Review: Like all AGD products the tac-one does not disappoint in any stretch of the imagination. It is built solid as a rock, no cheap plastic parts or anything like that. It comes stock with sticky grips and just feels like it was built specifically for your hand when you hold it for the first time. This just carries over into how comfortable the marker is to use and just makes it something you love to fire.

Performance
Breaks - I have probably shot about 5,000 balls through this gun and I have NEVER had one break. My paint choices have ranged from PMI premium and PMI big ball to JT Recon. In other words all middle of the road .68 caliber balls and all of them have fired fine without break and on target. The Level 10 bolt which comes stock with the tac-one I'm sure has alot to do the lack of breaks. For those who don't know the Level 10 system is designed by AGD to be the completely mechanical/pneumatic solution to electronic eyes. Amazing technology.

Consistancy - This gun is pretty consistant as far as shot grouping even with the stock barrel. In fact in one day of woodsball play I actually shot 8 times and all of them were hits for eliminations. The marker is also consistent in other areas. In my experience when the velocity is dialed in and chrono'd it really seems to hold to the chrono time after time without any readjustment. It also just consistantly works. I spend the first 30-45 minutes when we hit the field helping my friends get their markers actually firing, to stop leaking air etc. Then when we're done with that I simply gas up my marker, fill my hopper, fire like 2 test shots and I'm ready to go in like 2 minutes. I'm serious it is THAT reliable.

ONLY TROUBLE - The ONLY trouble I've ever had with this marker was right out of the box which I happened to order directly from AGD. The issue was it was internally leaking air and within the Level 10 bolt system. It turns out this is a pretty common occurence and with all markers there seem to be a little break-in period to get it tuned just right. I spent some time getting the Bolt tuned and have never looked back or had ANY down time due to marker trouble.

I have spent time and frustration on countless electronic guns and decided mechanical was the way to go. I literally came here to pbreview and searched "high end mechanical markers", sorted by average rating, discovered the Tac-One, read some reviews, bought it and have not been disappointed.
Conclusion: I recommend this marker over ANY marker including the most popular/common ones out there. It is the most reliable gun as far as "always working" I've ever seen and I'm constantly around the most popular markers. You name them I've seen them have their share of issues. The mil-sim body and potential add-ons with the rail system coupled with its reliablty and durability make this the perfect woodsball/scenario marker and should be at the heart of any woodsballers setup.
