it's a good overall gun expecially for the price.
All my friends go the popular way and buy raptors and spyders.
A good gun for the money
I've only shot about 500 balls out of it so far but it has yet to break a ball and yes, it actually has a DECENT stock barrel.
My friend got a raptor and i shot his at a target we made(a large carboard box about 35 yards away) and paintballs flew every which way, then i shot mine and hit the box about %%50 of the time compared to the blue raptor's %%10.
I got it for less than my friend's guns and it is better than theirs. a great gun for the price
I had a little trouble getting this gun to work. there was a leak in seal between the bottomline hose and the handle but that was easily fixed. it also came with a bad o ring inside the gun and i had to open the gun to get it working. But i haven't had any problems with the gun since that. my brother got the same kind of gun and his ad no problems he just took it out of the box, screwed on the barrel, and it shot perfect.
All in all for novice players like me, ok i'll call myself a newbie, it's a good well-rounded gun for a good price. The gun is the best i've shot and i've shot many spyders and raptors, about 5-6 different ones. You can get this gun for about $100 on ebay and it is a awsome gun for the price. A great mid-priced gun.
