Paintball
Experience:
4 years
Similar
Products Used:
Spyder imagine, spyder e-99, tippy rt
Marker Setup: decked Mongoose II, too much stuff to list here (transfred from my imagine
Recommended
Upgrades:
fast hopper, barrel, inline reg (if you can afford it)
Strengths: Beautiful milling and ano, ROF, settings, trigger frame, tolorence, BL reg, price
Weaknesses: Chopps without good paint or fast hopper, eats batteries
Review: I recentley got this gun off the internet for $200 I was very impressed with the value of this gun. First of all, milling and ano is sexy, i love it.

Trigger frame:
Pros:
The trigger frame has a LCD display (like a watch) and has two buttons for changing modes.
the modes are:

Adjustible cap semi-auto: this mode (semi auto) allows you to adjust thee maximum balls per second to keep up with your hoppers capabilities. I was very happy about this

Multi: This allows you to adjust a number of balls to fire with each trigger pull

Turbo: This allows you to increse the balls per second of the multi mode

Full auto: This allows continus firing when you hold down the trigger. BPS is adjustible

The frame also has a ball counter, and game timer
Cons:
Eats up batteries
Sometimes hard to see LCD in direct sunlight

Rating on trigger frame: 10

Bottomline reg:
The BL reg is not top quality, but for being a stock $200 gun, it is gold.
Rating on BL reg: 9.5 because it is not perfect

Foregrip:
The gun has a simple gas through foregrip. They call it a volumizer, but it is a gas through fore grip. I could see how it would act as a 1 stage expansion chamber
Rating on fore grip: 6 because they could have done more

Vaulve assembley:
The vaulve is solid and good, nothing else to say other than the LPC (low pressure chamber) has sexy milling
Rating on Vaulve assembley: 10

Hammer and main spring assembily:
The hammer and main spring are top notch. I was very impressed with the tolorence of the hammer.
Rating on hammer and main spring: 10

Bolt:
The gun comes stock with a deleron bolt. I was very happy about this. It lowres the needed pressure, reduces oil frequency, and gives the gun a better feel. I was not too happy about the top cocking handle. it is a sharp triangle, and it is small making it hard to cock.
Rating on bolt: 8.8 because of cocking handle is bad

Feed:
The feed is very unique. it will lock to keep your hopper from falling out (a problem I have had with my jt2.0) for that I gove extra points
Rating on feed: 11because i give extra credit for going above and beyond

Detent:
I normally dont include the detent, but this is a special case. The detent is a new kind that I have not seen before but I love it
Rating on detent: 10

Barrel:
The stock barrel has nice milling and a large bore. But as with all stock barrles, it is not very well made
Rating on barrel: 7

Frame:
The frame is milled and anoed very sexy. The frame has very good tolorence and can be entirley opned with one allen wrench.
Rating on frame: 10

Overall:
Overall I think this is an exceptional gun for the price. YOU CANT BEAT THE LOOKS The gun operates great on co2 (that all i can afford) Accuracy is good. has a good overall feel and balance. I like it
Conclusion: You should trust my opinion because I have more experiance with stacked blowback markers of all kinds than many airsmiths. If I say a gun is sound, it is is good gun. I would reccomend this gun to beginner and poor experianced players (like me). I give this gun a 10
Rating:
10 out of 10

i think that most people can probably figure out what the different modes do

Umm... the volumizer is the little tube under the barrel. The gas-thru is just a gas-thru.
Also, there is no bottom line reg. Reg is short for regulator. It's just an ASA, dude. Just an ASA. There's no such thing as a low pressure chamber. The gun fires at 800psi. That's not LP.

Ok, I'm done.

Not a reason to red flag his review. You may be lucky but most markers will have breaks with bad paint. That and bad paint can stick together and cause slow loading leading to chops.

And for the reviewer, locking feednecks aren't unique though I give credit for a blowback having one stock.
