Review: After reading the many reviews about the marker and comparing it to the A-5, I decided to buy the BT 4 Assault. The A-5 is nice, but would require more upgrades , than the BT4. I like play mil/scenarios and play strictly woods ball,so the design of the marker was also a deciding factor. I was truly impressed with the distance and and accuracy of this marker. We played for 5 hours yesterday and did not break on ball. I was using Scorch paintballs. I was taking out guys that were hiding behind brush. The sights are an added bonus , but to be truly honest, unless you're sniping, they don't really matter. The again, the marker is designed to assault, right. The marker itself is a bit bulky, but one has to understand that when you add the design as a deciding factor. Being ex- military I like it and did not really have a problem with the weight. I will admit, that a 20 oz CO2 tank, will add weight and may be heavy for some. That's where a good remote comes in handy. I added a tactical sling , which I bought at Academy for 5.00 bucks, this also gives your arms a rest during breaks in play. Overall this marker is very impressive, accurate, fast and has great distance. I would recommend this marker for all you mil/ scenario or woods playing folks.

Now for the bad news. After tearing down the marker for cleaning, which is fairly uncomplicated, I notice that the powertube had a crack in it. It did not appear to affect the marker any. I have taken it back to the proshop where I bought it and they are replacing for free, ( one year warranty). I personally dislike plastic internal parts.
Conclusion: Despite the crack on the powertube, which could have been a defect; this marker is very impressive. If I had to decide all over again between the A5- and the BT4 , I would still choose the BT4.

BT is aware of the problem with the power tube and are taking measures with replacing them but I would suggest getting a DOP aluminum power tube.
