Review: Pros:
~Durability: This gun is by far the most durable I have ever used. It can take a harsh beating and still work fine. It doesn't scratch as easy as other guns and I guess you can say it has a nice paint job. (rating 9.5)

~Price: It is relativity cheap and goes for I believe $140-$150 new. (rating 8.5)

~Maintenance: Is very easy to care for and use. Disassembling is quick and the cleaning is very easy. I also like the feature of how the feedneck just pops off. (rating 9)

~Velocity: Easy to adjust with Allen wrench however the velocity does tend to spike, especially with CO2. (rating 8)

~Instructions: Clear and tell you almost everything you need to know to use the gun. Only wish they gave you a better diagram. (rating 8)

Cons:
~Weight: The gun is heavier than most other markers. (rating 5.5)

~Speed: With the stock trigger you will be lucky to pull off 8bps since it is so hard to pull and I don't believe that with the stock trigger you will be able to do 15bps, because the trigger is so hard to pull! (rating 6)

Average rating: 7.79 = 8 rounded
Conclusion: If you are into woods-ball I would recommend this gun because of all the pros it has (see above) but don't get it if speed-ball is more your type. Some other things you might want to look into are electronic guns such as: promaster, diablo mongoose's, wrath ltd and guns such as those. But this gun is great for a starter and is very reliable for a 1st gun.
Also please be sure to rate this helpful or not helpful.

dude shut up, your new here and besides I've played more than just 6 months, a year when its on Christmas but who cares just don't even say anything. Go to a different website or don't be stupid because I have an OPINION ABOUT SOMETHING! Notice how reviews are opinions about what you THINK about the product. So don't tell me to do something when you are stupid and don't even know what the purpose of that thing is. Oh yeah I never said anything about how I expect no low end mechanical guns will shoot like tourney guns so be sure to read everything before you try to think your all cool by talking trash and spell "mechanical" right

Edit: After checking your review on the Custom Pro it seems you did the same thing, You agreed that it isn't a tourney gun and you listed other guns like the electra and stuff that you should get. So please next time don't make fun of someone when you will get embarrassed and especially when you write a review that says the same thing as the other guy. Thanks

I just get really fed up with all the noob that by a gun and then think they are so macho.
I am not calling you a noob. You have not played paintball for long but you seem very knowledgeable and you seem to know alot more then i did in my first 6 month.

Don't you hate when some noob buy a gun (like a tippmann) that doesn't shoot like the guns pros use so they call it crap and say it is a piece of trash.

is the mongoose a nice gun?
i want to get a gun that is a good speedball gun.

It annoys me off when noobs say a gun is a good intermidiate gun. how would they know??????

yeah i know the feeling. I just learned from my mistakes here after being made fun of so since like the first month I have learned a lot. Anyways the mongoose is ok, if you want an intermididiate gun go for the promaster, an ion, dp fusion, or something like that. Not saying the mongoos isn't good just is not as good as those for the price.
