Review: This marker kicks some serious butt! I have yet to chop a single ball with it! Even after a year of sitting in bad conditons; the ball detend siezed and the valve was screwing up, and still not a chop! vertical feed makes for a quick but simple rate of fire! comparing to what all I've used, next to the Tippmanns, this is my favorite! The action is solid, the report is confident (and scary if you're out of rounds)

Angels and autocockers may have the speed, but unless you're doing suppressive fire, you really don't need anything more than this! It is, in my oppinion, the best marker (next to the *A-5* that I've seen for Commander and Sabre positions!

VERY consistant velocity and accuracy with compressed air and my barrell! at the chrono, i had them all within 10fps of eachother for shooting about 25 rounds! I could also hit the EXACT same spot on a 2" board from 45yards 8/10 times with one of the other two 1/2"up and the other 1" left all from an unbraced standing position in a crosswind!!

The only downside I found was that after a year of sitting, the ball detend jammed and the valve was starting to go. Those were a fairly quick fix for Les though!!
Conclusion: I would recommend this marker to anyone who wants a killer marker, isn't afraid of carrying a little extra weight, and is okay with a high-gloss black finish on the marker with no sights or rails!
I am deffinetly keeping this marker as my main until i get myself a Tippmann *A-5*
