Review: I'm running this gun pretty much stock....and it's sweet. i'm not a competition player but i get out pretty much every weekend to play. I've gone through thousands (cases) of paintballs, and i've NEVER BROKEN A SINGLE BALL. i use pretty cheap paint....almost the cheapest, and i've never broken a ball. Even with the cheap paint, the gun is pretty accurate, and i generally kill more than i get killed. I play bushball mostly (i play against tippmann's done right up), and while the stock sf (except the barrel) can't keep up with the distance of those guns (flatlines!), i have no problems in fire fights. While i wouldn't recommend this gun for bushball (i'm always worried about the external hoses etc....although i've had no problems yet), it has done me no wrong and has crowned me the victor in many battles.
Another positive about this gun is it's ability to use co2. I am switching over to hpa, but while using co2, i've really had no problems. This is a plus for me because i can't afford 2 hpa tanks, so i can always carry back up gas. One worry about using co2 is the amount of sweat produced. One day my gun was literally dripping from condensation (it was really hot)....which freaked me out....but didn't notice any problems.
I also really like the trigger (i think it's really light).
The negatives about this gun are pretty minor in my opinion. first, the feed neck does not work well with my egg3. My hopper moves around if my gun is tilted sideways, but it hasn't fallen out. This could be remedied with a clamping feed neck. Problem solved.
The next problem is its weight. It feels pretty heavy. I hope my dropforward will help this problem, or i could just stop being a wuss.
All in all, i love my gun. with a few minor upgrades (even without them) the competition sf brings the painT!
Conclusion: it NEVER BREAKS BALLS, it's accurate (i have no problem hitting people bunkering down), it's fast. this gun brings the painT.

Hey man, you said your feedneck was too loose for the Egg, well I sugest a Check-it clamping feedneck, I got one for my Pro SF and I absolutly love it.

thanks a lot for the advice on the feed neck. i've been working on getting one, but i've had problems. anyways, i hopefully it'll work out.
