After wanting this gun forever, I finally got it, so here it goes.
I got it second hand, so it had the harness and the remote line, which is great cause I could see that without a remote line for the air it would just be awkward, and I don't think it would work at all well. (I noticed that the trigger guard is scraped from someone screwing an air tank it and the fill nipple caught it)
For an 8 inch barrel (stock) the accuracy is awesome, it has a 3-4 inch spread and 40+ feet, and thats with firing from a standing position and loading paint by hand, as my brother had my hopper. It will take some getting used to for aiming, the barrel seems to be way off, but take a few shots and you'll figure out where to aim etc. As for hopper related a gravity feed is all you'll need and I love how it has an adjustable feed neck stock. Distance is nothing spectacular but it seems to pretty good, and the balls seem accurate at a long distance. As far as weight go, it is a little heavy, but that just means you can feel it, unlike some guns where you could forget you're carrying them sometimes. Its a pretty solid set up too, the closed bolt means sand and such are less of a problem then say the 98 Custom. Now I wouldn't shove it in the dirt, but I wouldn't do that to any gun. The length also takes some getting used too (going around corners etc) but once you are comfortable with it you'll love this gun.
All in all I'd say its a pretty sweet gun, once you get a remote line and a harness its a damn good bushball gun

I actually put a bottom line on mine so that the remote line is a little closer. It feels so much better with a bottom line on it I think. You're using gravity feed? You should get a Ricochete 2KX, it works so much better than a standard hopper since you can shoot with the hopper tilted inward towards the bunker and not get any dry fires from it. I have a 3 point sling as well but to me it gets in the way when i'm running through the woods so i tighten it along the gun and use it when i get off the field. Is the BT-16 popular in your area? Over here it's only my brother and I who have one.
