Review: I bought this gun from one of by friends who, after playing like 2 days with it decided to get a Proto matrix (go figure). When I brought it out, I had my fair share of problems, like the macro line leaking, velocity issues and inconsistency, all easily fixed save the latter. It took me a while to get the velocity right, because the dwell buttons make velocity changes too drastic. It seemed like I was stuck at either 270 or 305 the whole time, but it eventually evened out. The barrel that it comes with has the same problem that many stock barrels have. I call have diagnosed it, "my stockus-is crappus". Although the progressive barrel is significantly better than what the stocks usually are these days, I stil expected better from e-paintball outlet. However flawed I may seem to think this gun is, I am still very happy with it's performance. the speed is superb (even with stock board) and the efficiency and accuracy are great too. I would strongly recommend this gun to anyone looking for an electro gun that doesn't want to spend a fortune, but still rip with the best on the field. The freak system or other barrel system is well worth the money as well. And if the ricket board is getting old, invest in the WAS Equalizer to make it even faster.
Conclusion: Not sure the limited edition run adds a whole lot, but as usual, the rat is a great gun. Great stuff to start out with and more opportunity to upgrade (as is any impy). The barrel leaves some to be desired as does the regulator, but overall, the gun is very good for the price.

You called this gun, light AND big/heavy, this review is unhelpful. Next time, you might want to make sure you only use one adjective, and not different ones.
