3 months
Products Used:
Tippmann 98 Custom- nice gun but pain in the ass to take apart.
Tippmann A-5- I think some of the parts used on this gun are manufactured by some of the same manufacturers as tippmann.
GameFace Recon- Fast reliable gun.
Marker Setup: PCS US-5 Electronic Gun with 2 piece All american Barrel, Custom Mag Kit, PCS SAW Stock(very comfortable stock by the way), Halo Backman Hopper, and a remote line.
Kingman Spyder Xtra- don't buy this, just get an imagine, its way faster and you can get them on action village for 65.00 dollars sometimes.
Definitely new barrel, maybe expansion chamber if you use co2 on gun, and a better bolt.
Strengths: Inexpensive
Decent rate of fire
Easy Trigger Swap
Weaknesses: Plastic Bolt
Stock barrel is pretty crappy
Review: All right now, I bought this gun about a month ago and I have gotten a lot of criticism from Tippmann owners already. Most have told me this gun sucks because it has no cyclone loader(and its not a tippmann). Who needs a cyclone loader if you buy a good electronic hopper, Cyclone loader can't be exchanged with other guns. The gun is very solid and hasn't given me any serious problems yet. However if you break a ball in the gun, your accuracy will suck ass until you open it up and clean it. The rate of fire is enough to scare most poeple into cover and a tippmann E-Grip only goes 2 balls per second faster.

The gun will accept any A-5 stock which is definitely a plus, and some A-5 magkits(as long as it can be bolted through the bottom of the gun, on the bolt that originally held the stock handle).

I played with this gun a weekend ago and most of the poeple we were playing with were sporting A-5s and 98s and such. It handled very well and I was hitting poeple from awesome distances with the full auto(I can't aim worth crap so I just unload on people when I get in range). Most of the Tippmann loyalists stop telling me crap about my gun after that game. In fact some them were asking me where to get one.

Conclusion: Overall this gun is great gun for the price. It has a decent rate of fire and can look pretty menacing with the right upgrades. If you want a higher rate of fire for a similar price range, you might want to look into the Kingman MR-2 Or the game face recon. Both of those guns have a milsim look with a good rate fire. Personally I love the way the US-5 looks and handles so I am giving it a 9 out of 10
9 out of 10
