Speed, weight, low profile, what else could u ask for?
Going through modes and settings is a lil tricky at first overall nothing really bad!
i got it with a 68/3000 crossfire tank, and a evo II, i havent done any testing because i dont have any air yet, and my evo II comes in on monday because it was out of stock and they shipped it a day after my other items shipped.. doesnt seem to be any out of the box problems, but i do suggest not using the battery which comes with the marker, and just picking up like a energizer or what ever, because mine died just clicking the solinoid. it may seem like u have to push hard on the button, but u really dont, and i caused my button to stick a lil before i figured this out, just put a lil bit of pressure and the red light will turn on, let go of the button, and ur in vision mode! its super light, and comfy. it feels very sturdy and seems to be a good marker. changing modes is a lil weird at first because u use the gray button inside the grip frame and the power button, but once u get used to it its very simple, and thers no way of cheating because teh buttons are on the inside of the frame, so no switching modes durring a game unless u have a screw driver.
i open le box, and WOW! i am amazed! looks hot and its extremely HEAVY at 2.2 pounds.. (sarcasm for you loserz) barrel is nice, powder coated with a mirror finnish. i dont reccomend using the battery that comes with it, mine failed after i had the gun on for 5 minutes, new battery, and its been running great ever since!
looks very good, nice mirror finnish on the inside, and the powder coating on the barrel is great, but there seems to be a lil excess on mine at the end of the barrel, but its in no spot to which it would harm performance...
The trigger is perfect for me straight out of the box. alot of people in the owners group have taken the trigger out saying that they can get a higher bps rate, but i dont think so... its not like incredibly snappy, and not incredably loose, but a good all around trigger. i dont know how people have been breaking them, because it feels solid and nice, and the only way of breaking it is by bending it the wrong way, which is pretty idiotic...
Not to high, yet not to low, seems pretty good for my personal preference, but time will tell once i get my EVO II in...
reccomended upgrades out of the box:
the only one i would reccomend is a new bottom line setup. many people say that the stock macroline is not very flowing, but id beg to differ, it looks ok, and doesnt seem restricting. along with this, the stock "duck-bill" type ASA is not like others, where its WAY out the back, its in a general good spot, but im thinking of getting a unimount or something because i dont like the way my tank is pushed back about 1 1/2 inches.. then again, the setup is perfect for me, because when i play, i tend to rest my tank on the outside of my arm on my elbow, which to me seems to give me a nice small tucked profile out the side, and its easy for me to switch between sides and still be able to walk the trigger with my left hand... another upgrade is obviously the barrel, because all stock barrels arent as good as after market ones, and i plan on getting like a freak kit for my ion another upgrade depending on your preference would be maybe a feed neck, its not tall like an impulse, yet now a low-rise like the q-loader. its kind of in teh middle, and i dont think i will be getting a new one, because with my shake-and-bake hopper its at a good height ,and its a tight fight with the o rings in the feed neck, so no moving around of the hopper!
the past 2 days all ive been doing is carrying it around and walking the trigger, going in and out of vision mode, changing the rate of fire, going though the different modes such as rebound, full auto, 3 round burst, and of course, semi.. easy to walk, and overall seems like a great marker. i'll up date once i get some air and play with it at missions this comming weekend, and plan on doing some upgrading and modding to it, and i will def. be updating this, so stay posted as the cash rolls in!
Def. a 10/10! a great marker at an even better price! I'm no newb, and i konw a good marker when i see one!

Dispute: the stock trigger sucks balls it wiggles from side to side inside the frame mine broke while i was walking it during a tourny game at my local park and u cant get the bps up high enough with the stock trigger a trugger upfrade is a must almost as soon as u get the gun
