Review: I acquired my GZ-1000 as an add-in to a purchase several years ago. I've used it in several games, but it's by no means my "standard" on-field shootin' iron. The closest modern comperable, I believe, would be the Brass Eagle Talon. The GZ is relatively quick shooting once you get the hang of the finger/hand positioning. There are finger knurls for your index and middle finger of your non-shooting hand, and you push the cocking button with your thumb.

As the GZ is based on the SplatMaster, that feature will be familiar to shooters of that gun. Improvements include, and are mostly limited to, the direct feed rather than tube feed only. A hopper could be adapted to mount on the GZ, but I'd recommend nothing larger than a 40-round ammo box, due to balance. Other than that, the GZ is cosmetically different, molded in black composite with a ribbed barrel.
Conclusion: Since these are getting harder to find in good condition, they're more of a collector than a serious field piece. I wouldn't recommend someone go out and try to find one to play with on a regular basis, but they're entertaining little guns. For their time and age, I'd rate these as a 7 out of 10. You can't really compare something like this to anything from modern times!
Rating:
7 out of 10
