The 9 volt battery is kinda tight fitting in the handle.
I am New to paintball and had no idea of what a fully auto paintball gun would do, it was a little tricky for me figuring out the sequence needed to get it to shoot full auto which is 3 quick trigger pulls and hold on the fourth but once you get it you got it,,the manual claims it shoots 15 bps but I havent been counting,,It empties a FULL hopper in what I believe to be 7 seconds ,, I will add that as a newbie it took me a minute to figure out there was switches inside the handle I needed to flip in order for the modes to change but figured it out once I started to read the instructions and paperwork included,,,,,the marker came pre-set on B Ramp which is 18 BPS,,the sequence of trigger pulls is: Pull and hold trigger= 2 balls, pull and release= 3 balls, Ramp is activated on the 1st trigger pull. Must Pull and release trigger at a rate of 4+ pulls per second.,,,,NOW,,,In this mode if your fast on the trigger it WILL blow the full auto mode out of the water,,hehehehe,,,My neighbor has a spyder and when he seen me shooting in this mode at the tree in my front yard,,not really knowing the firing sequence but just screwing off pulling the trigger as fast as I could his 1st two words was in quote "holy ----",,,lol,,,which made me feel good and when I looked at him he had that Im going to get a different marker look on his face,,,lol,,,Another Mode is the TA- Ramp mode,,it claims 15 BPS,,ramp begins after 3rd trigger pull, this mode is 3balls out then a rapid two or three,,,,,I havent shot enough in this mode to describe it that well but will over the weekend, the last mode is Semi-Mode which claims 18 balls per second,,again I have not been in this mode alot either,,,,single trigger pull = single shot,,,NOW,,,,,this marker does have the eyes in it which I think is really cool,,,,,my friends spyder chops a ball every hopper,,,,This Marker only chops a ball when you screw up hitting the trigger,if you trigger it correct (fire/pull the trigger) it will NOT chop a ball, However if you do Chop a ball, which I have out of acting stupid and getting crazy with the trigger, I have found that a simple hit with a swab without the cocking bolt does not really do the trick due to what I believe being paint being on the eyes, so I take my allen and remove the covers which hold the eyes on either side of the marker and clean the eyes themself with a soft cloth as to not scratch,,,,,Remember ,,,I am a newbie,,,,so if doing this is wrong then please tell me,,,,Ive since calmed a little as to prevent cleaning,,,,Honestly this is a Awesome Kicka-- Marker in my opinion,,,,and everyone who has seen it is impressed ,,,,,,,oh yea,,,,here is one for ya ,,,,After shooting it my wife wants one and wants to play also,,,,we innitiated her in my neighbors backyard by shooting her in the leg,,lol,,,however the deal was she was able to shoot me twice with it and well on that note I can tell ya that you cant move fast enough,,lol,,,as far as accuracy,,,,the barrels are nice, Ive mostly been using the longer out of the two 2-pc barrels,,Ive only been shooting a large tree in my front yard and the shots have been grouping in a 5 - 10 inch diameter consistently but I have only been screwing around and not really holding it steady.,,,The only con to this marker which I now understand there is a reason for is the mode switches to change the fire are inside the handle,,,,,,I cured this by using a dremel and cutting a small hole in the grip to access the switches with a small screwdriver so that I could change the way it fires without taking the handle on and off each time, it is a pain to retuck the wires and airline which goes into the handle and I was afraid of pinching something,,,the 9 volt fits kinda tight and caution in this area is a must to prevent maybe screwing something up.
I would recommend this Marker to someone new as myself as a competitive, user friendly, cost efficient marker to get you started,,,I Promise you will not be disappointed. I do Recommend you use nitrogen/compressed air over co2 due to freeze up in rapid fire.
I think the cap is like 22 bps. As to the accuracy, i have shot one at the field and while it sucks in comparison to my cocker, it is actually pretty decent. It is at least or maybe better than any spyder i have ever shot.
The stock barrels are rather nice. But upgrading is a good thing to do. The trigger is just a double trigger. You can try Badlandspaintballs but I don't think they have the Trilogy Pro SF I know they have just the Pro tho.

But they are break beam. So it shouldn't matter what color the ball is right? If there is something between the eyes color should be irrelevant. I'm just trying to learn. I have never had an electro before so this is new to me. Thanks for the help.
And i was all worried about short stroking my SF aww but for some of the questions it is most definantly break beam and for that cocking rod jumping thing make sure you cock it before you gas it up and if you forget just hold back the bolt and fire and release the bolt sometimes that works. but really you should use the forums for these questions so you dont clog up the comments
