Review: I will EDIT this when I test it further. I only had like 7 2yr old Evil Paintballs to shoot out of it with a 9once CO2 tank so yea bare with me.


Well I've been waiting for this gun for like 2 weeks after paying for it and getting my local pb shop to order it. Somthing about the order never being processed. But, they were nice enough to knock down$10 off of it for the wait ;). The gun cost me a total of $110 without the rebate they gave me.

I got it opened it up and smelled the sweet smell of satisfaction :P

It's comfortable, light, skinny, all around SEXY! I had bought a bolt for it before the gun called a ShockTech Superfly Top Cocking Bolt. Seeing this gun is a top cocking it SHOULD have fit but it did'nt, but the shop told me they will help me find one that fits and they'll refund the one I had already bought.

When I shot it with a gravity fed hopper, seven 2yr old Evil paintballs, and a 9once CO2 at my dumspter at about 50 60 feet I was actually impressed at the low amount of kick.. Almost none as a matter of fact. The shot groupings were about one to one1/2 apart from each shot which I also thought was pretty nice.

Some people said that the bolt chopped off there Ball Detent. Well they must have put the bolt in wrong some how cause the stock bolt has a groove that allows the detent to escape when the bolt reaches it so it does'nt shear it off.

The stock I LOVE. weighs like 5 onces (BTW I am a big kid so umm what is light to me might be heavy to you) and is very easily taken off and on by removing a set screw.

The grip is comfy for my medium sized hands. The trigger is alittle far from the "Release Point" as I call it. But there are ways for you to move it back some. But the trigger has very little side to side play and is not hard at all to pull back very easy.

The dovetail..... I don't see why they say it is short. It goes down the spine of the gun so unless you don't have a sight that can clear the bolt then I would see why you call it short but to me it is perfect.

The paintjob is also good. But, I'm finding it hard to find parts that match the Dust Black paint. (I am OCD, I can't stand things not matching nor can I stand them dirty or staying the same for a long time)

Again when I put this gun through it's paces and some more paint through it I will update the review. I PROMISE! lol

*UPDATE*
I got a 1000R bag of paint today and went home ASAP to see what it could do and to add to this review.

The accuracy out of the box is awesome. I was 4 times as accurate as my tippy and my tippy even had an aftermarket barrel on it. The shot groupings were atleast an inch, inch1/2 apart from eachother from about 50 to 70 feet away.

I know you can't exactly walk with a mechanical like you can with an electronic but I (Well I think you call it this) fanned the gun stock against my shoulder and just started shooting as fast as I could to unload a full hopper on my dumbster. I was doing a good 5 to 15bps through the whole hopper. I noticed quite a kick to the gun but not much to hurt or throw the gun off the target your aiming at. But after I was done lol the barrel was frosty the 9once CO2 tank was sweating like mad and the dumpster had a nice bright orange circle on it :P about 5 inches straight across was how wide it is. But all in all I think this is the best gun I have owned.
Conclusion: Decently accurate, some kick, easy to hold with the tank and the stock on, and a great woodsball gun. I might even take it to the local speedball field and see how it stands up when I get an electronic frame.

9 out of 10, I wished it came with a Regulator not just a clip casing covering the hose but that's just me :P
