Review: First off this marker is the best I have ever owned. Super durable, very unique and an excellent performer. I've only had it for a month and I've fallen in love with it, there is nothing else like it.

Accuracy: I can get 5-6in groupings at 110ft with Zap Tork, I can only imagine how good it would be with Marbs. The Zap is a bit too small for the barrel, it falls through. But... the unisizer does its job and accuracy isn't greatly affected. I've tested the ID with marbs and the paint to barrel match is perfect.

Durability: This thing seems indestructible. It's made of military grade polymer (the same stuff Glocks are made of), its insanely strong. The only weak link is the magazine itself, it seems rather fragile. A direct hit from a paintball would likely break it. Also there are many things to break through user error. Guide plates are easy to fry if you don't follow the right airing procedures and the regulator can be finicky. Not to mention the small parts that are easy to lose. Although, 99% of the problems will be user error, so watch the video and study the users manual religiously.

Features: Auto-cocking, full auto, m-16 like select fire, built in freak system, clip fed. What's not to like?

Uniqueness: Pretty much the only clip-fed .68 marker. The internals are also completely unique, even though its a cocker, it doesn't have the standard pump like internals. There's no 3 way, no cocking rod, no macroline, no back block, no timing required. Also this gun is near impossible to chop. The magazines are synchronized with the marker to load only when fired...cool. The only way to chop is if the mag is not indexed (synchronized), I accidentally forgot to check to see if it was indexed, and ended up pinching a pb between the bolt and receiver. I tried to clean it, to no avail. Because of it's design it ended up shooting paint into the rear of the gun, getting the internals covered in green paint. Which also got paint in the bolt, so it is pretty much impossible to clean in the field. Also, parts are EXPENSIVE!!!!!
Conclusion: This is an incredible marker, and was worth every penny. I bought mine used, and got a great deal, but it is definitely worth the list price. Even though it does have some problems. the advantages far out weight the bad. I would love to give this a 10, but because of the complexity and the easiness to break I will have to give it a 9. Buy one, you won't regret it!
