Recommended
Upgrades:
none are out yet, but the mag feed option, new hopper, and new barrel i suppose.
Strengths: Accurate, sick looking, easy to assemble/disassemble, strong polymer plastics. did i mention sick looking?
Weaknesses: Stock hopper.
Review: Well I bought this without even trying it out (it was an online purchase) and I had to sell my old gun first, so it was a make or break buy. The first time i used it was at my friend's open lot. i was less than satisfied with the replacement to my old gun (which was fantastic) but it was the only thing i had so i needed to get used to it. The gun had been firing at a fair, not good but fair, distance with fair accuracy. When I got home and took it apart for maintenance, turns out 2/3 o-rings were covered in paint from a break. It had been working at the level of a JT Orion due to OE (yes i realize i should have checked it while I was playing). The next time I used the gun, I made sure to constantly stay on top of its performance, and by god what a gun! If you can imagine, I was up on a fire base (approx. 10 feet up) playing attack and defend and i was defending. I fired one shot at a group of about ten people a good 70 yards away, and it made it, more importantly it hit one of them. I was shocked because even my old gun had trouble doing that. I went through about 5 hoppers before the 1st ball break which took 2 minutes to fix at the picnic table. Now, the issue with he stock hopper is the fact that it is set to the side, making it cumbersome. All I did was buy an elbow and put my Java hopper onto it. It is definitely a gun i recommend buying. ROF seems about 6-7 bps steady, and burst at what ever speed you feel like. People seem to have an issue with he plastic stuff, well its very durable plastic, doesn't rust as a tippmann would (nothing against them, mentioning that because my old tippmann had rust points). Another very unique aspect is the engine block, when the upgrades come out, switching it to full auto capabilities or mag feed or what ever black point thinks of will be as easy as switching out block engines...almost like legos....
Conclusion: i recommend it to any woodsballer, seems to have a break in period where performance will be a little off (course mine's was also due in part to OE). paintballgi.com offers very good prices for it. (350 with a red dot scope free)
