Review: Ok well I wanted a woodball gun so I looked on the internet and choose this one. So I went to the store and took a look at it and my first impression was that it is really big and heavy. But i still wanted it so I bought it and took it home. After a day of holding it and playing with the gun it no longer seems heavy or big to me. I really wanted to test it in a forest across the street but i was afraid someone would mistake as a real gun, so i gassed it up and just dry fired it in my house. I really liked the feel of it becasue it was so well balanced and it just felt so good holding it. I then could'nt wait to play with it. So then i went to the local field with it yesterday and gassed it up and put paint in it. I then went to crony it and the crony read 296 then 303 then 305. So then I tried turning it down and the speed went up and i was very confused. I then went to the manual and read that it is counterclockwise to turn it up and clock wise to turn it down which is weird for me. I then got it under the speed limit and its was +/- 10, so I thought not bad for a stock gun w/ no reg and never been used. I then went on the field and played a game of rec ball and I noticed straight away that it is very accurate for a stock barrel and how easy it is to shoot. I was going through about a hopper of paint a game and I did'nt feel like I was that fast at all. When I walked off the field i got alot of comment about cool gun and so on. After about 300 shots I noticed my shots were'nt going as far as they were at first, so I looked at my tank and i had about 1500 psi left and I was suprised, but i guess it can be expected with a new gun. I then felt like playin some speedball and it was a blast, I was picking 2 or 3 people off every game, so I was very happy. I continued playing speedball for the rest of the night. The one game I had to lay some paint quickly and it was no problem I went through a hopper in about 20 seconds or so easy. It was like that the whole night with no problems. The next morning I cleaned all my gear and I noticed that there are alot of screws and they can get lost very easily. Once I get the money I am going to buy a e trigger for it and try to find a new valve and bolt fot it to improve efficency. I was going to buy a apex for it but i feel no need anymore.
Conclusion: Over all i am very happy with my purchase. I would highly reccomend this to anyone who wants to play rec ball or even speedball. The only thing I would recomend if you buy this gun is have big arms or a strap because after hours of playing it gets heavy. I would have bought the same gun if I had to I had to do it again.

I've held and seen this gun up close. It looks awesome, but I think its way too big/heavy/slow to use in a speedball enviroment. It works great for scenario, though.
