Easy to maintenance. doesn't break paint. accurate.
You can't find 'em any more. see review.
Well, when was first looking at a pump gun, I started looking at a phantom pump, but they are rather expensive. I then found the am-p illusion. the reviews on the internet were amazing and I set out to find one. What I did find was that the company had been sued out of existence by WGP and Brass Eagle for "infringing" on patents just 3 months before I began looking for their product. I kept looking though and found a used gun online for $280 with a bunch of extras. It came broken, but I stuck with it and fixed it and it paid off.
It was really easy to fix; i just needed to take the gun apart, clean it, and oil it and it worked like a dream.
This gun is awesome. the accuracy is great right out of the box. the stock barrel has a bigger bore (.691) so it is harder to find a paint to bore match, but if you can it is awsome. I found a great paint to bore match and was able to hit a 4" diameter tree from 50' away 3 out of 5 times. the two that missed were about two inches away from the tree and there isn't much horizontal stray. the balls basically veer slightly left.
The pump stroke is amazing. It is so smooth that I can get about 5 bps out of it in bursts. Even my Grandma can cock the gun without breaking a sweat. In one word: butter.
I haven't played a game with it yet, but it promises to woop butt.
If you have the opportunity to buy a used one, jump on it and run. this thing is awesome.
10 out of 10
