Review: This is probably the cheapest quality paintball marker you could ever buy. In fact, for the average woodsball game, you could add enough accessories to beat an Angel owner! In speedball, it's tendency to jam when fired rapidly can come into play at the worst moments imaginable, leaving nothing between that sweet Angel and your head. On the positive side, its durability and reliability match the Tippmann line. Also, it looks like it's a modern, quality gun...which it is. It's accuracy is adequate right out of the box, so you can head to Wal-Mart, give the clerk a few $20 bills, and start playing right away.

And that's part of the downside. The CO2 tank, as some other people claimed, is useless once it's empty.
Conclusion: Other than that, I haven't found any other major shortfalls. I give the VeXor semi-auto an 8 out of 10.

It's pretty obvious you are really exited about joining the sport. Congratulations! However, if you are going to call the gun durable and reliable yet have only used it less than a month, that is a useless statement. I also suspect that comparing your Vexor with Angels is only going to anger people who probably know quite a bit more about comparisons, that statement is also pretty useless (and untrue, even in woodsball). A little post purchase advice: don't invest a lot in this gun. Learn the game, get your skills up, save a little more money, ask around to people who have been playing for awhile for their preffered gun and why. I think you'll come to the same conclusion most new players do, Wal Mart is not the place to buy a serious paintshooter.

If it shoots paintballs and doesn't break as fast as a Brass Eagle Talon, I'll think about getting it. The VeXor falls into that category. Also, I have sent it to hell and back within that one-month period. If it wasn't durable and reliable, it would have been scraps by now.
