Review: This was my first gun. I ordered it off ebay for 20 dollars when i knew nothing about paintball. After a week i got it in the mail. i showed it to my friends and they thought that it wouldnt work becouse it was plastic and looked like a toy. i took some shots and the balls poped in the barrel and it was just a mess. it worked pretty good uintil one ball broke then it all went downhill. I was accually kindoff embarassed to play with it whiel my other friends had tippmanns and spyders. After i would shoot a ball it would go in circles. After a couple of month i went to play a game and the first shot i took 20 balls came out and 10 muct have exploded. I took it to the store and they told me just to buy a knew gun. i finnaly sent it back to the company and bought a tippman

now im going to dicect the gun

THE Trigger

This gun has a double trigger but it is plastic and it has a really long pull
I would have to guess it takes 6 punds of pressure to pull it 2 out of 10

Weight
THis is one of the strengths of this gun. the weight of this gun is less then any other gun i have held. This is most likely due to the fact that it is plastic and has no fore grip 8 out of 10

barrel. This is absolutely the worst barrel i have seen on a dun. it is ten inches and is worse than the tippman 98 barrels 1 out of 10

paintjob
this paintjob is good for woods ball since it dosnt reflect liight but the paint dosnt in anyway makeit look more appealing 5 out of 10

feed
this gun uses a sid feed and it comes with an elbow. This elbow it seemed to me was much to big since my hopper was flying off and i was loosing my pantballs 1 out of 10

field stripping
this gun is really easy to field strip all you have to do is pull out the pins and wipe it down. i have found that i can field strip it in under a minute. 10 out of 10

accuracy.
the accuracy on this thing is accually pretty decent that is until one ball breaks and that is pretty frequent 6 out of 10

distance
the distance this has is nothing special mabey 60 ft - 75 ft at maximum usually alot less
4 out of 10

reliability
this gun isnt really that reliable the internal pieces wear down very quikly and the paint frequently breeaks. I dont think anyone can relie on this gun 1 out of 10

internal parts
These parts are really bad since the hammer is really hard to pull back the sear wore down on me allowing my gun to mess up in the middle of a game cousing my team to loose 1out of 10





Conclusion: In my opinion you shouldnt get this gun it is loud inacuarate and easily breakable. If you have one of these get rid of it. You may want to think it is a good gun but it isnt. i would give it a 7 if it didnt break but since it broke in such a short period of time i will give it a 4 becouse it is below average and if i averagege every subject i had up there it would equal a 3.9 out of ten
if you have any disagreements with what i had said dont hesitate to write a commenet
