Review: Best. Gun. Ever.

Those 3 words can sum up everything I am about to tell you about this gun. I used to own a Tippmann A-5A2 upp'd to the max. I had a Hammerhead Barrek Kit, Sights, E-Grip, etc. You name it I bought it. I used to think my A-5A2 was an accurate gun. How wrong I was.

I was lucky enough to get my Tac One off the Automags forum for a relatively "cheap" price. When it arrived I went to my friend's house so we could sight our guns in. His gun is nearly identical to my old one (HH Kit, Egrip, etc), so this day was almost a side-by-side comparison of my old gun vs. my new gun.

Now remember that at this point my Tac One was totally stock. At ~70ft I was dropping balls on top of each other or 1-2 inches off the bullseye. My friend (using the A-5) couldn't even come close to the grouping I was getting. He halved the distance to the target. Still not even close. He climbed up into his truck bed and brought out a bipod, closer but still not even comparable to the Tac One. He has dropped more into his A-5 upgrading it than I spent on the stock Tac One, and the comparion wasn't even close!

On a small downside, tuning the Level 10 bolt can be a little complicated or time consuming for someone who has never used / seen a AGD gun before. It took me just under 2 hours to Read, Research, and Tune the Level 10 to near perfection. Also the bolt 's carrier might need to be changed for different weather situations (not like rain or sunshine, but winter to summer play), but this only takes ~5 minutes to do, no big deal. After you get the bolt tuned, be prepared to have everyone you play against be mad at you , bc not only is it mad consistant and accurrate, but it is also very quiet.
Conclusion: So if you are reading this wondering: "Is the Tac One (or other AGD gun) really as good / better than my - X Brand Marker -?" Allow me to put your mind to rest. Yes. Yes it is. Buy one. You will be VERY happy. These are wonderful markers. I am more than willing to answer any questions you may have about this product. AGD has earned yet another die hard fan, I will never be without a Mag ever again.

As far as efficiency goes I would rate it a hair lower than the A-5 for this reason: I had an adjustable tank with my A-5 and with a little tuning I could run the A-5 around 700 psi or so, but the Tac One recommends around the 800-850 range for best performance, higher if you wanna rip out some paint. But as far as a real comparable difference, especially with a fixed pressure tank, I would say that it is nearly identical.
