Delta .68 better product until seals start to fail.
Many other pistols-better as so far as I know
Tac-8- purchased one of the first releases which had problems, supposedly they work better now.
Marker Setup: ULE Automag... custom built with rare RPG parts. Reliable. accurate. pefect.
Recommended
Upgrades:
Another marker...
If it works, a Light would be awesome for scenario players during night game.
Strengths: It is pretty much a P99, size is awesome, it feels strong and secure.
Weaknesses: Cheap parts
requires only .43 cal paintballs
Review: Ok the people who above who said you could not adjust velocity are incorrect, where the trigger is there is a an adjustment inside.
For myself however, I never had a chance to do much more then test fire a few times.
I purchased this pistol fired a couple mags through it, then took it to a large scenario game. At the game the gun failed, and I was unable to make it work properly. It simply dumped the CO2, The company is saying that the valve was faulty... but after 4-5 mags any gun that fails obviously has some problem.

So far my experience with the smaller pistols has been rather pathetic., Tac-8 had major clip sealing issues, and the rap p99 simply failed before real use.

At this point I am simply going to purchase a stock class phantom for LESS money, to get a light mobile gun platform.
Conclusion: I would not purchase it, while it really had potential and had me so excited to play, it ended up breaking before I had a chance to use it during play. That lack of quality is just to shabby for me to really recomment its use.
I was rather sad to see that this is produced by a company and sold by rap 4 without them ever saying its not there own product.
I am giving it a three... not a 1 Because if it works and doesnt break it still would be a great gun.. But I the failure I saw is a big quality control issue. Furthermore the factory nor the retailer (rap4) have been good about letting me return the pistol, I purchased a new pistol to replace the P99, and hence do not want the P99 anymore. For a repair they all expected me, as the buyer to cover any shipping costs. Which is pretty pathetic considering it has a warranty and failed before any real use.
Overall, buy a .68 cal pistol and just accept the not as coolness of it.

3 out of 10

your sealing oring was not propely oiled, a drop of oil in before each 12 gram would have prevented this

While I disagree with the final rating, I understand that a critical failure is the big deal killer for a lot of people. It's a real bummer that they wanted you to pay shipping, but I haven't run across that many companies (in paintball or otherwise) that would foot the bill for you as part of the return policy. Been there, it sucks.
Have you tried replacing the oring that Stan suggested? it might be worth a shot. Failing that, do you still have the P99? I'm looking for an extra pistol, maybe we can work out a deal.

All in all, thanks for posting your thoughts on this. It's good to hear some honest feedback without a bunch of garbage :)

I see that desertfox1313 has had a very similar situation as mine. Very interesting...
