Review: I got my Cyborg in with really high hopes and I am not disappointed. The anno is amazing and the milling is a huge improvement from the past models. Looked through the manual and quick stripped it right away to get an idea of what I was dealing with; it is very easy to disassemble and lube. The trigger is really smooth and the switch is very light. Adjusting the trigger is very easy via the three adjustment screws, after a few quick turns I had it right where I wanted it. I haven't messed with the board settings yet, but from what I can tell it is fairly easy to do.

After installing the rail and asa, I screwed on the barrel, tank and a hopper to get and idea of how heavy it would be. With everything on and a full hopper of paint it is still really light and easy to move around. I aired it up and took it to my backyard to test it out. Operating pressure is set from factory is 200psi, and it really doesn't need to be turned up much(just adjusted for fps). I fired off a few quick bursts and was pleased with the groupings that the included .689 bore Matchstik produced. I loved the feel of the Borg in my hands, it is pretty easy to keep it really tight to the body and still move around. This thing has absolutely NO KICK. I refilled the hopper to see what kind of efficiency I would get. On my 68/45 tank a full hopper used less than 500psi, I imagine I can get over 1500 shots on a full tank. My fingers aren't very fast, but I can see how someone could get 20+bps, and it is very likely that this thing can cycle up to 30bps on ramp or full auto. After all of this, I took the Borg apart to clean and lube it for the next use, there seemed to be no wear on the inside.
Conclusion: Overall I am extremely pleased with the new Cyborg, MacDev did a very good job on it. Beautiful package, great stock reg(Gladiator) and barrel(MatchStik), and its overall performance make it the best marker in its price range. If you are considering picking up a new 06 marker, I would definitely recommend looking into the Borg, it is definitely as good as or better than many of the best markers out there right now.

I'm wondering if Andrew will add a review section for the 2006 Cyborg.

I'm freakin curious why no idiots dont make a seperate review box for the 06 Cyborg because it's so different than the 04 cyborgs and sonic....

Wow... After I save some money and learn all about my PM6, my next marker is totally a 'borg. oh, one question... Is the cyborg a 'cocker?
