Review: I saw this gun in a review of APC. and i liked what i saw. I bought the gun from a dealer in CA. and had it shipped down to Florida where I play. There were no people in FLA that sold the gun. I even looked at this exact sight and looked at all of the reviews. and decided to purchase one. I couldn't wait to get my gun. i opened the package and tried to turn the gun on. NOTHING. i took it to all of my autococker buddies. they like the milling but could not figure out how to turn the gun on. I called the company for 1 week, could not get anyone to return my calls. finally i got in touvh with leon. he told me i would have to send it back to him so he can see what I messed up on the gun. I politely told him that i have not been able to even turn on the marker so i couldn't screw anything up. I took it to my close friend that owns a paintball shop and me and him have built autocockers from the ground up together. we took the trigger off to look at the board. and found out that they have dremmeled the inside of the grip and got metal shavings all over the board. I showed leon pictures and he could not believe it. So i shipped the gun. noted as Trip # . Please keep in mind 1. there is a week to ship it there, 2-3 weeks for him to get to it and 1 week to ship it back. 2. They would not reimburse me for the shipping was was $13-14 each time.. here we go

(trip #1)so i sent the gun back it returned with a working trigger but the rest of the gun didn't work. it didn't cycle any air. I contacted leon and he said to ship the gun back again

(trip #2) i told him i was looking at the rocking trigger so maybe he could put that on. to eliminate all of the computer programing that comes with an ANS. Marker came back with the rocking trigger but still did not cycle air. The bolt moved but air didn't come out to shoot the ball. I put a Low pressure center flag reg on it to see if it was the reg. I also personally didn't care for the rocking trigger, it looked and felt cheap. contacted leon and he said to ship the gun back again and that i didn't like the rocking trigger i took the center flag reg off and put the timmy reg back on. and shipped the gun back

(trip #3) got the gun back ANS grip with no charger, Serial cable, CD gun still didn't work, it would cycle air now but for any of you that are familiar with timing an autococker you know that when you get it right you can actually suck the ball into the chamber. well it was popping the balls OUT of the gun. i would put my empire reloader-B on and shoot one ball at a time and it would work but if i tried to double shoot it would break and go all up in my hopper. so i took it off (after taking it apart 4 times) and that is when i found it was popping balls out. contacted leon and he said to ship the gun back again

(Trip#4)still didn't work same problem. contacted leon and he said to ship the gun back again

(Trip#5) Got the gun back, same problem. I asked leon if he could put the ANS eyes on that came with the marker? he said he would not do it cause he didn't want the liability. I don't know what that was all about. So i did it myself. (now keep in mind I have drilled many markers before so i am not a novice at it.) Result: I did not break any more paint at slow speed but getting up in the 12-13 BPS it chopped BAD!!! like every other ball.

(Trip#6)still didn't work same problem. contacted leon and he said to ship the gun back again. he said ship it back the way I had it. so i put my center flag on it, drop, stainless hose and ASA.

(Trip#6) Now listen to this I got the gun back, NO ANS, NO CENTER FLAG, NO DROP, NO ASA. The covers for the eyes were gone and thrown in the box along with the screws. On the marker, there was a single trigger with no battery, and a timmy reg. I contacted him FURIOUS. I wanted to know where my stuff was. he said they don't put ANS on the gun anymore. the center flag he LOST along with the drop and the ASA. So i tired the gun and what do you know the micro switch for the trigger broke after about 50 shots!!!! Sigh

(Trip #7) received a package 2 weeks later from PGI with my ANS, and center flag reg, so i put those back on and still does not work.

I got another little package that had a switch and a macro line and a drop and ASA that was not mine. I have tired to contact them still but no answer. They will not refund my money they are just making me spend more of my $ and costing me TONS of down time in order to make it right WHICH STILL HAS NOT HAPPENED
Conclusion: I dont think i even need to write a long post in this section, :-(
this marker has caused me more trouble then any of the markers that i have teched on since i started playing. and i have worked on most all of the main gun brands. (except angels)

how do you figure it is the stores fault all they did was sell me the gun. which came brand new from the factory in the original factory box. i bought the gun in CA and i am in FLA. hard to just bring it back

Dispute:
your supposed to be rateing the gun not the store, you should have been able to fix ANY of those things yourself (i thought you knew about autocockers???)
