Review: When I first got my marker I was so excited. That didn't last very long when I hooked air up to it and it began to leak. So started my many calls to Rap4. Long Distance mind you at my expence! It seems like once one thing was fixed another issue would come up. The leaking stoped, the thing wouldn't recock, metal shavings in the action... it was never ending. Finally after switching out all the internals and still having problems I sent it back. Keep in mind this was over a period of a few months at which time I kept useing my tippmann.... which I will add has not let me down once. Anyway I get the marker back and gas it up. Recocking problems yet again. I know some of you guys have had an ok experience but it seems I am finding more and more people who are experiencing major problems with theses guns. Out of my three friends who picked one up, 2 of us still do not have a fully working marker. My third friend has a working marker but only after switching out all his internals as well. Now I know some of you guys will just assume I am a tippmann guy, or I never maintained the marker good enough..... well when you take the marker out of the box, take the action apart lube everything, reassemble and test.... well I don't think maintence has even had the time to become a factor. One thing I did notice is the spring inside the action was in two peices? A full length spring and a partial spring. Rap4 said this is normal... ???

Conclusion: My conclusion, I paid for a marker because it looked awesome but have discovered it isn't functional. What rating should I give it as a marker. I am sory but I think before all else a marker "should at least work" when you buy it new. If it doesn't work then there is a problem and based on what has happened afterwards, the phone calls, mailing of parts, returning the marker, still having problems I have to give this marker a 1.

I am giving it a 1 because it does not work. Even working version are prone to failure because this is not a well made marker. Metal is soft. I am very disapointed in this product. I wish I could just say it sucks and be done with it but the fact remains I am out my money and all I have to show for it is a marker that dont work....
