Easy to maintain
Heavy-Same as gen-e matrix
2 solenoids= bad on batteries
I have not owned this gun for long but I am very impressed.
I bought a used excalibur and couldn't be happier. I have used this marker full time and lent it out for heavy use. It has shot approximately 8000 balls without a break.
Although the gun is heavy it is very well balanced and not at all difficult to hold and use.
Although the maximum rate of fire is less than other guns I have never shot faster. All those who have used it agree it is very easy to maintain a high rate of fire with this gun.
It may be expensive but it's quality is amazing. The bolt has o-rings but doesn't really need them as the bolt fits the breach perfectly.
I bought this gun without having tried an excalibur and I am glad I took the risk. I had used other aka guns and been impressed but I believe this is my favorite marker of all markers. I am a habitual trader/seller but this gun makes me want to stop trading.
2010 update: Sold all my excals gun, using Vikings and CCM pumps these days. Still like Excals a lot. Everything I said before holds true.
Aka had a great product in the excalibur. It is expensive but compared to other guns in the price range it is far superior. I have taken the excalibur over, aliases, dm5's, karnivor's, freestyles, mq'ed orracles, and all others.
I have never been more impressed with a gun and as long as you are strong enough to handle a gun I recommend the excalibur.
The quality of this gun is outstanding and I wish they were still in production today. I feel like this gun will be working years from now just as well as it does today.
It does not feel like a toy, it feels like a weapon. Solid. It comes with a lifetime warranty for a good reason.
Edit: I have long since sold the excal I reviewed here. But now own two more of them. They are still excellent although I use a viking for tournament play. The only reason for this is that I don't like matching paint on a tournament morning, only to have to rematch it as the day warms up. Excaliburs still feel like a solid weapon to me, and they are great fun to play with.
