Review: This marker is old, and has alot of history. This marker was the tourney gun back in the day. It weighs a crap ton, it eats CO2 like 427 vettes eat gasoline.

I still love it.

The marker is accurate, (equal with all the tippmanns). Its has a decent rof for its class. It's kinda scarey looking, and the horzontal tank under the barrel is crazy looking. It kicks like a mule when it fires, but you can make these guns about 4 feet long with barrels and stocks, and makes for a crazy-fun woods gun. I would'nt play with this gun if it was my only one, I just enjoy getting it out with friends and giving it a whirl. Its many flaws (well considered today to be flaws, considered back then to be awesome) would keep me from playing with it exclusively. I would recommend anyone who wants a cool marker for cheap (check ebay) and to own a piece of early semi-auto history to seek one out and give it a whirl.
Conclusion: Lots of fun, and very nastalgic (considering I played when this thing was considered the best around.) People who want one gun to do all things, should avoid it due to the above, but for just playing woods ball with a large gas hoggin brute of a paintball gun, by all means get one and have fun!! The 9 rating is for when it was a brand new design. Now I would give a 7 or so.
9 out of 10
