Review: My friend bought one of these on sale for fifty bucks. When we all first saw it we thought it was quite a bargain. So we threw a battery in it and played with it a little bit.
It seemed to work fine.
Except when he took it out for the first game it just plain wouldn't shoot and he was the first one out. After fiddling with the thing a little bit back at camp and not figuring out what was wrong with it he gave up and grabbed his tippman.
Then about a year later he brought it over my house and asked me to look at it. I field striped it, lubed it up and, again, threw in a new battery. After firing off a couple test shots it seemed to be ok. But after a little pause to swap out the barrel the gun had the same problem. The solenoid wouldn't activate the sear for some reason. And it wasn't like it lost power or something. One minute it would shoot and the next it wouldn't.
After playing with it for a while and having fired not even two full hoppers out of it. The thing had eaten through a whole 9oz co2 tank.
What a chap piece of garbage.
Conclusion: Do not buy this product, get a spyder.
