Review: I was lucky enough to get two complete rapides with constant air off eBay. I sold the other one and the one I kept is one my favorites.

This is a fun rec gun. You have to keep your attention on reloading which isn't that difficult because you can see the balls dropping down the clear tubes as you fire. I keep the tubes in sterling submachine gun magazine pouches.

I am new to paintball and have many beat up and refurbished markers. Each one of them is very challenging and fun to play with.

During my first skirmish I had trouble with the double action trigger. I was not allowing the trigger to return all the way between shots. Now that I am used to the trigger it is quick enough for my needs.

I was quite surprised to land some shots around 50' sometimes on the first shot. (Or perhaps somebody else is aiming at the same person.)

I have the complete marker with the plastic stock and the front pistol grip.

Because I don't play paintball competitively I am not too worried about winning every game. We play 15 minute games so i get plenty of plaaying time. I have only played three occasions; usually in an auto scrapyard. There's lots of obstacles to move around and a lot of close quarter action.

I was lucky enough to get a complete rapide off eBay and its one my favorites.

This will also be fun to do a military mod in the future. Think stenmaster SD or perhaps splatsterling Mk 4.

Conclusion: I originally bought most of my PB markers just to modify and play with so used and cheap fits the bill. Also when I play we are all using older markers so the playing field is fairly equal. Sort of like everybody having a muzzleloader.
I like the military retro submachine gun looks compared to many modern Paintball guns.
