Review: Ok, first time i tried airing this thing up with upgrades from my '04 GTI, i had a leak down the barrel and bottemline. easily fixed, but a bigger problem came up. the gun wouldnt cock back and kept double/triple shooting. something had to be wrong with the hammer, but turns out the regulator didnt work properly. went to stock gas-thru grip instead. anyway, after that, thats when i could actually fire the darn thing. with all the upgrades i had, it amazingly accurate. i havent shot it with stock parts, so...i cant really say about it being all stock. now, with the Shocktech Superfly bolt combline with the Smart Parts Progressive barrel make a deadly combination on the new GTI. heck, i was firing random shots and it was shooting straight everytime. each ball hit with about a 1 to 2 foot range from the target. what really suprised me was its firing rate. shooting the alone without air, felt a bit slow. but for some reason, the gun shoots faster when it has air in it. only reason why i had problems in the first place was from a couple of the upgrades not working properly. other than that, good gun to have...i wouldve give it a 10 if it didnt have problems with the upgrades. other GTI users beware....this thing shoots very high velocity, be sure to change the springs...but even with it, it still break 300 fps. i suggest getting a spring kit or the Shocktech shim kit.
Conclusion: want a low-end marker? go out an get this. if want to save a little bit of money, get a '04 GTI (slighty slower)

Dispute:
There is no regulator on the GTI. There is only an expansion chamber.

If he put a LP reg on there(as most are) it wouldn't work. The GTI runs at 850 psi.
