Review: this was the first marker i bought when i got to my home base of borden. It was cheap ($200 cad for the full starter package). I got the canadian tire special with the plastic pieces on the body. first thing i did was put a 14'' smart parts progressive on it, and this gun has served me well for the longest time.

when i was running this gun i was using co2, so i froze it a few times. the accuracy was decent at about 40 feet, but after that it was kind of a hope and pray, and it chopped once in a while, but the worst was when i got paint on the front of the bolt, and it started chopping every ball in the middle of the game. the other thing that i fopund was that a set of ball detents would only last a days play, and that got a little expensive.

on the other hand this is one of the simplest guns that i have ever used. the first time that i took it apart i didn;t even need the manual to do it, and cleaning was an absolute breeze.

my little brother is now loving this gun as much as i did as he begins his paintball experience.
Conclusion: All in all this is one of the best first markers for anybody. it's simple to use and easy to clean, and requires very little maitenence. and the price is great for somebody that isn't sure if they want to keep playing or not.
