Review: I don't know about anyone else, but this marker reminds me of a Tippman 98 that's easier to disassemble. I had quite a fight tying to clean it the first time it chopped a ball (which is not very often, mind you). Once you get used to it though, it's fairly simple.
I was actually very impressed with the accuracy the first time I used it. 11 of 12 shots hit the target. The problem I see here is that the velocity isn't very sensitive; you're kind of stuck with what you have unless you modify the spring and other internals.
I don't have any mods on mine, but I am currently rather irritated by the way this gun handles CO2. It has the vertical-air set-up, and I think that may have something to do with why it shuts down to a pump when you have 25% of a tank left. This may be an easy fix, but it's still annoying. I like the way this set-up feels though, so I just put up with it. Do what you like.
I will warn you; This is not a fast marker. Take your time with your shots, or you will risk chopping. It makes a nice woodsball marker, and a great one to lend out to friends for thier first time out, but you might like a Tippman better for that... or you could not (I personally don't).
Conclusion: A great little marker. If you can find one cheap I would recommend it as a back-up, a loaner, or just something to play with for the fun of it.
