Review: This is my first marker, so i wasn't looking to break the bank when i got it. (That's a good aspect of this marker).

When i first shot it i did notice the loudness of it, but it didnt really bother me that much. I was aiming at a tree and hit it within the first 3 shots.
My first actual in-game experience with it was at a friend's house, and we played in a big wooded area. Let me tell you this before i go on too far. YOU NEED TO TURN IT DOWN OUT OF THE BOX. i know it was shooting too many fps, and i didn't have to chrono it.
But anyway, the marker performed really well. The only accuracy problems i had were from chopping, and thats only because we were using REALLY cheap paint, and the marker was probably firing way too many fps. I did have problems with dry firing, but i didnt have my TSA at that time. Now i can get pretty close to that claimed 15-17 bps. Soon i'll get a chance to play speedball with it, and i'll do an update on this review.
Conclusion: I would recommend this product to any new paintballer who wants to go electro early, but doesn't have the cash to get a higher grade marker.
7 out of 10
