This gun looks great. I found the gun to be light compared to my Angel's and very solid feeling. I have the blue version. I hope they come out with an all black version. That's my only complaint. Some of us don't really want a silver metallic gun.
If you are looking for a great gun to bridge the gap between entry leverl and tournament grade, this is it. You will hold you own against any gun out there with the EPI. I've played paintball for 20 years and have played with the best. I reiterate, for the price, this is the best paintball gun you can buy today. It's not just an up'd ION. It's a redesign with components from the ION and Shocker and that's right where this gun plays. Between an ION a Shocker.
For the price, this is NOT the best gun you can buy.

you can get many of those timmys for the same price, and guess what? THEY ARE BETTER.
I have to admit that stating it's the BEST is a stretch. But the gun does work great and being the only gun on the market that has an adjustable fire chamber, that does give it an advantage. But yes there are better guns in the $400 market.
