Review: Well I was at academy today shopping for some bb's until I saw this gun. 35 dollars! I don't know if it was on sale or not but I bought it because I wanted to experiment around with it since it was cheap and all. As soon as I got home I upgraded some of the parts on the Vexor that were compatible with some of my spyder spyder parts. Odyssey barrel, odyssey twistclamping feedneck. I took it outside and gave it a test.

The test was conducted under 70* weather, none to little wind, Super Swirl paintballs (perfect paint/barrel match), 20oz Co2.

50ft - excellent accuracy at this range, ball on ball to about 3 inches apart.
75ft - very good accuracy, ball on ball to about 5 inches apart.

I was able to actually fire roughly at about 5-7bps with my finger at 280 fps with +/-8 deviation.

I took the gun back inside and opened her up. The internals are very nicely made, I would have to say the quality a little better than most of the guns in it's class. I would say it's on par with kingman's standards. A unique thing about this gun though is that the velocity adjuster isn't like the spyder that requires a quick strip pin, but its screws on and off. Yes, you can't really quick strip it but the bolt pin comes off so you can clean the bolt area without taking out any of the other internals, really smart I must say. The placement of the foregrip is what really impressed me, the foregrip gives it a sort of Timmy feel in a blowback. The milling is really unique as well nothing you will see in any of the clones out there.

Really I am impressed with this marker and I will enjoy using it despite the fact that it's a mechanical and a blowback. for a mechcanical blowback its fast, its accurate, and it's cheap!
Conclusion: I am very impressed with this blowback, with a price tag of 35 dollars! I really recommend this gun to anybody looking for a gun with performance at a very affordable pricetag. I'm giving it a 10 for being the best marker I have ever tried at this unbelievable price tag.
10 out of 10
