Review: Looks:
First impressions were awesome. Comes in its own foam gun bag. Beautiful dust matte finish on my pewter borg. The milling is just amazing, profile is so darn thin, although the gun looks tall in pictures. Simple and clean design, while being ergonomic in all paintballing needs. Doesn't look that mean, at home at least =P

Performance:
OMG. I have to say it again, OMG =O
I have my HPR at 210, and LPR at 60ish. Shooting 285 +-3 (careful when adjusting LPR and HPR, gun is very sensitive to even a 1/5 turn, I learned the hard way when i blew my HPR gauge)

With everything hooked up, gun is superior in weight, profile, and personal feel. Perfect gun balance with everything on. With the Hybrid Rail and CP bleeding on/off on the gun, plus my MacDev LegionAir and Halo B, gun feels light as a feather. Easy to look down the barrel. Easy to turn a corner and snapshoot. Trigger is fast, although the back of the last set screw keeps grinding into the back of my trigger frame. I'm thinking about investing in a PBK Saber trigger to solve that issue and to have the feel like that of my critical trigger on my Alias. Gun doesn't skip a heartbeat on trigger pull and laying down ropes. Basically, you aim at it, it's going off the field with broken paint between its eyes. Virtually no kick while shooting at high rates while remaining super consistent.

Maintenance:
Not much you need to do here. You really only need to lube the bolt after every time you play with a light coat of Tri-Flow. LPR, RAM, and Glad really easy to take apart and lube with DOW 55, although only really needed to be done every 10,000-20,000 shots.

Efficiency:
I got about 1600 shots off a 68/4500. When you first get the gun though, it needs to break in a little bit. You might also hear a metal pinging sound. It's nothing to worry about as I found out on PBnation. At first I got around 1350-1450 shots off a 68/4500. Now i am very happy with not having to go back to the fill station all the darn time.
Conclusion: No gun will ever be perfect for everybody. Yet, whatever gun it may be, it could be perfect for you. This gun is perfect for me. Light, dependable, fast, sexy, and worth the dollar in comparison to many other high end guns out.

See you on the field

Tri-flow, even in the squit bottle, might be a pretty bad idea as it eats orings and erodes delrin just like WD40 or any teflon spray.
