Review: I have had very few problems with this gun. It has always been reliable for the most part.One thing that came to be a problem was that my hopper being a force feed hopper would double feed becuase of the weak o-ring detent. I would have chops,barrel breaks, and jams like crazy. Though this problem is easily fixed by cutting a sliver of an eraser or macro line and putting it inside of the o-ring to renforce it. This works wonders. Also get a new regulator the stock one has crappy consistency. I would get like + or - up to 50 fps sometimes. CP shorty solved that. Accuracy isnt the best but is decent with the stock barrel. There is alot of stray balls with the barrel. A Stiffi fixed that easily.The grips are not very comfortable and I recomend any Hybrid grips. to some people the gun doesnt appeal to them from the lack of it having eyes. Well the BKO doesnt need them with a good fast hopper.

Now the good stuff. The gun looks great stock. Even the stock feedneck is low rise and looks and works good. The gun is fast with a good shooter and hopper. It has good internals and a decent running pressure of about 220 -250psi (and even lower with a vapor valve)at around 285 fps. The bolt is a high quality delrin plastic. Many talk about blowback problems but i have never experienced any with my stock bolt, but if they occur just buy a vapor bolt(it will also increase air efficiency). The gun is easyily field strippable which is convienent for those few warped balls that end up in your gun. The gun is also small which helps you tuck in to those tight spaces. The gun is CHEAP and can compete with high end guns.

Buy one and you will still have money to buy the few upgrades you need

Conclusion: The gun is great.....
