Review: I got this gun a little under a year ago. It is pretty accurate with the "stock" barrel. One main problem was the fact that i was using a gravity fed VL 200 hopper, and the balls wern't going all the way through the feed neck into the chamber. i think its because of the angled part of the neck. i got a halo b and it solved that problem quickly. it is minorly heavy, but not too bad. i will soon be getting a M98 Cyclone Feeder (similar to the thing thats on the A-5) and putting that on, i heard it worked. get this gun if you play scenario or woodsball, but if you play speedball or such this isnt the gun for you. speedball players looking for a fast, durable gun that will never let them down in the same style as this, consider the Tippmann A-5.

EDIT
I read up, and found that to mount the 98 Cyclone feed, you must drill a hole in the gun. as i do not have the tools to do this, i am sticking with the Halo. to help with rate of fire, i will be getting the BT4 electro grip frame once i save up enough
Conclusion: woodsball, scenario 'ballers, this is a strong, affordable alterantive to the expensive Ariakons and such

speedballers- keep looking

casual players- consider it if you want realism and durability in a large yet affordable and durable package

i am giving it a 9 becuase its.... awesome

Where could you get the Cyclone feed mounted proffessionally so I don't screw it up drilling holes myself?

bt just released their own cyclone feed system powered by halo, no drilling or anything. I would recommend that before any other electric hopper because its made for bt-4's. its about 129.00 Can.
