Review: I have owned 3 of these an AT-85, an AT-4 and a AT-16. I sold the 85 and still have the other 2. These markers are alot of fun. The also require alot of attention as there is a lot of things to learn on them. I also own quite a few different markers, ( a love affair with paintball)
Now for my review this being the second I have written for the AT-16 because someone caused the other to be deleted. Anyway... I had read reviews on the ATS line and was curious on how the worked being a semi or full auto marker without a special grip frame also clip feed from under the marker, I drove 4 hours to see the guy whom I bought mine off of as he wanted $1200 for the 16. So I arrived and since he lived in the city I did not get to see it work only got to see it in dryfire mode, He had 2 of these and a RAP 4 we both agreed that the Rap 4 was junk, ( this was in 2001 and an earlier verison of the RAP) So I was impressed and so upon haggling over the price he gave me the 16 plus the receiver of an AT-4 for parts. I had no manual and when I got home I thought I would try it out. I loaded a clip and gassed it up upon pulling the trigger I got 2 shots then nothing. I had put 25 paintballs in the clip and had gotten it binded up which caused the guide plate to break. I ordered a manual and 5 guide plates. When they arrived I took the whole thing apart and learned how to work on it. I practiced with it and got used to the motions of using this thing like when you have a dead trigger to eject the clip and hit the reset button so you do not double ball the barrel and break paint.
When I first took it to the field to play everyone assumed it was a modified Tippman also they thought it was just a response trigger( lol) After the first game a hundred questions about my marker especially from a teammate that nearly peed himself because he didn't know I was behind him until I pulled the trigger, This marker is very loud. The 2 of us took on a large group and we won the game for our team.
I always get comments on this marker, I love that they are very much like an autococker in that they cycle with a 4 way valve and are closed bolt. It also has the longest barrel I have ever seen in paintball. 23" one piece. it also has a unisizer that sizes each paintball to the barrel. ATS also had barrel sizers long before Smart Parts freak and OTP dream barrel came out. These markers do not like large bore paint nor does it like cheap made paint.
Conclusion: I would reommend this marker or any ATS marker because they are extremly fun and if your looking for a uniqe marker that looks,feels and shoots like a real military weapon then this is the marker for you... if your only wanting the look then convert a Spyder or Tippmann or buy an Armotech or Ariakon
