Review: Ok, first off I will say that this is an incredible gun! I got this gun about a month ago and when i took it out of the box i knew that this was one crazy gun! I took it outside fired a few times and I was completely blown away about how fast it shoots(the gun comes in B Ramp mode). I turned it to semi-auto mode shortly after that and took it to some paintball fields that weekend. This is a very accurate gun! I picked off quite a few people on a fairly big woodsball course at long range. The gun is comfortable to hold and is VERY light. At the time i was using a VL Revolution with an X-Board but I had to slow down my shots because the hopper couldn't keep up with the gun, so make sure you buy a Evo 2 or Evo 3. The gun is very easy to clean in case of ball breaks and surprisingly i found mine to be prelubed. It has a Delrin Bolt which is nice so you don't have to lube the gun every 2-5 days of play. But like all good things there are some flaws.....1: The trigger is EXTREMELY sensitive so it takes awhile to get used to it. 2. The feedneck is crap! Whenever u try to take the hopper off the feedneck screws off with it. 3: the o-rings on the mini kaner barrel it comes with are crap, its like they have been stretched out too much and they end up getting caught in the threads. 4: HPA ONLY, if you do use Co2 then i would suggest getting an anti-syphon kit to help keep to liquid Co2 from getting in the solenoid and freezing it(which could bust it). 5: If you use a HPA tank or a high capacity Co2 tank then you probably need to buy i drop forward, otherwise you will end up with the tank right up against your shoulder and it is bottom heavy.

EDIT: I have had this fine gun for over a year now and it has not disappointed me yet. I have played enough now to "walk the trigger," This gun has been extremely reliable and I haven't had to replace any pneumatic hoses or any of the gun parts. However, wear and tear is taking a toll on the bolt, i clean and relube my gun after each long day of playing and every time i take the bolt out, i find that it is beginning to get scratched up around the one end, not a problem yet, but a new bolt should be bought soon. I haven't had to re-time the gun yet either which is a plus. This gun is ACCURATE, very low spread rate from up to even 100 ft+. I will probably not update this again unless I buy a new gun down the road, so if you have any questions, message me. Oh, another con to this gun that really bothers me is there isn't much room for improvements in the "upgrade" category, the front LPR/HPR and ram/QEV are pretty much what you are stuck with, the QEV can be replaced with an Eclipse QEV for cheap though, and its a good upgrade. All in all....awesome gun, I don't regret buying it at all.
Conclusion: Overall this is an excellent gun and would be great for players who are fairly new to paintball all the way to the long time veterans who have been playing paintball for years. In my opinion this is one of the best "bangs" for your buck. This gun deserves a 9.5 since no gun is perfect but I will give it a 10 anyways.
