Review: The 05 Speed is a great paintball marker for a player who wants speed, reliability, quality, and ease of use but doesn't want to pay a ton of money to get it. The new Speed is capable of going up to 31BPS. And believe me with the new magnetic trigger design you are able to get ever closer to that 31BPS limit. I hit 22BPS (verified over a chrono) without even trying. The de-bounce setting was at 1 or 2. So there is virtually no bounce in the trigger. The trigger pull is nice and smooth with a crisp trigger return. And zero side play.
The gun is fully adjustable in just about every way. The trigger can be adjusted in terms of length of travel, return, and activation point. The menus can be accessed inside the grip and are indicated by the LEDs on the back of the space frame. The menus are easy to understand. With these menus you can program the de-bounce, loader type (9volt, 12volt, force-fed ect.), and dwell settings.
One word of caution though. It is highly recommended that you use a Low Pressure (LP) tank with an output of 450psi with the 05 Speed. And I can see why this is recommended. The 05 Speed is an LP gun. If you use a High Pressure (HP) tank on it the reg must be modified so that you do not blow out any of the internals of the reg. Just be careful. I also recommend that you completely read over the owners manual BEFORE you even put air through the marker. This will save you a lot of heartache and time replacing parts.
The stock barrel is pretty decent. It is quiet and fairly accurate. But it is still a stock barrel and isn't micro honed to the higher standards that aftermarket barrels are.
This marker is very sturdy and is made of quality materials. One thing that WDP is known for is delivering high quality merchandise and the 05 Speed is no exception.
Conclusion: I highly recommend the 05 Speed to players that are looking for a marker that has everything you need and nothing you don't. This marker will help you take your game to the next level and will never limit your performance on the field. 10 out of 10.
