Review: Well after fixing this beaut I can finally give an honest review on this gun. not in the mood to explain my complaining about my own stupidity on how i fixed it so ill get to the case.

PROS

Compact
yes this was both a pro and con for several reasons. its good because its easy to maneauver and not bulky or anything, but its bad because you cant wrap your fingers around the expansion chamber since its so close to the trigger frame. and for those of you that complain about the trigger frame, all i can say is that its not a 2 finger frame on purpose, they made it a 1.5 frame so 1 finger can shoot it, don't try to fit 2.

Affordable
yes these guns are the cheapest WGP cockers on the market and, you've already heard this a million times, shoot just like the higher end cockers while keeping money in da bank.

Looks
as long as you dont have the older version of this, you should see a bright, glossy black and red finish that will catch someones eye (unless they got a better cocker themselves hehe) but you can deffinetly not call it ugly

Clamp Feednecks
when the spyder users tossed their elbows and discovered fire!!!!! ehh not really but its a nice touch for ex-spider users like me (amen)

CONS

Adjusting velocity and Cleaning
yes the velocity is easy i must say but just the fact you gotta take apart the rod and wedge in an allen wrench every turn avoiding the tail and etc. is a pain, not the best if ur in a hurry. Cleaning is another story, just keep all the parts on a towel or something

Ball detent
sigh why did they have to purposely make a flaw in the gun by giving it only 1 BALL DETENT!? that simply means that if you tilt the gun down pointed to the ground, chances are your ball will fall out the barrel like that, so if you wanted to snap shot or something your first shot is nothing but air

Barrel
this almost led me to hate the gun and im glad i gave it another change by investing in a new barrel. Theres nothing wrong with stock barrel accuracy wise, its the bore size, ITS FRICKIN HUGE so yes unless you have humongous paint then get a .689 bore or somtin

Short Strocking
Ehhh... my least favorite. Many of you already know what this is so i won't explain, but this always becomes a pain at the most perfect moments. If ur opponent is movin up and you wanna pop him nonstop theres that chance you dont pull the trigger all the way and BOOM! all down hill from there... it stops, then chops a ball, then the barrel is messed up and you gotta hope you have a squeegie on you or else its a pain to shoot straight


~EDIT~

After having this marker now for about half a year now, i am pleased to say that this gun has still been shooting great for me without a single problem. Once I got used to the short stroking issue this thing has been treating me nicely. This is one of those 'ol yeller' kind of guns and no matter what gun i use on the field, having it be nice, uped spyder, PM's or DM's when i switch back to this gun, im taking names twice as fast. i dont know how to explain this but i wish it could be tournament ready if i uped it with an e2 but i know it'd need a lot more aftermarket parts to be considered tournament grade... all in all the best mechanical marker i've laid hands on and plan on never selling it since it's been treating me so nicely. I bump it up to a 9 for its flawless performance at such a nice price
Conclusion: well dats all folks, hope this helped. I also got this gun for 105 bucks with the gun, egg hopper and a nitro tank and was the best 100 bucks ill ever spend. i'll give it an 8 for that short-strockin pain in the @$$ problem and compact body... very great gun. ignore others who say this is a newb gun and, not trying to piss em off or degrade them, they are jealous they paid 5 times as much for their guns when you got somthing that can shoot just the same as theirs
