Review: Well, I got this gun for 375 off one of my buds who used to play for the Trauma. He got it from a guy who has a knack for coming up with rare markers, and both of them keep their markers in immaculate condition, so I was comfortable buying a used, older marker from them. I'd have to say that this is my best paintball investment yet.

Originally, I was looking to spend around 600-700 dollars on a new marker. I was split between the Karnivor, the NXT Shocker, and the E-tek. A couple weeks before I was ready to buy, my friend Pratt told me he had something I should look at first. I'd seen this marker online, after I used my friends ebladed Dye autococker which I loved. So when I saw the gun I was extremely happy. It's the All American version painted red, white, and blue, with newer Nexus internals and pnuematics. After I had tested it for a few games, I decided that the unique marker, coupled with the price was too good to pass up, so I bought it from him.

Spped: After 3 solid months of use, I have not been dissapointed. While not the fastest of the fast, this gun is pretty quick. I've been able to get about 12-14 bps consistently, which is plenty fast for me. Yes, some guns are faster, but most fields don't allow anything over 15bps anyways.

Accuracy: Yes, some people will say closed bolts are more accurate than open bolts, but I'm not going to get into that. The stock barrel it came with wasn't horrible, but it wasn't great either. It was too big, so of course balls would roll out if you tilted the gun down. I happened to have a Freak kit anyway, so this is easily fixed, and with the Freak kit, this has been on of the most accurate markers I've owned.

Ease of use: Turn on the eblade, turn on the on/off, turn on the hopper. Simple as that. I've owned many autocockers before, and I've taken classes on how to time them, but I've never actually had to do it. I haven't had a problem with this marker yet, and I don't see one in the future. A solid gun.

Efficiency: No, I haven't used the shot counter and shot until my tank is empty, but from general use this thing is damn efficient. The best I can tell you is that when I was actually paying attention, I used 6 pods and a hopper, and I still had 1,000 psi left on a 45/45 tank.
Conclusion: I got this gun used, so I only know the specifics of my marker, but from reading the other reviews, I gather this is one helluva gun if you can find one. I've seen them off and on on ebay, so you might get lucky. Of course you can't tell if the marker's been properly maintained on ebay, I'd say go for it with this one. If you can find someone you know who is selling one, definately jump on it.
