Products Used:
View Loader Orion (not as good)

Marker Setup: Ben Tippmann BT-4 Combat with 14" smart parts linear, BT expansion chamber (havn't tried expansion chamber yet), 20oz Co2,regular grav loader.
Barrel for sure, the Linear has worked great for me and it was only $40 Canadian (even looks cool)

Expansion Chamber, without it marker uses a lot of gas and experiences velocity spikes and drops.
Strengths: Accurate, Nice feel, good stock sights, Accepts many tippmann upgrades, durable, looks great
Weaknesses: Gas hog, doesn't accept tippmann response trigger, balls sometimes roll out of the barrel.
Review: First I'll say that this marker is the first that I have owned. So far I am very happy with the performance of the BT-4 with only two major complaints. First, this gun likes the Co2, big clouds shoot out of the barrel often, I hope this will be easily fixed with the expansion chamber . My second complaint is that sometimes when moving around I notice balls dropping out of the barrel. I assume this is a problem with the ball detent but I havn't really figured it out yet. With the longer smart parts linear barrel this marker is really quite accurate, and gets good distance, generally if I can see my enemies I can hit them. The rate of fire isn't too quick but I hope that BT will come out with their own version or the RT trigger or an electronic trigger frame. Once I have added the expansion chamber, a powered loader and a new trigger I expect that this will be an excellent bushball/rec-ball gun. The BT-4's internal functions are essentially identical to the custom 98 but I prefer the feel and look of the BT-4. If you are looking for an upgradable, reliable, accurate, durable and great looking marker for bush or rec play I recommend this product. Also for those who want a platform to build a scenario/military style marker on this would be an excellent choice.
Conclusion: This is a good, durable and accurate marker ideal for bush/rec ball. The BT-4 is reasonably priced and will be easily upgraded. This is definitely a good option that will compete well with the competition from spyder and tippmann.
8 out of 10
