Heavy, Grip(see review), Ramp modes are useless, Loud,
first thing i noticed when i got it is that it in much heavier than the Ion and other guns. it dose not come with a wrench to open the grip were the battery goes.with a battery in the grip cover will not close all the way leaving a small gap. (were paint got all over the circuit board first round of play) went out to put some paint thought it but I had to sand down my loader to get it to fit in the feed neck. i got it gassed up and full of paint (diablo scorch). the marker came pre-set to the B ramp mode (18BPS) i started shooting and everything seamed good until the 4th ball when ramp kicked in. it turned in to a blender chopped every ball and gummed it up pretty good. it was easy to clean just turn it upside down pull out the bolt and put a squeegee through it.
next day at the field i put in on the chrono and was shocked at a +/-50 fps consistency. not what i would expect from WGP. tested with several types of paint same results. over the day i put about 4000 balls through it. the consistency improved to +/-40fps. needless to say the regulator will be the first thing i change if i keep the marker. even on semi auto mode this thing chopes paint. i was bunkered several times with a speed mop in the barrel. the accuracy of the marker is not much better than any other marker i have used and with it chopping all the time its worse.
Maybe i got a lemon but from my experience with this marker i would not recommend it to anyone.

I must say I'd never buy an autococker after looking round at all the reviews, I have NO IDEA how they became so popular to once rule the land, I read about less problems with cheap o 150 dollar guns, what exactly is everyone paying for here.
Your experience is not unique, infact this seems to be the norm with these products.
Yeah yeah people say if you know how to upkeep it they run fine, however I don't see why you'd buy a gun that breaks down all the time and must be babied over much more reliable products that still deliver consistent performance. there are a hell of a lot of choices out there these days.
well, first off...your using a ricochet apache....thats where the ball breakage comes in...ricochets dont have eyes..they have what they call "bend sensor technology" which doesnt work at all...the apache may be rated as 15-19 bps, but the bend sensor slows it down...i have this gun with a eggy 3...works flawlessly....

Exactly. Can't say I think that is a good thing, but my Trilogy Pro SF chopped like a lumberjack on crack until I hooked up a force fed loader (VLocity JR). I've always thought that WGP should have mentioned / realized that!
older cockers are better quality than the trilog's and eblades have much better eye logic. The old wgp regs were exceptionally consistent. That is why cockers were popular. especially when you compare them to other older guns.
