Review: I got this gun off of eBay, $90, never used. The box is pretty cool, define + for the design. I managed to get my hands on an anniversary addition black, which, if I may say, looks F'in awesome. Another +. I took it outside immediately, put an Evo on it, and hooked up my Co2. I shot it as fast as I could, which with that horrid trigger, wasn't very fast and it seemed to work well. I was happy and put it back in its cozy box for about 2 weeks. Now, the bad stuff. I was getting ready to go paint balling, and decided to test the gun, just to make sure it was working right. I hooked up the Co2 and the immediately C02 started shooting out the bolt of the hookup. I took it into a PB shop and got it repaired, quick fix. I then decided to call the company and ask what I should do to prevent it. The number was disconnected. To say the least, that pissed me off. I went over to my computer and followed the link that said "Go to ACI's Website". NOTHING. It was parked. I decided to bag it, and went out for a nice game of paintball. It broke, again. This time I looked in the regulator and found almost every centimeter of it corroded. It now leaked through the barrel, and the bolt did not function. I was done. I threw it out and returned to my trusty Spyder Imagine.
Conclusion: Do not buy this marker. If it breaks you can't get a new one, and you can't call customer support. There is no replacement parts, as ACI had a private manufacturer. The gun is also a C02 hog. I'll give it a two for the box.0

Dispute:
he got it off ebay for 90 bucks not used (he says) which is bull because they cost 130 to 150 on ebay so the one he got was used. my aci assassin has never leaked and the bolt does not chop.
he got a either defective one or old one. either way his review is inaccurate.

also the only reason it would be corroded is because it was used prior to him, and its upkeep must have been poor....

the moisture in the air and two weeks isnt enough to bore through aluminium

you have to clean, dry, and oil your gun every time you use it

Yup, gun needs to work on NITRO.. Hates CO2... this is due because it has a high end REGULATOR...
about the corroded??? never heard of that... maybe your gun was really used before as people say in here...
regulator will just now Corrode like that, except it was used for many years.
