I am overall pretty impressed with my gun.
Mine leaks alot. When I first got it it leaked out the front of the lower chamber, fixed it with teflon tape. Leaks out the barrel, need to replace valve cup seal.
My springs shoot ridiculously high. Medium Velocity=320 FPS min., LV=300 FPS min., no problem I cut down the springs.
The trigger is a weird shape, takes a little getting used to, having mine of 3 months really helps and I can do about 11BPS.
Feedneck-very small, had to sand down my egg, you cant replace it because it is welded on.
Inexpensive-If you look at actionvillage.com they have it for $100
Colors-I have the gunmetal to olive fade and it looks really good, the milling is well done, nice but not super extraordinary
Small profile-this marker is very compact, snap shooting is very easy, and pretty easy to hold. it is also very light
17 BPS-this gun shoots really fast, if you can do it.
Field stripping-this marker is very easy to take apart. Youll understand after 2 times of doing so.
Fairly accurate but a barrel is the best upgrade.
UPDATE: the leaks in my gun were not easily fixable. I sent it into PMI and the "fixed" it 4 free. However when i got it back (2 weeks, not bad, nice box, well packed) there was still a leak, minor however, still losing enough air to make me uneasy. I have emailed them again and will see the results. this is after 4 months. My GTI worked the first month and has died on me. Will see what PMI does, hope they fix it 4 free again. Ill update later and leave the score the same 4 now.
Update: i fixed the gun, and it works flawlessly again. if u have problems with ur marker PMI will fix it, my prob was retefloning (new word) the screw under the valve
6 onth update: I have owned the GTI for 6 months now. After the initial big problem, it has not had any problems. I can consistenly get the trigger to 10 BPS. The only upgrade I have is the CP, and boy do I love it. I have even outlasted my friends SRT and have had less problems than my friends Wrath. A suggestion, if you go ballin' in the rain, duct tape around the top of the trigger frame, it will keep the water out and you will save your board.
Post in the comments, I will check back frequebtly or PM me if you have any questions on the GTI. soccerjacks12
Good marker, good buy, but be prepared to mod it a bit. If you can shell the extra cash go for a Mongoose, EVO, or Ion.
Good buy for newer players, recommend it and you get PMI customer service and they fix everything
P.S. The NEW GTI IS THE 05, unlike what PBR lists this marker as, check out buypmi.com if you don't believe me
