Review: Ok so I am not going to bore you with something lik how much I like it and that crap(though I do love it) so on to my review.

This is a GOOD beginner marker as I said in my strenghts, I think this is one of the best low-end markers out there do to the total performance of this marker. Now I will back up my Key Strengths and Weaknesses starting with strenghts. So the thing that I love about this marker is the CAMD(Color Access Mode Display) not that I really have to explain anything about it I just like it because it gives you the option of changing modes during a game. This marker has quite good accuracy i'd say 7/10 10 being a cocker and 1 you throwing the paint yourself. Now speed,on semi the pilot can acording to the kingman website do 14 bps but the bord is capped at 13 (good luck getting to 11though) I myself can walk 9-12 BPS. The Modes aren't really that useful to me even though there are semi 3rnd burst 6rnd burst and auto. I just think it looks nice Camo. Once my friend accidental dropped my pilot on to the ground from 4 feet up smashing onto the VERY HARD ground and it was perfectly fine. I think this marker is very easy to clean just pull a pin and the bolt comes out. It does its job when something says 900 shots per tank it actually does that instead of 900 or 950 etc. In total iI think this marker preforms well.

VERY IMPORTANT MUST READ- This is regarding the bolt of the marker- It is your choice to buy a Delrin Bolt for this marker I myself will not be,why do you ask well when I use this marker I use it on semi auto becuase I am not a newb who only wants to use auto becuase they cant walk the trigger at all. it never chops for me on semi auto, unless the weather is fairly cold but that is normal.

Update: April/28/2006

I have found that over the months this marker has reduced chopping drastically. I can now shoot full auto(11BPS) and semi-auto(I can walk 12BPS max without a chop. It is amazing. its odd it just doesn't chop anymore. I think the reason it used to chop is because i used to use cheap paint with very thin shells. Now I use X.O. Industries hotbox paintballs, I recommend them for this marker.

Chopping 9/10
Accuracy 8/10
Speed 7/10
Efficiency 8/10
looks 8/10
Conclusion: I'm not one of those people who give it a 10/10 so even though I think this is a great marker I must give it a 8/10 but my reccomendation is to buy this marker if you are looking for something in the 200-300 dollar price range TRUST ME IT WILL NOT LET YOU DOWN
