this accurate then you don't need to shoot 13 BPS, I mean its great. I just got the freak barrel today and the accuracy now can be better. With all the upgrades mentioned, and the gun itself, I only spent around $500 or so, maybe $550, and all I really need now is to stop running Co2. My $550 gun (upgrades included) is just as good as a $1200 angel you could buy.
In your hands the gun feels great, its not too heavy, and with the drop forward it feels very balanced in your hands. Don't expect to get off more the 6 to 8 balls per second but expect them to be dead on target. Site rail is useless just like Spyders with the hopper blocking your view. The rail is more for decorative purposes, but with an offset rail it wont matter, and they're only like $15, or just aim down the side of the gun if you don't want the rail. Most accurate marker in the world and you cant use the site rail. But thats ok.
Now looks. The gun itself is nice looking, but the finish I'm not sure about. Its unique, a anodized chrome finish, with a slight purple tint, but when you buy your barrel or other accessories they wont match, but looks don't matter, its the gun quality that does. But I know some people take a lot of pride in the markers looks as well.
The gun is pretty quiet too, you wont have any problem there, and a barrel upgrade will only make it better. Pull pin for easy maintenance, VERY easy maintenance.
Ive had the gun about a month and no air leaks, almost no chopped balls (i short stroked when I first got it, but you'll get the hang of it in a day or 2) My friends like using it as well, a little bit of jealousy from them, owning guns like a 98 custom, E-99, Piranha, and such.
This gun is a great choice for long time players of and newbies. Its the most accurate gun on market (cocker's in general are) and the price is great. You could easily spend $1000 and get a gun thats not even as good as this, for a quarter of the price. If your looking to buy a high end marker, look no further.
