Review: I have had my RAM for a little over 2 years now, and let me tell you it is the best marker I have ever shot/owned. T

he customer service for RAP4 is great and the owner KT will help you out in any way possible.

Whenever I go to my field all I get is questions about it, and comments about how people want to be on my team. There is a big intimidation factor with this gun.

The ejecting shells are wonderful, but I recommend a shell catcher if you will be sniping. Because there is no hopper, you don't have to worry about those annoying hopper shots, or your hopper giving away your position.

The RAM also has a VERY high rate of fire IF adjusted correctly. I can get my marker up to 26 BPS per second. I consider that extremely fast for a low end mechanical marker.

I do not recommend it for speedball though. The mags only hold 21 rounds, and the gun and load out is a bit heavy.

Let's talk about the accuracy. This is one of the most accurate markers I have ever shot, and with 7 years of paintballing experience, I think I know accuracy. When prone I get head shots on my man shaped target at distances of 150'. The balls do get blown around a bit on a windy day, but when its a nice day out, this thing is STELLAR. That is once you get it tuned right. Most people don't take the time to tune it.

Another thing I like about this gun, is that it can be submerged in water, and still shoot perfectly. The paintballs are another matter, use 'em quick before they swell up.




BAD THINGS

Reliability: Lets just say when I first got mine, it was like a school lunch. It looked good on the outside, but on the inside it was just crap. I sent it to get repaired 3 times, and had many problems outside that, that I fixed on my own. This thing is a hassle to tune once you first get it. It takes a lot of tinkering and patience, but once you get it, boooyyy do you get it.
Conclusion: I would not trade my RAM for any other marker in the world. It may be a hassle when you first get it, but keep with it, and you will be VERY pleased with the results.

One final not, a lot of fields do not like the different caliber paint, but if you just show up, they are usually so stunned by the looks and operation of it, that they let you play anyways.

It gets a 9 out of 10 because of the durability.
