Review: I have used this gun twice at the field, and only shot the crappy paint from sports-authority. I have shot approximately 4000 paintballs through this gun (I am trigger happy)

Strengths:

This is a great gun for a great price! I bought it off of e-bay for only $199!!!
This gun is super accurate, giving me a spread of only 6 inches at 50 feet. I did this using only sports-authority cheap paint. This is probably because it comes stock with a mini-kaner barrel kit. It is also light, but I have only used it with a 12 oz. CO2 so it will probably be heavy with nitro. This gun also fires super fast, with a super short trigger pull. To get a shorter pull, All you have to do is turn the screws farther in, and redo the loctite. Over the chrono I was shooting 14 bps in semi auto!! It also has this awesome ramping mode which is tournament legal, and makes it very easy to pull 18 bps (the cap on the board). This gun is also very quiet, just like every autococker. The battery seems reletively efficient, because i have shot alot of paint through the gun. This marker is extremely air efficient. I was able to shoot about 900 paintballs through it before refilling my CO2 (12 oz.). The Eyes are also a very nice feature. I have not chopped at all, after 4000 rounds of cheap paint. I was very confused if the gun had eyes or not, because the site description said nothing about eyes, but everyone who reviewed this gun put that as a strength. I will verify that it does have break beam eyes.
Weaknesses:

It is a little bit off balance without a drop forward, but that is not a big deal. The feedneck is the biggest downfall of this gun. All you can do is stick your hopper in, there is no way to keep it in. The battery is also hard to put in the handle, but that isn't a big deal. All you have to do is be careful with it. The DVD is a complete waste of time, so don't even bother watching it if you get this gun. The important pieces of maintenence are in the manual, and about 30 of the 35 minutes of the DVD were just about safety and using the mechanical trilogy. The last annoyance of this gun is that you can't de-cock the cocking rod without removing the grip frame. (If there is a way, please post it in comments so I know for the future)
Conclusion: This is a great gun for an amazing price, although most people buy them for much more (normally $300). I give it a 9 because of the feedneck and that it is impossible to decock without removing the grip frame.

Whether or not your gun decocks depends on how your LPR is tuned and what ram you're using. I didn't have this problem before but I now have an STO Ram and it does it every time.

My way around removing the ENTIRE grip frame is just undo the back screw on the frame until it decocks. Quicker than removing the whole frame and easier to access than the screw in the trigger guard.

Tis a pain but only other way around it is to get an ebladed cocker and with a couple upgrades this baby gives me all the performance I will ever need so I'll live with a minor nuisence.
