Review: I first got this gun at cup. There were only a few and I was lucky to get one. But this gun was great. There were no bugs with it and it shot great. The UL frame is very comfortable and will help you play better. It took a little time getting used to the new REG. Here is the review.

Speed: This guns max ROF capability is 30BPS. With tadao its unlimi9ted but this gun is fast. Unfortunatly the day I got it, I couldnt use semi because I was playing D2 Xball. When I did shoot semi it was easy to keep a consistant ROF. The triiger has a smooth pull and there are a lot of adjustments you can make to get it to your liking.

Accuracy: This is the most accurate gun i have other than my DM7. Ball will follow ball after ball. This gun has awsome accuracy. Now that I have the gun at home her is the accuracy test. I shot a a pair of old goggles from about 50-60 ft. Every ball was right in the grill. Make sure your bore size matches your paint size. If the bore is to big it wont be as accurate. I reccomend just using the stock 689. size.

Air efficiency: This gun only gets through a Halo and 4 pods before you air up again. In the middle of a point in our game, I ran out of air at a bad time and cost our team the point. I would reccomend a new bolt.

Weight: This gun is incredibly light. It makes it easier to gun fight, and get good snap shots. You dont have to worry about heaviness.

Size: This gun is very low profile. Its one of the shortest guns out there. This is extremely important especially if you play xball. This gun will not stick out while playing the mini X's. When I played snake, the side of my gun was not sticking out. The biggest target was my hopper which is great.

Maintenence: It is very simple to work on this gun. I dont have a lot of experience with maintence on this gun because there was no need to. EDIT: This gun is pretty easy to strip down. The fuse bolt is not hard at all to change orings. IMPORTANT: the most common oring you will change is the #17 oring.

Adjustability: There are many things to adjust and you can easily find the right setup even though its fine stock. With the stock board I reccomend this set up.
Trigger sensitivity: 1-3.
MROF: 30 (in semi)
Conclusion: This is a great gun and worked extremely well for me. The effiancy on this gun wasnt good but that will change with an orange bolt. IF YOU HAVE A DM7 OR DM6 THAN YOU DO NOT NEED TO UPGRADE. I cant blame Dye for making it too similar but really, what is there to improve(other than gas efficiency. A great gun. I hope this review helped.
