Review: Okay first off, i didnt do my research on this gun before i got it...i was so happy to be getting A M-4 PAINTBALL GUN YAYYYYY!!!!!!!!.....WRONG... this gun is VERY cool looking, but thats about it. I got the gun in the mail and about jumped thru my roof with excitment. I took it out paintballing the next weekend and was met by mixed emotions by the people at the PB park. most were amazed by the cool looks of the gun, many were sceptical about its performace. when i chrono'd the gun was EXTREMELY inconsistant +- 50 pershot.....onnce i got that fixed up, i finally just gave up and lowered the speed tto like 100fps....once i got out into the field, first off, the remote line i used was a pain in the butt because it was to tense, but i got into the game... the first thing i noticed was that this gun is very long, too long to really take effective cover behind anything without unshouldering ur gun and putting it akwardly aside....speedball? FORGET IT!, coming out from behind cover with this gun is too hard to be an affective player...ACCURACY? pffff what accuracy? if u can sneak within 10-20ft of ur opponent maybe you'll score a hit maybe not but u can scare them to death with the terrible noise the gun makes..
Conclusion: i bought this gun without thinking i t thru and have spent much time regretting it DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE

first off i would like to say that eny paintball marker is going to be inconsistent at the crono station, unless you are shooting a high end gun you will always jump up or down +10-10 balls per feet , i know that it can be a little frustrating at first but give it time and you will find the sweet spot, when you do leave the gun set there, i own a wg65fx and would not trade it in for enything, no prob at the crono, Second of all you dont buy a full millsim gat to play speedball, think about it, you could buy a tippman 98c or a5 and both with e grip or was board and still play speedball and woodsball in the same day! so i would watch what gun you buy

I also dispute this. read the 100's of reviews that this gun has had. Amzing piecec of kit. I was gonna right pretty much what the previous person written. Plus, I had one or two problems first off, because this gun is one that you need to setup, you will find its sweet spot, and i havent had a problem now with it for 13 months. 10/10

First off i have used many of these guns and it is very easy to change the speed on them and they are not near as inconsistent as 50+-. Also on all the Armotech and Ariakon paintball guns all of them are accurate. I also know they are accurate because when i got mine i took it outside and standing about 50-60 yard plus i hit a telephone poll in my yard in about a 12"by 12" area. Another thing is you should of tested it and got everything working the day you received the gun that way you would of know any problems that it might of had u should just buy a brand new gun put it in the corner of your room and then just play without even testing it

What are you, a 9 year old?

Why would you even think about taking this gun onto a Speedball field? This is a Milsim WOODSBALL gun. Giving it a low rating on that is stupid.

Consitency, first off have you even broken the marker in yet? You should atleast fire 500 or so rounds through it before taking it to a field. Also weather could have a played a role for your Co2. Giving it a low rating on that is stupid.

Accuracy. Maybe you just suck and can't aim? It very well could have been the Paint > Bore match.

Again learn to spell, come back when you've broken the marker in, and give it a fair review.
