It is a heavy marker, but with a remote it's lighter.
First of all, I've been playing for a 15 years, mostly woodsball, I try out many markers, they each have their weaknesses and strengths, I don't have one brand preferred to another.
This is a nice sniper marker and very precise at 100 feet (distance tested). Shot 400 paintballs without a break in almost automatic mode.
I already read a little about this marker. I wanted to try this one, since most woodsball players use Tippmann products up here in Canada. This guns shoots great out of the box, almost no adjustments to be done, the Ripclip is a little confusing to install, but it fits nice and snug on the marker. The bi-pod is also a little tricky... but hey, nothing is perfect! The looks on this marker are great, I can't wait to walk on the field and see the fear in my adversaries masks! Sling and remote are a must
See you on the fields!
I forgot the expansion chamber, but will be ordering it soon + the cocking handle cover... always nice to cover that area and not get paint inside. I'm simply amazed about this marker... if I do find weaknesses, I'll post them here ASAP!
Well I got to test the Iron Horse today on the field in mid extreme conditions... using CO2, winter paintballs (Frostbite) and used hot pads to keep my CO2 warm... (it worked very well).
Using a remote is a must... but it's actually a little annoying if you're using the sling at the same time. The marker on the other end worked great through the day... It broke a paintball when I put a "cold" CO2 tank... can't wait to get my nitro!
It's a heavy marker, but it's fun to use, the Apex was a breeze to operate and really fun to shoot with.
The electronic trigger works amazing and scares the hell out of my adversaries!
It was worth every buck I put on it! I highly recommend it!
