Review: So i just got this gun about a week ago, and have had little problems so far, however not anymore yet. Ill explain.

Speed: This thing is deffinetely one of the fastest guns STOCK. Once i got my problems fixed [scroll down] it ripped on every mode. I hit 27bps completely stock on ramping.

Accuracy: Stock barrel is okay, it was ball-on-ball for about the forst 20 shots of every hopper. No biggie.

Weight: My tanks pretty heavy imo, but this gun with everything on including paint is so evenly balanced its hard to know its there. <--- Something you would expect from something weighing little over a pound.

Problems: When i took it out of the box and gassed it up, it leaked out the bottom of the reg, i tweaked the velocity, and that was fine. Then the longest running and most aggrevating problem: I start shooting, and my pressure just goes down as i shoot, after like 10 bps, all the balls would just fall out of the barrel, it was horrible. I brought it to my shop, they brought it out back, and it ripped, i brought it home and the same problem occured, so i brought it back, they set the dwell to the only thing i didnt, 40, and now it rips.

Maitenence: Super easy, even with the stock bolt guide. Shove an allen wrench it the back, twist on the bolt guide, pop out the bolt and firing can, lube it, and pop it back in. I lube after every use.

Efficiency: Terrible, absolutely terrible, nothing to cry about though if your field fills for free all day like mine [included in the entrance fee]. ill get like 4/5 hoppers out of a tank.
Get a hybrid bolt guide, they help greater than any bolt kit will.

The only thing i dont like is the ASA, im going to get a new one because its chewing up my tank, and my tank is installed correctly.
Conclusion: All in all this gun is an amazing buy and will deffinetely keep up with every other gun out there. SP really made a name for themselves with this gun. This gun rocks.

A HE bolt, Evolve kit, or NDZ bolt kit will improve efficiency more than just a bolt guide

Im aware, bolt guides are a good idea also.

If your getting a shocker you need a new bolt or your have to refill every couple of games
but great gun

'dont believe so. sorry =[

and im going to get a new bolt, even though i dont really need one, because my field fills for free so it doesnt really matter.
