Experience:

Similar
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.
Recommended
Upgrades:
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.
