Better instruction booklet
Review: Since mine is not a full production piece (got it at World Cup), I'm sure they will iron out some of the issues that I have with the marker. That is not to say that this is a bad gun, and you shouldn't get it.

The marker is great for being out of the box, but spend some time adjusting it before you get on the field. The marker is fast and when you get the trigger setup to your specs, you will not be able to out shoot it! It needs a Halo to feed this beast. Lightest marker I have ever owned! Barrel is good for now...

Gas efficiency is not great. I am going to try a better reg and tank (right now I've got the stock reg and a 68/3000 hpa tank). Probably something like a 68/4500 LPA tank with a Gladiator.

Milling could be better, with some modifications. Since mine is preproduction, hopefully full production will be better. Also since mine only has 1 switch, have the milling for the frame only be for one.

Please drop the on/off drop. Retension system doesn't work well, plus it's just Fugly! Also the pin could be chromed steel instead of brass.
Conclusion: setup to make this reach it's full potiential:
barrel kit
on/off ASA with mini drop forward
regulator
dye grip (or System X's new one)
clamping feedneck
trigger (www.Vaporworks.com)
Rating:
8 out of 10

Hey man good review, I've been thinking about buying an '05 FS and your review gave me some good ideas. I just wanted to tell you that it's www.vaporworks.net instead of www.vaporworks.com You might want to change that little deatail and after reading your review I'm seriously considering getting an FS. Thanks.
