1 year
Products Used:
Spyder Rodeo, Tippmann A5
Marker Setup: MacDev reg, 16" progressive barrel, 20oz tank, Ricochete AK, rail offset with red dot scope, JCS RVA w/ combat folding stock
A Good Regulator
A Rear Velocity Adjuster
A Barrel Upgrade
A Electronic Hopper to Keep up w/ E trigger
Strengths: Fast Rate of Fire
Lots of Upgrades
Weaknesses: Cant Accept All A5 upgrades
Cant Field Stip easily

Review: I finally got to field test the gun in the first scenario of the year.
Gun performed to standard. I never had 1 chopped ball.
Make sure you buy a good brand of paint. This gun does shoot hard.
The RVA was a great add on and so was the reg. It made the gun perform even better.
The quick rate of fire change button worked fantastic. It came in very handy on several occasions when changing from assault to sniping I could quickly change from single to full auto.

Update: Make sure the paint you buy is a good or decent brand. I had alot of trouble with origin paint.
Conclusion: Great gun
I think PMI has a winner with its first scenario maker.
You can get most all the perks of the A5 without the money.

If you dont believe me check out some of the other reviews.

Nice review! I love the pic of the gun. Makes mine look so weak.
I am only running an expansion chamber and red dot, and for barrels i have the Apex and a ACI Zero Gravity. Love this gun. That's all i can say. Not as easy as spyders to clean, but well worth the $135 i paid for it with the auto trigger.
total spent for me is $135 gun, $40 Ricochet AK, $80 Apex Barrel, and $20 ACI Zero Gravity which brings the total to about $275. Well worth it and still cheaper than an A5.
Best of luck to you and the US-5. I know i will keep it for a long time.

Im really interested in purchasing this marker... But i want to know if the Lapco Bigshot barrel will work well on this marker

Hey the Smart Parts Progressive or J&J Ceramic are both realy nice inexpensive Barrels. But you can also use a bigshot but you would have to get one that is threaded for spyder guns. That is the adapter that comes with these markers.

actually i believe that it could take a new trigger. i opened up the trigger assembly today and i think you could do it.
