Review: I went and bought this marker after reading many reviews for other markers on this site. This is a great marker for noobs and veterens alike. Right out of the box, this marker is intimidateing, getting many questions and instant 'friends' whenever I pull it out. To begin with, it is a little but pricey, but has upgrades on the Combat that would cost much more to buy after the fact. This is the best bang for your buck if you are going into the MilSim market. With such upgrades as the Rip Clip and the E Grip the Assault can outshoot any Tippmann. I highly recommend taking the marker out for 100 shots or so before doing any modifying so if your modifactions change anything you know right away. After that, feel free to modify in any way. After my first 100 shots, I noticed a few loose screws and other parts. Be shure to check the marker over for loose screws every time you take it out, because repeated use loosens the screws. BECOME ITIMATE WITH YOUR MARKER! cannot stress enough that you must take it apart and put it back together until you can do it in less then mins. It is quite heavy and bulky with the CO2 on it, and it is also a gashog. I suggest two 20oz CO2 tanks and a remote coil ASAP after purchase. Another alternative would be the expansion chamber. This will reduce CO2 usage and FPS spikes. Without the E-Grip trigger, the Assault is a semi-auto, so off the bat, only a gravity feed is needed. Later along you will need the Rip Clip. It is a reloader made for the BT-4 by BT. It is very similar to the cyclone on the A5, but in the rare instance that you chop a ball all it takes is 2 thumbscrews and you can clean your marker. I will update this as I use my marker more and upgrade it.
Conclusion: Easily one of the best base MILSIM markers to upgrade. Will not do well as a speedball marker. Trust me, I saw a guy try and he got owned.
