I was lucky enough to get two complete rapides with constant air. I have 3 sets of 10 round tubes each double taped sten gun style. I don't have the original magazine so I have six 10 round tubes taped together in groups of two quick change style. I keep 3 double tubes in sterling submachine gun magazine pouches (60 shots).
Constant air adapter, stock, forword grip, tactical sling, hopper adapter, red dot sight.
Durable, somewhat accurate, lightweight, simple to operate, trouble free
Range, Double Action trigger, accuracy.
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.

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