Review: Overall this gun is attractive, efficient, and quiet. Out of the box operational w/ minor reg adjustment. Easy to maintain and the delrin parts are a much appreciated upgrade from previous models. In the hands of a good player this is a lethal marker!

Cons-

The trigger is much slower than any DYE trigger frame. Trigger is also a bit bulky for my tastes. Mabye its just mine but i have noticed the saftey interferes with trigger operation with the slightest bump also my marker can fire with saftey engaged you just have to manually return the trigger forward.

When i first pressured my gun up the 3 way hose to the jackhammer popped right off but it was easily replaced. Feed neck is rather large and hard to adjust once a hopper is on the marker ( at least with a VL REV due to battery compartment).

I find the hopper adapter to be very difficult to adjust once hopper is on the gun, also it large and intrusive when sighting down the body. If this can be replaced it should!

Also IMHO the drop is OK because i like KAPP Drop Zone's anyway BUT the on/off is huge(although it works excellently).


Pros-

Light, Sleek, very accurate stock 2-piece barrel, very smooth on/off action, comes with a rebuild kit, Presetup for E-grips( if you like that sort of thing), delrin bolt, and the excellent array of quality ANS internals and pneumatics.
Conclusion: This is a truly wonderful cocker and can be turned into an A1 slaughtering machine with a few aftermarket parts. The trigger may just need to be worn in, I just think the trigger truly stinks. Get a dye frame on the bad mother and a madman spring kit.

Overall This is the best mechanical stock marker i have ever used.

Definatlly not worth 500$ but i got mine new in the box for 250$ so i cant complain :) :)
