Review: This long weekend, I went up to my buddies cottage for a fun weekend of woodsballing. None of us are pros at paintballing, we just wanted to have a good time. Out in the woods, this gun performed very well; it was shooting straight and true, 0 balls chopped out of 600 rounds, and full auto was simply awesome for unloading on trees other people were hiding behind.

Another thing I have to mention is this markers durability. I must've knocked it against a tree like 3 times (stupid me) and it was still good to go. Suddenly hitting the deck from a standing position didn't mess up the insides or chop any balls. I won that woodsballing fiesta too ; )

EDIT (November 06): Okay, so after having this marker for a while now, there are definatly a few problems with it. I find it really hard to field strip, and the internals a pretty low quality, compared to the BT4 internals. For example, the BT4 spring guide is made of metal. Eventually, my PCS spring guide (plastic) completely snapped. When I asked for a new one, PMI sent me a Piranah spring guide (thanks..) The spring guide was free though.
Conclusion: This is an okay marker for your first. Personally, I would seek other options. Im against the mainstream, but the A5 is a pretty good alternative. This gun was great at first, but when the bad customer service and the low quality internals came into play, this marker got really frustrating to maintain.
