Review: When I first saw this gun in my friends hands, I couldnt help but notice the difference between the front end, and the back of this gun. The barrel was a one piece 12" stock barrel, but it was really good looking. Sleek, dangerous, ported aluminum, I liked it. then, picking up the gun for myself, I saw the marker from the back. The rubber hose felt flimsy in my hand, the gripframe wobbled slightly, and there was an area of plain sheet metal right above the grip that looked incomplete somehow. (Thats where the shottyness comes in.)
I dont know what it was with the marker, but throughout the day there were several unrelated problems with almost every part of his marker.
the ball detent fell out
he broke 3 o rings
the rubber hose leaked
the thing chopped balls... constantly.
his velocity wouldnt go above 230
After a seemingly endless morning of testing and repairing, we finally got everything fixed. I dont know if he got a lemon, or what, but it was an endless list of problems. once we tinkered with everything and got it under control, it was a decent marker.
Conclusion: If you want a low maintinence mechanical marker, I wouldnt recomend it. but if you like to tinker and are strapped for cash, sure, go get it.
