Review: I must say that I am very impressed with the performance of the 06 alien interceptor. Like I stated above, the regulator is garbage. The gun has considerable shootdown time and experiences creep if this issue is not addressed. It can be fixed by getting replacement parts from alien paintball ; however, you will most likely have to rebuild the stock regulator again and again and again.

I was having some issues with the eye. For some reason it was not seeing that I had a paintball in the breech. I determined this was because of my clear hopper. I think the sunlight may have been causing some issues. It shot great with gravity feed. No ball choppage for me.

I strongly recommend getting a CP or sidewinder regulator. The gun is simply amazing with an aftermarket regulator. It is speedy enough to keep up with anything on the market, but what was most impressive was the accuracy. I'm used to seeing balls fly a little bit to the right, or a little to the left, or maybe up and down from shot to shot. With other markers i've always experienced this sort of Circular margin of error for ball accuracy around any given target. WIth the alien interceptor, it is a vertical margin of error, which is amazing. It always shoots straight, every time. No more flying a little to the left, or a little to the right. Always a straight line. Most of the guys we shoot at are stranding upright anyways, so what does that mean? That means we will hit them more often if our balls are flying straight. I am serious this gun is amazingly accurate with a good bore sized paint to match even the stock barrel.
Conclusion: I was very impressed with the alien interceptor overall. I was disappointed that the stock regulator did not run like a champ right out of the box, but was overjoyed when I slapped on a new sidewinder regulator. This marker shoots like a dream. I think its probably the ugliest paintball marker i've ever owned, but i'm into performance. They are on sale for four-hundred and ninety-five dollars at the time of this review. At the price these bad boys sell for, thats a serious steal. The price of a new regulator was way worth it. These guns really sing. You will fall in love with it. I give it a 9 because of the regulator issues, but mostly because no gun is perfect. This one comes pretty darn close.
