Review: I was very impressed with this marker. after i got it working and setup it performed flawlessly all day. light and maneuvarable allows for a variety of shooting positions without excessive arm fatigue.

the gun didn't work at first. it wouldnt shoot a steady stream no matter where i set the regs. 260fps, 140fps, 182fps, 290fps, 110fps, etc... i took the bolt assembly out and was really surprised how difficult it was to manually cycle the bolt. i would push and pull on it and it was not a smooth acton at all. i figured this had to be my problem. i finally got the valve pin out without scratching it and then i had a 20 minute battle with that %$#@!()&#@-ing o-ring. it will be easier next time. i replaced it and lubed it and the delrin piece on the valve VERY good. put the assembly back together and immediately felt a difference. although not super smooth like my Evolve kit, it was still a definite improvement. put gun back together and adjusted the regs and everything worked great. i set regs and played with the gun today and found that if i keep the velocity below 290fps there is a noticeable drop in the amount of kick produced. i chopped one ball(eyes off--dont ask) out of about 1600. HPR was set between 340-360psi- FPS was 275-295. no double feeds with the HALO and yes it IS just as accurate as any gun with good paint/barrel match. i paid $750 and i do believe i got my moneys worth
Conclusion: i love the fact that it is a totally new design on this marker. new innovation is what makes the world go 'round:) i would definitely recommend this marker to relatively experienced paintballers(tourny players and people who have a working knowledge of how airguns work). not to say others wouldnt enjoy it just as much, but it is regulator sensitive and if you are not aware of how LPR and HPR work, then it might cause some problems. for the price i paid, i couldn't have bought a better gun.
