Review: I have been playing paintball for 10 years now, and I have been using this gun for the past 3 years. I have played in 110 degree heat, 35 degree cold, in the rain, and dropped it in the dirt. This gun never has broken, I have never chopped a ball in the gun.

+Problems: After 3 years of product use, I have never experienced a problem with this gun. Just keep it well maintained and it will take care of you on the field

+Maintenance: Very easy to disassemble/reassemble, it only takes about 5 minutes or less. It comes apart in 2 halves, and doesn't have that many moving parts.

+Chops: I have never chopped a ball in this gun. The only ball breaks that I have ever experienced was in the barrel. Yes, a ball can break in the barrel if the barrel is has a small bore and the paintball is large bore which can squeze the ball until it breaks. OR If the barrel has a really large bore and the ball is small bore which can cause the ball to bang into the inside of the barrel and depending on the strength of the ball it will break.

+Upgrades: There are many upgrades out there to turn your marker into whatever you want it to be. It can be turned into a really fast speedball marker, or a perfect sniper marker in woodsball.

+Everyone in woodsball seems to own one: This is great, because if you ever have a problem with the marker just ask almosy any of these guys and they can help.

+Accurate: With a 14 inch J&J Ceramic barrel, with correct paint/barrel match I have hit a target at 100ft. with a 9 inch grouping of shots. Stock barrel is to short and needs to be a priority upgrade.

+Reliable: I have never had a problem with reliability. Every game I have played this marker has worked perfectly.

+I am giving this gun a 10 due to it's price, performance, my experience with it's use, and availiablity of upgrades.
Conclusion: I would reccomend this product to anyone from beginner to pro, because this gun is cheap, easy to upgrade, and is a solid performer. You CAN"T go wrong with a Tippmann.
