Review: I got this gun as my first woods ball gun and loved it and i still do. One thing that was funky with it was when i got it out of the box i took it out to shoot it first thing. and balls just started rolling out the barrel so i took it apart and found that the ball detent was missing! Hmmm ya, strait out of the box! Luckily it comes with a tool/replacement kit. It contians allen wrenchs, and spare parts. Any how i fixed that and it shoots perfectly now. As i mentioned above i have not purchased any after-market parts due to financial problems. But i am soon to get a 21" sniper barrel and a bi-pod. The stockbarrel is moderately accurate. The ruggedness of this gun is amazing! The first time i went with it i tripped and sort of drop/throwed it on the ground and not a scratch on the thing.

And when kingman says any conditions they mean it!! I went balling in the snow with it and go it all over it along with some water but still perfect functionality. The trigger is kinda hard to walk on but no big deal for a sniper. The rails suck as i said they are to small to mount anything directly on but a raised sight rail would work well i think. perfect for mil-sim and woods ball, but in speed ball w/out the stock its open ended not really a plus. I compared this to my friend's A-5 and thought it performed alot better plus its not as expensive (compare 140$ to 250$) o and did i mention he had a flat line barrel on his A-5! But then i never really liked tippys so i might be kinda bias there?

Runs great on a 20 ounce and a vl Quantum (20$) cheap. Im hopping to buy a MR2 or 3 just because of the high performance of this marker.

one more thing the elbow to the hopper is cheap plastic
Conclusion: If you are a begin-er or intermediate player that doesn't want to spend a fortune on a woods-ball gun this is for you. In my opinion this gun is under priced at 130$-140$
GET IT! Nine because of the hard trigger the weight and the @#$%y rails.
