I play woodsball and have always sworn by my old faithful Tippmann Pro/Carbine. I wanted to get a good extra gun for friends to use. Read the reviews and decided this would be a good choice. I have not been disappointed. I now split my time between the two.
Marker Setup: Tippmann Pro/Carbine w/ 14" Lapco Big Shot
Mokal Fokus VX2k3 w/ Mokal Expansion Chamber
J&J Edge Barrel Kit

Electronic Hopper
Feed Neck (if you can find one to fit)
Strengths: Fast
Light
Affordable
Weaknesses: Doesn't Like CO2 and weather (spoiled by Pro/Carb I guess)
Feed Neck
Review: I bought this gun as a spare and fell in love with it. It is very quick and very accurate right out of the box. The first day I had it out it worked well. I had a run in with some swollen paint and it began breaking balls. I was also using a gravity feeder that didn't help with my new found speed or my poor paint.

By the next day I had added a barrel kit and electronic hopper. The Mokal was dialed in. I learned the meaning of shooting darts. Maybe three broken balls out of 1000 (I can live with that) and it shot right through them.

I love my old tippmann, but this is a close second and still growing on me. I got the expansion chamber, but have since gone to air. Tried the CO2 just to see and wasn't nearly as impressed. My pro/carb is reliable, but in no way compares to the accuracy of the Mokal.

The biggest drawback is the feedneck. It is very easy to tear up O-rings if you take your hopper in and out very much. I have tried to find a replacement, but no one has been able to tell me what type of threads match up.


Conclusion: Solid gun at a solid price. Looks good and performs even better.
