Paintball
Experience:

Similar
Products Used:
Tippman 98 Custom w/flatline barrel
Marker Setup: BT- 16 Tactical (stock.) Ricochet AK hopper
Recommended
Upgrades:
horizontal bottle adapter. Or a remote system
Strengths: Accurate, great velocity, easy breakdown, comfortable shooter, high intimidation factor.
Weaknesses: vertical ball feed makes the rear sight useless. Aftermarket offset sight needs to be used.
Review: Carefully break down and go over each part before using.The first time I used this marker out of the box I fired maybe 25 rounds and most of my shots were exploding back into my hopper! Upon further review I found that the hammer was installed backwards which was not creating any recoil. This caused thebolt to remain foreward thus causing the air pressure to send my paints into the hopper, not out the barrel. I corrected this and I have had 0 problems.
I have used it several times and it does'nt use much more CO2 than my Tippman 98.
I would recommend a remote system due to the weight of a larger bottle plus the marker. Although, the placement of the cylinder is centered well on the marker for small bottles. I adjusted the velocity to about 285fps and this seemed to be optimum for accuracy, distance and minimum ball breakage. I would recommend a side offset scope for you snipers out there as this marker works well for that purpose.

Conclusion: Overall I'am very pleased with this product. If you don't want to spend a small fortune on an Ariakon or Rap4 go with this one. It is user friendly and versatile. Overall a good value Mil-Sim.

Lol whatever dude i have a tippy just like this marker i used to play speed ball but thought it was boring now im all woods plus with my response i took out two people in the woods with an angel and a dm5 there just not cut out for woods ball. Ive seen them stop working in high humidity i think those expensive guns are over rated give him a break man. Plus in my opinion realistic guns are much more intimidating dont get me wrong dm 4s are a force to be reckoned with on a speed ball Field though.
