This gun amazed me the first time I played with mine. Its very accurate and it shoots darts. Some people say it is a little loud but who cares when you are on the field with 10 guys in an x-ball match...IT DOESNT MATTER! I used to own a PM7 and I thought that it was light, its crazy how much this gun weighs...practically nothing. I know $1200 is a good bit of cash but I think this gun is worth every penny of it.
