Review: i was one of the most skeptical people when reading ont his marker. i figured it would be crap out of box and at most be used as a backup....at worst for 300 bucks id shoot marbles and rocks out of it. let me say one thing: this thing delivers.

i brought it to outlaw paintball, in so-cal, to try it out with various teams and friends. everyone loved it, novice to pro. even one of my more skeptical friends, my old team captain of dpb factory west admitted to despising the fact taht he liked it. He was actually pissed off while fireing it because he wanted it to be crap.

there was probably half a case shot through it with out of box parts (bottom line asa, feedneck, barrel) and still performed up there with my other guns. the barrel inside of the barrel is still clean as though it never left the box, shiney and sticky. thats half a case of paintballs in live games with no breaks or chops... (played as a back position gun while used yesterday). constanty fires ropes.


cons:
the worst part of the gun is the fact that you have to disassemble it to do something as simple as take out the bolt.
Worst trigger EVER. i mean, it was crappy out of box... and even when tinkered with by myself and professionals, still crap. they really need to come out with an aftrermarket trigger
the 17bps cap ,which doesnt seem worth mentioning, is sluggish. 17 bps really is slow and i feel as if i cant rip on the gun cause of missed trigger pulls.
Conclusion: Tournament grade gun. i will be playing with it as an equal to my ironmen timmy once some aftermarket parts come (board, trigger, ect).

Most people are saying its a rec ball gun, its not. heres why:
1) you will go through far too much paint now that your gun fires straight and doesnt chop
2) i doubt youll be able to dig holes with it as you would a tippman
3) it takes full dissassembly to maintain. rec ballers dont know what to do

This is seriously a tournament grade gun... its the ford escort of paintball.

I'm giving it a 9 because of the low bps cap and the fact that it needs to be dissassembled to maintain.
Rating:
9 out of 10

I think 17 bps is fast enough, you should try taking the magnet out, it really increases ROF and will pull 17 bps easy.

dude rec-ballers dont know what to do, i mean come on man, i thikn its a little unbased to act like rec-ballers are less of a breed then tourney players. I have played for around3 years now, never once on a field, always with friends and stuff. i am the true rec-baller, not a tourney guy. I run a 2000 model cocker, and not a thing on it is near stock, and none of it came from teh proshop either. Every spring on it was cut by me for my REC Marker. Anyone can play paintball well, rec or speed style, thanks for the otherwise helpful review
