Review: I picked up this wonderful thing at a pawn shop for 40 bucks, and from what I have heard that is great for such an old marker.
It obviously doesn't have the BPS of even my 98 and could barely keep up with my friends Eradicator I'm sure, actually that is faster too. It is very rugged like my 98 and I think I now have a new lover just on those grounds. It obviously is old, but I wrapped the cocking nob is some duct tape to make sure it stays in one piece. It isn't quite but that is only expected. It is accurate enough, I really didn't have a place to chrono it or shoot far down range. Trigger is fine just a little wobbly where it is connected, much smaller than even the 98's trigger. I love the way it plugs up CO2 in the back, which bring me to another thing.
This marker isn't exactly like the one in the picture, it has only one back port for CO2, but it is definently an Alley Cat. Also the barrel isn't as puffy and is just as wide as where it connects, so I wonder if this is even the stock barrel. Of course with no vertical port I have a better way of holding it, so plus there! The safety is weird, because you press it in and it goes only half way and the gun can still fire, you have to lightly pull the trigger and push it all the way in at the same time. If the the gun is not cocked the safety works fine.
Conclusion: I think this is a very cool and useful marker, I hope it stays in working condition, and if I ever get tired of it, which will be in a couple decades! lol. I can sell it to a collector or a person who doesn't like 500bps in the year 2035, lol.

If you ever find this marker for less than a hundred and you have some cash buy it.
BUY IT, I didn't even know it was a deal I got till recently.
