Review: I purchased this marker as a backup. It was a floor model at my local paintball store. I paid very little for it and didn't expect much.

My primary marker went out of commission during the middle of a scenario game this weekend. I pulled out the BT-16, expecting the rest of my day to be less than optimal.

I'd installed a regulator to the marker, but it was originally intended for a low pressure gun, and I wasn't sure how it would perform. With some fiddling, the marker chronoed in at a consistent 272-275. I hadn't expected that. I was using HPA.

The gun performed well. I was using an Egg2 and I put a little under 1000 balls through it without a single chop. I had some double feeds, but it just shot out two balls instead of one. The stock barrel yielded acceptable accuracy. I'd have weird corkscrewing shots every once in a while, but nothing upsetting.

It's a single-trigger mechanical marker, so it doesn't shoot rapidly. I'm not going to make an estimate on how many BPS I was getting, but I can say it wasn't a lot.

The marker feels good in your hands. It's sturdy, with no give in the frame or body. The ASA jiggles slightly, but doesn't affect performance. The trigger pull is solid without being tiresome. There is plenty of kick. That may not be the best for tourny play, but it makes the gun tremendous fun to shoot.

All in all, I was ridiculously impressed by this unassuming marker. I hadn't expected much, but $/performance it's one of the best paintball purchases I've made.
Conclusion: Fun, reliable marker for woodsball.
