Review: Storys:
When I first saw the BT4 Banshee at my local paintball shop, I fell in love. The looks of the Banshee attracted me because it's a Mil-Sim gun. I purchased the Banshee back in August for about $320. What a Bargin... and a good buy, too!

I used the Banshee back in September, however, I did not use my CO2 tank. I rented a nitrogen tank (this was when I did not have the Red Dot). When I had to attack a small fort, I was prone on the ground. In the fort window about 12" by 12", one guy's face was visible. I was about 90 feet to 100 feet away. So, I eyeballed the target and pulled the trigger. Believe it or not, one shot, one kill! I nailed him right in the lens!

I used it at a different place in New Jersey (still without the Red Dot). I used the CO2 tank and nailed six guys that day.

A different time, I used at the same place (this time with the Red Dot). I was defending the Mega Fortress. My neighbor got shot out. We were allowed to leave the fort, but I didn't leave. I was too hot outside to move. So, I bunkered down benind these big water jugs or something. The Red Dot was on and I was looking from left to right to see if anyone snuck up behind me. Next, this speedballer wearing blue was in front of me against the wooden wall and the giant blueberry gets shot out. Now, I was extra precautious. All alone, no one around to give me cover fire when needed and looking through the Red Dot and beyond the Dot simultaneously. About ten seconds left in the game, I saw someone behind the plank wall in front of me. I saw him through the cracks. The hostile peaked his head at the end of the wall. When he peeked his head out, I pulled the Banshee's trigger four times on him and two or three shots hit him in the face. I definatly know that one round splattered on his face, around the nose to be exact. And the funny part was that I was using green paint and it looked like you know what when I saw him in the staging area taking his mask off.

The same day, I was attacking the town. My team pushed up nice, except the fact we couldn't get the last six or seven guys. Behind two buildings, there were the Hostiles facing their attention to the right but not the front. I snuck up on their right flank. I raised the barrel, and poured lead them. I definetly "killed" two or three hostiles. Then I ran like the wind.

Performance:
The BT4 Banshee shoots very smooth. The Banshee does not kick when fired hence it is so heavy. The internals are the same exact thing as a Tippmann 98 Custom and Custom Pro. The M16 stock is nice. The M16 stock may not be adjustable, but there is a storage compartment in the stock; the door is located in the butt. The rear sight is adjustable, but that's just for show. Get a Red Dot! The M-16 Gas Expansion chamber is made out of solid steel. Sure it's heavy, but that helps the gas expand and will allow you to get extra shots out. The AK-47 barrel makes the gun intimidating. With its looks and accuracy, this will make you the most feared on the battlefield. By the way, the Banshee's AK-47 barrel has Tippmann A-5 threads. The Banshee is a huge attracter for paintballers. People always ask me "What's that gun?" I tell them the BT4 Banshee. The people love the looks of the gun, almost every time I go paintballing.

Conclusion: If you want to be feared on the battlefield, have the accuracy, and have an attractive gun, the Banshee is a must buy!
