Review: Wow, this is one great marker. I ordered it online for only $120 from actionvillage.com (awesome deal). I took this gun out at my friends homemade field and what can I say, it kicked viewloader ass, (a slingshot could kick viewloader ass hah). It was extremely accurate, and pretty quick for a mechanical gun. It chopped one ball, and I was using pretty cheap paint (Zap from Walmart, DO NOT BUY IT!) If you do want to get an agitated loader for this marker I would say get a Tippmann. This gun is also very air efficient. I got about 850 shots from my 16oz. tank. It has awesome looks and you can't even count how many upgrades there are for cockers, including the Eblade II if you wanna make the switch between high end mechanical to high end electronic. I dont like the stock grips on this marker at all though, doesn't really matter it's a quick fix. For $20 just get the SmartParts Pro Touch grips. Another thing I didn't like was the compact frame, for $100 I recommend the full hinge frame. I bought this gun because at the time, I was really into woodsball, and this was the best gun I could find in my price range.
Conclusion: This is a great woodsball gun if you aren't looking for a scenario type marker. I recommend it only to intermediate woodsball players, unless you can afford an Eblade. I don't need one cause i have an ION, buy that marker if you want an electronic.

All points are comparing to other high end mechanical markers
Style: 9
